SOURCE: JBL Sub Amp Wiring Please

it seems rather redundant to bridge a mono amp. Unless the instruction manual states otherwise, i would assume that one speaker output is identical to the other (ran in parallel, like an A or B speaker, not like Left or Right), and you would present the amp with a two ohm load by wiring one speaker to each output. Bridging it may or may not work, but, again, it just seems redundant.

SOURCE: Can i kook up 4ohm dvc sub to a kac-x810d amp?

No, the sub is dual 4ohms...meaning if you parallel the positive speaker terminals and the negative speaker terminals you will have a 2ohm sub. Conversely, if you series the pos and neg you will have an 8ohm sub. if you wirte to just one set of terminals on the sub you will have a 4ohm sub.

SOURCE: SUB WOLFER WIRING

im assuming you have 2 subs that are DVC? if thats the case, wire from the positive on the amp to the positive voice coil 1 on sub 1 to the positive on voice coil 1 on sub 2. then do the same with the negative sides. then on the second voice coil of sub 1, connect a wire from positive to negative. do the same for sub 2.

SOURCE: got a 12"kicker L74ohm sub and sony xm-D9001GTR mono amp

Hello juan_penaloz,

The Kicker L7 has an RMS power range of from 50-750 watts and a maximum power handling capability of 1,500 watts so your Sony amp will power it OK. A more powerful monoblock like the Alpine MRP-M1000 or the Kicker 08ZX750.1 would provide even more power and could operate safely at 2ohms.

You have the voice coils wired properly for the Sony amp. It's OK to have the sub impedance higher, but you definitely do not want it lower than the 4ohms the amp is rated at in bridged mode.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2 ohm dvc and monoblock sub amp

Yes. When you run two-two ohm subs to a monoblock amp its on the same channel meaning there ran parallel, and that makes it one ohm and most mono-blocks won't read one ohm. Are you popping fuses in the amp?

How do I wire up my 4subs in bridged to my peace 2600


Hi,

Please state the subs impedance, but assuming 4 subs with 8Ohm Voice Coil you CAN'T run them in parallel in Bridge Mono because this amp's minimum impedance is 4Ohm in bridge and 2Ohm stereo, maybe a series/parallel connection work, but what's the advantage to run them in Bridge mode? This amp delivers 900W per channel at 4Ohm, you can run a pair paralleled for each channel in a safe way and without the high-risk of your amp being destroyed, besides, amp power at 4Ohm Bridged is NOT recommended for continuous use, let me know your results...

I have 1 audio bahn eternal series awes15p 15inch subwoofer.I'm having problems hooking it in my vehicle,I don't have the wiring manual.I would appreciate if you can tell me or give me a...


There are some things to think about when you install this.

1. Is the sub a dual or single voice coil?
2. What ohms are the voice coils?
3. Is your amp 2 channel or mono?
4. What are the ohms loads allowed by your amp?

I am going to assume your sub is dual 4 ohm and you want to get as much power out of your amp as you can. I am also assuming the amp is a mono channel amp. (if it's a two channel amp, you can bridge the channels)

Go from the positive of your amp and wire to both positives of the voice coils. Then go from the negative of the amp to the negative of both voice coils. You will have 2 sets of wires to your sub. This is called a parallel set up. This drops the load of one dual 4ohm sub to a 2 ohm load. The lower the resisitance, the more power is able to flow from your amp, giving your more sound. Make sure your amp is 2 ohm stable.

Hope this helps

Can i power 2 12 subs a rockford punch z and a xplode with this amp i found all this **** in my garage and i need to know if it will power all this


First of all. Using two different kinds of sub woofers, is not an option, as these two sub woofers have different specifications and you should never mix sub woofers. Now the better choice from the 2, would probably be the Rockford. (cant be sure without knowing the models, power handling is also a factor in how well either of the sub woofers will play, but Rockford as a rule makes better sub woofers than Sony does) In my opinion, both the sub woofers deserve a better amplifier than what Boss has to offer. However to connect either of these sub woofers, you would need to determine how many voice coils it has and how many OHM the voice coil/s are. If it is a DVC (dual voice coil) and each voice coil is 4 OHM or 2 OHM, then you can connect one voice coil to one channel of the amplifier and the other voice coil to the other channel of the amplifier. If it is a DVC 2OHM you can also connect it wired in Series/Series to give a 4OHM load and should be connected to the BRIDGE dedicated speaker outputs of your amplifier. If it is a SVC (single voice coil) and it is 4 OHM, then you can connect the sub woofer to the designated speaker outputs of your amplifier that states BRIDGE. DO NOT run the amplifier in BRIDGE mode at 2 OHM as this will probably damage the amplifier. dreamsystems

How do I hook up one sub to my rockford fosgate p3001 amp


Hey i have looked over many rockford manuals,(i own a 300.1 my buddy owns a 325.1) and for there mono(.1) amps there hooked together on the inside so channel A+ and B + are cencted on the inside the amp. So you ither hook one 2ohm sub to channel A or you can hook 1 4ohm subs to channel A and 1 4ohm sub to channel B. There 2ohm stable so any lower will eventualy burn the amp out.

How do i wire 2 4ohm single coil subs to a 2 channel 6ohm load?


If you can setup the Amp as a Mono Amp this will work for you very well unless the Amp needs a 12ω Load when setup for Mono Operations. You will want to hook the Two Subs in Series so that the Amp will see 1 8ω load. This means you will hook a wire to the Positive pole of one Sub and hook the Negative Pole to the Positive Pole of the Second Sub and hook the Negative Pole to the Amp's Negative pole. This will reduce the overall output but will end up having better reliability of the Sub since each sub will only see ½ the overall output of the Amp and you will still get the full output of the Amp.

How do i bridge 2-4ohm dvc's to a mono block


If you have a DVC 4ohm speaker, and you are using both voice coils, the amp is seeing a 2ohm load.
If you bridge the amp, you CAN run both subs as long as the amp is Two Ohms Stable.
Wire each subs voice coils in parallel.(Positive to positve, neg to neg.) (2ohms) each.
Then wire the two subs in series.(Neg from amp to neg of sub one, pos of sub one to neg of sub two. then pos of sub two to pos of amp.

If it sounds too hard, leave it as you are already running the amp at two ohms.

only using one of the channels for audio and having the rest of the amp wired up as normal should work fine. for example just use the right channel and leave the left unwired.

Help???


It's not really made to run a dual 2ohm sub. What you can do though is wire the sub like this:

we'll call you subs voice coil A and B. Wire it like this A's(+) to (+) on amp; then A's (-) to B's (+), then B's (-) to (-) on the amp. This is known as series / parallel wiring it will effectively make your amp see a 4ohm mono load.

What brand and model of amp do you have?

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.
