Also check to make sure that your RCA interconnects are good. If you are using interconnects that have a screw on top piece, make sure that they are all tight. This can induce all kinds of noise.

Can you bridge 2 4 ohm kicker speakers to a mtx thunder 7801 amp?


Ya. Just hook one sub to your amp (bridged) and hook the other sub (positive and negative) to the first subs positive and negative

I own a mtx 1501d.Also own a 18


THE AMPLIFIER NEEDS A 1 OHM LOAD AND YOU HAVE THE RIGHT SPEAKER TO PROVIDE THIS LOAD. THE AMPLIFIERS TERMINAL STRIP PROVIDES YOU WITH 2 POSITIVES AND 2 NEGATIVES, BUT THEY ARE ONLY FOR CONVENIENCE WHEN WIRING 2 DRIVERS. ACTUALLY THE 2 POSITIVES ARE THE SAME CONNECTION INTERNALLY ON THE BOARD, AS WELL AS THE 2 NEGATIVES. THAT BEING SAID, THE SIMPLEST WAY TO CONNECT YOUR SPEAKER IS TO PARALLEL THE VOICECOILS IN THE BOX BY CONNECTING THE 2 POS. TOGETHER AND THE 2 NEG. TOGETHER THEN RUN THAT POS. AND NEG. OUT OF THE BOX AND SIMPLY CHOOSE EITHER OF THE 2 POS AND NEG. OF YOUR CHOICE AT THE AMP. IF YOU EVER HAVE TO ADD A SUB, THEN YOU WILL HAVE 2 MORE TERMINAL LEFT OVER ON THE AMP. TO CONNECT IT TO AT THAT TIME. BY ALL MEANS, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RUN EACH COIL SEPARATELY OUT OF THE BOX AND CONNECT THEM TO ALL 4 TERMINALS, THEN THIS IS FINE TOO, AS EITHER WAY, THERE WILL BE NO DIFFERENCE WHATSOEVER. LET ME KNOW IF I CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE....V

1501d,, What subs should i use/


I would stick with Kicker or MTX. The best place in my mind to get them is soncelectronix.com
Just try to mach the specs as close as possible. Make sure to look at the recommendations of the subs for the size of the box and the port volume.

Most power out of amp w/out blowing subs


you may only be able to get but so much out of the subs. If you turn the bass down a little so the that you dont drive the subs so hard you may get a little more wattage out of them

My mtx thunder 1501d car amp making noise in the subwoofers


This is common with pioneer head units, the rca jacks are not properly grounded and this lets engine noise come through the rcs cables. This thread explains a fix http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=337644.

Makeing poping noise


Although open shields on the head unit generally cause MTX amps to squeal, it can sometimes cause the symptoms you described. To check the shields, you will need a multimeter. The procedure is on the following page:

Testing for Open Shields on RCA Signal Cables

If the shileds are OK, we will have to check a few other things.
