Rum a fused power line to the Battery, a fused remove on from the head unit or keyed fuse in the fuse box, ground it to the chassis, hook up the signal source using speaker wires or pre-amp cables. Bolt it down so it wont more while driving

SOURCE: bridge subwoofers

Without looking up the individual specs of your speaker and amp, I'll offer a few basics when it comes to bridging an amp.
Most important...find out what impedance (ohm) that your amp can handle bridged!! If you go below this rating, you will run the risk and most likely eventually overheat and short circuit the amp. You must also know the impedance of your sub (which can come in a variety) to be able to match them. Depending on this impedance match-up, it may be less beneficial to bridge the speaker to this amp. For example if there is an impedance mismatch you'll either get less power from the amp or short circuit the amp. If you know these I can help you come up with the best solution.
If you know bridging is the best option, then you'll have to know which terminals on the amp to use in order to bridge. This is how it normally works. On a 2 channel amp...you would normally take the positive from one channel to the positive on the speaker, and the negative from the OTHER channel to the negative on the speaker...and this is how you bridge the amp. The other two channels would remain UNCONNECTED. BUT!!! you have to make sure you use the correct 2 channels...it varies from manufacturer. But take heed not overload the amp...and not to overpower the sub. There are a few different ways that you can configure the subs if you find it beneficial to bridge your amp, these would take long to explain and would depend on the impedance of your subs and specs of your amp...these wiring configurations is how you match the impedance of the speakers input to the amps output (and is very important to do correctly) Look up "parallel and series" wiring configurations. Let me know if this helps, or if you need further help. Find out the impedance of your subs and the specs of your amp and i'll be able to assist you more. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to wire my kicker solar baric

All depends on your amp. Is it 1 ohm stable or not?
Parralell:
positive (pos) on voice coil 1 (vc1) to Pos on vc2 and negative (neg) on vc1 to neg on vc2. Then speaker wire from amp to one vc only = 1ohm load.
Series:
Pos from amp to Pos on vc1. Neg of vc1 to Pos of vc2. Neg of vc2 to amp = 4 ohm load.

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 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

Why does my amp turn off when i hook up my 12 inch kicker


Possibly due to a poor battery, you could try installing a power cap to prevent the amp shutting down/protect due to low voltage when the starter kicks in.

What kind of amp


It depends on the box you are installing them in. If you're going for sealed box they you can put 600-800 watts on them as long as you're careful with the gains and bass boost off. In a ported enclosure I wouldn't put more than 600 rms on them and still be careful with the gains. set your filter on your amp to about 80 hertz and match it on your source unit.
