SOURCE: how to wire 2 dvc subs to a orion 2150sx ? dont

what impedence are the voicecoils?
Dual 4 - Dual 2 - Dual 1 ??

Orion SX / GS / HCCA amp Wiring guide:

Orange = Right Positive
Black/ Orange = Right Negative
Yellow = Left Positive
Black/ Yellow = Left Negative
Blue = 1+1

Bridging of SX or HCCA Amps:
1. Use the Orange wire for Positive.
2 Use the Black/ Yellow wire for Negative
3. Push "in" the Mono Button
That amplifier is only 4ohm mono stable - so assuming the subs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils...

First wire both in Parallel Independently So each subwoofer is now a 2 ohm load. (combine + and + - and- on both subwoofers)

Now Take a positive on one voicecoil of sub #1 and attach to amplifier+(orange)

Take a - on that same subwoofer and attach it to a + on the OTHER subwoofer.

Finally, take a - from the second woofer to the amplifier -(black/yellow)

Now you have a 4 ohm load on your bridged channels.

SOURCE: i want to make this sub a 1 ohm. how do i do that?

to run this at 1 ohm, connect one terminal to your amplifier and then run a line from that terminal to the other terminal, in parralel, which means positive to positive and negative to negative in all cases. a wire starts at one terminal, goes into the next terminal and continues to the amp.

To run at 2 ohm just connect one terminal to the amp, no need to make a connection between the two terminals, just choose one!

to run at 4 ohms, u have to wire the sub in series, which means you connect the negative of the amp to the negative of one terminal, and the positive of the amp to the positive of the OTHER terminal, and a wire should connect the negative and positive from each terminal.

This is assuming that your subwoofer has two 2ohm terminals.
be careful what you amplifier is stable at. running 1 ohm on a 4 or 2 ohm stable amp can and eventually will over heat and destroy it.

SOURCE: need to wire two dvc 15 in kicer l7 to 1 ohm

Hello goldy6569,

To wire the L72's at 1ohm, simply connect both +'s and -"s on each sub together. Then connect to your amp terminals.

With 2ohm DVC's, you can have either a 1ohm load or a 4ohm load. The diagrams are here (I know it's the website of a Kicker competitor, but their "wiring wizard" is simply the best).

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Want to bridge 2 channel amp to push single 4 ohm dvc sub

Hello k_rabbit89,

A 4 ohm DVC sub can be wired in series like you described for an 8 ohm load or the voice coils can be wired in parallel for a 2 ohm load.

If your 2-channel amp isn't stable down to 2 ohms when the channels are bridged (most 2-channel amps are only stable to 4 ohms when bridged), you do not want the voice coils paralleled. The amp will overheat, go into protection mode, and eventually fail completely. A sub with 2 ohm voice coils would be a better fit. That way, you could series the coils for a 4 ohm load and the amp would operate OK with the channels bridged into that load.

But anyway, for the best power from THAT amp to THAT sub, your best wiring solution would be to wire each voice coil to a separate channel. The problem with that is that the signal to each coil needs to be EXACTLY the same or you will have one coil trying to move the cone out while the other one tries to move it in. You can closely approximate identical signals on the output side by using the same input to both channels. Do this by using only one RCA connection (either right or left channel) from your head unit and split it with a "Y" cable.

Hope this helps.

I have an old school autotec xs 1500.1 and need to know how to hook up the outs to make it 1 ohm


Since it is a mono block amp, it depends on your subwoofer (s), and how you wire them to the amp.

Single 4 ohm sub would be just that, 4 ohms.
Single dvc 4 ohm sub, with both voice coils wired parallel would be 2 ohms.

2 dvc 4 ohm subs wired parallel would be a 1 ohm load.

I honestly would go with 2 12 inch dual 2 ohm subs and wire them one per amp. That will give you a 1 ohm load to each amp and will give the HCCA's 2500 rms per sub... It will be stupid loud... 10s hit tighter than 12's usually and 12's tighter than 15's but u will get more air movement out of a 15 than the 12's and 10s... but... 2 10's require say a 4 cubic foot box to perform well... 2 12's require a 5 cubic foot box to perform well and 2 15's require about 7 to 10 cubic foot to perform to their fullest... no matter what if you put a sub in a box that's too small it will not perform or sound like what you want it to... go 2 12's and like a 5.50 cubic foot box or a 6 cubic foot box and you will love it...

How many svc subs at 4ohm does it take to get this amp to 1ohm stable and can you reccomend a good sub combo for this amp whether it be dvc or svc


It depends if your sub is 4ohm svc, or 2ohm svc. 4ohm would take 4 subs wired in parallel, 2ohm would take 2 subs wired in parallel. But for a amp that big, subs that'll handle it are definitely gonna be dvc. I'd recommend 2 Orion 4ohm dvc hcca's. They come in either 15in or 12in. the 15s are louder if you have the space for them. As far as wiring goes, wire the voice coils on the subs in parallel to 2ohm per sub, then wire the 2 subs in parallel to 1ohm. Goodluck and congrats on the equipment, Orion is about as good as you can go for subs and amps. just be ready to lay down some dynamat cuz this system'll bloww your vehicle apart! good luck...

Bridge two 12inch subs together


it depends. what is the ohm rating of each sub, and the amp. are the subs DVC(dual voice coil)? and are you trying to bridge them directly to the amp? i need more info, but i can say that if they are 4ohm subs, if you run them parallel, they will become 2 ohm. to keep them at 4 ohms, they need to be run i n series, and you need more than 2 for that.

*amp to sub wiring help...


The 2500D has 2 "+" and 2 "-" power connections to help split the current between two smaller wires vs. one giant, hard to route wire. According the manual, for optimal performance, both "+" and "-" power connections should be utilized. They also recommend using 4AWG wire for these connections.

The 2 "+" and "-" speakers connections are only there to simplify the wiring of multiple speakers into the amp. Both "+" get tied together inside the amp, as do both "-" connections. In this case, with the dual 2 ohm voice coils on your 12" sub, you would wire one voice coil to one +/- set on the amp and the other voice coil to the other +/- set.
