    I'd bought the Pyle dual voice coil sub-woofer from amazon- turns out they'd crossed the positive and negative- so to remedy the problem I'd crossed the 2 wires I'd cut & problem solved

SOURCE: wiring diagram

The LEd wires need a wire run from the speaker to the Fuse block in your car. The small Red wire from the LED will be the one that hooks to Swtiched 12 Volts supply on the fuse block so that your Led Turns on when you turn the keyswitch on. The Black wire goes to ground, or to a metal part of your cars body, probably the same point where your Amp is Grounded.

The Octane R10 is a Single Voice Coil or SVC.

SOURCE: How do wire up a Pyle dual 4 ohm sub woofer

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.

SOURCE: how do i wire up my mtx 15 5500 sub woofer dual

there are several ways, it all depends on the bass response you want, and with that, it also changes the ohms in the amp. i'm going to give you seval ways to hook them up. if you are running more than one just follow these steps per sub. the first one is if your sub is dual 2 ohm. Wiring Option #2

this is for dual 4 ohm coils

I need to wire 3 woofers but 2 are dual voice coil and one is single voice coil


sure, if you wish to wire them all together, wire the first dual voice coil subs first voice coil negative to 2nd voice coil positive, second voice coil negative to single voice coil sub positive, and single voice coil negative to 2nd dual voice coil subs 1st voice coil positve (again with the second dual voice coil sub, run the first voice coil negative to the 2nd voice coil positve) your speaker leads will be attatched to first dual voice coils 1st voice coil positive, and 2nd dual voice coils 2nd voice coil negative)

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

Help with hookup


I am assuming you are driving a sub-woofer. Run the amp bridged at 4 ohms. So a DVC(dual voice coil) 8 ohm sub with voice coils wired in parallel would give you a 4 ohm load. Just make sure the sub can handle at least 300 Watts Peak.

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 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.

Hooking up the speakers


Well, this means you have dual voice coil subs. These subs are for running one sub in stereo mode( meaning you can hook up a right and a left channel to one speaker). In your case you are using 2 subs, which all you have to do is run a jumper wire from one side of the sub to the other. Take your (+) and hook it up on the (+)on one side of the sub and take your (-) and hook it up on the (-) on the other side and run a wire from the remaining post to the other. And do the same thing on the other sub.

What is wrong with my system


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