How To Bi-Amp And Bi-Wire Speakers!


What is the difference between bi-wiring and bi-amping?
Bi-wiring is using the same power source (amplifier) but separately connecting that power source to a woofer and a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

Bi-amping is using two separate power sources (amplifiers) and connecting one amplifier to a woofer and the other amplifier to a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

How do I bi-wire?
Your speaker must have two separate positive and negative connections (one set for the woofer and one set for the midrange/tweeter). Connect one wire between the positive terminal on the amplifier/receiver the positive terminal on the speaker. Connect the other wire from the negative terminal on the amplifier/receiver to the corresponding negative terminal on the speaker. Remove the jumper straps connecting the two sets of speaker inputs. Repeat this process for the second set of terminals on the speaker, connecting them to the same positive and negative terminals on the receiver/amplifier. Repeat the steps for each speaker you wish to Bi-Wire, connecting them to the appropriate terminals on your receiver/amplifier.

How do I bi-amp?
Bi-amping is similar to bi-wiring, but involves separate amplifiers: one for the woofer and one for the midrange/tweeter. Passive bi-amping involves a direct hookup between each amplifier and the speaker terminals. True bi-amping involves hooking the preamp to an electronic crossover that replaces the passive crossover network in the speaker. The active crossover then connects to multiple power amplifiers.

How to determine the postive and negitive wires for the Targus APV10US1 100W Slim Line Mobile Inverter 150Watt Power Supply


With colour coded wires, red is + and black is - . On the two pole connectors part the + is the inner one and - is the outer node surrounding it. If you're not sure take the connector off and check which wire goes where. Red is always +. Better yet, use a DC tester or make your own using a LED of sufficient current rating (12V in your case). With all diodes current only goes one way from + to -, so it'll emit light if it's connected properly and not, if it's not.

D4 lite flashes


Flashing D4 light is an error from the TCU (transmission control unit), so you got something going on with your transmission. If you want to pull the error code, remove the passengers side kick panel and look for a pair of wires with a blue connector at the end. Stick a paper clip or some other piece of wire into each hole of the connector to short the wires. Put your key in the ignition and turn 2 clicks. The D4 light will flash the code...short flashes=1 and long flashes=10. Add the number of short and long flashes to get your code. Errors are below:

0-Transmission control unit (TCU) faulty.
1-Lock-up solenoid 'A' circuit open or shorted.
2-Lock-up solenoid 'B' circuit open or shorted.
3-Throttle Position Sensor circuit open or shorted.
4-Vehicle Speed Sensor open or shorted - No signal from speedometer.
5-Shift Lever Position Switch circuit shorted.
6-Shift Lever Position Switch circuit open.
7-Shift Solenoid 'A' circuit open or shorted.
8-Shift Solenoid 'B' circuit open or shorted.
9-Counter shaft or transmission speed pulse generator open or shorted.
10-Coolant Temperature Sensor open or shorted.
11-Engine RPM (Ignition coil signal) open or shorted.
12-(No code 12 used)
13-Main shaft speed pulse generator open or shorted.
14-Linear (line pressure control) solenoid open or shorted.
15-Kick down switch circuit shorted.

Hope helps.

Palomar 150watt bi-linear amplifier for c.b. radio-won't transmit


3W to 150? Now you got 1 W in and 1W out and a snapped resistor. I would look at the driver and or final, either something heated up bad and cooked the resistor or you might have a break in the pcb.

Good Luck, Tom

Ultra linear ul-600hc


If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following. I'll assume that you've checked the amplifier's on-board fuses.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

How-to connect (wiring) description for Monster Z2 bi-wire speaker cable


If your cable has four ends at one side and two at the other connect positive to the amp and negitive to the amp for first speaker then go to the four cable end put in the first negitive to the top speaker input then the positive side and do the same for the bottom,also remember to take out the links between the sockets,now do the same for the other speaker.
Please note that some speakers dont sound much better when bi-wired but some gain a bit more bass and detail,also the sound stage may open up a little more.
hope this helps.

POWER ACOUSTIK - A1800DB how to fix protection mode


If I don't ask the stupid questions first, I always get burned! Have you tried removing both the +12V and remote connections from the amp and letting it sit for a few minutes? If the amp doesn't automatically reset (and you have removed the condition that caused it in the first place), your amp may need repair, as it might have shorted something internally.
