What is wrong with my system

I have a pla 2200 2 channel pyle amp with the pyle plwb12d dual voice coil woofer that is dual 4 ohms ? also my head unit is a pyle pld138. I was wondering why when hooked up I am getting very little sound and I am receieving alot of distortion. Someone told me I had to run the dvc speakers in series ? and I also had to bridge the amp because it was 2 channel. I am stuck and need help..

Wiring may not be the problem but try connecting each coil to separate channel and make sure polarities are correct.

Can i power 2 12 subs a rockford punch z and a xplode with this amp i found all this **** in my garage and i need to know if it will power all this


First of all. Using two different kinds of sub woofers, is not an option, as these two sub woofers have different specifications and you should never mix sub woofers. Now the better choice from the 2, would probably be the Rockford. (cant be sure without knowing the models, power handling is also a factor in how well either of the sub woofers will play, but Rockford as a rule makes better sub woofers than Sony does) In my opinion, both the sub woofers deserve a better amplifier than what Boss has to offer. However to connect either of these sub woofers, you would need to determine how many voice coils it has and how many OHM the voice coil/s are. If it is a DVC (dual voice coil) and each voice coil is 4 OHM or 2 OHM, then you can connect one voice coil to one channel of the amplifier and the other voice coil to the other channel of the amplifier. If it is a DVC 2OHM you can also connect it wired in Series/Series to give a 4OHM load and should be connected to the BRIDGE dedicated speaker outputs of your amplifier. If it is a SVC (single voice coil) and it is 4 OHM, then you can connect the sub woofer to the designated speaker outputs of your amplifier that states BRIDGE. DO NOT run the amplifier in BRIDGE mode at 2 OHM as this will probably damage the amplifier. dreamsystems

I have a power acoustik 0V4-1200 amp and 2-12" kicker cvr dual 2 ohms. My amp keeps getting really hot and turning off. I have two pair of rca jacks from my cd player to the amp. One speaker hooked up...


i have found the specs to your amp. 1. Amplifier connections: Lets make things simple. As we look at the amplifier speaker connections, we will number the outputs 1 2 3 4 from left to right for the top connections and again 5 6 7 8 from left to right for the bottom connections. 1 should be connected to a positive (RED) (+) on sub woofer A on voice coil (a) 4 should be connected to a negative (BLACK) (-) on sub woofer A on voice coil (b) Now using a small piece of cable, connect negative of voice coil (a) to positive of voice coil (b) Follow the same procedure for the other sub woofer using 5 and 8 as 1 and 4 This configuration should make the amp run at 4 OHM BRIDGED x 2. i hope this helps. dreamsystems

How do wire up a Pyle dual 4 ohm sub woofer speaker, the PLCHW15 3600 watts. Do you wire up both sides or do you wire up one side of the connections?


Hello shannon_e_ha,

Both voice coils need to be connected to the amp.

If you wire the coils parallel (both +'s and both -'s together and then to the amp), the final load will be 2 ohms. If you wire the coils in series (one + to the other - and the remaining + and - to the amp), the load will be 8 ohms. If your amp is 2 ohm stable, use the parallel wiring. If it is only stable at 4 ohms or greater, use the series wiring.

Hope this helps.

I am running two 15 spl soundstream woofers with a soundstream 500sx amp how do I bridge them to get maximum performance


the 15 spl woofers are dual voice coil, i believe 2 ohms per voice coil.

the 500sx amp is rated 4 ohms bridged at 500 watts, it is capible of dropping to 2 ohms sterao, but no lower than 4 ohms bridged. to get maximum performance, you cannot use both voice coils of both speakers, you can only use one speaker, or both speakers, while only using one voice coil from each.

there is no point of bridging them, you can achieve maximum performance by attaching one voice coil from each speaker to each channel of the amp, while leaving one voice coil from each speaker unconnected. you could also use just one speaker, attaching one vioce coil to one channel, and the other vioce coil to the other channel. then, i would suggest getting a second, identical amp to run the second speaker.

if you are persistent on bridging to mono, then you can only use 2 voice coils (both from one speaker, or one from each speaker) and you must run the voice coils in series, that is, from the amp positive to the 1st vioce coil positive, then run a jumper wire form the 1st vioce coil negative to the 2nd vioce coil positive, then, finally, run the 2nd vioce coil negative back to the negative of the amp.

this is all assumming that each voice coil is 2 ohms and each vioce coil has seperate inputs, meaning that each speaker has 2 pairs of speaker terminals.

I have 2 positives and 2 negatives on back of my alphasonik sub, do i connect amp to one side or both sides?


Hello gaz69,

Your PSW815 has 2 ohm dual voice coils allowing you to better match the impedance to your amp. Each voice coil is 2 ohms. If you wire them in parallel (both +'s together and both -'s together and then to the amp terminals), the sub presents a 1 ohm load which is too low for most amps. Wiring the voice coils in series (one + to the other - and the remaining + and - to the amp terminals) results in a 4 ohm load.

This link shows the wiring diagram for both options. If you know for sure that your amp is 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #1. If the amp is not 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #2.

Hope this helps.

One of the negative wires came of the coil? the woofer has 4spring loaded terminals? is it still good?


Your woofer has 4 terminals because it is a dual voice coil woofer. It has two electrically seperate coils wound together. This can be used two ways. If you have one woofer only and a two channel amp, each channel can be fed to its own voice coil on the woofer. The other way would be to wire them in parallel to get a 2 ohm impedance or in series to get an 8 ohm impedance or just use one coil to get a 4 ohm impedance. If the negative broke off of one the other should still be good. This would usually be 4 ohm for each coil. The other broken coil can be repaired but it would require removal of the surround and spider from the frame and if you have never done this before it isn't recommended you try it. If you are running a dual channel amp you may want to bridge it to one channel if you are to use one woofer with one coil only. If you have a pair of woofers, use one coil on the other as well since the loads(Ohms) should be equal to each other.

Subwoofer Dual voicecoil wiring


1 ohm will draw too much current.those are designed for a 2 channel 2 ohm drive for each sub.running 4 ohms will be easier on the amplifier and since impedance is not constant it may run 3 ohms at some frequencies anyway. another solution if your power amp is bridgeable....put the coils in series on each woofer making 4 ohms.then parallel the two 4 ohms to make 2 ohms and run the amp in bridge mode at 2 ohms.since bass is omnidirectional,you can do it

if you have dual voice coils connect on each seporate sub negative left channel to possative right channel of the subwoofer same to other sub then conect the left possative and the right neggative to your box power terminal same to other sub then conect the two sub outs on your box left speaker positive to your positive left channel bridge then conect left speaker negative to the right speaker possative then connect your right speaker negative to your right channel negative brigdeg to your amp is single coil hook the box its self up the same way to your amp i have two dual voice cooil 12" hooked up to the same amp that way and it rocks without the power protecter turning on
