    It is a mono amplifier. What is the problem wiring it?

    Do you mean you are adding subs, and not sure how?

    Reply with the make/model and voicecoil configuration and we can be of more assistance.

Te dual inputsm are tied together on the output side thus having a "MONO" amp. Most class D anps are stable down to 1 ohm (check your manuel) therefore, 2 2ohm subs are a 1 ohm load. 2 DVC (dual voice coil) 4 Ohm on each voice coil will give each sub a 2 ohm load so 2 dual4 ohm V's will give you a 1 ohm load as well. Parrallel all conections.

What subs do you have? Is this amp 1 ohm ono stable?

Be sure the RCA cables are attached and in good condition.
Be sure the remote wire from the deck is hooked up and good.
Be sure the GAIN control is turned up.
Volume on head unit is up. Make sure BASS options are not turned off on deck.
Be sure wires are going the right way. + to + & - to -
Loose wires in the box. Make sure subs are hooked to the terminals inside box.
Check all fuses on amp to determine if 1 or more i blown.

Wiring options


Yor best bet is to wire each one positive to neg to get 8ohms then pos-pos and neg-neg to get 2.66 ohms. Otherwise series parallel. If you wire them all pos-pos and neg-neg you will be running .66ohms and will most certainly fry your amp or it will overheat and shut down all the time

This feature allows the amp to be paired to any stereo. The input may be in stereo but the amp then changes it back into mono using sound from both sides. Hope this answers your question.

AMP


That amplifier is only stable to 2 ohms.
You will only be able to use one Dual 4 ohm Subwoofer wired in parallel (all + to + on amp.... all - to - on amp.
This will yield a 2 ohm mono load.

It is impossible to wire (2) dual 4 ohm voicecoils to achieve a 2 ohm mono load.

If you're set on using both subwoofers - they will not be getting as much power from your amplifier with a 4 ohm load - but it is your only option.

Want to bridge my subs I have a kenwood kac-719


from what i have read about your amp, it is already a mono amp, and rated for 2 ohm's, so all you have to do is wire the subs in parallel (both positives together to positive and both negatives together to negative) or series/parallel if you have dual voice coils (both positive and both negative paired on each sub, then positive from amp to positive on one sub; negative on that sub to positive on next sub; then negative on sub to negative on amp) Note though, with two dual voice coil subs, you can have a 1 ohm load with the first set up, which can damage your amp. Let me know if this helps :)

KAC-9104D output terminals


ok i have the same amp and 1 2ohm dvc sub and was woundering the same thing but from futher research and askin sum xsperts. What i found out is that it is only one channel and even tho there are 2 (+) and 2(-) they actually connect inside the amp makein it one . so if u wanted to wire sumthing parralel u wouldnt have to hook wires from one coil to the other on the speaker , u can just hook it up to the amp. so basically both +'s and negatives on the amp are actually one within it so all the power if you only use one set of them and if u wanna add more subs its just easier to add to the amp by using the xtras .
