this may be called clipping.......not enough power to the amp, too small of a power wire, or the speakers may be too small

I need to know the wiring of the orion 2100 hcca amp?

well power to 12 volt power terminal, negative to negative, and rcas to input side of rca terminals... then go to and to the subwoofer wiring option to figure out if you can wire your subs to a 1 ohm load and how to do it... then go from there...

I have a d5000 amp and its wired up to a 15.2 hcca orion sub when i turn it up high volume,it cuts out anyone know why

make sure you have the frequency cuts right. if ur giving the sub anything lower then 30hz (assuming ur using 15's) the amp will cut out to protect the woofers from overload

My Orion d-5000 amp which is wired to an Orion hcca 12.2 sub cuts out at high volumes , it's wired with 0 guage wires

Your speaker is a dual 2ohm sub. If you have both voice coils wired Parallel that will drop the ohm load to 1, which the amp can not handle. You need to wire the voice coils in series. Treat each voice coil as a speaker.

Orion hcca 250

i can make this relatively simple.
2 stages:
Stage (1) wiring the Sub inside the box;
Unscrew the SUB from the Box, (& undo the wires)
Connect both +Positive terminals on the SUB to the +Positive terminal on the inside of your BOX.
Connect both -Negative terminals on the SUB to the -Negative terminal on the inside of your Box,
Then screw the SUB back into the Box.
u Have just wired yr sub in parallel. any Amplifier will see it as 1woofer with 1OHMs resistance.

Stage (2) bridging your amp
(please check Amplifier instructions on which terminals to use)
generally you use "LEFT -Negative" and
"Right +Positive"
and connect to the corresponding terminals on the Sub Box.
Hope that helps someone.

China made against u.s. made orion products

of course they're horrible. The products China have come out with in the past and the present are always lower quality than American made goods.
