What is the model of subwoofer and what kind of amplifier are you using? Not very many amps can handle a 1 ohm load. Also, how many subs are you planning on using

What's the best way to hook up my jl audio 13" w 7 sub to my jl audio 1000/1 amp

the best way? hmm. i would start off with some wire. Keep in mind that you will need to separate the positive (usually red or has a stripe or marking on it) from the negative (Black usually is the common color for this wire) and hook the up according to your amps positive and negative hook ups / terminals following your sub-woofers terminals. then depending on your sub woofers Voice coils (Duel or single voice coils) yours are duel or quad coils but i\'m sure they are duel (2 of each positive and negative equaling a total of 4 posts on each sub-woofer). figure out your amps ohm load handling and does your amp run hot (1,2 or 4 ohm stable some are even less like 0.5 or lower) i would run at a 1 or 2 ohm load as that is usually standard on 1 channel amps. make sure to check your wiring and if your not sure about ohm loads just Google wiring for sub-woofer ohm loads such as 0.5 ohm, 1 ohm, 2 ohm or 4 ohm loads. also make sure your box is not sealed do to the fact they are siht and cant produce sound like a vented / ported enclosure keep the size as big as you can fit in your car or truck the bigger the better. i had one 8\'\' sony sub pounding like a 15\'\' sub real loud . Also MDF particle board is garbage it causes port noise and absorbs water

4 ohm and 8 ohm speakers

You can plug in higher ohm speakers , the higher the ohm the higher the resistance is, it is a danger when you plug lower ohm speakers into a higer ohm Amp , at a high volume that will cause them to blow , the center speaker would be fine to use a higer ohm speaker , your best choice is to buy a Active Subwoofer, which means the sub has it's own power supply , and u can blast the thing as much as u like , thn u can turn the bass down on all the other speaker's so u can play it louder , and have the sub turned up has high as u like , this is the best way to get great sound with high volume , buy a Active sub woofer , any active subwoofer is ok , a active sub woofer has its own volume and inputs on the speaker ,

I have a rockford fosgate 1001d and 2 audiopipe dvc 12s need 2 know how wire speakers

Check to determine if your sub woofers are DVC 4OHM or DVC 2OHM SOLUTION 1 If your sub woofers are DVC 4OHM then, from the positive (+) of the amplifier run your cable to the positive terminal of voice coil 1 on sub woofer 1 then continue to connect all the positive voice coils together on both sub woofers. Do the same for the negative from amplifier to all the negative voice coils of both the sub woofers. RECAP: all positives together on the positives and all the negatives together on the negatives. This will give you a 1 OHM load to the amplifier making it deliver all its power but will also run hot. So if you are living in a hot climate take care. SOLUTION 2: Connect the negative on voice coil 1 to the positive of voice coil 2 on sub woofer 1 Do the same for subwoofer 2 now you should have a free negative and a free positive on each of the sub woofers. connect the free positives together and follow through to the positive on the amplifier. do the same for the free negatives sending them to the amplifiers negative. This will give you a 4 OHM load to the amplifier. Not full power in this mode but the most stable working condition for your amplifier. SOLUTION 3 If your sub woofers are DVC 2 OHM then you only have one reasonable wiring solution. Connect like solution 2. This time because of the DVC 2 OHM sub woofers you would have a 2 OHM load to the amplifier. This is also a stable load for the amplifier and does not generate to much heat and still deliver over 50% to 70% of the amplifiers power. good luck and drop me a line if you still have doubts. dreamsystems

Need help wireing sub

Is the speaker a dual voice coil speaker? If so you can wire it up a couple of diferent ways, go to they have a woolfer wiring wizard that can show you the different ways to wire for 8 ohm.....4 ohm.....2 ohm....and 1 ohm...I would figure out how to get the most power out of the amp in mono mode, take that ohm load from there and see if you can wire your speaker to match it.

I cant sem to wire it to 4 ohms because the terminals are right next to each other and i have no clue which 1 is which voice coil?

test with a digital multimeter set to ohms. if you don't have one of those laying around grab a 9 volt battery and run wires from the 2 terminals on the battery to 2 of the terminals on the woofer. if the woofer pops out you are said to be "in phase" (even though it has more to do with polarity that phasing but regardless) which means the positive from the battery is on the positive of the woofer and the negative is to the negative. those 2 terminals on the woofer are a single coil and obviously the other 2 terminals are the 2nd coil. now depending on what impedance each coil is will determine how you have to wire it to be 4 ohms unless they are 4 ohm coils which means you just use one coil and it will be 4 ohms on that woofer.

Sub woofer wiring

If you have a 500a2 and two 4 ohm single voice coil speakers, you have only one option. Connect one speaker to each channel.
