    I'm going to use my old (but VERY unused) Orion XTR 12 - (dual voice coil) which will give me the option of 8 Ohms (connected in series) or (close to) 2 Ohms (in parallel)
    R series=R1 R2, R parallel = 1/ 1/R1 1/R2 (a calculator has this function)

    The original woofer (although smoked,) measures 6.5 Ohms, so an 8 Ohm woofer is a safe bet. Now, if I only knew HOW to get the old Paradigm woofer OUT of this box... It's pretty glued in there...

Have a blown vintage polk audio psw50 subwoofer 8". Cannot find the value of the Ohms. Could you please provide this info and make recs for best place to replace this sub that is most cost efficient....


It measures in at just under 4 ohms, so assume a 4 ohm speaker. You can replace this with any number of similar subs, using perennial DIY favorite PartsExpress, there are two under $30 that would meet your needs (Dayton SD215-88 and Goldwood GW408). Looks like they both have dual 8 ohm coils, so you would simply wire them in parallel for your application.

Power light comes on but no sound :(


Good amp but gave me nightmares because of cliping and power protect. if wired correctly then your sub might be blown check subs by using a multimeter and check ohms. No ohms means its blown. Ohms vary between subs. double check Rca inputs as well I just hook up my comp speakers to do this.

How do i wire mtx 9500 subs 2 10'' down to a one ohm


THE T9510-04 SUBS ARE SINGLE COIL SUBS AND YOU CAN VIEW THAT WIRING DIAGRAM AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:

THE T9510-44 SUBS ARE DUAL VOICE-COIL SUBS AND YOU CAN VIEW THAT WIRING DIAGRAM AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:
http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/subwoofers/TechData_T9510-44.pdf

SINCE YOU NEED A 1 OHM LOAD, I PRESUME BRIDGED AND ARE USING TWO SUBS, THEN HOPEFULLY YOU HAVE THE DUAL VOICE COIL TYPE, AS THEY ARE DUAL 4 OHM AND YOU WILL HAVE TO CONNECT THE VOICE-COILS IN PARALLEL WHICH WILL MAKE EACH SPEAKER A 2 OHM SPEAKER AND THEN CONNECT THE TWO SPEAKERS THEMSELVES IN PARALLEL AND THIS WILL PROVIDE YOU THE 1 OHM LOAD. IF YOU IN FACT HAVE THE SINGLE 4 OHM VOICE COIL VERSION, THEN IT WILL ONLY PARALLEL THE PAIR DOWN TO 2 OHMS. OK. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

I have blown-up my JBL rear woofer 86160 - 26W and 3.7 OHM. I am having difficulty finding the exact same woofer again and hence wanted to know is there a replacement i can use. I understand the meaning of...


I just replaced my blown sub in my Avalon xls with a Kicker 07C84 and it works great. For the same price of a repair kit, you can just buy this new speaker. Why go through the hassle of repairing a 9 year old speaker. This speaker fits into the same cutout of the old speaker. All I did was splice the red and black wires within the factory plastic housing so I could still use the factory connector.

Replacing sub speaker


I wouldn't try reinventing it by replacing the driver. Drivers and their enclosures are designed to work together. And this being a self-amplified subwoofer, there is one more piece that's electrically optimized to the rest. Don't mess with it.

Why don't you just set your receiver's individual relative speaker volume levels so the sub isn't weak by comparison to your other speakers? Weakness, as you call it, is relative.

Is your receiver properly channeling Low Frequencies to the sub? Experiment with the cutoff, too.

This problem doesn't require meatball surgery.

System cutting out


Pull the subs out of the box and check the connections... Check to see if the wires running from the connectors on the sub itself to the voice coil... had a JL 10 that had a frayed wire to the voice coil system would cut in and out. Hope its helpful

1999 explorer stock subwoofer


I would be very proud of that truck as the sub that came with the truck was only a 8". The only one that works is the factory model as it is a 1 1/2 - 2 ohm speaker; replacements are 4ohm. You will have to replace the amp as well if you put in an aftermarket sub. Oh and apparently the amp will have to have "speaker level" inputs as opposed to pre-amp inputs. I have a 1999 Eddie Bauer wih a blown sub and I'm trying to decide what to do as well. The speaker is $400 with tax in Canada! Good luck.

Alpine pdx 1.1000 amp


These subs are dual voice coil I'm sure...make sure they are putting a 2 ohm load on the amp total, and also set your gain and frequency setting right. Set the frequency around 85 or 90, make sure the lo pass filter is on. Turn the gain ALL the way down and turn your stereo to the point right before your speakers distort....then slowly increase the gain until the subs are playing at full volume. This should not even be close to all the way up, and the subs should sound accurate and bold. Turning them past this point will cause distortion, in which case you should back off the gain a bit. Distortion causes power to cycle through the amp very rapidly and can cause blown subs and blown fuses. If you do not know how to wire both subs for a combined load of 2 ohms, please let me know what type of subs you have.
