If you are talking about speaker terminals i would have to know the model you are referring to. take a look at where the speakers hook up, you should have +-+- if it is bridgeable it will usually have markings below or above those that only show 1 + and 1 - ... connect your positive to the single specified and negative to the other specified... you may or may not be able to bridge it with a wire, without the amp model, i can not say for sure...

if you are talking about actual power connections, then yes you can bridge them, i have an old amp here that has 1 remote, 2 positives and a large negative.. i bridged the positives using 6 gauge wire and used a 2 gauge for the negative...

hope this helps,

With a kenwood amp 1000watt 170rms x 2 ,how should i really wire these up!


You haven't supplied any model #s so its impossible to say - but Kenwoods don't normally like 2 ohm mono loads.

You're going to have to either use one channel @ 2 ohm... or use each subwoofer per channel on the amp.

For a 2 Ohm mono load - wire all positives and all negatives from each sub to the amplifier's respective (bridged) terminals.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating and POSITIVE TESTIMONIAL is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

I need help installing a 4 Channel Power Acoustik Amplifier to Two Pioneer Subwoofers. I hooked up the power wire to the positive battery terminal in the engine compartment. I then cut the power wire and...


You are doing right on what you described. I really like to work with a clearly described what involved in an issue.

Now we have to use a Voltmeter to check if there is power to the amplifier. If there is power to the amplifier terminal, then the problem is at the amplifier, not the connection. Let check it out:

1- Turn on your Kenwood radio, make sure to hear sound from your regular speakers.
2- Turn remote control knob to the mid level between min and max.
3- Measure the blue wire where you spliced to ground to see if you have 12V, if it is not then the problem is right there.
4- Measure the Red wire power from the Amplifier to ground ( the bolt that you connect the negative power to see if there is 12V, if not trace back to the Fuse that you inserted between the positive terminal of the battery and the wire going through the firewall to correct it.
5- If you have 12V at step 3 and 4, then you have a defect unit, return it to the manufacturer for a replacement.

It has an A and B channel for spkrs and i have one spkr bridged. do i split the neg to side a and pos to side b or just use one of the channels?


Could you elaborate on how the speaker is bridged?

I think you want to hook up a single speaker to a stereo speaker output.

In this case, you would strap (bridge?) the right and left speaker terminals by running a short wire from A right negative to A left negative. Then strap A right positive to A left positive -- this will give you mono output on either of the right or left speaker terminals -- connect your speaker to either one of these.

Do you know what the ohm rating is for the speaker outs on the amp and also the speaker itself?

Want to bridge my subs I have a kenwood kac-719


from what i have read about your amp, it is already a mono amp, and rated for 2 ohm's, so all you have to do is wire the subs in parallel (both positives together to positive and both negatives together to negative) or series/parallel if you have dual voice coils (both positive and both negative paired on each sub, then positive from amp to positive on one sub; negative on that sub to positive on next sub; then negative on sub to negative on amp) Note though, with two dual voice coil subs, you can have a 1 ohm load with the first set up, which can damage your amp. Let me know if this helps :)

To bridge a Kenwood KAC-9102D


Hello laurogleal,

The Kenwood KAC-9102D is a mono amp. There is no bridging. Having two sets of terminals is just a more convenient way of connecting two subwoofers. The amp is stable down to 2 ohms impedance, so it is safe to run 2 4 ohm loads in parallel.

Hope this helps.

KAC-9104D output terminals


ok i have the same amp and 1 2ohm dvc sub and was woundering the same thing but from futher research and askin sum xsperts. What i found out is that it is only one channel and even tho there are 2 (+) and 2(-) they actually connect inside the amp makein it one . so if u wanted to wire sumthing parralel u wouldnt have to hook wires from one coil to the other on the speaker , u can just hook it up to the amp. so basically both +'s and negatives on the amp are actually one within it so all the power if you only use one set of them and if u wanna add more subs its just easier to add to the amp by using the xtras .

How to wire a kenwood kdc d300


All components on your Amplifier should be labled. Ground Will go to any ground on your Vehicle Ex. A bolt under your trunk floor cover. Power has to be ran from your positive terminal onto your batter and throught the interior of your car to your amps 12v +. The MEMORY TERMINAL IS NEEDED FOR FUNCION! It will be between Ground and POWER or NEXT TO POWER.. This has to be ran to your cd players BLUE MEMORY wire or you can bypass it directly to the POWER, WARNING!!! if you use the bypass method, put a switch that you can pick up from any autozone or such between the two points to shut off the amp, other wise it will run constatly and kill your battery. The two RCA's have to be plugged into the back of your cd player and ran back to your amp and plugged into the Primary Slot (red-white) and finnaly the +.- speaker wires need to be ran to your subwoofers. Once all conected pop in a cd, adjust your cd players bass settings and also adjust your lows, mids, and highs on the amp to fine tune your speakers. IF you are looking to maximize your speaker wattage, you can use the bridge teqnuiqe. But beware you are going to doubble the ammount of power into each speaker. Take both positives, or if only one speaker just the single possitive, and place it into the Right SPEAKER insert on the Amp, and take both negitives and place it into the LEFT SPEAKER insert, and run the wires like normal to each speaker, 1 wire per - one wire per positive, in doing so both speakers run using maximized power usage

Hi monmax,
I hope you are aware that in bridged mode your amp will become monaural (single channel, double power). If you still wish to bridge it:
Switch of power.
Set mode switch behind amp to "bridge" position.
Connect speaker positive to CH1+ve terminal of amp output and connect speaker negative to CH2 +ve terminal.
Be aware that now, in bridged mode your amps output power delivery is 1100 watts for a 4 ohm speaker and 900 watts for an 8 ohm speaker. Make sure your speaker can handle that.
Peace
Jango.

How to install this amp properly?


The amp is a mono amp with only one output channel so it cannot be bridged. You'll use one positive and one negative per speaker. The positive speaker terminals are connected together and the negative speaker terminals are connected together so it doesn't matter which you use for the individual speakers.

Amp Problems


You are probably presenting too low an impedance load to the amplifier. In bridged mode the amp must be connected to a minimum 4-ohm load. If your subwoofer is a dual voice coil type with 4-ohm voice coils, you cannot wire the voice coils in parallel and connect it to the bridged amplifier. If you have a sub with dual 2-ohm voice coils, you can wire the voice coils in series and connect it to the amplifier in bridged mode. To connect voice coils in series: Connect a wire from the negative terminal of one coil to the positive terminal on the other coil. Connect the unused positive and negative terminals to the amplifier's output.
