Run one red wire to red on one voice coil then black on opposing voice coil should leave you with one red and one black on opposing voice coils run a wire between the two that will give you 2 ohms impedance then from red on other voice coil to positive on box and from black to negative on box and from input on box run to amp same way + for + and - for -.

Ok I have 2 12" cerwin Vega dual voice coil woofers if they are 4 ohm dual coil each,,,each one is wired to 2 ohms,,,should I connect each woofer together to make them 1 ohm and put them on a mono amp or...


First you cannot run 2 dvc 4 ohms at 2 ohms its either 1 ohm or 4 ohm. and yes you should bridge them better performance and power. i have looked it up for you and this is your 2 options at running your subs.

What's the best way to hook up my jl audio 13" w 7 sub to my jl audio 1000/1 amp


the best way? hmm. i would start off with some wire. Keep in mind that you will need to separate the positive (usually red or has a stripe or marking on it) from the negative (Black usually is the common color for this wire) and hook the up according to your amps positive and negative hook ups / terminals following your sub-woofers terminals. then depending on your sub woofers Voice coils (Duel or single voice coils) yours are duel or quad coils but i\'m sure they are duel (2 of each positive and negative equaling a total of 4 posts on each sub-woofer). figure out your amps ohm load handling and does your amp run hot (1,2 or 4 ohm stable some are even less like 0.5 or lower) i would run at a 1 or 2 ohm load as that is usually standard on 1 channel amps. make sure to check your wiring and if your not sure about ohm loads just Google wiring for sub-woofer ohm loads such as 0.5 ohm, 1 ohm, 2 ohm or 4 ohm loads. also make sure your box is not sealed do to the fact they are siht and cant produce sound like a vented / ported enclosure keep the size as big as you can fit in your car or truck the bigger the better. i had one 8\'\' sony sub pounding like a 15\'\' sub real loud . Also MDF particle board is garbage it causes port noise and absorbs water

How to hook up Panasonic SB PM19 speakers to SA-PM23 reciever


yes you can. these are called "bi wired" speakers which means there's a hook up for the woofer and the tweeter individually. If your amp have just 2 speaker hookups it's no problem to hook the woofer/tweeter wires of each speaker together. If your amp had 4 speaker hookups, you could put the tweeters in 1 and the woofers in the other but it will still work fine with 2 speaker hookups.

How should i hook up a visonik class D vxd709 to my dual voice coil 12" Treo subwoofer?


if your amp is a monoblock 2 ohm stable amp wire the coils positive to positive and negative to negative into a single channel that will create a 2 ohm load turn your amp down and adjust by ear till it sounds good if your amp is a 2 channel amp 4 ohm per channel wire each coil one per channel turn amp down and adjust by ear till sounds good hope i was helpful

I have 2 12 inch kickers cvr and i have the rockfordfosgate g15002 hooked up and briged and it keeps cutting off


This is usually due to wiring the subwoofers to the wrong Ohm load. Normally those amps are rated at a 4 Ohm load. It sounds to me like they are wired down to a 2 Ohm load and bridged. It's a protection situation for the amp. If you have a multimeter, disconnect the woofers from the amp. Next, hook the meter up to the subwoofers where the wire or wires are coming out of the box. If you can give more information on the woofers, I can give you a better idea on what the numbers that you should see. It depends on if they are dual 2 or 4 Ohm woofers.

I hooked up my xd1225 cd player in my car and it gets SUPER hot/overheats. What did I do wrong?


your speakers are of an incorrect ohmage, or you have too many speakers hooked up to it. your stereo likely calls fo a singler 4 ohm (4?) speaker per channel and the factory speakers may be lower than 4 ohms, or you have several speakers hooked up to the same channel. there should be 4 channels, each with no less than a 4 ohm (4? ) load. two 4 ohm speakers wired to the same channel in parallel (both attached to the amp's poositive/negative leads) will create a 2 ohm (2?) load, and overheat the amp. if the 2 speakers are a woofer/tweeter combination, and there is a capacitor involved, it may be ok, but 2 woofers, or a woofer and a subwoofer hooked to the same channel will likely reduce the ohmage below 4 ohms (4?). look at the back of each woofer speaker, and look for an ohmage rating stamped to the back of the speaker magnet to verify that they are 4 ohm (4?) speakers, and verify that only a single 4 ohm speaker is hooked to each channel. the car likely has multiple speakers hooled up to each channel, which would lower the ohmage rating below 4 ohms (4?).

Just got two AR 312 HO speakers from my brother. I have a Yamaha HTR 6250. The speakers have (2) sets of cable hook up. One I assume is for built in sub woofers? Do I hook one normal and one to the sub...


do not use those speakers with that amp, those are 4 ohm speakers, which could damage your 8 ohm yamaha amp. you will have to get a 4 ohm capable amp to run the highs, and another 4 ohm amp to run the subs.

car amplifiers are currently 4 ohm, or even 2/1 ohm stable, but few, if any modern receivers can run at anything lower than 8 ohms without a danger of overheating. you may have to get a vintage amp(s), like a 1970's marantz receiver, or a 1980's to early 1990's kenwood power amp, because 4 ohm home amps are pretty scarce nowadays.

whatever amp(s)( you get, verify that they are DEFINITELY 4 ohm stable.

Hooking up the speakers


Well, this means you have dual voice coil subs. These subs are for running one sub in stereo mode( meaning you can hook up a right and a left channel to one speaker). In your case you are using 2 subs, which all you have to do is run a jumper wire from one side of the sub to the other. Take your (+) and hook it up on the (+)on one side of the sub and take your (-) and hook it up on the (-) on the other side and run a wire from the remaining post to the other. And do the same thing on the other sub.

If my woofers at bridged and my and is too but it


first you dont bridge both ,, 2nd you will need to find out what ohms your speakers are , and if dual coil what ohms each coil is ,, then find out what ohms your amp runs at , at full power.. then try to match your subs to the same ohm load,, REMEMBER there are diff ways onto how to hook subs on which will change the ohms.. good example 1 dual coil sub each coil is 2 ohms then you can hit a 1 ohm or 4,, depending how you hook them up .. When adding more subs and how you hook them up changes the whole game.. if your not sure on how to hook them up read a manual or go to a local shop you can burn your subs up or worst the amp if hooked up incorrectly ..

Ohm calculations; 4 and 8 ohm sub woofer?


+ output from amp to + input of 4 ohm to + input of 8 ohm AND - output from amp to - input of 4 ohm to - input of 8 ohm is a parallel circuit = 2.66 ohm impedance load for amp
+ output from amp to + on 4 ohm - on 4 ohm to + on 8 ohm - on 8 ohm to - of power amp is a series circuit = 12 ohm impedance load for amp. Clear as mud??
