Bought amp on e-bay Elevation DX 2000.1 , hookup to single woofer CVX 15 , 2 ohm. turned on HU , heard pop and mmmm sound , woofer cone pulling down with force and will not release than smell of burning .hook up to different woofer and woofer pulling down again and smokes coming out. Now that woofer don't work Contact seller and he said this is a competition amp and I damage it cause I wired sub in series and also claims I wired amp wrong the way the cone moved inward and denied me a refund. Volume, settings and gain set low. Was this cause.

Wire both hot wires together and both ground wires together then wire them to the amp with the hot on one speaker output and the ground on the other speaker ground. This puts them in the bridged position. Pulls the maximum watts out the amp and unbelievable sound.
the best way? hmm. i would start off with some wire. Keep in mind that you will need to separate the positive (usually red or has a stripe or marking on it) from the negative (Black usually is the common color for this wire) and hook the up according to your amps positive and negative hook ups / terminals following your sub-woofers terminals. then depending on your sub woofers Voice coils (Duel or single voice coils) yours are duel or quad coils but i\'m sure they are duel (2 of each positive and negative equaling a total of 4 posts on each sub-woofer). figure out your amps ohm load handling and does your amp run hot (1,2 or 4 ohm stable some are even less like 0.5 or lower) i would run at a 1 or 2 ohm load as that is usually standard on 1 channel amps. make sure to check your wiring and if your not sure about ohm loads just Google wiring for sub-woofer ohm loads such as 0.5 ohm, 1 ohm, 2 ohm or 4 ohm loads. also make sure your box is not sealed do to the fact they are siht and cant produce sound like a vented / ported enclosure keep the size as big as you can fit in your car or truck the bigger the better. i had one 8\'\' sony sub pounding like a 15\'\' sub real loud . Also MDF particle board is garbage it causes port noise and absorbs water
if your amp is a monoblock 2 ohm stable amp wire the coils positive to positive and negative to negative into a single channel that will create a 2 ohm load turn your amp down and adjust by ear till it sounds good if your amp is a 2 channel amp 4 ohm per channel wire each coil one per channel turn amp down and adjust by ear till sounds good hope i was helpful
Simply put, burned voice coil. Either too much power can do this or not enough power with distortion. solution- if the sound is clear then its too much power- turn the amp down. If the sound is distorted and raspy- its not enough power and your getting distortion-get bigger amp.
1 OHM...ONE... sheesh now thats a low resistance for anything... If they are only 500 watts and they are in parallel, series well NO.. your amp puts out wayyyy too much for those speakers.. 1200w versus 500 watts by 2... srill NOT enough "Head room" for it to be safe... about half is all you could expect before Pop.. sound is heard.
What you need to check is the impedance that you are connecting at. If you are using for sub woofers... you need to check how you wire them up. If you are using bridge mode then make sure that you have a 4 ohm load. This is possible with a single coil woofer which has an impedance of 4 ohm.
If you have a single dvc woofer, then you would have to either wire it up in stereo with a 4 ohm coil to each channel. If you would like to run it in brifge mode then you would have to invest in a single dual 2 ohm sub woofer and connect it with the coils in series thus obtaining a 4 ohm load.
If you have multiple woofers then it becomes more tricky. You can use a channel amp in bridge mode by getting 2 dual 4 ohm dvc woofers. You would have to connect the woofers themselves in parrallel but to the amplifier, you MUST have the woofers in series with each other. Thus getting a 4 ohm bridged load on the amplifier.
Connecting this amplifier any other way can cause it to overheat and fail.
your probably making your amp run to low ohms if its a 2 channel amp bridged to one channel you can probably only run it at four ohms
Also seeing as your subs are 2ohm dvc you can't wire them individually to 2ohm and use each channel separately. So i'd recommend buying a 2ohm stable monoblock or running it at four ohms. a 1400 watt amp'll still pound at 4ohms and it'll extend your amp's life span
Your amp is going into protection. The click you hear is a relay meant to protect your speakers and stereo. Check your speakers with an ohm meter for the the proper ohms ( listed on the speaker ) and physically try to push each woofer and midrange cone in gently to make sure it moves and is not stuck or frozen in place. A speaker may read correctly on an ohm meter if the woofer is ok but if the tweeter or midrange is not working it will cause the amp to go into protection mode. When you play music stick your ear up to each tweeter\midrange\woofer to ensure they are working. Your stereo could also be the culprit although usually if it plays music it is ok as long as you are not hearing loud pops. Loud pops are voltage spikes that indicate that a transistor\IC is breaking down and will eventually short. Good luck!
Check the ohm of your soeakers again. If it doesn't say 2 ohm thats the prob. Keep in mind that 2 ohm can be any where from 1.7 too 2.3 but any reading on you DVOM that gives you two decimal places is also wrong. i.e. 2.17. This would mean that you have a woofer shorted.
If thats not it and you have already fixd a ground then use your meter to check the ground; to do this set the DVOM to ohms and touch one lead to a true gound, by that I mean scratch the paint and primer off of a spot you can hide untill you see bright mirror like metal. Then disconnect the ground wire from the amp and touch the other lead to it. You should read anything from 0.3 to 0.1 any higher and your ground isn't that great.
If thats not it, The only thing left is to hook the amp up out side of the vehicle away and not connected to ANYTHING that has to do with the car. Get a battery and a diskman or a playstation, anything that can pass sound out of RCA's (Maybe even a diff radio if poss). Hook it up. If it works its in the car and let me know. I'll tell you some more to check, If not its the amp. Good Luck
Yes and no lol. I sold that product about three or so years ago. That amplifier is whats called a mono amp. The outside shows two channels but they are still tied together. Think of it as a hose with a Y on it so two lines can run out from it. Its still the same amount of water whether you use both hoses or not. So bridge it if you want to but it will for looks and looks only. Note that amp is only two ohm stable so be careful what woofers you use. You will want two single 4 ohm woofers for a regular instalation. DO NOT USE Dual 4 ohm speakers Good Luck
