I can make this relatively simple.
2 stages:
Stage (1) wiring the Sub inside the box;
Unscrew the SUB from the Box, (& undo the wires)
Connect both +Positive terminals on the SUB to the +Positive terminal on the inside of your BOX.
Connect both -Negative terminals on the SUB to the -Negative terminal on the inside of your Box,
Then screw the SUB back into the Box.
u Have just wired yr sub in parallel. any Amplifier will see it as 1woofer with 1OHMs resistance.

Stage (2) bridging your amp
(please check Amplifier instructions on which terminals to use)
generally you use "LEFT -Negative" and
"Right +Positive"
and connect to the corresponding terminals on the Sub Box.
Hope that helps someone.

This amp is stable down to 0.5ohm in stereo (2x400) and 1ohm in mono(1x800).

Yup! If you want a amplifier this is the only one to get.(except for the Manhattan 1-nuclear car amp. sells for 250,000 dollars.) that's a cool quarter of a million! I think i'll take the Orion hcca amp any old day. I think the 2.50 also doubles as a welder..lol. jk don't try to weld with it, seriously.

    If this amp is overheating with 4ohms on it...something is definitly wrong. this baby shouldn't get hot until it's seeing 2 ohms at least. and then it might get warm. And besides these suckers are built to get hot...thats why they have hear sinks...

Yes that amp is not made for bridging to 1 ohm it might do it but it will eventually burn out! i check your specs online!


thanks

How many svc subs at 4ohm does it take to get this amp to 1ohm stable and can you reccomend a good sub combo for this amp whether it be dvc or svc


It depends if your sub is 4ohm svc, or 2ohm svc. 4ohm would take 4 subs wired in parallel, 2ohm would take 2 subs wired in parallel. But for a amp that big, subs that'll handle it are definitely gonna be dvc. I'd recommend 2 Orion 4ohm dvc hcca's. They come in either 15in or 12in. the 15s are louder if you have the space for them. As far as wiring goes, wire the voice coils on the subs in parallel to 2ohm per sub, then wire the 2 subs in parallel to 1ohm. Goodluck and congrats on the equipment, Orion is about as good as you can go for subs and amps. just be ready to lay down some dynamat cuz this system'll bloww your vehicle apart! good luck...

I have 2 jl-w6 subs n a orion hcca 250 amp how do i run wirering


Hello brianmitchel,

From what I am able to determine, the Orion HCCA250 is a bridgeable 2-channel amp that is stable to 1ohm when bridged and outputs 800 watts RMS into that load.

The JL W6's in both 10" and 12" versions are dual voice coil with 4ohm coils so they can be wired to present either an 8ohm load (series) or a 2ohm load (parallel). They can handle 600 watts RMS.

With this combination, the best configuration would be to wire the sub voice coils in parallel for a 2ohm load and then parallel both subs to the amp bridged terminals for a final impedance of 1ohm. The subs will each be getting 400 watts.

In any event, I would not recommend running subs in series. There is some evidence for distortion being caused by something termed "back EMF".

Hope this helps.

Generally to bridge an amplifier you need to insert the positive wire from the sub to the positive wire on the first channel. And then insert the negative wire from the sub to the second channels's negative terminal.
