Speaker wire. I recommend electrical tape as well

SOURCE: 2 12" dvc subs 2 ohm stable amp

+ on amp output to + on speaker #1 to + on speaker #2. - on amp output to - on speaker #1 to - on speaker #2. This is a parallel circuit....4 ohms in parallel with 4 ohms = 2 ohms. IF it were wired in series....would represent 8 ohm load.

I have 2 2 ohm dvc alpine type r 12 inch subs. Each voice coil on both subs reads 2.5 on ohm meter. I need wireing diagram to hook up to a boss 2500 class a/b amp at 2 ohm


To have 2x 2 ohm subs wired up, they either need to be wired in series or in parallel. In series, they will total as a 4 ohm load to the amp (or 5 ohms if 2.5 each) and in parallel, they will be 1 ohm (may be closer 1.25 ohms I think).
If this is a mono block (single channel) amp, I can't see that you will be able to wire them for a 2 ohm loan. You may have to wire them in series to be a 4/5 ohm total as the amp probably won't be 1/1.25 ohm stable.

What is the best way to wire two kicker comp r 12' s to a two channel amp for max bass?


First, you need to know whether you have the 2 ohm DVC subs or 4 ohm DVC subs. Second, you need to know the minimum impedance the amp can handle (most are 2 ohm, some are less). Putting two voice coils in parallel will cut the total impedance in half (e.g. 2x 4 ohm voice coils in parallel = 2 ohms total). Putting subs in parallel will also cut the impedance in half.
At one end of the spectrum, you could put the 2 ohms DVCs in parallel, then parallel the two subs, and bridge the 2 channels of the amp. That would put 0.5 ohms impedance on the 1 bridge amp channel. If the amp can do 0.5 ohms x 1ch, do it. Otherwise, you may have to run the subs on separate channels.

I have an old school autotec xs 1500.1 and need to know how to hook up the outs to make it 1 ohm


Since it is a mono block amp, it depends on your subwoofer (s), and how you wire them to the amp.

Single 4 ohm sub would be just that, 4 ohms.
Single dvc 4 ohm sub, with both voice coils wired parallel would be 2 ohms.

2 dvc 4 ohm subs wired parallel would be a 1 ohm load.

Can i run a 4ohm.dvc & a 3ohm.svc off of a mtx te 801d


if you wire the 4 ohm sub voice coils in parallel you will have a 2 ohm load for the Image Dynamics sub, the JL sub only being single voice coil will of course be 3 ohm.
You cannot connect them both to the amp you specified as when connected the total load will be less than 2ohms and the amp will either trip it's protection circuit or could damage the amp, My suggestion is to try each sub separately and decide on the one you like the most or obtain a matching pair for the 4ohm DVC.

Best way to connect a 15'' kicker cvr15 4 ohm dvc [single sealed box] and a volfenhag zx-4712 1000w 12'' 4ohm+4ohm dvc to my pyle 885 1000w 4 ch. bridgeable amp and how to wire the voice coils that are in...


best way is to just run the volfenhag with a set of wires for 2 channells(one set per coil) left and right @ 4 ohms per channell. The CVRs you can parallel the coils(2 ohms) and run a set from each sub to the amp in stereo left and right. This will give the kickers a little more juice than the 12 but should be fine.

Want to bridge 2 channel amp to push single 4 ohm dvc sub


Hello k_rabbit89,

A 4 ohm DVC sub can be wired in series like you described for an 8 ohm load or the voice coils can be wired in parallel for a 2 ohm load.

If your 2-channel amp isn't stable down to 2 ohms when the channels are bridged (most 2-channel amps are only stable to 4 ohms when bridged), you do not want the voice coils paralleled. The amp will overheat, go into protection mode, and eventually fail completely. A sub with 2 ohm voice coils would be a better fit. That way, you could series the coils for a 4 ohm load and the amp would operate OK with the channels bridged into that load.

But anyway, for the best power from THAT amp to THAT sub, your best wiring solution would be to wire each voice coil to a separate channel. The problem with that is that the signal to each coil needs to be EXACTLY the same or you will have one coil trying to move the cone out while the other one tries to move it in. You can closely approximate identical signals on the output side by using the same input to both channels. Do this by using only one RCA connection (either right or left channel) from your head unit and split it with a "Y" cable.

Hope this helps.

I need to know how to bridge a a 4 ohm 15 inch sub down to1or2ohm


Hello solo7908,

With a single 4ohm DVC sub there are only two possible wiring solutions, parallel the voice coils for a final 2ohm load or series the voice coils for an 8ohm load. In your case, you want to wire them in parallel, both positives and both negatives connected to the amp terminals.

Here are the diagrams: (-) to (-) and then to the amp - (+) to (+) and then to the amp. Impedance = 2ohms.

Hope this helps.

huge shared common space slot loaded box (size depends on sub 10", 12" 15" you need to clarify that please) the amp specs on earthquakes site say the phd5000 is rated at a max output of 5k watts at 1 ohm 3k watts at 2 ohm so, with 3 dvc 2 ohm subs you only have 3 options of which only 2 will be a usable solution:

1. 3- 2ohm dvc series at sub parralel at amp = about 1.33 ohms at the amplifier this is the best option to get the most power to the subs as each sub will produce a 4 ohm load then wire each one to the amp the amp sees 3 4 ohm parralel loads which = 1.33 ohm so based on the amp specs you would be close to 1200 watts per sub.

2. 3- 2ohm dvc wired in series at sub and all 3 subs series wired together very difficult to wireand will give you a 12 ohm load which is next to no power at all (not a viable solution)

3. 2- 2ohm dvc parralel wired to each other and then at amp the amp sees a 1 ohm load and makes 5k watts max but you can only (REREAD THAT LINE! ONLY USE 2 SUBS IN THIS WAY) WHICH GIVES THE MOST POWER BUT ONLY USES 2 SUBS

This is a single channel amp that puts out about the same power at 4 Ohms or 2 Ohms. If you have two 4 Ohm single voice coil subs, then wire them parallel (both pos and both neg) to achieve 2 ohms. If you have two dual 4 Ohm voive coils, you want to do a series - parallel config to get to 4 Ohms (voice coils in series, then parallel the subs). Same with DVC 2 Ohm subs, series parallel = 2 Ohms. Do NOT go below two Ohms. You will blow the amp (actually, it'll do 1.5 Ohms). If you happen to have 2 Ohm single voice coil subs (not as likely) run them in series. Most amps will put out about twice as much power at 2 Ohms vs. 4, but this amp is designed to put out about the same. Hope this helps!
