You can connect them in a series/parallel configuration. Put two of them in series and then connect the last one in parallel across the two in series. This would give you an impeadance of around 2.7 ohms. Only do this if your amp is stable at 3 ohms or less. I am not familiar with the specs of your amp. If your amp is only 4 ohm stable you can not do this.
This would also give you half the power on the two subs in series as the power for the one that is parallel. The two in series would be sharing the total output signal, where-as the one in parallel would get the entire output signal from the amp.
if you were to connect a fourth sub woofer in this configuration it could give you a 4 ohm load, by adding the fourth sub in series with the single sub that is in parallel. or in other words, yu have two sets of 2 sub woofers each in series. That gives you two 8 ohm loads (two 4 ohm subs in series is 8 ohms). Then you take the two sets of subs and parallel them (two 8 ohm loads in parallel equals 4 ohms).

If i had a picture to show you it would make sense, two subs in series that are in parallel with two subs in series.

The blue wire to your amp (remote signal wire) needs to be connected to the red power lead for your deck. Right now it sounds like you are connected to constant power on your signal wire.

Hello roets81,

Check the voltage at the amp. It's possible that the voltage is either too high (above 16V) or too low (below 8.5V). Also make sure that the amp case is not grounded. If these check out OK, the most likely cause is that the amp itself is defective and requires service.

Hope this helps.

Ok i got a jbl gts 180 amp for my car. after i hooked it all up and turn my car on the power light stays on but it dosent push my subs. It will hit for 1 sec then stop with the light on. I have had it...


I repair car amps for a living and my prices are the chepest in the USA if an amp needs to be sent to me, plus shipping. I get a lot of amps to repair from this site. Sound like you might have to low of an ohms issue. If not I would have to have to look at it. I don't charge a bench fee and give a 90 warranty. I have the same amp in my collection. My prices also rarely exceed $60 to $80, something like yours would be around $40 or $50 plus shipping if you need to ship it to me. I have been doing this for 17 years and have'nt ha a complaint once. I also fix things in amps I see that might need fixing for free. People ask me why I do'nt charge more or fix things for free, is because I'm not hard up for money and I want to help my fellow car audio enthusiests. Let me know if you need my haelp. I will try to help you online first before we need to go further.

Subwoofer Wont Work


If the connections are correct...?
then it doesn't sound like theres a problem with the amp.

make sure the amp is not to powerful for the sub?
eg: 1000w amp, 500w sub.

Sounds stupid but it happens.

make sure the gain / volume is not too high!

if your BMW has a totally sealed, metal boot area this doesn't help.

The amps are probably going into protection mode. The wires are most likely not hooked up correctly. Make sure you have a good ground, good power source, and the remote wire is run correctly. Also make sure the speaker output wires aren't touching each other, and you have the correct ohm load for the amp. What kind of speakers/subs are hooked up and how are they wired?
