You can buy splitters from radio shack or many other electronic/sound shops which split a male or female phono jack to separate stereo or mono output jacks. The most common is a phono jack to two separate mono 1/8" plugs. One way would be to purchase one of these, cut the ends off the outputs and strip the insulation, then use those to wire your amp. "Monster" brand puts out some of these splitters as well which use heavier gauge wire which would probably be most suitable for the task.

I have a boss rt645 2ch 1400 watt amp would this amp properly push a pair of 12 inch mtx terminators.


That all depends on the wattage of the subs. also the independance of the subs. If your amp is 1400 watt, maximum you want is 2 600watt subs. if your subs are higher you will blow your amp eventually as your amp isnt powerful enough to pump out to that level.You should never have your amp fully turned up to max, 80% is perfect and will not make your amp blow. Hense why you want your subs less than the max output of your amp.

Just bought 2 12 in d3 dual 2 ohm subs with d5 600.4 amp. Need to know how to wire subs. They were in a box already I assumed they were wire at 2 o When i hooked One up to my amp it hit really for Jus...


what wattage are the subs and amp? if your subs are more wattage than your amp, your amp will blow fuses as cant handle the output to your subs. for example. you have 2 500 watt subs and a 300 watt amp, that is no good as amp isnt powerful enough. if you have 2 500 watt subs you need at least a 1200 watt amp to power them both. 200 watt more than the combined wattage of subs as amps should never be turned up to max as they tend to blow and overheat more quickly. 80% volume on amps is reccomended by installers and manufactures.

Amp doesn't come on


Hello rheabarb,

You did not say whether or not you checked the wiring going to your subs. Many times, a shorted or grounded speaker wire will cause an amp to fail. And if the amp powers up OK with the subs disconnected, I'd suspect one or more of the wires.

Hope this helps.

Memphis PR300.2 Amp protect light on


If it is not turning on your problem is it is not getting power. Check your fuses. The reason an amp goes into protect mode is usually because the subs are not wired up right. Make sure your fuses are good, you have a good ground, and make sure your amp turn on wire didn't come loose when you were putting the deck back in. As for the amp going into protect you probably wired the subs down to too few ohms and the amp you have can't handle it. Try hooking the subs up straight w/o bridgeing them and turn it up to see if it works. If you don't have problems with it then you wired your subs wrong.

Kole amp in protect mode?


Are you setting the bridge switch for both left and right or are you trying to run both subs off of one set of terminals? If you running the subs off one set of terminals you are effectively running the amp below 2ohms and thus the amp is not 2ohm stable and you will destroy it.

Some amps actually all ready run a bridged output for left/right operation, this could also be the reason why the protection circuit is kicking on.

Either way it's a component mismatch and you either need a stronger amp or different subwoofer setup.

Subs


I looked up that amp, it doesn't have a listing for 2ohms x1 but it has 2 ohms x 2 and its at 250watts. For this situation, I would recommend a different amp or different subs. Right now you are getting the most you can get out of your sub/amp combo, if you only have single voice coil subs. Which is common in the mtx preloaded boxes. Either you want an mono block amp stable at 2 ohms or 2 dual 4 ohm voice coil subs. If you got the subs you would wire the voice coils in series so you could get 8 ohms then the subs in parallel so you could get 4 ohms, which would be the best for that particular amp. Good luck.
