I highly recomend you use the hifonics colossous and wire the subs @ 2 ohms and you would be right about nominal power handling for the W7 which is rated @ 1000W, and your amp would push about 1100W to it. just be carefull when adjusting. and the best advice i can give you on the settings is as follows: Turn up the volume to the desired listening average level. (what you would normally have it on when driving) then adjust your amp by turning the different controls up, and then back down a 1/4 turn after distortion occurs. in your case with so much power dont turn them up all the way right away ease into it be gradual listen to the change in the sound.

you dont want to connect both of those amplifiers together. You could run them separately to separate subs or the jl to your sub and your alpine to your front speakers. But you dont ever want to mix and match amps to the same sub. Even if you had 2 jl500/1's you wouldnt want to just hook them up together. Because they both have to be putting out the exact same amount of power. Which no 2 amps are ever exactly the same. Some companies make bridges to properly connect 2 exact amps together. I Hooked up 2 JL 1000/1's to each voice coil on a 13.5 W7 and i smoked the sub. So i definitely dont reccommend doing it unless the amps are conneccted to separate things.

Jl audio 1000/1 problems


Hello l_miller36,

Depending on how much you paid for the amp on eBay, and how well you like the JL product, it may very well be worth the money to get it fixed. As for the wallet damage, you'll have to ask JL or one of their dealers. But, since the Slash2's routinely sell for over $1,000, I'd estimate the cost to be pretty high.

First, I'd send an email to JL Audio tech support and see if they have a "flat-rate" repair option or if they can give you an estimate of the repair costs. My second option would be to talk to a local car audio shop that does component level repairs. In the first case, you'd get exact replacement parts and whatever warranty JL gives on repairs. Not so with the local option, but it would most likely be less expensive.

Hope this helps, good luck.

I have 2mb quart 15's 2ohm sub and a hifonics bxi1608d amp


The two 2ohm subwoofers can only be wired to a 2ohm or 8ohm load. You are gonna want them wired 2ohms on a monoblock amplifier. the other option is to wire each sub to 4 ohms (series) and then connect each one to a separate channel on a 2 channel (stereo) amplifier. go for an amplifier that produces up to the MB's RMS rating and make sure they are enclosed in a box to their specifications and they should pound.

JL audio hook up problems!!??


your w7 13's are dual 1.5 Ohm, but according to JL website, are 2.41 Ohms when the coils are in series. Each 13 connceted to each amp with voice coils in series is your best bet. The amps are designed to put out the same amount of power from 1.5 to 4 Ohms. If you parallel the voice coils, you end up with .6 Ohms and the amp will go into protect mode. You'll be drawing a lot of current, so you may want to think about 1/0 guage power wire, upgrade the wire from the alternator to battery (usually only 8 guage) and think about multiple batteries.

Protection Function flashing with error code E-2


I do believe that error is a short between the positive and negative terminals. Check your wiring and measure with with a ohm meter, it should be more that 1, if not 2 ohms. With the wires from the speaker termanils removed and the amp off check the condinuity between the two terminals, there should be none...if you have some that thats where the short is occuring and work needs to be done on the amp to fix the problem
