Your best bet is to bridge the speakers on one channel of the amp. Connect the +(red) connectors of the subs to the + connector on the amp, then the - (black) pole to the - on the amp. You now have two wires going to each connector on the amp. I am assuming the amp is connected to the radio and battery, and that the signal line is fitted, and the amp is earthed correctly.

I have 2 MA AudioMA100XE 600 watt woofers and a 1500watt monoblock amp hooked up to them now. they dont hit as hard as my old 800 watt ma audio amp that blew. why is that?


mono block anps are usually rated at lower impedance.
if your subs are dual 4 ohm , i'd wire all v/cs in parallel for a 1ohm load... unless the amp is all chromed up, than that rating is probably a WLS rating(when lightning strikes)... if the box says anaba group it typically does half of what it advertises.. :-(

The amplifier power ligh comes on but the sub woofers wont play what could be the problem. I hooked up a different amp and it worked just fine.


Even tho the power light is on doesnt exactly mean that the amp is sending signal to the speaker wires.... sense everything else is working make sure to check your fuses on the amp and also check to make sure that the amp is "receiving" an input from the RCAs

I have a power acoustik 0V4-1200 amp and 2-12" kicker cvr dual 2 ohms. My amp keeps getting really hot and turning off. I have two pair of rca jacks from my cd player to the amp. One speaker hooked up...


i have found the specs to your amp. 1. Amplifier connections: Lets make things simple. As we look at the amplifier speaker connections, we will number the outputs 1 2 3 4 from left to right for the top connections and again 5 6 7 8 from left to right for the bottom connections. 1 should be connected to a positive (RED) (+) on sub woofer A on voice coil (a) 4 should be connected to a negative (BLACK) (-) on sub woofer A on voice coil (b) Now using a small piece of cable, connect negative of voice coil (a) to positive of voice coil (b) Follow the same procedure for the other sub woofer using 5 and 8 as 1 and 4 This configuration should make the amp run at 4 OHM BRIDGED x 2. i hope this helps. dreamsystems

make sure if the amp work at 1 or 2 ohms you need to setup the same in the woofer.chek if the woofer is 2 or 4 ohms dual voice coil and how the amp work better

How do I hook up my 10 inch visonik sub woofers? they have 2 connections?


this is a dual voice coil sub. either have a 2 channel amp hook up to it. or have your mono amp have to sets of wires going out of it to your 2 connections. i dont suggest it but i have had one connection hooked up at a time played it when it blew hooked up the other connection as a back up. just make sure you have the right watt level for each voice coil.

I have 2 positives and 2 negatives on back of my alphasonik sub, do i connect amp to one side or both sides?


Hello gaz69,

Your PSW815 has 2 ohm dual voice coils allowing you to better match the impedance to your amp. Each voice coil is 2 ohms. If you wire them in parallel (both +'s together and both -'s together and then to the amp terminals), the sub presents a 1 ohm load which is too low for most amps. Wiring the voice coils in series (one + to the other - and the remaining + and - to the amp terminals) results in a 4 ohm load.

This link shows the wiring diagram for both options. If you know for sure that your amp is 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #1. If the amp is not 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #2.

Hope this helps.

If my woofers at bridged and my and is too but it


first you dont bridge both ,, 2nd you will need to find out what ohms your speakers are , and if dual coil what ohms each coil is ,, then find out what ohms your amp runs at , at full power.. then try to match your subs to the same ohm load,, REMEMBER there are diff ways onto how to hook subs on which will change the ohms.. good example 1 dual coil sub each coil is 2 ohms then you can hit a 1 ohm or 4,, depending how you hook them up .. When adding more subs and how you hook them up changes the whole game.. if your not sure on how to hook them up read a manual or go to a local shop you can burn your subs up or worst the amp if hooked up incorrectly ..
