Usually an 800 watt peak sub would be a 400 watt rms. Hmmmm. Anyway, just bridge the amp (1x 380) nd keep the gain up enough to stay clean. Watch the sub and turn up gain until it starts to distort, then back it down a hair. Do this with the CD players volume up 2/3 to 3/4 volume with the BASS and treble at zero (bass better at minus 4 or so if you are a bass head! Hope thishelps.

I have 2 pioneer 6x9 400w, pioneer GM 6500f 760w amp and a kenwood KFC W1012 sub, how d i get the best sound from these?


pioneer gm 6500 is a 4 ch amp rated at 60w-4 way to small of an amp to run your sub. UNDER-POWERING your sub is more likely to damage spkr than over-powering. my advice,get mono-block to run sub

Are subfoofer ts-w308d2 and amplifier GM-5300T compatible with each other?


Yes. You will be able to run this setup with the sub bridged across both channels of the amp, which will give you more power (which the sub will be able to handle: 380 watts rms), or with the sub wired to a single channel, which will give you less power (125 watts rms). The sub can handle 400 watts rms.

Can i hook up my sub if it's wired to a 2 ohm and my amp is 4 ohm


Hi martineztag
You should never connect a load of an impedance less than the min the amp is able to drive. This can have disastrous consequences that may easily result in failure of the amps output stages. You need to use a different configuration that does not overload the amp in this manner for safe operation.

03 impala there is a factory installed amp all speakers. i am trying to find out if i can power another amp 760w pioneer form the amp that is already there? i have already put outputs for my RCA wires. can...


You might not want to do that. The 760W Pioneer amp might require larger wire due to the power consumption of the amp. Most amplifiers require a direct wire from the battery to the amp. The power wire for the factory amp might not require very large wire and if you tie into the power for that amp the fuse could blow and wiring in your car could melt or catch fire, The best installation is to run the recommended guage wire from the battery directly to the amp with a properly rated in-line fuse.

What kind amp should be use for ts-w307d2 subwoofer speaker?


Nice sub, i have 2 308d4s in my car. Okay this sub is a dual coil 2 ohm. so to get best bang for your buck you'll want a 2 channel amp and bridge it. Your sub is 400 watts RMS, So you'll want an amp that has the same rating. I'd recommend the pioneer GM-5400t. Then wire your voice coils in parallel, and bridge your amp, you'll get 380 watts RMS, which is perfect for this sub. If you have questions on wiring or anything you can just ask. thanks, i hope this helps

I have a Pioneer GM-5300T amp wired to a 10 inch kicker sub. The music plays throughout the speakers of my car but the sub goes in and out. I noticed that the amp's power light dims when the sub goes in...


Hello pburgfootbal,

You do not specify which Kicker sub you have or how it is wired to the amp. The GM-5300T is only stable to 4ohms in bridged mode and if your sub is a 4ohm DVC with the coils in parallel, it presents a 2ohm load. If the sub is 2ohm DVC with the coils in parallel, the load is only 1ohm. Either configuration would be too low of an impedance for the amp in bridged mode. I'd check the sub specifications and make sure that the wiring configuration properly matches it to the amp.

Hope this helps.

Car subwoofer problems


The cable should not cause the problem unless it is shorting out somewhere on the remote or positive cable. I would use a larger gauge wire first as this is the cheaper way to go, and if the same problem occurs you are having a short in the sub or box causing the protection mode. You will have to back trace to find possible cross connections.

Amp dosnt work right


your amp cant handle the impedance of your subs i.e your running a 2ohm sub on a 4ohm amp!

Change the wiring on the sub so instead of running at 2ohm your run at 4

if you need to know how to wire up your sub to run at 4 then take a look at this wiring diagram

take a look at option 2

How do i hook it up


On the Sub you have 4 connectors, 2 for each voice coil... Run a jumper wire from One side of the sub to the other. Positive to negative so that now you have one set of connectors free. Doing this will make the sub able to handle more cause you're using both voice coils. Thats how i've always hooked mine up when i have duel voice coil and they always last a long time. If you're gonna bridge the amp, make sure its turned down for about 5 or 6 hours to let the sub break in.

What are the correct spaekers for the gm 5100t ?


    CEA-2006 Compliant Amplifier Power Standard:
  • 125 Watts x 2 @ 4 ohms <= 1% THD+N
  • 380 Watts x 1 @ 4 ohms BRIDGE <=1% THD+N
  • 75 dBA Signal-to-Noise Ratio
  • Peak Music Power: 250W x 2 (4 ohm) / 760W x 1 (Bridge)
  • 2 Channels
  • Continuous Power @ 4 Ohm: 125W x 2
  • Continuous Power @ 2 Ohm: 190W x 2
  • Continuous Power Bridged @ 4 Ohm: 380W x 1
  • Frequency Response: 10Hz-50kHz
  • THD (1kHz, 4 Ohm): <0.015%
  • Signal to Noise Ratio: >95dB
  • Dimensions: 11 13/16” x 2 3/8” x 12 7/8”
  • PWM Regulated MOSFET Power Supply
  • Balanced Isolator Input Circuit
  • Oversized Screw-Type Power/Ground Terminals
  • 2 Channel RCA Inputs
  • Speaker Level Input
  • Screw-Type Speaker Terminals
  • Hi-Volt Input Level Control (200mV-6.5V)
  • Bass Boost (50Hz, 0/6/12dB)
  • Selectable LPF (80Hz, -12dB/Oct.)
  • Pioneer 1-Year Warranty
I'm assuming the subwoofers were bridged and couldn't handle the power. Make sure you have atleast 300 watts peak power wattage.
