Question about Phoenix Gold Xenon-200.4 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Ok, I have a pair of infinity dual voice coil 12" subs, and a pair of audiobahn quad voice coil 12" subs. Boths sets of speakers can handle 450w. Which set of 12's would be best to hook up to this amp, and should I bridge them down to half the amp, or bridge one speaker to half the amp, and the other to the other half to get the most sound and power from this amp? thanks, Mike

I recomend you just use the best single woofer in a well built box and that will give you better sound at lower gain volumes it sounds like you have too much junk laying around but to get good bass run your sub at 2 ohms if the amp is stable at that impedence

Hi this is amber I have 2x4 ohm qvc audiobahn abass2012P how would I correctly run them to get best bass n max power efficiency I have a soundstream Picasso 1000watt 4 channel bridge able amp to hook em up...


I assume you are replacing the built-in Audiobahn power amplifier with your 4 channel Soundstream amp. If so, you can set the Soundstream for bridge mode which should net you 2 high power channels of 250Wrms@4ohms or 500Wrms total power (if the speakers are quad VC), or alternatively, non bridged for 4x125Wrms (if the speakers are dual VC). You can see why below.
Next, you need to confirm each subwoofers coil configuration as follows: If each woofer is quad, there will be 8 connectors; if dual VC, then there will be 4 connectors. For dual VC, if each VC is 4ohm, you can choose between 8 or 2 ohms by series or parallel wiring. If each VC is 2 ohm, you can have 4 ohms in series to use. This can be determined with an ohm meter across one set of VC terminals. If you can get 4 ohm for each speaker, this will allow you to use the 2 channel bridged mode with each speaker getting the full 250W. If each VC is 2 ohm, use non bridged mode and run each of the 4 channels to each VC. For this case, use a 2 to 1 RCA jack to sum the two channels for each speaker on the amp's input side to make the signal 2 channel instead of 4 channel. Below are examples of quad and dual VC for reference only, the wiring may not match your setup which will depend on your VC resistance (impedance) measurement. Don't forget to set your HPF(High Pass Filter) as this is a subwoofer setup.

I got 8 terminals on a my 15 audiobahn sub how do i hook at 2ohm load


Yes audiobahn do make a QUAD coil, and some people get confused with the - - + + on the terminal, This is called a dual lug, Check out Audiobahn.com and go to tech suport. Thier you can look up the wiring diagram for this sub... TRUST ME hope this was helpful positive feed back be nice lol

How do i hook up the voice coils up to 2ohm stable?


depends on the impedance of the coils on your subs and if they are single coils or dual coils. If you are trying to achieve a 2 ohm load then a pair of 4 ohm coils in parallel will do the job.If you have dual 4 ohm coils on your subs then you will have to use only one coil from each sub which will still give you the 2 ohm load that you seek but it will affect the power handling of the subs by half as you are only using half of the coils.

2 sets of pos. and negs. on 10" infinity reference 1052w


This means you have a dual voice coil sub. It is probably a dual 4 ohm voice coil. If you hook up the left channel to one input and the right to the other you can safely push the sub but the amp will be running at a lower efficency. In other words it isn't the best amp for the job because it can't push max power to a dual voice coil speaker but it will work.

Alpine mrd m500 amp is not pushing my 12 in infinity sub


If you have a dual voice coil sub, make sure that you have the positive and negative terminals connected properly. If you have ONE of the coils wired backwards, it will cause the speaker to produce little or no sound.

Have you set the gains properly?

Are you sure the amplifier is receiving a strong signal from the head unit?

Have you tried it with a different speaker?

Is it enough


Audiobahn subs are not too powerful and they can not handle too much continuous RMS, be careful they will heat up and tear off the voice coils off ur subs. run about 100 - 150 RMS at 75 HZ to each sub and keep the gains at about 3/4 this way you will avoid blowing out your subs. It also depends on the amp? What kind of amp is it?

 

Let me know if you wish. Otherwise
