On the low notes voltage drops to 10.8V and lights dim alot!which is not good at all:/ any suggestions, do i need a biger capacitor? Thanks

Re: lights dim

3000 watts divided by 12 volts=267 hot is your alternator...have you considered a separate alternator or a battery isolator?

JL audio 250/1 not powerful enough for pioneer TS-W307D4?

you should move up to more power....underpowering subs is bad! try not to go under the subs rms by 5o watts?

dude TRUST me what you are using and have setup already is plenty..ONE TIP...of all things anyoine ever needs to worry about is the R...M....S power rating...the PEAK means NOTHING! its safe and fine to use what you got.

Hello stingerman20,

Your Directed D2400 amp is CEA2006 Compliant. It is stable at 1ohm and will produce 1,200 watts into that load. So you want your subs wired as close to 1 ohm as possible.

The only 3500 watt Pioneer Premier series subs I could find were the models number TS-W3002D2 and TS-W3002D4 with dual 2ohm and dual 4ohm voice coils respectively. The wiring options for the D2's result in 0.5ohm (too low), 2 ohms, and 8ohms. Your best option would be the 2ohm configuration which would be voice coils in series and subs in parallel. Options for the D4's result in a 1ohm load and a 4ohm load. Your best option would be the 1ohm configuration which would be voice coils and subs parallel.

To see the wiring options, try Rockford-Fosgate's "wiring wizard".
Select 2 woofers and the appropriate voice coil impedance and quantity and click "search". It'll bring up all of the possible wiring configurations along with the final impedance load.

Hope this helps.

(2) 3 ohm voicecoils wired in parallel net a 1.75 ohm impedence.
The amplifier will produce 2000W 1 ohm
1500W @ 2 ohm.
A 1.75 Ohm load will be somewhere inbetween.
Plan on 1750W.
Plenty of power for both in the proper enclosure.

This sounds like an amplifier that trying to push a lower impedance load than its supposed to. Typical aftermarket car speakers have a 4ohm reading per voicecoil. By running more than one speaker per channel you can get more power(sometimes alot more) from the amp by feeding it a 2ohm load or more. If the amp isn't designed to handle ratings less than 4ohms a channel it will overheat and shutdown.

How should I wire my 3 subs to the 500/1 amp???????

First of all how many ohm's are each subwoofer rated at . Are the subwoofers dual voice coil or single voice coil. Once I know that I can help you. I think the JL amp is not recommended below a 2ohm load.

The specs I read on the Pioneer site say the amp is not 1 ohm stable, so keep that in mind.

It partially depends on the impedance of each voice coil on the DVC subs. If they are dual 4 ohm, and you connect the DVCs in parallel ("+"s together, "-"s together), you could run a sub on each channel of the amp(s). This would put about 200W on each sub.

The other option is to still tie the dual 4 ohm voice coils in parallel, tie 2 subs in series (one "+" to the other "-"), and bridge the two channels of the amp (aka put them in parallel). But this, also, would be about 200W on each sub.

Things get different if the subs have dual 2 ohm, 3 ohm, or 8 ohm voice coils.

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.

It should be better to use the Pioneer GM-7200M Amp with your subs.

For 8 ohm setup hook up this way:
Amp out+ to Sub1 +
Sub1 - to Sub 2 +
Amp out - to Sub2 -

For 2 ohm setup hook up this way:
Amp + to Sub1 +
Sub1 + to Sub2 +
Amp - to Sub1 -
Sub1 - to Sub2 -
