Re: what power cap do i need for my car audio
I would go with a 4 FARAT capacitor then you know your amp won't be dimming your lights or clipping your amplifier signal.
I would actually buy the kinetic capacitor from www.onlinecarstereo.com they rated at being 100 1 farat capacitors. Great buy since it's on sale for $200 with added shipping.. Otherwise the 4 farat is needed.

First off, you won't be able to do this with a Pyle amp. Pyle amps are only 2 ohm stable (at best). When you do a 3 sub set up (assuming that they are all single 4 ohm voice coil), you will get either a 1.33 ohm load (way to low for that amp and will fry it quick), or you will get 12 ohms (hardly worth hooking up because of the lack of power).
Now say you have dual 4 ohm subs. You will still have the same problem going even lower than the 1.33 ohm or 6 ohms.
My recommendation is either do a 2 sub set up or get a better amp.
I know it's not what you want to hear, but it's true.
Depending on the PA FUBAR you have. The voice coil on those subs are DVC. Dual Voice Coil. You need to know a couple things. What kind of amp are you going to run on it. And what is the resistance (OHM) rating of each voice coil. MY two 12's are dual 4 ohm. Meaning that there are essentially 4 speakers to hook up. My amp currently is not 2 ohm stable in bridged. So what I did is run each speaker in parallel (red2red,black2black) then run to the box terminal. So now the dual 4 ohm voice coils are basically 2 ohm. I have 2 speakers. Now I hook the box up in series. To bring the now two 2 ohm speakers into one 4 ohm speaker. This is called series/parallel setup. My amp sees this box as 1 channel @ 4ohms. The downfall to this is the output of the amp is divided up into each speaker. So instead of sending all 1400 watts to one sub. I will send 700 to each sub. But here is a catch. even though each speaker is half the total wattage it will still be 3db louder. Meaning it will be as loud as 1 sub running 1400 watts. To conclude i need to know how many of those subs you are going to run on the amp.. And the model number of the amp so I can match up your wiring.
run them straight and dont use the cross over. One speak on right channel and the other on other channel. Then turn up amp settings 7/8 the way up and control the rest from your dvd/cd player. I recommend some monster cable which is very thick. Ground the amp directly to trunk bolts but make sure to scrape the paint off or the connection will be bad. You can also use a cap which will send battery pulses to amp much quicker.
The 2 sets of terminals are connected internally. Having 2 sets just makes it more convenient when wiring multiple subs. The amp is rated for 900 watts RMS into a 2 ohm load. The specs claim that it is stable at 1 ohm but does not give a power rating.
The Radial SD competition series from Phoenix Gold are rated to handle up to 600 watts RMS. If you have the model RSdC124 with dual 4 ohm voice coils, it would be best to wire the voice coils in parallel for a 2 ohm load and connect the sub to one set of terminals on the amp. If your sub is the model RSdC122 with dual 2 ohm voice coils, you should wire the voice coils is series for a 4 ohm load and connect the sug to one set of terminals on the amp. Wiring the voice coils in parallel will result in a 1 ohm load. And, while the amp may be stable at 1 ohm, the sub will be seriously overpowered.
if you have dual voice coils connect on each seporate sub negative left channel to possative right channel of the subwoofer same to other sub then conect the left possative and the right neggative to your box power terminal same to other sub then conect the two sub outs on your box left speaker positive to your positive left channel bridge then conect left speaker negative to the right speaker possative then connect your right speaker negative to your right channel negative brigdeg to your amp is single coil hook the box its self up the same way to your amp i have two dual voice cooil 12" hooked up to the same amp that way and it rocks without the power protecter turning on
That all depends upon whether or not the sub you are running has dual voice coils or just a single voice coil. The 800a4 is a four channel amp; thus the only way you can bridge it will be 3 channel or 2 channel. If you are running a dual voice coil sub then you can wire the amp two channel and get 400 watts x 2 @ 4 ohms. Make sure that you sub can handle this kind of power though.
Here are the specs:
4 x 100 @ 4 ohms (13.8V - <0.05% THD) 4 x 200 @ 2 ohms (13.8V - <0.10% THD) 2 x 400 @ 4 ohms bridged (13.8V - <0.10% THD) Fuse: External 60A Manufactured in 1999 - 2001
First of all how many ohm's are each subwoofer rated at . Are the subwoofers dual voice coil or single voice coil. Once I know that I can help you. I think the JL amp is not recommended below a 2ohm load.
