Hello evopower,

The JL 1000/1 will power the Orion HCCA OK.

It is stable only to 1.5 ohms so your best choice would be the 15.4 with dual 4ohm voice coils. In parallel, this would offer a 2ohm impedance. The 15.2 could only be wired for either a 1ohm load (too low) or a 4ohm load (less power).

Hope this helps.

    Hello again evopower,



    To parallel a single 4ohm DVC sub to offer a 2ohm load to your JL amp, wire both positives (+) from the sub to the positive (+) speaker output terminal on the amp, and both negatives (-) from the sub to the negative (-) speaker output terminal on the amp.



    Here's a link to Rockford-Fosgate's "wiring wizard" showing the possible configurations. You want wiring option #1.



    Hope this helps.

Actually the jl 1000/1 runs 1000 watts pure no matter what ohm from 1.5-4 so i'd get the 15.2 and run it at 4ohm (series) that will still give you the same 1000 watts and 4 ohm has a better clarity than 2 ohm

Yes it will do very nice although slightly underpowered so you shouldnt have to worry about blowing it and i would go with the 15.4 as it should be wired in parallel taking the sub to 2 ohm and now that i think about it the 15.2 would be at 4 ohm wired in parallel so you should check the amps efficency at the different ohm loads and see if it is a higher efficency at 4 which is the case for most amps but i am not sure about the jl with its regulated power output so just refer to your manual and the reason to do this is that the amp running at a higher efficency will pull less out of your electrical system and with your amp it will do it while still pumping out 1000 watts and that is soooo much better for your alternator but if you find that your lights still dim try a capacitor which is reccomended at a rate of 1 farad to every 500 watts so you would need at least a 2 farad and if u have another amp for your surround speakers then go with a 3 farad if they still dim then u will need the big 3 upgrade to your electrical system just google the big 3 upgrade to see what i mean also sound dampening will improve the sq of your system and with that combo you definitely need it at least in the trunk


sorry so long for a simple question i just want people to fully understand what they may need

For da orion 2500d, what would be the difference between 10'', 12'', & 15'' orion hcaa subs besides a matter of price and inches? I have two of the orion 2500d amps and am ready for the subs. I would...


I honestly would go with 2 12 inch dual 2 ohm subs and wire them one per amp. That will give you a 1 ohm load to each amp and will give the HCCA's 2500 rms per sub... It will be stupid loud... 10s hit tighter than 12's usually and 12's tighter than 15's but u will get more air movement out of a 15 than the 12's and 10s... but... 2 10's require say a 4 cubic foot box to perform well... 2 12's require a 5 cubic foot box to perform well and 2 15's require about 7 to 10 cubic foot to perform to their fullest... no matter what if you put a sub in a box that's too small it will not perform or sound like what you want it to... go 2 12's and like a 5.50 cubic foot box or a 6 cubic foot box and you will love it...

I have 2 jl-w6 subs n a orion hcca 250 amp how do i run wirering


Hello brianmitchel,

From what I am able to determine, the Orion HCCA250 is a bridgeable 2-channel amp that is stable to 1ohm when bridged and outputs 800 watts RMS into that load.

The JL W6's in both 10" and 12" versions are dual voice coil with 4ohm coils so they can be wired to present either an 8ohm load (series) or a 2ohm load (parallel). They can handle 600 watts RMS.

With this combination, the best configuration would be to wire the sub voice coils in parallel for a 2ohm load and then parallel both subs to the amp bridged terminals for a final impedance of 1ohm. The subs will each be getting 400 watts.

In any event, I would not recommend running subs in series. There is some evidence for distortion being caused by something termed "back EMF".

Hope this helps.

My Orion d-5000 amp which is wired to an Orion hcca 12.2 sub cuts out at high volumes , it's wired with 0 guage wires


Your speaker is a dual 2ohm sub. If you have both voice coils wired Parallel that will drop the ohm load to 1, which the amp can not handle. You need to wire the voice coils in series. Treat each voice coil as a speaker.

the speakers most not go lower than 2ohms.when the amp. is bridge you are connectin 2 channels.your speakers are most important,the impendence of it,in ohms e.g 4ohms or 8ohms.note make shore the amp.can go down to 2ohms when bridge,or connect the speakers in series.if you not shore.

Orion hcca 250


i can make this relatively simple.
2 stages:
Stage (1) wiring the Sub inside the box;
Unscrew the SUB from the Box, (& undo the wires)
Connect both +Positive terminals on the SUB to the +Positive terminal on the inside of your BOX.
Connect both -Negative terminals on the SUB to the -Negative terminal on the inside of your Box,
Then screw the SUB back into the Box.
u Have just wired yr sub in parallel. any Amplifier will see it as 1woofer with 1OHMs resistance.

Stage (2) bridging your amp
(please check Amplifier instructions on which terminals to use)
generally you use "LEFT -Negative" and
"Right +Positive"
and connect to the corresponding terminals on the Sub Box.
Hope that helps someone.

Sub does not operate


There could be many issues, from fuses in your amp, to power getting to your amps, to "low" impedance on your amp, and the circuit shutting down. Or it could even be your head unit, perhaps there is a setting on the HU that turns ON/OFF the subwoofer. BTW, you are running to low of an impedance on that amp. If my memory serves me correct, the lowest impedance that they JL Audio recommends is 1.5 Ohms.
