Hello moore_broder,

Your MTX 7801 is stable at 1 ohm, but you cannot wire a pair of DVC 2 ohm subs to that impedance. They can only be wired to 1/2 ohm which is too low or to 2 ohms.

Series the voice coils and parallel the subs. On each sub, jumper Black to Red/White Dot, then run both red's (positive) and both black/white dot's (negative) to your amp terminals.

The diagram is here.

Hope this helps.

I have 2 different subs in one box, a 12" MTX thunder and a 12" Kicker CVR. the kicker is a dual voice coil while the MTX I dont believe is. Can I use one amp for this set up? And how would it be wired?


im guessing both speakers are 4 ohms ..mtx 4ohms and kicker dual 4ohms..now if your amp can go down to 1 ohm wiring the kicker dual coils in parallel (2ohms) and the mtx connected together (4ohms) should leave you with a final impedance between 1 and 2 ohms ...i suggest you use one or get another

Two questions. 1) can my amplifier over-power this sub; kicker L7 15 inch dual voice coil 1,000 watts RMS wired for 2 ohms? 2) is my amp too small for this sub-woofer? thank you for your time.


No, your not over powering your L7, your underpowering your subwoofer.
Your Kenwood is
500W x 1 at 4ohms [20-200kHz 0.5% THD]
900W x 1 at 2ohms [100Hz 1.1% THD]
Your L7 is:
Max Rec Amplifier Power (WATTS PEAK/RMS)* 2000/1000But its ok for your subwoofer, alteast your not giving it to much stress. But personaly, get another mono amplifier that would match your subwoofers rating.

Can you bridge 2 4 ohm kicker speakers to a mtx thunder 7801 amp?


Ya. Just hook one sub to your amp (bridged) and hook the other sub (positive and negative) to the first subs positive and negative

How do i wire a 8 ohm kicker comp 10" sub inside the box? and what is the best way to get more bump with a 600 w mtx amp and kicker comp 10" sub?


Ok, for an 8 Ohm sub, it is advisable to get another 8 Ohm sub. wire them in parallel down to a 4 Ohm load. You would wire both + wires together, and both - wires together to yield a 4 Ohm load at the amp. Majority of the amplifiers on the market are designed to give more power at a lower impedence, or Ohm load. You just have to make sure that your amp will take a 4 Ohm load. Without knowing the model of the MTX amp, I can't give more advise. However, this should be able to give you and idea of where to start. The main problem is that you have a single 8 Ohm sub in the Kicker Comp.

How do i wire a mtx 251d at a 2 ohm load


To wire up a 2 ohm load depends on the subs. You will either need 1 sub rated at 2 ohms or 2 subs at 4 ohms wired in parallel. This website will help.
http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp?Q=2&I=41#results
You can also use 1 dual voice coil sub rated at 4 ohms wiring the same way you would the 2subs at 4 ohms. Good Luck

How do you hook up 2 12" L7's to a kicker 1200.1 amp?


You have a 2 ohm stable amp, and dual voice coil subs.. The L7's come in both Dual 4 ohm, and Dual 2 ohm, so you have to know what impedance your coils are prior to wiring. HERE is a nifty little guide that will show you how to wire your subs. DO NOT WIRE THE SUBS LOWER THAN 2 OHMS ON YOUR AMPLIFIER!

rewire the subs-each sub you want in series=8 ohms per sub-then at the amp wire the two 8 ohm subs in parallel which brings the ohms back down to 4 ohms which is optimal for the amp and it shouldnt shut down on you any more-try that-good luck

I have a kicker zx700.5 amp


Hello aj_vidal22,

Here's the link to MTX's sub page where you can view or download the information you need to properly wire the subs to your amp.

http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/manualsQuickInstall/subs.cfm

For maximum power, you'll need to wire the subs so that they present a 2 ohm load to the sub outputs on your amp. That will give you the full 420 watts RMS the amp is rated for. Likewise, you,ll want the run the front 4-channels at 2 ohms. Run separately, they produce 85 Watts times 4 channels, or if bridged, 130 watts times 2-channels. But if you run fronts at 4 ohms, they only produce 70 watts times 4 channels and your sub output at 4 ohms drops to 210 watts.

Hope this helps.

What is the difference in a dual 2 ohm sub and a dual 4 ohm sub?


Dual 2 ohm sub can be wired to achieve a 1 or 4 ohm load.
Dual 4 ohm sub can be wired to achieve a 2 or 8 ohm load.

Usually no difference in Theile Small Parameters.... Only wiring configuration - to get the most power out of your amplifier.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Dual voice coil wiring to class d amp


The easiest way to think of wiring voice coils and subs is this:
  • Two items of the same impedance in parallel = Half of the impedance
    • 4 ohms in parallel with 4 ohms = 2 ohms
    • 8 ohms in parallel with 8 ohms = 4 ohms
  • Two items of the same impedance in series = Double the impedance
    • 4 ohms in series with 4 ohms = 8 ohms
    • 8 ohms in series with 8 ohms = 16 ohms
In this case, you want to wire two subs, each with dual 4 ohms voice coils, so that the total equals 2 ohms. Your options are:
  • DVCs in parallel, 2 subs in series = 4 ohms
  • DVCs in series, 2 subs in parallel = 4 ohms
  • DVCs in parallel, 1 sub = 2 ohms
With two, dual 4 ohm subs, you can only have 1 ohm or 4 ohm total impedance.
