The plus is postive usually red and the minus is negative usually black. make sure you dont mix them up when you are connecting them to the acutal speaker or you will blow it and it would be useless then.

Hooking up a awes12p 1100 watt subwoofer do u hook positive to positive negative to negative on the speaker

Hello there,
It depends on How many amplifiers you are using and whether the amp is runniong in 'bridged' mode (turns a stereo in to a double power mono. Then after that, it depends on what the RESISTANCE is that the amp will drive. because these Speakers have 2 coils of 4 ohms EACH. SO... (you can look this up if it is any easier.) For a 2 ohm speaker, you wire plus to plus and neg to neg and for 8 ohms you wire plus to minus and then amp neg and plus to othjer terminals.
I KNOW it sounds complicated because electronics is !!!! ...SO here is a page showing HOW to wire them you. Just click on the picture for your Amplifiers set up. and connct as shown.

It's ALL about the AMPLIFIER !!!!! and what it is 'driving' You must match speaker resistance / impedance to amplifier to get maximum power transfer.

You need to trace the wiring back to your amplifier, Whatever is on the positive (red) on the amp you should use on the speakers.

Yes does anybody know how to run speaker wires from a two channel 750watt amp to two 12" kicker comp 8ohm subwoofer's

Is this a trick question? An amp only has speaker outputs (plus and minus) and the speakers have corresponding inputs. Each channel would probably drive one sub.

According to the manual for your amplifier would be a good start. It's just a passive sub. Plus to plus, minus to minus.

I have a Alpine MRP-M350 amp and then I have 2 10 Kicker Freair F10A Subwoofers. What's the best set up for this combo?

From the plus(+) of the speaker output on the amplifier run a cable to the plus(+) on the voice coil of the first subwoofer then follow thru with the same cable to the plus(+) of the other subwoofer.
From the minus(-) of the speaker output on the amplifier, run a cale to the minus(-) of the first subwoofer then follow thru with the same cable to the minus(-) of the other subwoofer.
This will make your amplifier run @ 2OHMS and provide you with 350 Watt RMS which will work fine even if you run your subwooffers free air(without a box))
hope this helps

How to identify positive and negative on a JBL 2408 diaphram

an easy way to identify polarity is with a 9 volt battery --connect the plus and the minus of the battery to the speaker terminals ---if the woofer pushes out--then the plus of the battery is connected to the plus of the speaker --if the woofer goes in then the plus of the battery is connected to the minus of the speaker and then mark it with a black dot on the speaker to indicate its the negative for the speaker and now you know which is plus and which is ground--enjoy

How 2 bridge tha opti drive 1222d 12inch subs 2 the opti 600x2hc

You can check Both Crutchfield's learning center on subwoofer wiring diagrams and with their wiring diagrams. The crutchfield setup will be more informative for this type of problem. Just go one of the + to one of the - on each sub then wire the other plus's together between the subs as well as the minuses like between the subs and use the open plus and minus that u didn't just bridge. Then there should be just 2 wires a plus and a minus to the amp. Then follow the amp bridge wiring which should be found right above the speaker terminals it will be left plus to right minus or the other way around

Sony AMP/Subwoofer Problem

It is probably the tweeter, inside the Sub. it's the small ceramic disk between the cone magnet, and the speaker. id this thing is cracked or broken, this will cause the problem. if this is not it, then it is a problem with something in the wiring, and the only way to rectify it is to buy a new sub. Sorry due :(
