I have a 12" kicker comp set up with a sosche 300 watt amplifier. I have the power and the audio cables ran correctly, but the sub sounds like a rainstorm with the music playing. Any help? Also when i turn off my car i hear a popping noise.

I had the same problem when i hooked up my memphis 500. i called the local audio store and they told me to make sure i had a good ground wire and keep the power and the remote wire away from each other. if they are to close they cause interference making the whining and popping noises. running your power and remote wires on opposite sides is what i had to do.

    Try switching you RCA's and if that doesn't work try a heavier set.

My kicker 12 inch cvr's arent hitting as hard as they should


amps and wiring kits are very optimistic on the output. If you want proper wire, buy some welding cable "0" or "00" guage. That solves the power delivery. Put a 1 Farrad (or more) capacitor near the amp, that solves the surge power issue. Make sure the box is suitable for the subs. Lastly I'd say do some research and find the right amp that can deliver the clean, huge current required to move some serious air!

I have a comp s 12 2ohm kicker and a comp vr 12 dual 2ohm kicker how do i wire these to stay at 2ohms to the amp


you can wire them to be at 2ohm load you need two of the same speaker. its is very bad on the amp to run like that and you will not get a good bass sound because one will over power the other sound wise

I have 2 10" Kicker Comp Subs


That amplifier is only rated at 150 watts at 4 ohms, or 300 watts at 2 ohms. Not a very strong amp to run 2 kicker comps. My guess is you have the subs wired wrong for your application. There are 2 types of subs, one is a dual 4 ohm, and one is a dual 2 ohm. Most people bridge these coils together and that cuts your ohms in half. For example. Lets say you have the 10cvr104 subs. Thats the dual 4 ohm sub. You wire the coils together in parallel, now its a 2 ohm sub. You have 2 of these subs running off of your amp, if they are hooked up in parallel, now you have a 1 ohm load, out of the amplifiers normal operation. Your amplifiers internals heat up really quick and there is a thermal overload, putting your amplifier into circuit protection mode. My suggestion for wiring your subs is as follows: for each speaker, wire the coils together like this- positive coil1 to negative coil 2 and negative coil 1 to positive coil 2. That is called running in series, and doubles your ohm load. Next, we need to wire the speakers together properly to hook up to your amplifier. For this, since the coils are hooked together, you only need to use one set of terminals from each sub. And take the positive from sub 1 and hook it to positive of amp. Take negative sub 1 and hook it to positive of sub 2. Take negative of sub 2 and hook it to negative of amp.

Got jl300/2 amp confused which subwoofer sounds good


Hello drsubhakar26,

JL W6's will perform well with from 150-600 watts RMS. W7's with from 150-500 watts. Less expensive Alpine Type R's work OK with from 200-500 watts RMS. Either of the brands will sound good. None of them will perform to their full potential with 300 watts RMS. Powering any sub with a 2-channel amp is a compromise. A monoblock is more efficient.

Hope this helps.

Concept cc752l how many watts


A easy way to tell how many watts an amp has is to look at the fuses on the amp itself eg. if it has one 10 amp fuse its probably a 100 watt amp, or say a 30 amp fuse would be around 300 watts. Most amps have more than one, so just add up the fuses and times it by 100.

Your amp


Do you have a remote wire set up? if not, you need to run one from your deck so that it can trigger the amp to come on.

I have a Rockford Fosgate Puch 1000 watt amp "thermal" problem


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.


If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up without the thermal LED being lit, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still indicates that it's in thermal protection, it needs to be serviced. A local repair shop will be the quickest. Rockford will email you the schematics.
