Re: car amp

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,

What is briged mode

I think you mean bridged.Which it is when you have for example a 2 Channel amp but instead of hooking Ch1's + & - or Ch2's + & - to the terminals on your speaker you would instead hook a + from Ch1 then the - from Ch2 to your speaker. The purpose is to increase the rms wattage being delivered to the speaker. Be sure to check what ohm stable your amp is while bridged though cause if the load is to low the amp will not last long.

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.

Amp is on but wont work...please help!!

Hello lillj2323,

OK, you say that the amp won't get your RF Punch's to pound. You do not say if you get any output at all. So let's start from the beginning.

The KAC-X542 is a multichannel amp with 2 sets of stereo outputs, 1 set of stereo outputs and 1 bridged connection for sub(s), or 2 bridged connections for sub(s).

Make sure that both 30A fuses just to the left of the power connections are good.

Check that the "ID number" is set to "0". Make sure that you have RCA inputs to both channels A and B (leftmost pairs of jacks). Your subs should be connected to the 1st (+) and 3rd (-) of each set of output terminals.

Make sure that there are no broken off plugs or pins in the jack marked "H/U Terminal" or either of the 2 jacks marked "remote".

Check that the amp is set up for 2-channel bridged. The 6 switches below the filter controls and the filter pots should initially be set:
1 - Middle position (off)
2 - Up position (on)
3 - Down position (off)
4 - Up position (mono)
5 - Down position (off)
6 - Up position (mono)
The pots should be set approximately:
LPF - minimum
HPF - maximum
Input Sensitivity - match your head unit - probably between 1 - 3
HPF - maximum
Input Sensitivity - match your head unit - probably between 1 - 3
After you get the speakers working, the LPF, HPF and Input Sensitivity can be tweaked for best sound and lowest distortion.

Hope this helps.

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.

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 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.

Kenwood ps 150

With your multimeter set to DC volts and the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp, touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals as the amp shuts down. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is dropping too low.

If the voltage is not dropping too low, you may have a defective speaker or a short in the wiring. Check the resistance of each individual voice coil to make sure all are near the rated impedance.

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.
