Can someone please show me how to wire my subs to amp.. i have a 2600 watt planet audio 2 channel amp (2 ohm stable) and my subs are soundstream tarantulas t4 12s 900/1800 watts total. they are 1 ohm subs...


for your subs and amp the best way would be for the speakers to be wired in series1ch (mono or bridged)to have a 4 ohm load to your amp stable at 2 ohms
see pic for wiring diagram for 2 1 ohm dvc subs wired in series.
you will need more than one speaker wire for wiring the subwoofers coils(positive & negative terminals) together
hope this helps :~)

I have to hook up 4 amps in my car. 4 channel 700 watt ken wood, 2 channel 800 watt Sony, 4 channel 740 watt Jensen ,and a 2 channel Rockford fosgate. Which is best way to hook them up so I'm not ki


Pace posted on Saturday, March 05, 2005 - 01:08 GMT Your subs are dual 4 ohm voice coils so if you want to bridge your 2 channel amplifier to your two subs then wire them parallel, meaning the + to + and - to - ( Do this to both subwoofers), Then run a wire from one positive and one negative on each sub and bring the two positives together and the two negatives together and hook both positives to the far positive connection on your amp and connect both negatives to the other negative on your amp,

This will create a 4 ohm load on your amp.

Although if it's a two channel and you have two subs it's usually pointless to bridge them because if you use one channel per subwoofer its going to be the same as if both subs were bridged. example) 800 watts x 1 bridged power of your amplifie (4 ohms) is the same power as 400 watts x 2 at 2 ohms.

Can 2 ohm subs be used with a 4 ohm 2 channel amp?


You can but you will have to wire your subs in parallel....to a 4 ohm load then bridge it to your amplifier.....look up parallel wiring on google....Im pretty sure you will have to run jumper wires from your positive and negative of one sub to the positive and negative of the other sub.....then run the two wires to your amp bridged.....to make a 4ohm load.....let me know if that helps you and gd luck!!!!

How do I wire two subs up for the full 850 rms on a kac-9102d amp



  • Wire up two 4 Ohm subs in parallel (bridged) or one 2 Ohm sub.

  • You will take both of your subs positive leads and run them to the left positive (white connector on the amp) and both of your subs negative leads and run them both to the right negative (gray and black connector on the amp). That's max RMS right there. Pay attention to the Ohm rating of your subs as this does play a factor. What I explained is how to bridge two 4 Ohm subs. 8 Ohm is a little different but car subs rarely are 8 Ohm.

Hello..im trying to find a diagram on how to wire my subs down to 1 ohm..i have 2 12 in. Audiobahn alum12n..they are currently runnimg at 3 ohms on a hifonics 2500 watt 1 channel amp that only supports 1 2...


Hi, if you wire all voice coils in parallel, you will get down to 1.5 ohms. That is the lowest you can go with these 2 subs. Just hook the amps' positive to all 4 positive speaker terminals and the amp negative to all 4 speaker negative terminals. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I need to hook up two audiobahn A1200Q subs to a A1300hcq amp


The amplifier is only stable to 2 ohms.
Assuming the cubs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils - a 2 ohm load with 2 subs is not possible.
You can only wire up 1 dual 4 ohm voicecoil sub (both positives to amp... and both negatives to amp) to get a 2 ohm mono load.

I have a PHOENIX GOLD RYVAL V1502 amplifier and trying to hook it up at 2 ohms as it describes it can be 450watts x2 at 2 ohms running wires from bridged positive and negative to the first sub then two...


Hello mgonzalez390,

It sounds like the amp/subs impedance is not matched. According to the published specifications for the V1502 amp, it is only stable in bridged mode down to 4ohms, not 2ohms. You need to get the final impedance that the amp sees up to at least 4ohms or it will continue to shut down and eventually fail completely.

If your subs are dual voice coil and can be rewired so that each sub has an impedance of 8ohms, then you can safely parallel them to the amp like you have described. If they are single 4ohm voice coils, then you have 2 choices. Connect one sub to each channel or if you want to bridge the channels, then wire the subs in series, not in parallel. Wire the positive bridged terminal from the amp to the first sub positive, connect a jumper from the negative of that sub to positive on the other sub, and then the negative from that sub back to the negative bridged terminal on the amp. This wiring results in an 8ohm load to the amp and it should work OK without shutting down. But the power to each sub will actually be less than if you wire them separately to each channel.

Hope this helps.

Want to bridge my subs I have a kenwood kac-719


from what i have read about your amp, it is already a mono amp, and rated for 2 ohm's, so all you have to do is wire the subs in parallel (both positives together to positive and both negatives together to negative) or series/parallel if you have dual voice coils (both positive and both negative paired on each sub, then positive from amp to positive on one sub; negative on that sub to positive on next sub; then negative on sub to negative on amp) Note though, with two dual voice coil subs, you can have a 1 ohm load with the first set up, which can damage your amp. Let me know if this helps :)

Trying to wire my amp to my subs


no thats not it you are lucky you havent burned it up like that. wire each speaker to its own source positive and negative, you loose power when you bridge an amp and use two speakers, its best to hook up without bridging you will get more volume that way.

Sony amp bridging


Your amp, being a 2-channel amp, should have 2 speaker connections with a negative sign(-) and 2 with positive signs(+)...Take your speaker wires (You will need 4 of them) and twist the ends of 2 of the together and put them into the negative spot on 1 side of your amp. Assuming you have 2 subs, connect them 1 to each sub and be sure they are on the negative sides of the subs or both are on the same side of the subs. Then do the same with the positive leads except to put them in the positive spot on the opposite side of the amp. So you will have the negatives from one side's outputs (or channel 1) and the positives from the other side's outputs (channel 2). Thus, your amp will be "bridged" across both channels. Hope this helps...just comment back if you need a diagram or something. And be sure to leave feedback please.
