What's the best way to hook up my jl audio 13" w 7 sub to my jl audio 1000/1 amp


the best way? hmm. i would start off with some wire. Keep in mind that you will need to separate the positive (usually red or has a stripe or marking on it) from the negative (Black usually is the common color for this wire) and hook the up according to your amps positive and negative hook ups / terminals following your sub-woofers terminals. then depending on your sub woofers Voice coils (Duel or single voice coils) yours are duel or quad coils but i\'m sure they are duel (2 of each positive and negative equaling a total of 4 posts on each sub-woofer). figure out your amps ohm load handling and does your amp run hot (1,2 or 4 ohm stable some are even less like 0.5 or lower) i would run at a 1 or 2 ohm load as that is usually standard on 1 channel amps. make sure to check your wiring and if your not sure about ohm loads just Google wiring for sub-woofer ohm loads such as 0.5 ohm, 1 ohm, 2 ohm or 4 ohm loads. also make sure your box is not sealed do to the fact they are siht and cant produce sound like a vented / ported enclosure keep the size as big as you can fit in your car or truck the bigger the better. i had one 8\'\' sony sub pounding like a 15\'\' sub real loud . Also MDF particle board is garbage it causes port noise and absorbs water

What's the best way to hook up 2 Hifonics hdl12d4 subwoofers to a mono amp


Ok, your post has two different models listed. Let's start with something you need to know about your amplifier. Is it one ohm or two ohm stable. This will make a difference. Also, whether your subs are single voicecoil (HFI12s4) or dual voice coil (HDI12d4).

Let's start with the easy scenario. Let's say your amp is two ohm stable and you have two single voice coil subs. It's simple. You go from the positive of the amp to the positive of both subs and the negative of the amp to the negative of both subs. This will provide a 2 ohm load to the amplifier, thus pulling all the power out of it.

Unfortunatley, if you have two dual voice coil subs, you won't be as efficient. You will only have the options of a 4 ohm load or a 1 ohm load.

This is where having a one ohm stable amp would come in handy. If the amp is one ohm stable, hook the positive of the amp to all 4 of the positives on the subs, and hook the negative of the amp to all 4 negatives of the subs. This produces a 1 ohm load.

WARNING!! If you have a 2 ohm stable amp DO NOT use the last wiring scenario. It will fry your amp.

Now, the last is a little trickier. This is for two dual 4 ohm subs. Follow closely. Hook the positive of the amp to one of the positives of each sub. (do the next step to both subs) Go from the negative of the voice coil that you hooked positive from the amp is hooked to, and hook that to the positive of the unused voice coil. Then go from the negative of that voice coil and hook to the negative of the amp. Make sure this is done on both subs. This will give you a 4 ohm load.

Hope this helps

I have a rockford fosgate 1001d and 2 audiopipe dvc 12s need 2 know how wire speakers


Check to determine if your sub woofers are DVC 4OHM or DVC 2OHM SOLUTION 1 If your sub woofers are DVC 4OHM then, from the positive (+) of the amplifier run your cable to the positive terminal of voice coil 1 on sub woofer 1 then continue to connect all the positive voice coils together on both sub woofers. Do the same for the negative from amplifier to all the negative voice coils of both the sub woofers. RECAP: all positives together on the positives and all the negatives together on the negatives. This will give you a 1 OHM load to the amplifier making it deliver all its power but will also run hot. So if you are living in a hot climate take care. SOLUTION 2: Connect the negative on voice coil 1 to the positive of voice coil 2 on sub woofer 1 Do the same for subwoofer 2 now you should have a free negative and a free positive on each of the sub woofers. connect the free positives together and follow through to the positive on the amplifier. do the same for the free negatives sending them to the amplifiers negative. This will give you a 4 OHM load to the amplifier. Not full power in this mode but the most stable working condition for your amplifier. SOLUTION 3 If your sub woofers are DVC 2 OHM then you only have one reasonable wiring solution. Connect like solution 2. This time because of the DVC 2 OHM sub woofers you would have a 2 OHM load to the amplifier. This is also a stable load for the amplifier and does not generate to much heat and still deliver over 50% to 70% of the amplifiers power. good luck and drop me a line if you still have doubts. dreamsystems

My alpine keeps shutting down when the volume is turned up past 20. Plus I have no sound coming out of my subs. I tried switching rca cables. And I sent my amp off thinking it was my amp. Their is a little...


so it turns off suddenly and then the next second it turns back on and starts playing

from that and personal expericance i belive that the radio system (radio and amp) is not reciving enough power

is this radio inside a car
if so what car

what i would do is attach bigger thicker wires to the positive and negative of the amplifier
direct from battery

positive of battery>>>> positive of amp
metal grounding point on car>>>>>> negative of amp
(do not use negative of battery use the metal of the car)

Loads


Hello ronnieyannon,

Yes. As long as the subs are paralleled, the final load is 2 ohms.

Hope this helps.

I just want to know how to bridge a amp


put a positive from the left sub in the positive slot then put the negative from the right sub and put it in the negative slot the take the other positive and negative and twist them together and cap them off.

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 :)

I have 2 kicker 07CVR124 12" dual voice coil with a 800 watt mono pioneer amp. How do I wire it correctly


I'm not sure what pinoeer amp you have. If I remember correctly some are 1 ohm stable. In this case you would be able to wire everything in parallel. Meaning, with the voice coil, wire the positive to positive, and the negative to negative. Then wire the subs together positive to positive, and negative to negative. This will give you the total impedence of 1 ohm. If it isn't 1 ohm stable the best you could do is 4 ohms. To do this you would need to wire the voice coils in series and the subs in parallel. Meaning, wire the negative to positive and the positive to negative. Then take the subs and connect the positive to positive and the negative to negative. I hope this isn't too confusing. If you need further assistance let me know. Good luck

How to


First of all, make sure your amp is bridgeable. There are a few ways to bridge subs. series: hook one wire from the negative on the left amp output (or whichever is labeled on amp for bridged)to left sub negative. left sub positive to right sub negative, then right sub positive to the amp positive output.(like a big loop through both speakers) parallel: both speakers get their own set of wires, both negatives go to the bridge negative terminal, and both positives go to the positive bridge terminal. Series-parallel: A combination of the two. say two speakers in series, and one hooked up alone, but all to the same amp outputs. Bridging your amp/speakers basically lowers the resistance of the circuit and makes more current flow, more power, louder, harder hit. In series, it also makes both speakers do exactly the same thing, instead of "stereo sound" or L/R differences. What you're probably looking to do is Bridge in parallel. That will drop the resistance of the circuit the lowest, allow the amp to put out the most amount of current to the speakers, and allow your bass to hit the hardest. If your amp only has one output, hook up the same way as above. Just see what resistance your amp is stable down to. If down to 1 ohm, no worries. if stable only to 2 or 4 ohms, you may want to bridge in series to be safe. That will cause the resistance to go up, and will not pull as much current through the amp. The whole time, just remember Bridgeing and higher current mean HEAT so watch your amp. I hope this helped.
