Good morning and welcome to fixya. not a bad setup you have here at all, you ned to start by checking the speaker wires inside the box to the connector inside and then the wires from connector to amp on outside. if everything looks fine there, then you need to check the amp for power out of the rca plugs to make sure the channel is not dead. if you are looking for a new amp you can try several different ones from fosgates new line up to soundstream's. im running 4 polk momo 12's on the tarantula amp and love it. they are great amps. hifonics also has a new line up pretty cool stuff, heard really good things about there stuff to. good luck and let me know so i can help you out.

Can you run two mtx 6500d amps in parallel for more power?


Not suggested to parallel the output of two amps. Instead take each amp, find out what the amps lowest impedance it can drive is and select your speakers based on that. According to MTX these are stable down to 2 ohms without a rated output power of 500Watts X 1. If you get two dual voice coil subwoofers with each coils characteristic impedance of 4 ohms, when you parallel the two coils you will get a 2 ohm load. Just maek sure the speaker can handle the 500 watts.

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.

I have one 12inch 1000 watt mtx sub what size amp should i buy


Hello taona80,

If the 1,000 watts is RMS, I'd recommend an amp in the 750-1,000 watt RMS range, perhaps like the Alpine MRP-M1000 or Rockford-Fosgate T1000bd. If the 1,000 watts is peak power, the subs continuous (RMS) power handling is much lower, probably 300-400 watts. In that case, I'd recommend the Alpine MRP-M500 or Rockford-Fosgate T500-1bd.

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Good L .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. MTX Audio

Sub will drain all the sound off the front speakers


if you have both amps connected to the same power wire this will happen...run another power wire to the alpine and this should solve the problem.

Low output from T8302 MTX Thunder AMP


It sounds like an Ic is to blame, Check individual channels to find which one is not working?

Clueless..!


You either are suffering from phase problems with the way you have your subs wired or you fried them and just don't realize it. I sell the TE1501D and these amps are not poorly made, they are however too powerful (1500+ @ 1ohm) for most subs on the market to handle continiously.

Cant figure out my car audio problems!!!!!


There are a couple of tests you can perform. I'd first recommend checking the shield ground. You'll need an ohm meter. The details can be found on the following page.

RCA shield ground test

You can also test the output with the multimeter. Set the multimeter to AC volts. If it's not an auto-ranging meter, set it to a voltage range of ~2v AC. Disconnect the RCA cables from the head unit. Touch one meter probe to the outer ring of the head unit's RCA jack. Touch the other probe to the metal contact in the center of the RCA jack. With the head unit near full volume and a clean signal source, you should read at least one volt on musical peaks. If you have a bass disc or a test tone disc (~60hz sine wave), use those.

Rockford Fosgate 800a2 To 2 SVC 2ohm subs


Ok.. Bridge the two sub into 4ohm than bridge to amp.


So. this how it goes.

sub1 + -
to      | |
sub2 - +
=      4ohm
       

           From Sub
                Two
            -          +  
            |           |
amp (L) - + (R)- +


This will use the full potiental of RF 800a2 amp. I believe it like 1153 watts max out.
