Series is +amp to +1, -1 to +2 , -2 to -amp . This way you have wired the two voice coils into one higher impedance voice coil.

What is the best way to wire two kicker comp r 12' s to a two channel amp for max bass?


First, you need to know whether you have the 2 ohm DVC subs or 4 ohm DVC subs. Second, you need to know the minimum impedance the amp can handle (most are 2 ohm, some are less). Putting two voice coils in parallel will cut the total impedance in half (e.g. 2x 4 ohm voice coils in parallel = 2 ohms total). Putting subs in parallel will also cut the impedance in half.
At one end of the spectrum, you could put the 2 ohms DVCs in parallel, then parallel the two subs, and bridge the 2 channels of the amp. That would put 0.5 ohms impedance on the 1 bridge amp channel. If the amp can do 0.5 ohms x 1ch, do it. Otherwise, you may have to run the subs on separate channels.

What would be the right wiring on a cvr 12 to 4 ohms i am running a hifonics 2000 class D thanx for the help


Assuming that you have a 4 Ohm Dual Voice Coil (DVC) sub, you should wire it in parallel for more output. Solid red connects to red with white dot, and goes from solid red to amp positive (+). Solid black connects to black with white dot, and goes from white dot to amp negative (-). For a good diagram, go to this link: http://kicker.com/dvc_wiring

Need help.. I have two 12 inch dual voice coil kicker comp vrs.. they are 4 ohm subs..how do i wire them to get a final ohm load between 1.5 to 4ohms in a dual enclosed box...Im hooking them up to a jl 500...


To do this they MUST be wired in parallel, IE: Plus to Plus, Negative to Negative. 2 4 OHMS in parallel is about 2 OHMS in series it would be 8 OHMS... series is positive to negative. Are you using a crossover network?

Best way to connect a 15'' kicker cvr15 4 ohm dvc [single sealed box] and a volfenhag zx-4712 1000w 12'' 4ohm+4ohm dvc to my pyle 885 1000w 4 ch. bridgeable amp and how to wire the voice coils that are in...


best way is to just run the volfenhag with a set of wires for 2 channells(one set per coil) left and right @ 4 ohms per channell. The CVRs you can parallel the coils(2 ohms) and run a set from each sub to the amp in stereo left and right. This will give the kickers a little more juice than the 12 but should be fine.

Can i hook up my sub if it's wired to a 2 ohm and my amp is 4 ohm


Hi martineztag
You should never connect a load of an impedance less than the min the amp is able to drive. This can have disastrous consequences that may easily result in failure of the amps output stages. You need to use a different configuration that does not overload the amp in this manner for safe operation.

I have an Audiobahn A8000T amp and 2 12" Kicker CVR (DVC) Dual voice Coil. The Subwoofers are 2OHM a peice. What is the best way to hook this all up to run a 2 OHM load to my subs?


This is a link to Kicker for your CVR12 Subs...if you have the 2 ohm version (2 ohms per voice coil) and you have 2 speakers ....you will need to wire EACH speakers voice coils in series to get 4 ohms from each speaker and then wire the 2 speakers in parallel.....as in....2 ohms in series with 2 ohms = 4 ohms....both speakers wired same way, then in Parallel with each other = 2 ohm load. Page 2 of this link gives examples of both series and parallel wiring of your speaker.

How do i wire two kicker l7 dual 2 ohm subs to play on a mtx 7801 class d amplifier


Hello moore_broder,

Your MTX 7801 is stable at 1 ohm, but you cannot wire a pair of DVC 2 ohm subs to that impedance. They can only be wired to 1/2 ohm which is too low or to 2 ohms.

Series the voice coils and parallel the subs. On each sub, jumper Black to Red/White Dot, then run both red's (positive) and both black/white dot's (negative) to your amp terminals.

The diagram is here.

Hope this helps.

I need to know how to wire my 2 12' kenwood w3514 dvc sub woofers parellel


For parallel connections, simply wire posotive to positive and negative to negative. But beware! this lowers the impedence (ohms) by half. In other words if you have 4 ohm woofers, in parallel they would be two ohms. Make sure your amp can handle that. Otherwise connect them in series.

Wiring woofers


Well, you have the 4 ohm dvc kickers, and your amp being stable to 2 ohms doesn't go together very well. If you wire the voice coils in series, and hook the speakers to the amp in parallel, you get 4 ohms, which doesn't use all the power your amp is capable of. If you run the voice coils and the speakers in parallel, you'll drop the resistance to 1 ohm, and probably fry the amp, or at least deal with overheating issues. Better be safe than sorry. You need to run each speaker in series, which means running a positive and negative to each speaker, and a jumper from those terminals to the opposite colored terminals on the second voice coil. Diagram can be seen here: http://www.kicker.com/06/tech-support/manuals/manuals/02SoloBaricL7manual.pdf That puts two 4ohm voice coils in series, and raises the resistance of each speaker to 8 ohms. Then, you have to run both speakers in parallel to the amp. When you run two 8 ohm circuits in parallel, the total resistance of the circuit is 4 ohms. That means seperate positive and negative wires to each speaker. If it is a mono amp, connect both negatives to the negative output, both positives to the positive output. If it is a multi-channel bridgeable amp, You'll probably connect the negatives to one side output (right for example) then connect the positives to the opposite side output (left for example). If you need to bridge your amp, make sure it is bridgeable, and also that you have the speakers bridged to the proper amp outputs. If not sure, reply back here with the amp model number, and maybe I can help you further.Thanks, and I hope this solves your problem.
