175W x 2 @ 2 ohms
350W x 1 @ 4 ohm
Your amplifier is not stable @ 2 ohm bridged. So you will have to wire them independantly on each channel.
+/- on sub to +/- on L channel
+/- on sub to +/- on R channel
Wiring the subwoofers in paallel will result in a 2 ohm load, which your amplifier is not rated to do. Doing so will cause heat buildup, and damage to the amplifier.

    If you wish to run the amplifier @ 2 ohm mono (bridged), to wire the subs in parallel, put + to both subs on L+ terminal at amplifier, and - to both subs on R- terminal at amplifier.

    It may be loud for a few minutes, or a few days, but wiring in this fashion will harm the amplifier.

How to wire a 2400w amp to 3 12s subs


if the amp is a 2 channel, u could either bridge them all, or if you wanted to, you could hook 2 speakers to the two seperate channels, and then hook the other one to the negative on one channel and the possitive on the other. if this wasnt what you meant, just, try to tell me more about the amp... thanks

How do you hook up 2 15 inch cvr to 1 ohm


Hello juanelreypla,

If your CVR's have dual 2 ohm voice coils, they can only be wired for 0.5 ohm, 2 ohm, or 8 ohm final loads.

http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/woofer_wizard.asp?submitted=true&woofer_qty=2&woofer_imp=3

If they have dual 4 ohm voice coils, they can be wired to a final load of 1 ohm. Wire the voice coils in parallel and then parallel both subs. Like the diagram in Wiring Option #1 shown here.

I have 2 alpine r type 12's hooked up to a kicker crossover and a NRG 2200 800 watt amp. they are wired series and parallel. when i turn it up the subs sound like the are fluttering. what is going on.


well my friend either your amp is not powerful enough to push your subs or you have a sub that is shorting out cause i just had the same problem with my 2 15 kicker cvr competition subs

I have 2 12 in kicker cvr tryna drop to lower ohm


http://www.colomar.com/Shavano/dvc_spkr_wiring.html

Use the above site for several wiring schematics on dual voice coil speaker hookups. It will show how to wire for different impedance.
Also, I think the CVR 12's come in 2 ohm and 4 ohm impedance. See if you can check yours to determine which you have....

How do i wire 10' kicker cvr


dual 2 or dual 4

dual 2 wire vc's in series for a 4 ohm load each. Hook each speaker seperate channels on the amp.

dual 4 wire vc in series for an 8 ohm load each. Hook both + to the right + on the amp and both - to the left - on the amp. or

dual 4 wire vc in parallel for a 2 ohm load each and hook each speaker to seperate channels on the amp.

Need to know how to wire 2 15 inch cvr to a zx1000.1 amp at 2 ohms


If they are 4 ohm single voice coil subs, just connect all the negatives together and then all the positives together. If they are DUAL vc's then need more info.
