Can i get down to a hafe of ohm witj the a2300hct

Yes and No.... You can wire your subs down to a half ohm and run it on your audiobahn amp however I would not do that if I were you the amp is only 1 ohm stable and these amps are famous for running hot at 1 ohm and go into thermal shut down I have owned quite a few and they all have this problem but running your amp under that ohm load will eventually cause the amp to fail it's not an if but a matter of when hope this helps

How do i get my 2 4ohm dvc type r's to 2 ohms for my mrp m1000 to get the full power?

ok its all in the way you wire them, just remember when you wire your speakers in series, the ohms build(add to eachother) which would make them total of 8 ohms, and if you wire in parrallel the ohm load cuts in half (2 ohms). So you want to wire them together in parrallel then run your wire to the amp. Just so you know though, if you bridge your amp, it will also cut the ohm load in half, so you would see total of 1 ohm which gives you more power, just make sure your amp is 1 ohm stable and your subs can handle it.

I have 4 mtx 9500 12in subs 2 of them is on a mtx 92001 and the other is on a mtx 4001d . would it be better to run all four on the mtx 4001d. for more power and a better sound or how should i run this set...

NEVER mix different power amps. Depending on the ohms of your subs, sell one of the amps, up to you. The 4001 has more power, but either amp will do the job, the amp needs to see a 1 ohm load, so your subs have to be dual 2 ohms, or single 4 ohms to do this. If your subs are dual 4 ohms then you will have to run your amp at 2 ohms which would be have the power, or a half an ohm, (Not Recomended) and be at double the power. You may be able to do a competion sound off and just "Burp" the subs, but at a half an ohm, dont expect to listen to it to long before it goes into protect and shuts down.

Power Acoustik LT 980-2 clipping while bridged pushing 1ohm load

Hello, your problem is that your amp is rated at 4 ohms bridged mono ans 2 ohms stereo. If your running it in stereo you need to raise the ohms to 2 ohms a channel and if your running it bridged into 1 channel you need to be running it at 4 ohms. Please rate this solution please so I can prgress on Thanks!

Amp bass cuts out cuts back on

its a pretty simple principle...combine 2 speakers, and the ohm load gets cut in half. wire them in a series, and the ohm load doubles. for example, you have 2 subs that are 4 ohms a piece. if you combine both + and both - and put them to the amp, it cucts the load in half bringing it to 2 ohms. or, if you connect 1 + to the other speakers =, then run the remaining pair of wires to the amp, that doubles the load to 8 ohms. youll have to "double-ohm" it for dual voice coil subs. on each sub, you can do the same thing. either combine both + and both = into 1 wire to cut the rated load in half, or wire them in a series to double the load by connecting a + to the other coils =, and using the 2 remaining wires. once you have each sub wired the way you want it, then you can use the same rules when connecting multiple subs, by wiring in a series or parallel. it sounds confusing and its hard for me to put into works, but once you do it a few times its really easy. just remember the 1 rule...wire 2 coils parallel to cut the coils load in half, and wire it in a series to double it. hope it helps.

I have 2 Maaudio HK4000 and i whant to bridge toghater? i have 2 pioneer subwoofers and i have it come down in 2ohm thogater. How can i bridge it?? mvh Leif

What are the ohms of the subs? Are they single or dual voice coils??? But FYI you can bridge the amps together, You have to use them separate one sub on each one. You can't run one sub on 2 amps.

Jh202 amp works for a few minutes stops for a few minutes any ideas

Sounds like the amp is going into Protection Mode. Does yours have green LED light then RED LED on it? The green is power and the red is Protection. You will need to either change the OHMS wiring or Put A Fan on it to Keep it Cool Inside.

The T10001 can drive a load lower than 4 ohms. Wire the coils of the individual speakers in series to make each speaker 8 ohms. Then wire all 3 speakers in parallel and connect them to the amp. This will give you a 2.6 ohm load.

Car Audio System Drwing too much power with 2 different Amps

A dual voice coil speaker can be wired to be a 2 ohm speaker or an 8 ohm speaker depending on whether you wire it in series (8 ohm) or parallel (2 ohm). When you bridge your amp then the two channels will share the load from your speaker. If the speaker is wired as 8 ohm then each channel of the amp is driving a 4 ohm load which is fine. If you are bridged into a 2 ohm speaker then each channel will be driving a 1 ohm load, which is a very very heavy load. Is your amp designed to drive a 1 ohm load? If not then that would explain why you are having a problem.

a possible explanation could be heating. the amp reaches its boiling point and cuts off. in this case, a fan may keep it from overheating. another option is a voultage problem, you may have to readjust the bias current. try measuring it if you know how). the amount of bias current depends on your output stage. something like: 20-50 mA for normal bipolar push pull probabely twice as much for darlington push pull and up to 250mA for MOS FET push pull.
