If you wire the subs in parallel you would achieve 2 ohms which would theritically double your rms, sadly this isn't the case what with wire resistance and such you might get around 270 rms still not that bad. to wire in parellel you run a positive off the amp to the positive on one sub then run a wire from the first subs negative to the second subs positive the run from the second subs negative to the amps negative and bam 2 ohms but be warned this will put more stress on your amp and cause it to heat up faster. peace bro and best of luck

I have a 8 0 4 phonix gold amp and two 12s i blew the 12s and i bought some but they are 4 ohm how should i wire them?

You will have to wire each sub to an individual channel. you cannot bridge the amp, because it is not stable at 2 ohms. You could bridge it if you wire the subs in series, but you will get more power by committing each sub to an individual channel.

Why does the kenwood kac-9103d has two sets of terminals if its a one channel amp so how do i hook up a dual 12 phoniex gold 1200 watt sub to it

Hello damasogrizzl,

The 2 sets of terminals are connected internally. Having 2 sets just makes it more convenient when wiring multiple subs. The amp is rated for 900 watts RMS into a 2 ohm load. The specs claim that it is stable at 1 ohm but does not give a power rating.

The Radial SD competition series from Phoenix Gold are rated to handle up to 600 watts RMS. If you have the model RSdC124 with dual 4 ohm voice coils, it would be best to wire the voice coils in parallel for a 2 ohm load and connect the sub to one set of terminals on the amp. If your sub is the model RSdC122 with dual 2 ohm voice coils, you should wire the voice coils is series for a 4 ohm load and connect the sug to one set of terminals on the amp. Wiring the voice coils in parallel will result in a 1 ohm load. And, while the amp may be stable at 1 ohm, the sub will be seriously overpowered.

Hope this helps.

Can i hook up a powered 12'sub to a Pheonix Gold xs2500 amp without blowing the speaker

First I hope you remove the speaker wires from the speaker that come from the built in amplifire. You cannot hook the powered sub to the amp without doing that first. Then all you need to do is run speaker wire from the sub out of the box to the amp. In no way can you hook up any other part of the powered sub, but the sub itself, to the amp. If you know the wattage of the sub and the ohms then wire it to the amp correctly. Your phoenix amp will put out 125 watts x 2 at 4 ohms and 250 watts x 2 at 2 ohms and 500 watts x 1 at 4 ohms bridged. Remember, only the sub itself in the sub enclosure can be connected to the amp. Hope this helped you. Let me know if you need more help.

I have a PHOENIX GOLD RYVAL V1502 amplifier and trying to hook it up at 2 ohms as it describes it can be 450watts x2 at 2 ohms running wires from bridged positive and negative to the first sub then two...

Hello mgonzalez390,

It sounds like the amp/subs impedance is not matched. According to the published specifications for the V1502 amp, it is only stable in bridged mode down to 4ohms, not 2ohms. You need to get the final impedance that the amp sees up to at least 4ohms or it will continue to shut down and eventually fail completely.

If your subs are dual voice coil and can be rewired so that each sub has an impedance of 8ohms, then you can safely parallel them to the amp like you have described. If they are single 4ohm voice coils, then you have 2 choices. Connect one sub to each channel or if you want to bridge the channels, then wire the subs in series, not in parallel. Wire the positive bridged terminal from the amp to the first sub positive, connect a jumper from the negative of that sub to positive on the other sub, and then the negative from that sub back to the negative bridged terminal on the amp. This wiring results in an 8ohm load to the amp and it should work OK without shutting down. But the power to each sub will actually be less than if you wire them separately to each channel.

Hope this helps.

2 ohm sub and 4 ohm sub onto a 2 ohm amp

I presume you are talking about wiring one sub into each out put if so sure you can, but the 2 ohm sub will see more power & it will be louder. If you are wiring them in paralell to one output the load will be too low (1.33 ohms)& could blow your amp ! If you wire them in series to one output you will get a 6om load which will be fine also but with less volume.

How can i get a 2ohm load outta 2 4ohm dvc subs can you show me how to wire the amp as well it says on the amp its 2ohm stable

A normal wiring setup to produce a 4-ohm load is what you usually see - each speaker is wired to one channel of the amp. This is series wiring. To get a 2-ohm load, you need to wire in parallel. Here's how:

Take sub A and wire the positive terminal to the positive terminal of channel 1 on the amp. Wire the negative terminal of sub A to the negative terminal of channel 2 on the amp. For sub B, it's the opposite - positive terminal of sub B to the positive terminal of channel 2, and the negative to the negative terminal of channel 1. That's parallel wiring, and will produce the 2-ohm loading (and subsequent increase in output) that you're seeking.

Pioneer prsx720 wiring question

If the subs are dual 4 ohm voice coils, you could hook the DVC's of each sub in parallel ("+"'s together, "-"'s together) making each sub essentially 2 ohms. Then connect one sub to each channel of the amps. This will put about 200W on each sub.
