It will power them but it will only push a small amount of wattage to them. something like 45 watts so they won't be very loud but if you run the wires you will hear them. It's beneficial to just invest in an amp you can pick up a 200 watt pretty cheap these days. and you will be much happier with the end result.

I was given a subwoofer and box but do not know where to go from here in terms of hooking it up in my car. It is a Rockford fosgate punch p112s4.


First youll need an amp. Depending on what size the sub is a 500 watt rms amp can hold up to about a 300 watt kicker. If your looking for something bigger u can get a 1000 watt amp and hook up two 300 watt kickers. To hook up the amp youll need a car amp power cable, power control cable, speaker wire, amd a car amp ground wire. They usually sell kits that run aboyt 40 bucks. The power cable goes to the batter as well as the ground cable. The power control cable goes to the back of the head unit. (You will kost likely need a more modern headunit if urs is stock). Once this is done put the sub in the box (i recomend super glue because metal nails take away from the bass). Put the speaker wire to the speaker positive on left negative on right. Same with the amp. And now ur bumpin ;)

Wiring a crossfire vr602 at 4ohm


OK what you are saying now is that your speakers are dual voice coil; models? 4 Ohms per Coil? I have always used single 4 Ohm Voice ciol speakers since amps are mostly based on 4 Ohm outputs. but you can get 8 Ohm dual voice coil subs also. With 8 Ohms per coil you can get 4 Ohms if you parallel the wires. What is best for you and will get you the most stable power and still will be in the specs of that amp is to run the amp in BRIDGED MODE running each subs voice coils in series with each other then run those 2 subs in parallel to the amplifier giving it a 4 Ohm load. So, your will have two sets of wires from your amp 1 for each speaker. Then you will take a short piece of wire that will connect the + to the - of each voice coil then hook up the wires from your amp to each sub What it will be is 4 Ohms + 4 Ohms = 8 Ohms per speaker the 8 Ohms in parallel each speaker to the Bridged amp output using just the + from one channel and the - from the other will give you a total of 4 ohms and power out put of 600 Watts so that ends up being 150 watts per voice coil or 300 watts each speaker

How can you bridge a 2 channel 300 watt amp to a 4 channel 300 watt car amp?


if you have (4) 4 ohm speakers (No Subs), then you simply take the (2) positives from the two right speakers, and the (2) negatives together and put them on the right output of the amp. Do the same for the other side. This will have the amp at a 2 ohm stereo load on each side, which will max out the power of the amp. Will sound great with any small power amp.

What is the best way to wire four 6" 55 watt


My advice would be to connect the front speakers and the sub woofer to the amplifier and run the remaining rear 2 speakers from the headunit. This way you dont stress the amplifier to run on two different loads at the same time and still maintane control over your system. Bridge your sub woofer on chanel 3&4 and do not forget to set the LPF for chanel 3&4. If your speakers are not components in the front set the HPF on chanel 1&2 to roughly 60 to 80 Htz.

I want a reliable system.


if you bought that equipment today then your answer is yes your amp will power the subs but if i was you and you want more bass I would go with a two channel amp or even a mono block amp that will be 1 ohm stable and if you decide to do that you might want to get subs that are dual 4 ohm voice coils and run them in series that will get you 1 ohm of resistance

I am wondering about car amplifiers, I don't know what kind to get, I have Alpine 6.5" 2-Way Car Speakers (SPS-600), 80 watt as my front speakers, and Alpine 6 1/2" 2-Way Car Speakers (SPR-17C), 100 watt...


I would strongly recommend that you get a 5 channel amp that puts out 75watts rms per channel that will deliver between 200-300 watts to the sub channel. I use planet audio amps myself and they run strong all day every day-maybe you could look at a planet audio vrx 600.5(5-channel) it throws 100w x4 and 200 or 300 to the subs depending on the resistance of the sub. Good luck

yor subs have dual 6 ohm voice coils from the sound of it-your amp is rated at 650 watts rms at a 1ohm load. The best you can do with the equipment you have is to wire ALL the coils of your subs in parallel and that will give you a 1.5 ohm load for the amp.It should knock the hell outta them with 300 watts on each sub - good luck

Hello, need to know how i should wire a single 14" sub spk to my ST4-720 ??


havent heard of too many 14" speakers... but it all depends on what ohm the speaker is. single 4 ohm- bridge it on one set of channels. left + right- . if its a dual 4 ohm i wouldnt reccomend using it at all. you could technically bridge each coil on each set of channels. but it may not sound right. kinda hard to set the gains and match them. dual 2 ohm- run the sub stereo. one coil to one channel, the other coil to the other channel. single 2 ohm. dont use it unless you get another sub like what you have. then run it stereo. one sub to one channel. the other sub to the other channel.

Wiring for 2 subs for max performance


This amp is rated at 500 watts into a 4 ohm load bridged mono or 250 watts x 2 into 2 ohm load stereo. Do not go below that impedance in either case. The amp was meant to dissipate a certain amount of power, driving it to hard will lead to damage. Your speakers look like they are dual voice coils @ 4 ohms each. To get the max power while still saving your subs would be to parallel the voice coils on each woofer then run them in stereo with your amp. Stereo 2 ohm is 250 watts per speaker.

What do you mean by the subs should have more watts than the amp.and subs mean woofer ? actually i dont know any thing abt this. what is 8 ohm stereo, 8 ohm bridged,4 ohm stereo. etc etc...?


If your planning on using a stereo system in your car or home you need to follow some rules otherwise your just wasting money. The watts of a speaker means how much power it can handle. The higher the number the more power it can handle, and usually the louder it can get without distorting. If your amp has more power or close to the wattage rating of the speaker you will blow the speaker, it can even get so hot it ignites. The amount of ohms is the electrical resistance the speaker provides. House speakers usually have 8 ohms where car speakers tend to use 4. 8 ohm stereo means your left and your right are separate channels and each speaker has 8 ohms. 8 ohms bridged means you bridge the left and right channel to increase the power output of the amp and you have to use either 1 8 ohm speaker, or 2 4ohm speakers in parallel to prevent damage to the system. Same goes for 4 ohms. If I remember correctly you want your sub(woofer) to have a wattage rating 20% higher than the amp. Remember if the speaker overheats its no good, but most amps if they overheat they just shut off until they cool off, but only if they state they have a thermal overload protection.
