Yes the amplifier will become very warm or "hot". It is a good idea to place it in an area that will recieve plenty of ventilation and air flow. Some companies sell cooling fans for larger amps.

SOURCE: can a 1000 watt amp run 800 rms subs and best wiring option

yeah it will run them but you won't get your full power because the rms for your subs is high. try bridging them with some 8 gauge wire, and of you got a crossover it will help you out alot

SOURCE: will a sony xm-1652z 1000w amp run 2 dvc 4 ohm 800

IT WILL POWER THE SUBS WITH NO PROBLEM. I WILL NEED TO KNOW WHAT THAT MAX WATT THE SPEAKERS CAN HANDLE BEFORE GIVING PROPER ADVISE. RMS IS RECOMMENDED MINIMUM SETTINGS.

You should definately bridge them. Firstly, lay the 2 speakers face down next to each other. Note the connections +- +-. The first + will go to the amplifier. The next terminal(-) will be connected to the next speaker(+). Take the last(-) and connect to amplifier. Please note that your amplifier has a bridge section which is normally the first + and the last- on the two channels. Connect your woofers on the bridge.

Look for a 4-channel amp that pushes 50 watts RMS @ 4 ohm.
Make sure the amp is CEA-2006 compliant.
Ignore peak or max watts as these are arbitrary numbers.

Can i use a 300 watt amp for 2, 800 watt woofers


yes, but you would not get the same performance as you would if you gave them the suggested power. I have found that it is always better to use a more powerful amp than your subs are rated for (as long as it is clean, high quality, low distortion power). I have had the best luck with name brand amps (kicker,rockford fosgate,phoenix gold,etc...). I hope this will be helpful to you.

Just wanted to know what the square boxes on top of my kole audio hk-980-2 amp was.


On the hk 980-2 those boxes are just for looks. I own one of these amps and im runnin 3x30amp fuses in it and it seems to put out 870-900 watts bridged at 14.5volts all day. I have an extra battery and i put 0-4 gauge reducers in mine. I have 2 memphis pr 12s and they sound really good on it.

I have a memphis amp that puts out 250 watts @ 4ohms and 500 watts @ 2 ohms. I want to hook up 3 sony 12'' explods @ 4 ohms a piece. How do I wire them to the amp to get the maximum output of 500 watts?...


well to be honest your amp probly cant handel 3 speakers because of the impedance levels so just hook up 2 bridges out to + to - on one Speaker then from that same speaker run + and - to the next one

A= amp
S= speakers

Sub wiring


IF THE RMS IS 800 THEN THAT IS THE MINIMUM YOU SHOULD RUN TO THEM. IF THE MAX IS OVER 1000 WATT, YOU SHOULD BRIDGE ONE SPEAKER TO EACH CHANNEL. YOU WILL PUSH THE MOST POWER TO THEM THAT WAY. MORE POWER = MORE BASS

What is best amp to run 2 12 inch cvr's


12In Kicker CVRs
are Dual Voice Coil, and You can run each voice coil around 200 Watts RMS

So each sub will have a 400 Watt RMS and 800 Watts peak.

Now since you have 2, Your total will be 800 Watts RMS and 1600 Watts Peak.

I would get really any amp that sits at around 800-1000 Watts RMS.

These are kicker but they are low end so i wouldnt push them to the extreme.

1000-1200 Watts RMS Max and but keep the Gain down on the amp. They will hit no doubt but i wouldnt push these subs or you will be disapointed in the long run.

I would get a Fosgate or MTX amp.

You can get any amp really but find something right around 1000 Watts RMS and it will push those well.

You can go mono block or a 2 channel, just depends on how you want to wire them.

Be careful though. If your running them bridged right now with your mono block, do not run them parallel bridged on a 1000w RMS Amp, you will blow them so fast lol

(RMS = Root Mean Square. Or in other words is the continuous wattage being sent from the amplifier to the subwoffers)

Hey thanks alot for the help, the way its hooked up now the amp eventually gets way to hot and the shut-off saftey heat switch just comes on. wondering if you had any suggestions for a good amp along with...


I would definately say, in the world of amplifiers you usually get what you pay for. I would recommend getting a Memphis or MTX amplifier. Go to ebay, specifically search for memphis then in the search options make sure to put in mono or 1 channel. All memphis mono block amps are 2 ohms stable. In particularly I would recommend for you the PR series. it is the Power reference series and they are really boomy for the money. Anything that has the "ST" is getting a little old so I wouldn't recommend it but It still is a good amp, just not sure how long it would last and how badly it's been beaten in the past. Good luck. If you find an amp and are unsure let me know which one and I can help verify it for you.

Amp getting really hot


well it is getting hot due to the amp drawing and pushing alot of current. try getting lower gage wiring for power to the amp and lower gage speaker wire.
