You will have to wire subs together for a 4 ohm load. Then bridge amp (1 channel). Look on amp speaker outs to see what leads to use to bridge. Run positive and negative to one speaker then use a jumper wire from that positive and negative to the next speakers positive and negative
Your amp is a four channel so you have 4 sets of speaker outputs. to bridge this amp to 2 channels is pretty simple, all your have to do is when connecting your speakers instead of using both +, and - from the same channel, use the + from the one channel, and the - from the adjacent channel. Do this for both speakers, if you'll notice you now have 2 empty - terminals and 2 empty + terminals, if so you did it right... Hope this helps, enjoy your amp.
My information shows the XM-1652Z as being a 2-channel amp. It will not be stable below 4-ohms in bridged mode. For best power, your subs will need to be 2-ohms with all 3 wired in series. This will present a 6-ohm load to the amp. After wiring the subs in series, connect the positive speaker wire to one channel (+) and the negative speaker wire to the other channel (-). For the 1652Z no other wiring is necessary. For subs you will also want to set the LPF (80Hz) switch to the "ON" position (to the right).
Keep in mind that the rated output is only 400 watts RMS at 4-ohms in bridged mode. That's kinda wimpy for 3 subs. You would probably obtain better results from two 2-ohm subs, each connected to a separate channel. That way each sub would be getting 200 watts RMS, still low but there's lots of good subs that will sound pretty loud with 150-200 watts
This should work if channel 3 & 4 are bridged at 4 ohm.
channel 1 should be stable at 2ohm
channel 2 should be stable at 2 ohm
You can hook up the right side speakers together ( + with + and - with - ) . same thing with the left side. this will give you 2 ohm each channel. this will cause your amp to run hot (this might be tuff on the amp). It will give you right (2 speakers) and left ( 2 speakers ), no front and rear adjustement if you need to balance your sound. I think you should be better buying another amp for your sub and take your 4 channels for your 4 car speakers. this amp as a rca output that can feed the other amp ( sub amp ). it is possible to do it.
If the speaker is a 4 ohm DVC (two 4 ohm coils), you can't wire it to get a single 4 ohm load. Try connecting one coil to each of the two rear channels. It may not be as loud but the amp should operate without going into protection.
If the two 4 ohm coils are in parallel, the amp is driving a 2 ohm mono load. That's probably why it's shutting down.
I do not reccommend that you push the Pioneer speakers over 100 watts. The jenson will already drown the car with bass through your pioneers so much you will want to turn off the bass boost when playing some low bass hip hop songs. It changes from one venue of song to another, so I just keep the jenson bass boost off and use my head unit to adjsut the sound to fit my listening prefences. I am telling you man, you will be blown away . Hook up the pioneers straight to the Channels,. do not bridge. I put Subs in my truck though. I used the Pass output to send the audio to me Jenson 2 Channel 600W amp. I drive one 10 inch enclosed JBL Class A/B Sub. I bridged the output of the 600 W amp to the 10 inch sub in my Z28. The pioneers never get drowned out. I did smoke my 2 channel Amp one time. and also took out a MTD 10inch sub. I am talk shooting flames and smoked the whole car up. I think if you bride the XA4150 to the pioneers, you will have the flaming smoke problem in no time.
