I also bought one and it came with no instructions either.

Should be pretty simple but if you want to control the On/Off of it by the head unit you will need to use a relay,

Look up how car amp units are setup to actuly understand the fundamentals of that
then find the model of the amp in the tube if ur wanting to do odd stuff
and ull be set takes lots of muilti searching
basicaly ur amp power has a neg and a feed always on supply then wats called sometimes a remote witch is just a feed to switch power on off the power feed terminals should be bigger then the switch 1
u can wire the remote and feed together and make feed switched but i do not reconmend wiring sos unit is always on also use setup thats rated for current dont want to set the thing on fire with melted wiring and car loams are hassle wen loam melts
now theres 2 types input 1 is hi input other is low input i hav no idea the techs of the idavidaul ideas but basicaly its for ohm matching to get to the basic nitty grity it matches the voltage output of ur sound to the input loading of amp
eg if ur head unit audio is rca output thats like low volume output then it go into 1 input
if its a direct feed off the speacker wiring thats made feed speakers then be other type input
if i do a good geusstamite is say hi input is rca type input sos low volume output of head unit goes to hi load or ohm input of amp witch is like 5k 10k 20k ohms at geuss
the low input be for specker output of headunit since it drives 1ohm to 8 ish ohm to load the head unit up properly

now bridging amps is basicaly like hooking bateries up in seires and paralell but its got to match the speackers and way u bridge has to match amp u cant do it willy nilly or ur blow amp or specker or get chopy sound
normaly the termanails are set that they just loop to the 1 next to the other and could for mono full watts have all termals looped and take feed at each end looping is + to - and wen u have specker there be a + and - free to hookup
if u have 4 chanel output and 2 speckers then u loop 2 chanels bla bla
these are dependnt on ur amp and speckers and wot not

thats basic idea but id go learnt it fully off google then try looking for info on ur setup afta then ull be alot more sused and onto it
learn how it is not how to do learn the why not the how

Can someone please show me how to wire my subs to amp.. i have a 2600 watt planet audio 2 channel amp (2 ohm stable) and my subs are soundstream tarantulas t4 12s 900/1800 watts total. they are 1 ohm subs...


for your subs and amp the best way would be for the speakers to be wired in series1ch (mono or bridged)to have a 4 ohm load to your amp stable at 2 ohms
see pic for wiring diagram for 2 1 ohm dvc subs wired in series.
you will need more than one speaker wire for wiring the subwoofers coils(positive & negative terminals) together
hope this helps :~)

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: http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp?Q=1&I=42#results


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.

I have 2 amps instalkled in my car one is sony 1200w 2 channel amp for speakers and one is solid audio f2500d for 3 subs my sound and every thing was good but suddenly from yesterday im having trouble when...


First disconnect the CD head unit from the sub amp and see if the other amp works. If yes, the problem is the wires to the amp, the amp itself, or the subs/sub wiring. If no, the problem is the head unit--probably an internal short.
If the other amp works with the sub amp disconnected, reconnect the sub amp to the head unit, but disconnect the sub wires from the amp. Try the CD player. If the amp goes to protect with no speaker wires attached, the amp is bad. If the amp is OK, the problem is the subs or sub wires. Hook the wires up to the amp again, but disconnect them from the speakers. Try the player again. If the amp goes to protect, the problem is the amp wiring. If not, the problem is the subs. Check the impedance of each sub using an ohmmeter to determine which amp is out of spec.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using Fixya.

Have 2 4+4ohm avi sl500 subs how do i wire it to this amp and what setings on this amp alpine mdr m1005 1000watt amp


using these subs will limit you to a 4 oh load to the amp witch will only let the amp produce half of it's power. the lowest ohm load that amp can handle is 2 ohm and the next lowest you can wire the subs is 1 ohm and that will over heat the amp and destroy it. so to answer your question first wire each sub like this diagram shows...
Wiring Option #1
1_4ohmdvc_2ohm.gif
then once both subs are wired this way you wire both positives from each sub to the positive side of the amps speakers terminals and wire each subs neg. to the amps neg speakers terminal. the wire is series parrelle and will present a 4 ohm load witch will be the safest to run with your amp.

Amp wire pushin to much base out of car speakers and not to subs


Umm.. subs are usually meant for bass. do you mean amp power wire? if you just want to be able to hear the mid's and highs better just turn the bass down either on the equalizer on your amp or on your cd player.

Hello zqueliz,

It's possible that the sub is blown, but it may be something else. You did not specify how the subs are wired to the amp, how many channels on the amp, or whether or not the CVR's are in separate enclosures. These specifics will affect how you isolate the problem.

1) Check all of the wiring: RCA's from head unit to amp, speaker wiring from amp to sub. Make sure there are no breaks in the insulation and that the wire does not come in contact with another wire or metal parts on the vehicle.
2) Remove the nonworking sub from the enclosure and check the wiring from sub to terminal inside. While you have the sub out, check the "braided" wires going from the sub terminals to the cone.
3) Reverse the wiring from the amp to the subs to see if the problem moves to the right sub. That will tell you the problem is not in the sub.
4) If the left sub still fails with the amp channels flipped, you find no wiring defects, and you can't see any physical damage, test the sub voice coil with a multimeter. Set the meter to read "ohms" on the lowest scale. The actual reading should be a little less than the rated impedance. If the subs are 4 ohm, the meter should read about 2-3 ohms. If the meter reads "0" (pegs) or if it reads "infinity" (no reading at all), the sub voice coil is bad.

Hope this helps.

Subwoofers pop then immediately produce no sound


Sounds like the two subs wired together might be too much of a load on the amp and it is shutting off. Try wiring the two subs in series. That will reduce the load on the amp but will conversely put out less power. Less is better than none though. In any case check your amp to see what the lowest ohm rating it can see, that ohm rating is where you want your subs and if faced with a choice of either going under (lower numerically) or over (higher numerically) GO OVER!-it is much safer.
Here's an article I wrote that can help explain how to wire the subs to the amp.

OHM LOADS, SUB WIRING, OHM RELATED POWER OUTPUT

SERIES SUBWOOFER WIRING
Wire the positive pole from one voice coil (using wire that is as thick or thicker than your wire from amp to sub) to the negative pole of the other voice coil (on the same sub). This will leave you with a positive pole from one voice coil and a negative pole from the other giving you the two leads that will be hooked up to the amplifier or other subs. When wiring in series, the ohms will go up numerically, and the load on the amp will go down. Almost all amplifiers power output will follow this rule, except some amps such as JL Audio's “Ohm matching” D Class amps.

PARALLEL SUBWOOFER WIRING
Wire the positive pole from one voice coil (using wire that is as thick or thicker than your wire from amp to sub) to the positive pole of the other voice coil (on the same sub). Then wire the negative to the negative in the same way. You can then wire to the amp or other subs. When wiring in parallel the ohms will go down numerically, and the load on the amp will go up. Almost all amplifiers power output will follow this rule, except some amps such as JL Audio's “Ohm matching” D Class amps.

MULTIPLE SUBS USING SERIES AND PARALLEL WIRING
In order to match your amplifiers ohm rating you can use parallel and series wiring together, just keep things even for power distribution and to avoid phase issues.
Example: I have two “Type X 12” subs” that have dual 2ohm voice coils and have to match my “Amplifier X” ohm rating of 2ohms mono. In this case, I would wire each subwoofer in series (giving me a 4ohm load), and then wire the two subs in parallel to get my 2ohm mono load. When wiring multiple subs just, treat each sub as a voice coil and wire accordingly.

POWER OUTPUT AND OHM LOADS
For example if “Amplifier X” can make 100watts@8ohms, it would make 200watts@4ohms and 400watts@2ohms. However with every drop in ohms the amplifier is put under more pressure. It starts to create a lot of heat, distortion figures begin to climb, damping rates drop, and some amps even throw power spikes when clipping. SO BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR AMPS RATING AND DO NOT EXCEED IT!

3 amps 2 subs sound system for car, need wiring help


As i read your problem i can recommend you that connecting each of the hifonics amp to each hifonics sub with the same specs by getting the specs in interfacing the two or you can simply look to the output of the amp and the input of the sub and find a suitable plug that fits to them.

In the case if you want to run each hamp to individually run each sub but sharing 3 farad capacitor: what i can suggest is that you connect in parallel one connecting wire of each input or ouput of the amp or sub. Its like connecting a connector from each of the input or output of the amp or sub to one leg of the capacitor, and connecting two wires to the other leg, one is being connected to the amp or sub and the other wire is connected to the other amp or sub.

In the case of putting a circuit breaker at the car battery: what i can suggest is that you find an appropriate circuit breaker that fits the specs of the car battery then connect it in series on the positive supply or read the specs of the circuit breaker before you connect it to the battery. Having a circuit breaker is like having a fuse but with special advantages in favor of the circuit breaker.

In the case of having power to the amps you can run one power wire to the amps by dividing the power wire into two, one connected to the amp and the other wire to the other amp. Then you can connect each amp and sub in series individually by connecting one wire b/w amp and sub. I hope i solved your problem
