Your speakers aren't strong enough to handle the current from the amp, 8" speakers connected to an 800 watt amp? You need MORE SPEAKER than that.

How much watts does a JL audio 10w0-8 have?


the 10w0-8 are 8 ohm speakers and rated rms is 125 watts, an amp running 300 watts is perfect and you need to wire it in series to pull a 4 ohm load from your amp. if amp is larger than 300 watts rms it will kill the w0's in a quick minute.

I am wondering what amp i would need for 2 JL Audio W3v3 - 2ohms. I am looking for something around 200. SHould I go with the Mono block and how many watts?


well you can go a couple different directions. you can wire them parallel or in series. parallel will get you down to about 1.3 ohms at the amp and series will get you close to 4 ohms. you need an amplifier thats stable at either of those impedances. the lower the resistance (impedance) the more power your going to get to the subs. I manage an electronics store and specialize in mobile audio/video. we are a 'Signature JL Audio Dealer' so i like to say i know the product line very well. JL makes an amplifier that is stable from 1.5 to 4 ohms and will put out the same amount of power at any impedance in that range which is really nice. Its called their 'Slash Series' you are looking for a JL Audio 500/1 amplifier. Grab an 8 gauge amp kit (4 gauge would over do it) and wire 'em up. Enjoy!

Which amp goes with 2 jl audio w3v3 4 ohm


Choosing a amp isn't always easy but it first begins with what you want.

--RMS of the speakers is what you want to use to find your amp.
That's going to tell you what watt's your speakers can REALLY handle @ 4 ohms.
--Also what you want to spend $$$ will determine how clear it sounds.
--I prefer a Rockford Fosgate amp for base and kenwood for highs.
--Also look at the RMS watt's rating to find the proper power and go a bit beyond what you want so that the amp performs with ease.
--Last but not least you chose the amp for how many speakers you are going to connect to that amp. For example if you are using 2 JL audio 12" for subs, then a mono amp is perfect. But if you are connecting 4 speakers, you should begin to find the amp with four channels so that you obtain left, right , front and rear sound.

Who to wire JL audio 12w6 to its max


Hello shermalestuc,

The JL Audio 12w6 v2-D4 has dual 4 ohm voice coils that can be wired for either a final load to the amp of 2 ohms (parallel) or 8 ohms (series).

If your amp is 2 ohm stable, the best power solution for a single sub is to use the parallel configuration, both positives and both negatives together and then to the amp.

How can i make my jl audio 12w3-d6 into a 4 ohms


it depends if the amp is mono or stereo and if it is bridged. if it is bridged the amp cant handle the speaker the best way is to lower the level on the amp or connect it to only one channel. also you might want to check your ground cable use a thick one and make sure its making good contact with the chassis. this happened to me. luck

I have two volfenhag 1000 watts speakers


If you are looking for some serious sound try using a Rockford Fosgate P3001T Amplifier.. it pushes 3000W Max its a 4 channel amplifier. Or you could go with something small. I have two JL Audio 10s in my car running with a 600W 2 Channel MTX Amp.

JL AUDIO 12W7-3 SUB


the rottem electronic smell is the voice coil burned up as well as the bad sound, isn't the 1st time i have seen a JL sub blown. not worth fixing buy a new one the cost is not that much more repair on them is 250 - 450 depending on how bad it is and only JL can do the repairs as they dont authorize repair shops access to their voice coils. however i can sell you a new sub with full JL factory warranty drop shipped to your door for about 475$ or I could do you a way better sub ( the baddest competion sub made in the last 5 years) an olympus 2412 dual 2 ohm 5000 watt monster that has user replaceable voice coil options and is killing the competition circuit right now for about $275.00 shipped. it will stomp 2 13 w7's into the ground all day long. 2 subs vs just 1

Hooking up three 12 in w3v2


It depends on how much power/watts and ohms your amp is stable at if it stable at a 1/2 ohm then you can bridge them in series and this will lower the ohms of the speakers to 2 ohms
