If you have woofer in tight enclosure you might want to use a vented enclosure .This will lower speaker suspension displacement .Or if you already have speaker in vented box ,it also possible you have wrong volume box..If surround is just ungluing from basket rim .You can try using GORILLA glue to reglue to rim .If its tearing at cone then lower the volume.LOL

    do you have foam surrounds or rubber (butly)? ..Also is there a chance the one that rips is rubbing against somethiing like rear seat etcc.?

  • crispin melchor Dec 11, 2007

    if these three are all in same box and in parallel ..Im guessing the one that is tearing is the first one in line with speaker wire to amp..Why dont you upgrade to speakers that use a rubber or butly surround..They usually take a better beating than foam ..You can try to find a speaker repair shop in your area and they can try to put butyl rubber on speakers rather than buying the whole speakers

Are the subs single or dual voice coil? How many ohms are the subs? This stuff matters greatly

I own a mtx 1501d.Also own a 18


THE AMPLIFIER NEEDS A 1 OHM LOAD AND YOU HAVE THE RIGHT SPEAKER TO PROVIDE THIS LOAD. THE AMPLIFIERS TERMINAL STRIP PROVIDES YOU WITH 2 POSITIVES AND 2 NEGATIVES, BUT THEY ARE ONLY FOR CONVENIENCE WHEN WIRING 2 DRIVERS. ACTUALLY THE 2 POSITIVES ARE THE SAME CONNECTION INTERNALLY ON THE BOARD, AS WELL AS THE 2 NEGATIVES. THAT BEING SAID, THE SIMPLEST WAY TO CONNECT YOUR SPEAKER IS TO PARALLEL THE VOICECOILS IN THE BOX BY CONNECTING THE 2 POS. TOGETHER AND THE 2 NEG. TOGETHER THEN RUN THAT POS. AND NEG. OUT OF THE BOX AND SIMPLY CHOOSE EITHER OF THE 2 POS AND NEG. OF YOUR CHOICE AT THE AMP. IF YOU EVER HAVE TO ADD A SUB, THEN YOU WILL HAVE 2 MORE TERMINAL LEFT OVER ON THE AMP. TO CONNECT IT TO AT THAT TIME. BY ALL MEANS, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RUN EACH COIL SEPARATELY OUT OF THE BOX AND CONNECT THEM TO ALL 4 TERMINALS, THEN THIS IS FINE TOO, AS EITHER WAY, THERE WILL BE NO DIFFERENCE WHATSOEVER. LET ME KNOW IF I CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE....V

1501d,, What subs should i use/


I would stick with Kicker or MTX. The best place in my mind to get them is soncelectronix.com
Just try to mach the specs as close as possible. Make sure to look at the recommendations of the subs for the size of the box and the port volume.

Most power out of amp w/out blowing subs


you may only be able to get but so much out of the subs. If you turn the bass down a little so the that you dont drive the subs so hard you may get a little more wattage out of them

Although open shields on the head unit generally cause MTX amps to squeal, it can sometimes cause the symptoms you described. To check the shields, you will need a multimeter. The procedure is on the following page:

Testing for Open Shields on RCA Signal Cables

If the shileds are OK, we will have to check a few other things.

Mtx 1501D


if your power light is on then check your preamps (sub out from head-unit).Maybe you need to turn on that output thru head unit's audio menu.Also when using dual voice coils if you wire them out of phase there will be no output

Hi i have a mtx 1501 d


If it does it with no RCAs plugged in, the speakers or wiring need to be checked.

If the speakers and wiring are OK, the amp may have shorted output transistors.
