I purchased my subs in a bandpass box. The whole thing was preassembled. It was about 5 years ago that I bought my system. I had it in my vehicle for about a year, then had it in storage for the...

Hi there,

Chances are these are 12" in size (measure the diameter of the speaker - from one side to the next).

Usually, if subs come with a bandpass box, the box would have been measured for the correct air space.

However, if you want to know how to design your own enclosure then I will direct you to this web page, which can give you some basic understanding:

Hope this helps...

What size amp needed with a sony explod player?

this bandpass enclosure is rated peak power at 1200 watts . what this means is that each subwoofer in the is peaked at 600watts to make 1200 watts . what your looking for is to power up the subs with rms continuous wattage . you need an amp that will put out 400 to 500 rms a channel to run this sub enclosure at 800 to 1000 watts rms to keep the speaker from blowing

audiopipe apf1801
71671968.jpg this amp will give you 1 channel @ 4 ohm x1 350 watts 1 channel @ 2 ohm x1 900 wats 1 channel @ 1 ohm x1 1800 watts you would have extra power for better subs with more power later but you get 900 watts which when connected right would mean 450 watts per sub be perfect for you . i sell this for $320.99 in my store can shipp any where in usa to contact me

Subwoofer rumbling noise

check all your supply wiring's specially the one that is connected directly to the positive terminal of your battery, it has to be of enough gauge to supply your amplifier's wattage, and it is has to be properly grounded to the body of your car.

Car subwoofer just past half volume cuts off the amp

Assuming there is no short, or lose ground wire somewhere inside the box, diodes( in the amp) are fine, you might be overheating it by not allowing it to get good ventilation. This can be a big deal on some low end Chinese amps. Or the speakers are blown , or your Resistors (in the amp) are bad, but for arguments sake.
Most people don't use the proper size and or conductivity types of wiring, for pushing high amperage Think about it like this, Watts (power) =.Amps (energy) x Voltage (pressure) Resistance or Ohm's (amount) determines how much Wattage will go in or out, Ohms = Volts x2 / Watts.
What gauge wire are you using on your setup?

Amplifier For Powering Sony Xplod xs-l121p5

Pump the brakes!
You need to know the RMS power rating of the sub you are powering.
Dont exceed the RMS power rating of the sub by more than 25%.
If you see a peak power rating on either the sub or the amp, ignor it, means nothing. Always compare RMS ratings.
Example: a Sony 12" Xplod sub, boasting 1200 watts, will only handle, 350 watts RMS, so the amp you choose to power the sub should be 350 watts RMS as well, and should not exceed more than 25% of the RMS power handling (487.5 watts).
Bottom line, know your RMS numbers, not Peak.

I have an Audiobahn A8000T amp and 2 12" Kicker CVR (DVC) Dual voice Coil. The Subwoofers are 2OHM a peice. What is the best way to hook this all up to run a 2 OHM load to my subs?

This is a link to Kicker for your CVR12 Subs...if you have the 2 ohm version (2 ohms per voice coil) and you have 2 speakers will need to wire EACH speakers voice coils in series to get 4 ohms from each speaker and then wire the 2 speakers in in....2 ohms in series with 2 ohms = 4 ohms....both speakers wired same way, then in Parallel with each other = 2 ohm load. Page 2 of this link gives examples of both series and parallel wiring of your speaker.
If you are still not sure as to my description of ' How To',
PLEASE respond and I will attempt to explain it EXACTLY via wiring directions.

Need amp

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would be safe to use an amplifier slightly lower than the maximum rating of the speaker. In this particular case, 350 watts or lower would be just about right for each. If you are wiring the 2 subs in parallel and powering them with a single channel amp, then a 700 watt bridged would also work.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

2 12" Hitron 600w subs in a BandPass box

Remember that driving a load with an underpowered amp will probably cause more problems than having a more powerful amp that is not running flat out. 200-300W amp would be ok, but I would suggest going for the biggest you can afford. If you crank up the volume on the smaller amp you will probably get a fair amount of distortion, which may actually damage the speakers. A larger amp will not give as much distortion for the same loudness/volume and give better control of the speakers for a tighter bass..
