Running parallel means positive to positive and negative to negative.

Wire 2 sub 4ohm


I am assuming these are subs, you didnt say, but that is my guess. do you want bass, or do you want to take it easy on your amp? do you have a terminal cup on your sub box, or just wires going into the box to the speakers? take it easy route: wire positive from amp to positive of one speaker, negative of amp to negative of the other speaker, with a jumper wire connecting the negative of the first speaker, to the positive of the second.
more bass route: run seperate positive and negative wires to each speaker, making sure to maintain proper polarity.

How do I wire up my 4subs in bridged to my peace 2600


Hi,

Please state the subs impedance, but assuming 4 subs with 8Ohm Voice Coil you CAN'T run them in parallel in Bridge Mono because this amp's minimum impedance is 4Ohm in bridge and 2Ohm stereo, maybe a series/parallel connection work, but what's the advantage to run them in Bridge mode? This amp delivers 900W per channel at 4Ohm, you can run a pair paralleled for each channel in a safe way and without the high-risk of your amp being destroyed, besides, amp power at 4Ohm Bridged is NOT recommended for continuous use, let me know your results...

How do I connect my nitro 1000 watt amp to get thr most bass .i have two 15 vx kickers


If you have the Nitro bmw-482 running it at 2 ohms will give you the max output (its not 1ohm stable so don't run it that way). First run your two dvc speakers parallel (run both negative out puts together and both positive out puts together on each speaker). After this you should have 1 positive and 1 negative wire from each speaker (4 wires altogehter). This will give you a 1 ohm load which your amp can't handle, so you have to run the 4 wires in series to create a 2 ohm load. Now take the positive wire from 1 speaker and connect it to the negative wire from the opposite speaker. Thats how to run in series. Now you should have 1 positive wire from 1 speaker and 1 negative wire from the other speaker which is 2 ohm load. Your amp sould be bridgeable, so connect the positive wire into the correct terminal of your amp and the negative wire into the correct terminal of your amp according to where to bridge it (positive into left positive, negative into right negative) . That will give you a 2 ohm load bridged which is the most power you can get out of your amp 300 watts. Medium quality amps are over rated so you will never acheive the 1000 watts as advertised.

My vibe 2004 doesn`t start sometimes since I start using fm transmitter powered by cigarette lighter outlet. When I start,i hear a little click but starter doesn`t come on. After waiting for 20 to 30mn or...


it could be the the starter solenoid or starter itself that is the problem.you said it started when you started using your fm transmitter have you tried not using it to see if it starts working correctly for a few days.if it works normally then this is the problem.try another outlet if you have one to see if the problem starts again.

How to connect HIFONICS BXI 2607 D watt at 1 ohm....


That's dependent on your subwoofers. You will need 2 dual 4 ohm subs wired in Parallel, a single dual 2 ohm subwoofer wired in parallel, a single dual .5 ohm wired in series. Or something similar.

How 2 wire 3 jl audio w6 v2


Hello mikey4569mky,

Unless your amp is stable below 1 ohm, there's really only one wiring solution. And that is to series the voice coils making each sub 8 ohms, then parallel all 3 subs to the amp for a 2.67 ohm load. If you parallel the voice coils and then parallel the subs, the impedance will be 0.67 ohms, much too low for most amps.

You could parallel the voice coils and then series the subs for a 6 ohm load, but the amp won't put as many watts into a 6 ohm load. Most are optimized for 4 ohms or 2 ohms. And it's not good to run subs in series anyway.

Here's the wiring diagram.

Hope this helps.

Control the volume on each of the 12 bass shakers i plan to install


Please note that you can't simply wire them together in series or parallel. Connecting any more than 2 would likely cause damage to your amplifier. (depending on the impedance of the bass shaker 4 ohms, 8 ohms, etc.)

The Buttkicker brand recommends the following configuration for four buttkickers into one amp: Click here

As you can see, you need a combination of parallel and series connections to make sure the amp is "seeing" the correct load. I'd recommend purchasing three dedicated subwoofer amps (there are some good inexpensive ones at http://www.parts-express.com.

This will give you volume control over each set of four shakers at the amp itself. If you need control at each shaker, the only solution I know if is to use an impedance matching volume control.

Check Parts Express for those, too.

If this solved your problem, please rate it as FixYa. If not, let me know how else I can help you.

Good luck!

I have 2 pioneer ts-w307d4 400watts rms and an GMD7400M 400 Watt Mono Digital Amplifie now how do i connect this or what is the best connection or setup?


liquid_icon:

Since the the subs are 4ohms & the amp's highest output is @ a 2 ohm load, you will need to wire the subs in parallel to the amp. When speakers are wired in parallel it reduces the resistance the amp feels on it's output. In "parallel" means connecting the + terminals of each speaker to the + terminal of the amp. Then connect the - terminals of each speaker to the - terminal of the amp. Make sure you use the correct wire size called for the spk mfg. That's it. If you need additional help, let me know.

peace-out

2 ohm dvc and monoblock sub amp


Yes. When you run two-two ohm subs to a monoblock amp its on the same channel meaning there ran parallel, and that makes it one ohm and most mono-blocks won't read one ohm. Are you popping fuses in the amp?

Amp & sub wiring


Whether you should run them series or parallel depends on the ohms of the speakers and the rating of the amp. If the amp rating is 2 ohms and the speaker are 4 each, then you can run parallel. When you connect speakers in parallel, the total impedance (ohms) is calculated by dividing the impedance of one speaker by the number of speakers, assuming they're all the same. When in series, add the speaker impedances together (i.e. 2 speakers 4 ohms each=8 ohms) Going over the amp rating doesn't hurt anything but the level of sound, but when you go below it, you'll eventually burn out the amp.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!
