I don't see anywhere in the owners manual on how to properly wire (2) dvc 4 ohm subs to a hifonics bxi 608 brutus amp at 1 ohm. It has two positive and two negative speaker connectors on it . I want them going into the amp at 1 ohm total but there is instructions on how to do it. What would be the right way to hook them up ? PLEASE HELP ??!

Re: 2 4ohm dvc subs to a bxi 608 ( 600watt mono)
Take the positive on the sub and run a wire to the other positive the run a negative to the other negative then to your pos and neg on the box do the same on the other side then tie your two positives and two neg together and you got 1ohm and that amp willl handle it all day

Bridge at 4ohms your only getting 600watts rms. You will need to bridge at 1ohm (parallel) and adjust the gain accordingly. This will give it 1600 watts rms. If you would of had a dual 4ohm sub, then you could of bridged it at 2ohms mono, but you can't you have to go either 1 ohm or 4ohm. I believe it's not getting enough power.
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.
Halving the impedance will draw twice the current. You could technically get a 3 Db more power since the peak voltage will remain the same. BUT if the magnet structure is not intended to use that cone design, the magnet difference MAY not give you 2 ohms.
In fact, if the designed magnetic flux were smaller, you could wind up with a 1 ohm speaker.
trying to get that much power is really kind of silly as even 50 watts with efficient speakers will exceed safe levels of sound that will not cause damage to your ears.
As you push an amp up in power, usually distortion will increase as well.
each amp has + and - and will go to one of the voice coils , for the other voice coil use - to + FROM THE OTHER AMP , SET GAINS TO FULL COUNTERCLOCKWISE SO U NCAN LEVEL MATCH AMPS TO HEAD UNIT . REASON ONE VC IS WIRED "OUT OF PHASE IS SO THE CONES PUSH AND PULL WITH EACHOTHER
If you have a DVC 4ohm speaker, and you are using both voice coils, the amp is seeing a 2ohm load.
If you bridge the amp, you CAN run both subs as long as the amp is Two Ohms Stable.
Wire each subs voice coils in parallel.(Positive to positve, neg to neg.) (2ohms) each.
Then wire the two subs in series.(Neg from amp to neg of sub one, pos of sub one to neg of sub two. then pos of sub two to pos of amp.
If it sounds too hard, leave it as you are already running the amp at two ohms.
For 3 DVC 4 ohm subs wired to a 2 ohm stable amp, your best option would be to wire all of the sub voice coils in series (individual 8 ohm loads) and then parallel the three subs for a final load of 2.67 ohms. There's really no other configuration. Here's the wiring diagram:
wire the subs at 2 ohm each. red to red and black to black and then to the amp. if thay are a dual 4 ohm sub. dual 2 ohms will need to be wired red to black on one coil and the other conected to the amp.
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.
