If the amp is not kicking what it should it probably s a wattage problem. Check to see if the alternator has high enough voltage distribution. That is also why it keep shuting down.

Zx-8100 amplifier is red lighting.


try wiring them differently. here is a link for u to go to http://www.crutchfield.com/learn/learningcenter/car/subwoofers_wiring.html . once there find your amp configuration (ie. mono, or 2 channel) then down to the type of subs an how many subs ( ie. 2 dvc (dual voice coil) 4 ohm subs) an that will show u how the subs should be wired and wired to the amp.

Overheating amp problem...easially fixed, i think....


depends on the sub rating.

if subs are 2 ohm rated you can ONLY get 1 or 4 ohms..
2x2=4ohm series
2/2=1ohm parallel

if subs are 4 ohm rated wire in parallel
4/2=2ohm

look it up google for diagram if you need one.

HOW TO WIRE ONE DVC SUBWOOFER TO A PHOENIX GOLD TRANTRUM 1200.1


Hello matt225281.

Since the Tantrum only lists specifications into a 4ohm load, you need to make sure that the final impedance of your DVC sub is 4ohms or greater. So a sub with either 2ohm or 4ohm voice coils needs to have the coils wired in series with a jumper between the positive of one coil to the negative of the other and the remaining positive and negative to the amp speaker terminals. Paralleling the voice coils will result in a 1ohm or 2ohm load to the amp and it will overheat, go into protection or possibly fail completely.

If your sub has 2ohm voice coils, the load will be 4ohms which allows the amp to produce maximum power. The final impedance with 4ohm voice coils will be 8ohms. The power will be reduced, but the amp will operate without overheating.

Either set of the speaker terminals on the amp can be used. They are connected internally so it doesn't matter which one you use.

Hope this helps.

Can i kook up 4ohm dvc sub to a kac-x810d amp?


No, the sub is dual 4ohms...meaning if you parallel the positive speaker terminals and the negative speaker terminals you will have a 2ohm sub. Conversely, if you series the pos and neg you will have an 8ohm sub. if you wirte to just one set of terminals on the sub you will have a 4ohm sub.

How to hook up 2 10 inch speakers


For best results the output resistance of the amplifier must equal the combined resistance of the speakers. So if the amps says 8 ohms and you have two 4 ohm speakers you put them is series or if the amps says 4ohms and you have two 8 ohm speakers put them in series. If it says 4ohm and you have two 4 ohm speakers best to use only one. It Depends on the output resistance of the amps. It is usually written at the terminals where the speakers are connected.

Sony xplod 500w 4/3 channel


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.

Kenwood 350 w-2 amp wiring


you can simply take the input and connect it in parallel to the input of the second amplifier. The output of one amp will go to one speaker, and the output of the other amp will go to the other speaker.

The inputs of amplifiers are "high impedance" so putting more than one in parallel won't put any strain on the radio circuit.

Hope this helps.

Need info


how much power "wattage" does your speakers have and mtx is too powerful right? so need a good quality speakers. reply me with the wattage of the amp and the speakers.

My kicker amp turns off


It sounds like you may have the load impedance too low. How many voice coils per woofer? How many ohms is each coil? If you have DVC woofers, are the coils for each woofer wired in series or parallel? Are the speakers wired in series or parallel. Let me know if you need me to clarify anything.
