JUST NEED WIRING DIAGRAM FOR PH5000D BOSS FOR TWO SUB


When two sub woofers are wired the most important thing that must be remembered is to keep the polarity and PHASING to be in line within the space.
The sub can be connected in Series or in Parallel ( if the amplifier takes in very low impedance).
The connections can be bridged from the output.
Finally your taste to listen must determine the final settings and response

I have this hooked up and works fine with the key on, but when i start the car, sub light, amp and sub dont come on.


You have connected it to the wrong power wire - one that is only active in service mode - first key position.
You should draw a wire directly from the battery (don't forget to add a 40 amps fuse on the wire) to the amps. If you don't want them constantly operational (you will have to manually shut them down) install a relay on the wire with the command coming from a wire from the instrument key position - second position of the key. Use a voltmeter to identify the wires.

I have a pioneer 760watt model gm5100t amp and two audiobahn 12" subs and I would like to know how the wiring is configured from the amp to the subs as well as how the subs are wired since they are dual...


you bridge the inside + - and use the outside + -

then connect the outside + to the amp then connect the - to the + on the other sub then the - on the other sub to the amp just read this and do it slowly and you will get it then you only have to run the subs on a two channel amp

rate pls

How to connect HIFONICS BXI 2607 D watt at 1 ohm....


That's dependent on your subwoofers. You will need 2 dual 4 ohm subs wired in Parallel, a single dual 2 ohm subwoofer wired in parallel, a single dual .5 ohm wired in series. Or something similar.

Powers up but no speaker output


Hello montez1599,

That's a great amp.

You do not say what subs you are connecting or what wiring configuration you are using. But there should be no problem if the amp is powering up normally. I'd check the gain and crossover settings to make sure they match the subs.

Having 2 +'s and 2 -'s is just a convenience for connecting more than one sub to the amp. If you have just one sub, connect to either of the positives and either of the negatives (they're connected internally). If you have 2 subs, you can run separate wires to each sub or you can wire the subs together and then run just one positive and negative to the amp.

Hope this helps.

ur speakers are probably connected wrong so diconected and and connected differently. and if ur speakers a dual coil see if they connected it if not do this. only if ur speaker is double coil meanin if ur speaker has 4 connections for speaker wire. and if it does than connect possitve to negative from one coil to another and negative to positive from the other one than from one of the coils connect the wires going to ur amp positiv to positiv and negative to negative bringind the sub to 2ohm constant
try that see if it works. only if u have a double coil subs

I have a PHOENIX GOLD RYVAL V1502 amplifier and trying to hook it up at 2 ohms as it describes it can be 450watts x2 at 2 ohms running wires from bridged positive and negative to the first sub then two...


Hello mgonzalez390,

It sounds like the amp/subs impedance is not matched. According to the published specifications for the V1502 amp, it is only stable in bridged mode down to 4ohms, not 2ohms. You need to get the final impedance that the amp sees up to at least 4ohms or it will continue to shut down and eventually fail completely.

If your subs are dual voice coil and can be rewired so that each sub has an impedance of 8ohms, then you can safely parallel them to the amp like you have described. If they are single 4ohm voice coils, then you have 2 choices. Connect one sub to each channel or if you want to bridge the channels, then wire the subs in series, not in parallel. Wire the positive bridged terminal from the amp to the first sub positive, connect a jumper from the negative of that sub to positive on the other sub, and then the negative from that sub back to the negative bridged terminal on the amp. This wiring results in an 8ohm load to the amp and it should work OK without shutting down. But the power to each sub will actually be less than if you wire them separately to each channel.

Hope this helps.

How do i bridge 3 subs to a 4 channel 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

Connecting a subwoofer to a mono amp that has 2 sets of terminals


ok this gets confusing sometimes. Ok first look to see what ohm your subs are. If you have a dual 4 ohm sub When you run that on sub + to + and - to - then that will make that sub 2 ohm. its different on ohm if the sub is say a 8 ohm then putting the wires that way will bring that sub to 4 ohm. Now lets say you have 2 subs that are dual 4 ohm and wire both of them + to + and - to - and go bridge the amp which would be both wires from sub both + together and both - wired bridge on the amp will make it a 1 ohm to the amp. Please post what ohm your subs are and i can tell you alittle more about it

3 amps 2 subs sound system for car, need wiring help


As i read your problem i can recommend you that connecting each of the hifonics amp to each hifonics sub with the same specs by getting the specs in interfacing the two or you can simply look to the output of the amp and the input of the sub and find a suitable plug that fits to them.

In the case if you want to run each hamp to individually run each sub but sharing 3 farad capacitor: what i can suggest is that you connect in parallel one connecting wire of each input or ouput of the amp or sub. Its like connecting a connector from each of the input or output of the amp or sub to one leg of the capacitor, and connecting two wires to the other leg, one is being connected to the amp or sub and the other wire is connected to the other amp or sub.

In the case of putting a circuit breaker at the car battery: what i can suggest is that you find an appropriate circuit breaker that fits the specs of the car battery then connect it in series on the positive supply or read the specs of the circuit breaker before you connect it to the battery. Having a circuit breaker is like having a fuse but with special advantages in favor of the circuit breaker.

In the case of having power to the amps you can run one power wire to the amps by dividing the power wire into two, one connected to the amp and the other wire to the other amp. Then you can connect each amp and sub in series individually by connecting one wire b/w amp and sub. I hope i solved your problem
