Hello disciple_sco,

The 3v2-D4 Jl's have 4ohm voice coils. The 3v2-D2's have 2ohm voice coils. If you have the D4, you should run the voice coils in parallel, both positives and both negatives to the respective amp terminal. This will result in a 2ohm load to the amp. If you have the D2, I'd series the voice coils, jumper one positive to the other negative and connect the other positive and negative to the amp terminals. This will result in a 4ohm load to the amp.

Hope this helps.

If this woofer is a dual voice coil woofer and if you are running your amp bridged or in mono would suggest try wiring your woofer in series.But before Idid anything I would unhook the woofer from the amp and pop it with a battery to make sure your woofer is still connected.

I have a JL audio 12W3v2-d4 subwoofer which has two sets of terminals and i needto know how to wire them correctly as my old one only had one set of terminals . i bought it second hand and didnt get wiring...


Your amp is stable bridged mono at 2ohms, however, having dual 2ohm voice coils will drop the amp to 1ohm if parallel and will kill it. The cleanest possible way to run this amp and keep it cool with lots of headroom is to run the coice coils in series then run the amp in mono @ 4ohms. To do this, run from one voice coil to another, a jumper. connect positive from one voice coil to the neg of the other voice coil. Then connect the remaning positive on one voice coil and the neg from the other voice coil to your amp (positive left and negative right on the amp) If your amp has a switch for momo make sure it is on, some are automatic. Hope this helps

Who to wire JL audio 12w6 to its max


Hello shermalestuc,

The JL Audio 12w6 v2-D4 has dual 4 ohm voice coils that can be wired for either a final load to the amp of 2 ohms (parallel) or 8 ohms (series).

If your amp is 2 ohm stable, the best power solution for a single sub is to use the parallel configuration, both positives and both negatives together and then to the amp.

Is a 15 w3 d-4 better then a jl audio w3-d2


Hello,

All of the JL W3 subwoofers are essentially the same. The "d2" and "d4" suffix refers to the voice coil configuration. "d2" = dual two ohm coils, "d4" = dual four ohm coils. Depending on the number of subwoofers in your system and the amplifier(s) you are using to power them, one or the other of the configurations may be "better".

Generally, you want to have the load on your amp to have the lowest possible impedance consistent with the amps capability to operate properly with that load. It's normally referred to as "impedance matching". Greater power (watts) is produced, and louder sound, when the amp can deliver power at a lower impedance.

If your amp is only capable of supplying power at 4 ohms, you want to make sure that the configuration of your sub(s) represents a 4-ohm load. If the load is higher, say 8 ohms, then your amp can only deliver about half the power of which it is capable. It would be OK to run them a 8 ohms, but they would not be as loud. On the other hand, if the load was lower, say 2 ohms, your amplifier would soon overheat and go into protect mode.

So the trick is to first decide on how many subs you want. Then choose an amp/sub combination that "matches".

The DVC or dual voice coils just gives you more options in selecting and configuring. Say you want 2 subs and you are going with the 15w3 d-2. Your amp is the JL Audio G-MAX monoblock. The amp puts out 1200Wx1 Chan. at 2 ohms or 600Wx1 Chan. at 4 ohms. You would wire both of your subs voice coils in series making each sub 4 ohms, then wire the 2 subs in parallel to your amp making the final load 2 ohms, the best "match" for your amp.

How should I wire my 3 subs to the 500/1 amp???????


First of all how many ohm's are each subwoofer rated at . Are the subwoofers dual voice coil or single voice coil. Once I know that I can help you. I think the JL amp is not recommended below a 2ohm load.

This is a single channel amp that puts out about the same power at 4 Ohms or 2 Ohms. If you have two 4 Ohm single voice coil subs, then wire them parallel (both pos and both neg) to achieve 2 ohms. If you have two dual 4 Ohm voive coils, you want to do a series - parallel config to get to 4 Ohms (voice coils in series, then parallel the subs). Same with DVC 2 Ohm subs, series parallel = 2 Ohms. Do NOT go below two Ohms. You will blow the amp (actually, it'll do 1.5 Ohms). If you happen to have 2 Ohm single voice coil subs (not as likely) run them in series. Most amps will put out about twice as much power at 2 Ohms vs. 4, but this amp is designed to put out about the same. Hope this helps!

JL audio hook up problems!!??


your w7 13's are dual 1.5 Ohm, but according to JL website, are 2.41 Ohms when the coils are in series. Each 13 connceted to each amp with voice coils in series is your best bet. The amps are designed to put out the same amount of power from 1.5 to 4 Ohms. If you parallel the voice coils, you end up with .6 Ohms and the amp will go into protect mode. You'll be drawing a lot of current, so you may want to think about 1/0 guage power wire, upgrade the wire from the alternator to battery (usually only 8 guage) and think about multiple batteries.

Directed 1100d 2-channel amp


You will bridge the amp, and if the subs are all 8 ohm subs, you can probably wire them all in parallel, if they are all 4 ohm subs, you would wire then in series.
