If the output impedance of your Pyramid amp is approximately the same as the input impedance of your Kicker, it should work.

SOURCE: CAN PYRAMID PB-772 BE BRIDGED

i cant find a whole lot of information on that amp or any other older pyramid as they arent exactly the most popular amp but just applying what i know about amplifiers in my opinion i think the amp is more than likely only stable @ 4ohm when it is bridged and @ 2ohm in stereo (using both channels) so yes you should be more than likely able to bridge it because the impulse only came in 4 and 8 ohm voice coils and i dont think they made a dvc impulse so check the sub paperwork . if you dont have the paperwork look at the sub and check for it or get the model number and ill be able to tell you what the ohm rating is on it and remember if u decide to bridge it be carefull not to turn the gain up like it is the volume controll. it should typically be set under half way but you maybe ok going up to 3/4 but i am not sure how it will sound @ that level so if its not loud enough after that you should consider getting a slightly larger amp ( a good rule of thumb that i have found is that the subs rms specification should only be 2/3 of the totall rated rms output at the ohm load that the speakers or speaker are as this should allow u all the spl you want without really heating up your amp and if u ever buy new subwoofers you have more power left in the amps output capabilities because when u buy new subs it is usually to upgade in quality which usually requires more wattage and youll have it

sorry my answer is so long . if u have any problems pls feel free ask me
and again you should be very capable of bridging it just find out the ohm load for the impulses voice coil HOPEFULLY it is an 8 ohn because when bridging an amp it halves the ohm rating on the sub




sorry such a long answer but i just wanted to cover as much as i could in case you have any problems if u have wiring questions or want to see a wiring chart go to www.the12volt.com for all kinds of excellent information charts wiring wizards and here is the link to the subwoofer wiring wizard

A kicker 600.1 wired to a jl w7 10" sub? Will that work?


The kicker 600.1 provides 600 watts at 2 ohms and 300 watts at 4 ohms the 10" JL W7 has 2 1.5 ohm voice coils so you will have to wire them in series. Take about 1.5 feet of 14 gauge wire and connect the positive of one voice coil to the negative of the other then the positive and negative that are left go to the amp. Your impedance should be 3 ohms and that amp should work just fine.

So I just bought a kicker cx 300.1 mono block amp to run my 10 inch comp d 4 ohm 300 watt sub. I ran it parallel and it smells like the coils are burning. Help


That's only normal for the burn in period. Make sure you're not running it in 2 ohm by wiring the sub wrong. That amp is not really 2 ohm stable for a sustained period

I have a kicker 10 comp d dvc 4 ohm 600 watt. How do I run a obcon 2000i 2 channel amp to it


You can't. Total mismatch of power and impedance.

You need a mono amp that can push the RMS watts of the sub @ 2 ohm (sub wired parallel).

I have 2 10" Kicker Comp Subs


That amplifier is only rated at 150 watts at 4 ohms, or 300 watts at 2 ohms. Not a very strong amp to run 2 kicker comps. My guess is you have the subs wired wrong for your application. There are 2 types of subs, one is a dual 4 ohm, and one is a dual 2 ohm. Most people bridge these coils together and that cuts your ohms in half. For example. Lets say you have the 10cvr104 subs. Thats the dual 4 ohm sub. You wire the coils together in parallel, now its a 2 ohm sub. You have 2 of these subs running off of your amp, if they are hooked up in parallel, now you have a 1 ohm load, out of the amplifiers normal operation. Your amplifiers internals heat up really quick and there is a thermal overload, putting your amplifier into circuit protection mode. My suggestion for wiring your subs is as follows: for each speaker, wire the coils together like this- positive coil1 to negative coil 2 and negative coil 1 to positive coil 2. That is called running in series, and doubles your ohm load. Next, we need to wire the speakers together properly to hook up to your amplifier. For this, since the coils are hooked together, you only need to use one set of terminals from each sub. And take the positive from sub 1 and hook it to positive of amp. Take negative sub 1 and hook it to positive of sub 2. Take negative of sub 2 and hook it to negative of amp.

Can i use a 300 watt amp for 2, 800 watt woofers


yes, but you would not get the same performance as you would if you gave them the suggested power. I have found that it is always better to use a more powerful amp than your subs are rated for (as long as it is clean, high quality, low distortion power). I have had the best luck with name brand amps (kicker,rockford fosgate,phoenix gold,etc...). I hope this will be helpful to you.

Hi,just bought a 6x9 jbl gto937 speakers for my car,each speaker is 100watt rms and 300 max .Can anybody advice on what amplifier should i get for them?I know i can run them without any amp but think they...


Pyramid makes the PB series of amps. I have one that's driving a Sub.
The PB 700 puts out rms 60watts x 2 @ 2ohms, which gives you some "headroom" for your speakers. You don't want to over drive speakers with , for example, a 1000 watts for 100 watt speakers, because that's a good way to blow your speakers.
There are many brands and models of amps that will fit your speakers. Just make sure the amp will drive 2ohm speakers, since your jbl's are rated at 2ohm impedance.
You may want to consider adding a Sub woofer to your setup. A single Sub would fill in the low end very nicely. If you got a 4 channel amp, then two channels will drive your jbl's, and you can bridge the other two channels to drive the Sub. That would be a kick'n sound!
Just make sure the amp is bridgeable
For example, the Pyramid PB 1200 is a 4 channel, bridgeable amp. This particular amp will drive the 2ohm jbl's, but you would want a 4 or 8 ohm Sub connected to the bridged channels.
