Answer depends on what kind of Ohm Load your amplifier is capable of as a lowest allowed setting. ie if you have a 1400W at 4 Ohm amplifier, the connection would need to be different than a 1400W at 2 ohm amplifier. also, on the speaker what is the rated ohm load per coil since it's a quad coil speaker (should say somewhere on it's box, or in it's manual. I'd assume 4 ohm per coil) we'll do that math after you get those figures in to me.

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

4 plugs on each speaker i only have two wires from my amp


The reason you have 4 plugs on your sub is because it has a dual voice coil. It is basically like having 2 subs in one. You have 2 wiring options you can wire in 2ohm or 8 ohm loads. most amps are 1,2,or 4 ohm so i suggest going 2 ohm. The amp should be rated for 800-1200Watts @ 2 ohm load for this sub to work properly and make sure that amp is at max 80% by adjusting gain.This website will help with wiring be sure to note that for 2 ohm load the + are hooked up together. and the - are hooked together a parrallel ciruit.

Wonding can you hook up 4 8omhs speakers to a dual center channel. rear plate on amp says 1 speaker 8 omhs min 2 speakers 4omhs min there are 4 posts in back if i hook up 2 8omhs speakers in parral to both...


You are correct

spks in p = lower than the rating of one

spks in s = greater than the rating of one

so 2 x 8ohms in p = 4ohms

and 2 x 8ohms in s =16ohms

Make sure that you do not connect too many speakers to the amp, and try to stay as close as possible to the amps specs.

Hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa

What is the very best way to wire 3 sets of speaks and 2 subs through a 4 ch. amp and a 2 Ch. amp.?Thank you, Paul


Ummmm Im gonna give this a try-If it were me i would run the 4 channel ground pounder on the doors and rear panels -the front 2 channels run the component set exclusively at 2 ohms per channell and run the 8 inch 3 ways in parallel with the rear deck speakers for a combined load of 2 ohms per channel on the rear channells-naturally the 8 inchers and the 6.5's are going to be able to handle a little bit more bottom end than the component set so you can feed a little more midbass to those rear channels- I dont know the resistance of the coils on your subs or the model of the MA amp you are using but if you can throw 600 or 700 on your subs that should be sweet enough- hope its not a waste of your time or maybe you already tried it set up that way-good luck though

Legend Amp hook up manual.


Pretty Straight Forward get a 8 or 4 gauge amp wiring kit.

Run your hot wire to the +12V from the battery make sure to install the supplied inline fuse near the battery don't connect to the battery until installation is complete.

Run the REM to your stereo power ant. Wire. if available.

Run the GND to Metal Chassis Ground keep it as short as possible.

Run the RCA Cable from the back of the Stereo to the RCA Inputs or Low Level on the amp.

This amp is 2 Ohm Stereo Stable which means you can connect 2 (4 ohm) speakers in parallel to each channel or 1 (4 ohm) speaker on each channel or you can connect 1 (4 ohm) Speaker in bridged mode.

There are other speaker configurations you could use but you cannot drop the load below 2 Ohm in stereo mode and no lower than 4 ohm in bridged mode.

Hope this helps

that subwoofer has dual 4ohm voice coils, if your amp can handle 2 ohms, you would put a wire from the positive (+) on the amp to the positive on both connectors on the sub, then hook the negative (-) on the amp to the negative on both the sub connectors that will be a 2 ohm load on your amp make sure your amp at 2 ohms is not more than 600 watts RMS or 1200 max.

How do i wire 10' kicker cvr


dual 2 or dual 4

dual 2 wire vc's in series for a 4 ohm load each. Hook each speaker seperate channels on the amp.

dual 4 wire vc in series for an 8 ohm load each. Hook both + to the right + on the amp and both - to the left - on the amp. or

dual 4 wire vc in parallel for a 2 ohm load each and hook each speaker to seperate channels on the amp.

It sounds like you've got too little impedance on it. How are the speakers wired? Are they in series (one speaker per channel) or are they in parallel (speaker 1 neg wire hooked up to channel 2, and speaker 2 neg wire hooked up to channel 1)? Or do you have a single speaker bridged (pos wire on one channel, neg wire on the other)? Often, an amp going into protection is a result of too much current draw, which happens when you're running a 2-ohm load on an amp that isn't rated to handle that (many are only OK at 4-ohms, which you'd have with series wiring). Let me know how you have the speakers wired and we'll go from there.

If you had 4 single voice coil speakers you can create either of those 2 ohm or 4 ohm setups. If you run 2 of them in parallel you will get the 4 ohms. If you run 4 of them in parallel you will get the 2 ohms. In parallel I mean that you connect the positives together and run them to the positive on the amp and the connect the negatives together and run them to the negative on the amp. Let me know if you need more help. Good Luck.

Make sure that you have the subs wired in a 4-ohm series and not a 8-ohm load
