Hi Bobboo, Which Crunch Is it? Groundpounder, or Powerzone? best thing to do is give me the model number and I can figure the correct wiring. It is critical how you wire it, to get the best effect.

A kicker 600.1 wired to a jl w7 10" sub? Will that work?

The kicker 600.1 provides 600 watts at 2 ohms and 300 watts at 4 ohms the 10" JL W7 has 2 1.5 ohm voice coils so you will have to wire them in series. Take about 1.5 feet of 14 gauge wire and connect the positive of one voice coil to the negative of the other then the positive and negative that are left go to the amp. Your impedance should be 3 ohms and that amp should work just fine.

So I just bought a kicker cx 300.1 mono block amp to run my 10 inch comp d 4 ohm 300 watt sub. I ran it parallel and it smells like the coils are burning. Help

That's only normal for the burn in period. Make sure you're not running it in 2 ohm by wiring the sub wrong. That amp is not really 2 ohm stable for a sustained period

I have a kicker 10 comp d dvc 4 ohm 600 watt. How do I run a obcon 2000i 2 channel amp to it

You can't. Total mismatch of power and impedance.

You need a mono amp that can push the RMS watts of the sub @ 2 ohm (sub wired parallel).

I have 2 12 inch kicker rt dual 2 ohm subs. On a kicker cx1200.1 i want to kno how to hook it up to 2ohm to the amp. And if i can add another 10 inch kicker rt 2ohm sub in the future.

Do to the impedance Of your sub u can't run it @2ohms its going to either be @1ohm or 4ohms and your amp isn't 1ohm stable and u will risk damaging your amp. So your only option is to run it @4ohms and on a good note your sub is 100-600 watts RMS and your amp will push 400-500 watts RMS @4ohms. Now if you want to run 2 sub's in the future That amp will work perfect because it pushes 1,200watts RMS @2ohms and to wire your 2 sub's @1ohm just follow the steps in the image below. Hope this helped.25345194-v0hbouy2nvquqteoroa5j5rq-3-0.png

Can I hook up 2 lanzar opti1532 subs 2 a kicker kx 1200.1 or do I need a bigger amp, its a 1ohm stable amp an birth sheet says 1390watts but they told me at 14+ volts it will do 1400rms

Based solely on spec sheet information the Lanzars can handle 1300 watts RMS and the KX1200 is rated at 300x1 @ 4 ohms, 600x1 @ 2 ohms, & 1200x1 @ 1 ohm. Even with a 1 ohm load you will still only be providing 600 watts to each sub. While the kicker will provide more power at 14+ volts, no car creates more than 12-13 volts via its alternator. A car battery only provides 12.6 volts. So you will be loking at 1200 watts from 1 channel as a best case scenario.

Additionally, with your 2 subs, they will need to both be Dual 4 ohm voice coils in order to net a 1 ohm final load. Each voice coil will need to be wired in parallel and then each speaker needs to be wired in parallel.

Try to install 3 12w3d6 subwoofers connecting 3 sub together to put them in box

You need to wire them according to the limitations of your amp you can pull a 1 ohm overall load just by connecting all of your coils in parallel- or you can get an overall load of 4 ohms by wiring each sub individually in a series configuration which will yield a 12 ohm load per sub -and then wire the 3 sets in parallel which will bring your ohms back down to 4. You can do a lot with that many coils it depends on your amp really-ideally a 1 ohm stable class d mono amp that is 1000-1500 watts rms would knock the **** outta those things JL is the good stuff.

2 channel amp with 2 Kicker Cvrs 15"

Assuming the amplifier is 2 ohm mono stable... the amplifier is bridgeable... and the subwoofers are Single 4 Ohm Voicecoils, You would wire them as follows....

Both + on Both subs to the + bridged terminal on the amplifier.
Both - on Both subs to the - bridged terminal on the amplifier.

This will net a 2 ohm mono load for your amplifier.

If you have something different - let me know... and I will give you the proper wiring for what you have.

Does two 1ohm woofer = 2 ohm

if you buy the 4 ohm subs you can drop each of them to 2 ohm and then down to 1 ohm between the two of them. going with the 2 ohm no matter how you wire them you will either get 2 ohms 4 ohms or 8 ohms. hope this helps by the way the 4 ohm solobaric and the 2 ohm are both the same price.

I have 2 kicker 07CVR124 12" dual voice coil with a 800 watt mono pioneer amp. How do I wire it correctly

I'm not sure what pinoeer amp you have. If I remember correctly some are 1 ohm stable. In this case you would be able to wire everything in parallel. Meaning, with the voice coil, wire the positive to positive, and the negative to negative. Then wire the subs together positive to positive, and negative to negative. This will give you the total impedence of 1 ohm. If it isn't 1 ohm stable the best you could do is 4 ohms. To do this you would need to wire the voice coils in series and the subs in parallel. Meaning, wire the negative to positive and the positive to negative. Then take the subs and connect the positive to positive and the negative to negative. I hope this isn't too confusing. If you need further assistance let me know. Good luck
