SOURCE: sony xplod 500w 4/3 channel

If the speaker is a 4 ohm DVC (two 4 ohm coils), you can't wire it to get a single 4 ohm load. Try connecting one coil to each of the two rear channels. It may not be as loud but the amp should operate without going into protection.

If the two 4 ohm coils are in parallel, the amp is driving a 2 ohm mono load. That's probably why it's shutting down.

SOURCE: Rockford Fosgate 800a2 To 2 SVC 2ohm subs

Ok.. Bridge the two sub into 4ohm than bridge to amp.


So. this how it goes.

sub1 + -
to      | |
sub2 - +
=      4ohm
       

           From Sub
                Two
            -          +  
            |           |
amp (L) - + (R)- +


This will use the full potiental of RF 800a2 amp. I believe it like 1153 watts max out.

SOURCE: How much would installing a headunit, amp, and subs usually cost?

hows it going so you need it to be installed or you can install this yourself? well the best bet fund to get stuff done cheap is t get the stuf you will need to do an install like a install wiring kit and tools and post a installer help on craigslist.org iin your local area would be the cheapest way or just go to your local audio stereo shop thanks again and i hoope this help have any more questions please feel free to contact me if you need a step by step install i can help you in that and save you big bucks thanks again. always forward jcbproducts

SOURCE: not a problem just a question

  • 100 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms
  • 200 watts RMS x 2 at 2 ohms
  • 400 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms in bridged mode
  • stereo or bridged mono output
  • 4-ohm stable in bridged mode
  • Tri-Way capable
  • requires 8-gauge power and ground leads — wiring and hardware not included with amplifier
  • 50-250 Hz high-pass/low-pass (12 dB/octave) crossovers
  • wired remote included for fingertip control of Punch Bass (0-18 dB boost at 45 Hz)
  • MOSFET power supply and output devices
  • MEHSA mounting technology increases the heat transfer from the MOSFET output devices to the heat sink, for higher power output, lower operating temperatures, and greater reliability
  • TOPAZ — noise-killing differential inputs that eliminate 80% of ground loop noise
  • Trans•ana circuitry keeps preamp voltages low and signal paths simple for outstanding audio quality
  • NOMAD — advanced protection circuitry for "intelligent" shutdown protection
  • speaker- and preamp-level inputs
  • 11-1/8"W x 2-3/8"H x 9-7/8"D


  • Wire your sub in bridged mode (4 ohm mono)
    + to + on amplifier
    - to - on amplifier
    (using bridging terminals)

    SOURCE: Sub Wiring

    Hello jtkpay,

    Rockford-Fosgate claims their latest V-power 1500bd is stable to 1 ohm, and I would think that your Oldschool would also be. The 2 wiring options for 3 subs with 2 ohm dvc would give you a 1.34 ohm load and a 3 ohm load. The 1.34 ohm option would mean more watts to the subs, but the amp will run hotter. The diagrams look like this:

    67e2576.gif

    c9227fe.gif
    Using just 2 of the Kickers, you can wire 3 different ways, with final impedances of 0.5 ohms, 2 ohms, or 8 ohms. You do not want the 0.5 ohm load. It's bad for the amp. You don't want the 8 ohm load. It doesn't allow the amp to produce as much power. So that leaves only the 2 ohm, with coils in series and subs in parallel. It looks like this:

    Hope this helps. If it does, please rate as "FixYa".

    How do I hook up my inside speakers and sub's to


    if setup 4 channel amp with low pass filter for the sub channel and other 2 channels for speakers with no filter, some amp you can use amp as 3 way if one or two subs, bridging output will give you more power for the sub. be aware that bridging 2x4ohm subs will give you 2 ohms and potentially damage the amp.

    Should i bridge it to run just one 10inch punch sub


    yep, assuming the sub has a total impedence of 4 ohm or higher.

    How do I hook up one sub to my rockford fosgate p3001 amp


    Hey i have looked over many rockford manuals,(i own a 300.1 my buddy owns a 325.1) and for there mono(.1) amps there hooked together on the inside so channel A+ and B + are cencted on the inside the amp. So you ither hook one 2ohm sub to channel A or you can hook 1 4ohm subs to channel A and 1 4ohm sub to channel B. There 2ohm stable so any lower will eventualy burn the amp out.

    Connect rockford fosgate amplifier & speaker together


    Assuming your P3 has a single voice coil (it will have only one place to plug your wires into) you will be running this in a bridged mode. You will take the left (+) coming off the amp and plug it into the (+) on the P3. Then take the right (+) from the amp and plug it into the (-) on the P3. This will make your amp push 500 watts to your sub. Now on the amp make sure your adjustments are as follows: Signal input switch is set to unbalanced for RCA input. Left Phase switch is set to 0. Right phase switch is set to 180. your X-card should be set to low pass. And adjust the gain for both R and L equally so it has equal power from both channels.

    Will my car handle a rockford fosgat 801s power load?


    Hello dreww1005,

    If your alternator and battery are in good condition, you probably don't need a capacitor. At maximum output, the 801S will need to draw a little over 30 amps at 12.8V. The specifications call for 8-gauge power and ground wiring and a 40A primary fuse. The Vibe's electrical system should be able to handle it OK.

    Hope this helps.

    I was given a kenwood kac742, what do i have to do to hook up 2 subs to it tom


    You need:
    1) 2 4-ohm subs
    2) Appropriate enclosure
    3) Amp wiring kit with RCA's

    Connect each sub to a separate channel and set both mode switches to "MONO" (center position). In 2-channel mode, this amp is only rated at 80 Watts RMS, so you need relatively small and efficient subs. I'd say nothing bigger than 8" or perhaps 10". Rockford-Fosgate P1S48 (8") and R1S410 (10") will work OK with 50-150 watts RMS. Some others will also.

    Sub hook ups


    There's a lot more factors involved than that.
    • Power capability of the subs
    • Type/size of the sub box
    • Allotted space in the vehicle for the sub box
    • Voice coil impedance of the subs versus the capability of the amp
    • Etc.
