I have 2 DB drive 10 subs dvc 4ohm each VC (pt10d4) my amp is mono block 1ohm 3200 watts how to hook up series or parallel?

parallel is all positives (Red+) to all + and then keep all the negative's (Black -) together hooking them to the amp. if you dont have the big 3 upgrade (extra battery thick wire 0-4 AWG wire and an extra battery) keep it to 2 or 4 ohms and google impedance calculator and go from there. also just because your amp is 1 ohm stable doesn't mean it won't break it at 1 ohm and cranked up all the way

How do i fix a frozen 12 inch power acoustik FUBAR-12W sub

You have a case of a blown sub. You will need a recone kit. You ca send it in to a company like fix my speaker or google recone kits for Power Acoustik FUBAR. May be cheaper just to get another sub.

    MTX 12'' sub noise

    Sounds like your sub is overextending itself, and possibly losing contact at the voice coil. Overextending will make a weird rattling sound, losing contact at the voice coil will make a popping sound.

    What enclosure do i need for cerwin vega v-max 124 12" sub

    Just get a 12" sub box enclosure for an audio store near you or make a custom box, a larger box supposedly gives you more bass yet at the cost of boot space. I have a type R sub and the box is only as big as it needs to be for the sub to fit and it gives amazing bass.

    5 stage band pass sub box, 1 sub stolen, box built to spec subs

    I would try walling it up unless you are going to buy 2 brand new subs. the problem is the older power subs had such small magnets so they needed alot less air space inside the box. Unless you can find the EXACT subs this box was made for I would recommend chopping it and doing a single sub. if you try a replacement sub go with the 12" P1 series they are a close match for the power 12's of the past.

    What size enclosure (sealed)for Alpine 12"1242D(METAL Music)

  • 12" subwoofer with dual 4-ohm voice coils
  • Kevlar reinforced pulp cone with Santoprene™ rubber surround
  • cast aluminum frame with perimeter venting
  • frequency response: 25-500 Hz
  • power handling: 200-500 watts RMS (250 watts per coil)
  • peak power: 1,500 watts
  • sensitivity: 85 dB
  • top-mount depth: 7-5/8"
  • sealed box volume: 0.57-1.0 cu. ft.
  • ported box volume: 0.75-2.0 cu. ft.

  • For rock, i actually have 2 seperate 12's in slot port boxes i built facing forward. Facing forward reduces a little resonance and spl, but keeps alot of that annoying rattle off your tag lol

    Hope this helps :)

    Dimension please for enclosure 12w3v2-d2

    Typically you use one cubic foot per sub, so a 2 cubic foot box will work fine. To build a basic one, just a rectangular box, using 3/4" MDF (excellent material for a box), cut pieces this way:

    2 - 25.5" x 13.5"
    2 - 25.5" x 12"
    2 - 12" x 12"

    This will give you an interior volume of exactly 2 cubic feet. Cut your sub holes out of one of the 25.5" x 13.5" pieces.

    Battery keeps going flat!!! i have instal a big boot build

    Hi Prue84,


    Check to see if your Brake light switch is stuck. When you get out of the car, go to back and look to see if any lights are on. This will kill your battery in a few hours.  The Orion Xtr12 has nothing to do with killing a Battery.
