I was wondering what wattage amp I should have for my 2 kenwood excelon 1600 watt rms 12s an if I should wire them parallel


first thing are the subs 1600rms a piece? If so, buddy you need about 3000 watts rms. No less than 2000 to do them justice. Wiring parallel depends on the ohm load of the subs, if they are dvc's and the lowest ohm load the amp can handle. Not all amps are 1ohm stable.

I have two Kicker dvc cvr's 12's and I want to hook them up to a Kenwood KAC-520 1000 watt amp. Whats the best wiring to wire these?


The best thing to do would be to get an amp installation kit, at an auto stereo store or Wal-Mart automotive department. It will have the wiring and connects that you'll need to wire everything up.

I got 2 pcs of kicker 12L7, one is 2ohm and the other is 4ohm DVC. in there any chance i can run them together with one amplifier? i got a venom VD2600S and venom 1600.D, will it be ok if i use each...


Run the amp in stero Run the 2ohm to one chanel, Wire the dvc 4ohm to run 2ohm + to + - to - to the other chanel and you should be fine.
If you had a 1ohm stable amp you could run both speakers wired 2ohm to a mono amp and have a 1ohm set up and double the power!

Just woundering if i could bridge one sub to front and one to rear the subs are kenwood w3514 dvc subs the amp is kenwood kac-x501f


Hello bigmac208,

Yes, that would be the best connection for both the subs and the amp.

I'd wire the sub voice coils in series since the amp will not be stable at 2 ohms when the channels are bridged. The power will be somewhere between 100-200 watts RMS to each sub. While it's not pavement pounding, it should provide pretty good bass, especially if you tweak the crossover and boost settings for best bass response.

Hope this helps.

I need to know how to wire my 2 12' kenwood w3514 dvc sub woofers parellel


For parallel connections, simply wire posotive to positive and negative to negative. But beware! this lowers the impedence (ohms) by half. In other words if you have 4 ohm woofers, in parallel they would be two ohms. Make sure your amp can handle that. Otherwise connect them in series.

How to adjust the controls and gain on my kenwood 9104d 1800w amp


Hook the speakers in series to decrease your chances of blowing the amp and/or speakers themselves. And at high volumes make sure that the bass control is set for flat response.

The amp says it's 1 ohm stable, so assuming the DVCs are dual 4 ohm, you should be able to connect all "+"'s together and all "-"s together, like the picture below:

As for the amp shutting off for a few seconds, it sounds like it's either:
A) Not getting enough power at high volume.
OR
B) Overheating.

The cap on the +12V to the amp should help, but putting a meter on the +12V might tell you whether it's dropping too low (<11V).

When you first turn the volume up, how long does it work fine before shutting off? Is it with the vehicle running or not?
