Re: audiobahn 12' subs and audiobahn amp

First thing is first. What subs do you have? Audiobahn makes several kinds of 12" subs. What model sub do you have?
Without knowing this, it would be hard to recomend an amp without knowing how much power your sub can handle. Audiobahn makes from very power amps that can put out up to 5000W RMS, but if your sub can not handle that power, then you will blow your sub.

I have a 12 inch audiobahn 550 rms 4 ohm coil ported box and a dual box with 12 inch subs they say 550 max wattas a piece thats it waht amp do i need to get atleast 80% of my power in bass

Get a 1200 watt 4 channel amp that's 2 ohm stable. Bridge 2 channels into the single 550W rms audiobahn. Use the other channels for each side of the dual box. Turn the LPF or Low Pass Filter on and vibrate down the road.

BOSS AUDIO SYSTEMS SE950 Car Audio Amplifier: I have a SE950 boss amp, hooked to 2 audiobahn 12"...

Sounds like you are over working this amp for sure.. Upgrading your power wire & battery might help, check your gain level on your amp to. This is not the volume for the amp. Its to get both amp and the cd player on the same page... And most of all if your subs are wired up to .5 ohm stable, see if your amp do the same... My answer to this ?? Upgrade your amp, Boss audio was never a good company to me, but that is my opinon. Audiobahn set up all the way..

My audiobahn amplifier isnt working, the status

it maybe fixable. the problem is that when you find what is burnt or messed up, you replace it. after that you need to find out why it burnt or messed up. i wouldnt recomend trying to fix it your self unless you wanna chance it. but if you take it to a technician that can fix it the will be able to tell you if it can be repaired. also check your power and ground wires. make sure youre getting 12 volts to the amp. check your subs and make sure they are good. a bad sub will put a amp into protect. good luck.

I have a audiobahn a400t and im running 2-12''jh45 mtx jackhammers the speakers are wired in parallel stabel @ 2or1 ohm. the speakers are in a ported box. how do i run my wires to my hook these up right to...

Hello rattle822,

A pair of JH4512-04's can be wired to 2 ohms if the subs themselves are paralleled. There's only one voice coil and it's 4 ohm. If wired in series, the final impedance to the amp would be 8 ohms. They cannot be wired to 1 ohm.

In bridged mode, your 4-channel amp is only stable down to 4 ohms. You can bridge 2 of the channels to provide a relatively low 200 watts RMS X 2. The best power solution for your subs would be to bridge channels 1 and 2 and wire one sub to it. Likewise, bridge channels 3 and 4 and connect the other sub. If you connect both subs in parallel, the impedance will be too low causing the amp to overheat and possible fail.

As for the settings: Low pass filter on, crossover somewhere between 80-100, input levels to match your receiver, and bass boost to your personal preference.

Hope this helps.

550x2 subs....SPL z2x-820 Amp


The 230 watt amp is a little small for your subs. They'll work, but if you are looking for max SPL, you won't get it. To push those Audiobahn's to their potential pavement shaking max, I would recommend an amp in the range of 500-600 rms (2-channel bridged) or 1000 watts rms monoblock.

Hope this helps.

Ok, I have a pair of infinity dual voice coil 12" subs, and a pair of audiobahn quad voice coil 12" subs. Boths sets of speakers can handle 450w. Which set of 12's would be best to hook up to this amp, and...

i recomend you just use the best single woofer in a well built box and that will give you better sound at lower gain volumes it sounds like you have too much junk laying around but to get good bass run your sub at 2 ohms if the amp is stable at that impedence

Amp. Audiobahn a2300hcx

If the subs are dual 4 ohm voice coils and if your amp is good down to 1 ohm, your best bet is:
  1. Connect the voice coils in parallel ("+"s together, "-"s together). This will make the impedance of each sub 2 ohms.
  2. Connect the subs in parallel.
  3. Bridge the amp to one channel.
This should max the amp out at 2400W, which means about 1200W per sub.

If your subs are single 4 ohm voice coils, do the same steps, but you'll only be able to load the amp to 2 ohms, which means about 600W per sub.

Also keep in mind that box size, type, and quality make a big difference in how subs sound.

Is it enough

Audiobahn subs are not too powerful and they can not handle too much continuous RMS, be careful they will heat up and tear off the voice coils off ur subs. run about 100 - 150 RMS at 75 HZ to each sub and keep the gains at about 3/4 this way you will avoid blowing out your subs. It also depends on the amp? What kind of amp is it?


Let me know if you wish. Otherwise
