Re: wiring a sub and amp to a chrysler 300c factory radio

Most cars come with a standard amp, are you trying to replace the standard amp with a new one? If so then first look for any universal harnesses that will plug directly into the car you have and then into the amp you have. If you can't find any, you will have to modify yourself. You will be looking for the inputs/ to outputs. You also will need pwr and rem. This is a constant 12v and a regulated 12v.

I have 2 12" Pioneer TS-W3003D4 subs and I wanted to know can a Pioneer GM-D8500M run them?

pretty much any amplifier can run any sub, so the question is not weather or not the amp can run them, it is how well the amp can run them. Those Pioneer subs are dual VC models and are rated at 600 watts RMS. You have two, so that would be about 1200 watts of RMS power you will need in order to power the subs correctly and to optimum efficiency. The amplifier model you have is rated at 600 watts RMS for a single channel at the lowest stable impendence. That power coming from the amp will be split two ways between the subs and divide the power to each speaker. So each speaker will be receiving 300 watts of power. So in short yes, your amp will power those subs, but they will only be operating at half their rated power. Your amp will be running at maximum power so it might get a little warm after a while. make sure you wire it correctly and keep the amp well ventilated if you decide to push it that hard. if you need help on how to wire them search the web for wiring options by typing into Google " how to wire two dual voice coil subs into amp". There you will find plenty of illustrations to help you decide.

I have a kicker 10 comp d dvc 4 ohm 600 watt. How do I run a obcon 2000i 2 channel amp to it

You can't. Total mismatch of power and impedance.

You need a mono amp that can push the RMS watts of the sub @ 2 ohm (sub wired parallel).

I have a orion xtr 2150 and a hcca 10.4 what is the best way to wire this combo?

Hello. Quick answer...bad sub and amp combo due to fact that your sub needs a lot more power than this amp can produce (I'll explain later). But here is how you can do it: You can wire this dual 4 ohm sub in parallel or series. Parallel wiring would be to wire two the positive terminals on the sub to each other and wire two the negative terminals on the sub to each other. Thus wiring down the sub to 2 ohm. This what the amp would see. Series wiring would be to wire the positive and negative terminals on the same side of the sub to each other. Then wire the positive and negative terminals on the other side to the amp. Thus wiring the sub to 8 ohm. This what the amp would see. Illustrations can be found here:

Your sub specs are 1500 watts rms (how many watts your sub needs to operate efficiently or its minimum requirement. It has the a peak wattage at 3000 watts that it can accept in short duration. Your amp can only produce 300 to 600 watts at 2 or 4 ohm respectively. So you would be greatly under powering the sub which would produce a weak unfulfilled sound. You need an amp that produces a true 1200 to 1800 watts rms. There is a great selection out there.

Hi need some help instaling audio system on my bmw e39 525tds,got fuel shockwave 800 watt 3 oms subwoofer,2 JBL gto936e speakers and 2 sony tweeters and toxic tx-600 amp,can you tell me what wiring i need...

Walmart or a Specialty Audio Shop would carry a basic wiring kit for your job at task. As for the additional amp, thats your personal preference. If the Toxic Tx-600 AMP is a 600w amp, then I would say that is decent unless you're looking to get tickets for sound violations.. if you live in a city.

Can i connect the amplifier and subwoofer to the built ford fiesta radio

If your amp has rca jack inputs only you will need in-line filters to reduce the stock stereo speaker outputs down to less than 3 watts. If your amp has high power inputs you can use those. If your amp does not have a built-in crossover then you will need to install a low-pass crossover or filter before the amp so the only the bass comes thru or the sub woofer will have major distortion. Another problem is the amplifier needs a turn-on signal for the blue wire and most factory radios do not have one. That means you will have to tie that wire into the switched 12v wire from the vehicle so the amp comes on when the key is switched on. It can be done be done but I don't think you will be very impressed with the sub due to most factory stereos have a limited bass range. Most aftermarket head units have built-in crossovers and sub outputs. They also produce much better sound than the factory unit. So in other words yes you can.

Need help finding an amp for Subs

First for finding the amp I would go to Ebay, there are a lot to choose from there. A one channel amp would be the best being that it is made to drive subs. If each sub is 4ohms and you wire them in parallel (positive to positive-negative to negitive) you'll get a 2ohm mono load. So the amp you buy should be rated at about 600 watts RMS @ 2ohms to match the subs. You can however go with an amp that has a lower or higher rating and be fine. Just try to get one that is close to what you need. My recommendation would be a JL Audio 500/1 sub amp. (Ebay has some on sale now) The amp has a feature called ohm matching making it very easy to use with almost any setup. It also has subsonic filters and many other features so check it out.

that subwoofer has dual 4ohm voice coils, if your amp can handle 2 ohms, you would put a wire from the positive (+) on the amp to the positive on both connectors on the sub, then hook the negative (-) on the amp to the negative on both the sub connectors that will be a 2 ohm load on your amp make sure your amp at 2 ohms is not more than 600 watts RMS or 1200 max.
