Depends on what output your stereo is. If you underrate the speakers (speaker watts is less than stereo output), the unit will sound louder for a while, then you end up blowing your speakers with the excess distortion. If you overrate the speakers (speaker watts is higher than stereo output) the speaker will not operate correctly and the distortion can damage it also. Its best to get a close match. Slightly higher is better. It is important you know actual wattage output not PMPO ( Peak music power output) A lot of stereos are rated at PMPO. The higher number sounds great but in reality, the figure is the MAX output and by then the sound is distorting badly. Distortion ruins more speakers than anything else...

I have 3 Kenwood 12'inch subwoofers need to know how to wire them up to a Kenwood KAC-9105D


Follow the link and use the first diagram which illustrates wiring the subs to 2.66 ohms http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp~Q~3~I~42

Remember that that amp is one ohm stable so you will not be getting the most out of that amp with that subs set up. The subs will only see 650 to 850 watts total...so each sub will only see about 215 - 275 watts a piece. Find out what the RMS wattage of your subs are each an determine if the wattage I mentioned above meets those requirements.

Can i use a 300 watt amp for 2, 800 watt woofers


yes, but you would not get the same performance as you would if you gave them the suggested power. I have found that it is always better to use a more powerful amp than your subs are rated for (as long as it is clean, high quality, low distortion power). I have had the best luck with name brand amps (kicker,rockford fosgate,phoenix gold,etc...). I hope this will be helpful to you.

I have a 12 inch auduobahn 400 watt that is a special edition d jones. what is the best and most efficient way to install it with a jensen 400 watt 2 or4 channel mosfit power amp.


Is it a 2 or 4 channel amp???? Does it have a lpf (low pass filter)??? If its a four channel it prolly wont sound too great. If its a 2 channel you need to bridge sub to amp. Usually its the 2 outside terminals on the amp. Might have a diagram on the bottom of amp

Finding the best amplifier


Hello sharky75,

That 1600 watt peak power figure for your subwoofer can't tell you what amp you need. You need to know the maximum RMS power the sub can handle. And you need to know the impedance (ohms) of the voice coil(s). JBL GT5 series subs have an RMS rating of 275 watts. The GTO series handles 300 watts. The Power series handles 400 watts. The GTi series handles 700 watts. Some are single voice coil, so the impedance is fixed. Others are dual voice coil allowing you to wire them for different impedance loads.

For maximum performance your amp should be able to provide at or near the same number of watts RMS into the lowest impedance at which the sub can be configured. For example, if your sub is the Power Series Model number P1224, it has dual 4ohm voice coils and can be wired to present either a 2ohm load (parallel) or an 8ohm load (series). You want to wire the voice coils in parallel for the 2ohm load and select an amp that outputs up to 400 watts RMS into 2ohms. The Orion Cobalt CO8001 is just such an amp. If you have one of the GTi Series subs, a better amp would be the JVC Arsenal KS-AR75 which outputs 700 watts into 2ohms.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
I see some other ppl with this motherboard got the same message. They fix this with going in the BIOS and set the "optimized defaults" In the BIOS.
