Sub Selectroin Right now i have 2 Memphis 12s with a 1200 watt amp. I also have a Memphis 500d amp, and am looking for some good subs for it. The 12s don't hit the highs very well, and i need to know what a good high hitting sub is.

    scottie: still need more info. telling me the price paid means nothing. memphis has a large line of speakers. also a sub-woofer box mounted in the back won't deliver clean highs, it's not suppose to. you need additional speakers in system for that purpose. subs are meant to play freqs of 120 hertz & lower depending upon design.

    peace-out

Try to find a the specs for a box for those subs. A box has a great deal to do with highs, mids and lows.

What would the best way hooking up a 15" memphis dual voice coil sub ran with a 1000 watt memphis d amplifier??


If the amp is a 2 channel I would hook up each voice coil to a different channel. Also, make sure you hook your amp up as close to the sub as possible. With a sub that size you need to eliminate any delay in signal transfer because the sub is so larg.

Getting my son a sony xplod xm-1652 2 channel what subs would sound good and the things says 1000x2 and 500x2 what is the truth


165 watts x 2 @ 4ohms and 200-230 watts@ 2 ohms or 400-460 watts bridged into a 4 ohm mono load is what the amp will actually do. A single 12 inch sub or a pair of 10 inch subs or 12s would be great

How i wire my sub to my jbl gto301-1iiamp with 2 Hifonics HFi12D4


If the amp is 1200 watts at 2 ohm stable you will want to set up the speakers as parrallel and bridge the amp. That means conncect the speakers with + to + and - to -. Look at the amp connections. Usually thereare connects that look like this:
+ -
+ - + -

If yours look like this use the diagram on top. You will use the + for the left ouput on the amp to the right - on the amp. This will allow you to use all the power from the amp. Be sure to lower the gain as to not pop the speakers or amp.

Zx-8400 amp too much for zx-4812?


The amp and sub combo should work fine the subs can really take a crapload of power-i have a neighbor thats running 1200 watts rms to each sub in his caddy and OMG- its sick. Your amp should be pushing around 800 watts rms(continous) to the sub which should do very well-my concern with your setup is that the sub is designed for a vented box- you can use any box u want but im just suggesting that you use a good solid vented box with these subs- my other concern with your setup is that having only the single sub if its a dual coil 4ohm + 4ohm coils then you might run into trouble if you dont have it set up right-by that meaning to get all the power handling capability of the sub you would want to use both of the coils right? well to do that you have to either wire the coils in series or wire the coils in parallel right? In series the coils will yield an 8 ohm load to the amp and youll only get about 400 watts from the amp bridged into that 8 ohm load- on the other side of that if you wire the coils in parallel then the cols yield a 2 ohm load and that could cause the amplifier to become unstable and fry its little guts. All of this is assuming that the amp is made to run bridged at 4 ohms- if it is 2 ohm stable in bridged mode than you have nothing to worry about. Now the popping noise- that sounds like its coming from the amp somehow and just feeding through to the sub-like you ive never heard a sub popping unless its bottoming out and you say its not so its gotta be the amp id say-if it were me id check all power connections especially the ground for the amp . It could be that on the heavy bass notes that your amp is not getting enough juice -throw a 3.5 farad capacitor on the power line and see if that helps your system out-

THERE IS NOT 2 RCA HOOK UPS FOR THE SUBS HOW KAN I HOOK UP MY AMP SO MY 2 12S WILL HIT


If there's only a single sub-out RCA cable, you have two options. The amp may have a manual switch that puts it in Mono mode, in which case you only use 1 of the 2 RCA jacks. The other option is to go get an RCA splitter. This will take your single sub-out cable and feed the exact same signal to both left/right of your amp. Either way, you get the same result. If the 1200W amp is for your sub(s) only, you should set the high-pass filter and subsonic filters to help your bass "hit harder" and cleaner.

Is it enough to power to 12 volge=ahagen 12oowatss dual 4 ohms


your Volfenhag 12" subs are rated at 1200 watts they are only 600 watts rms and the Rockford punch p4004 is only 200 watts rms so the answer is yes it will work but if you get a amplifier that pushes out 500 - 600 watts rms you will love the sound from subs
there is nothing wrong with the Rockford amp it just wont pound out the bass as hard but the good news is you will never blow the subs with it
when buying amps or subs make sure to look at rms rating that is the true power they actually have ie. (sub box says 1200 watt you think powerful but if you divide it in 1/2 you actually get 600 watts rms) don't get me wrong that's a nice rating. for a sub but you will want to match that number with the amps rms rating or lower. The RMS is what makes the car pound the higher the RMS the better
hope this helps

Running 4 12s with two insignia 1000 watt amps


Use a pair of two-channel amps that are two-ohm stable, and wire a pair of subs to each amp. Wire them in parallel so the amps see two ohms (wiring in series will show four ohms). Doing this effectively "doubles" the power of the amps. If the amps are not two-ohm stable, they'll fail. Parallel wiring means putting the positive wire of sub 1 to the positive terminal of channel 1 on the amp, and the negative wire of sub 1 on the negative terminal of channel 2. Do the opposite for the second sub. This will give you a LOT of bass response as long as your sub enclosures are properly sized for the speakers.
