First of all your ******** shouldn't be running that many watts to two 12" cvr's. I have one in the specially insulated and plastic ported box that kicker made exactly for that sub. I'm running 850 watts to it and the peak on it is only 800, and i cant even turn the amp more than half way up. So pretty much you wanted help trying to figure out what to do, well here it is get another ******* amp with less wattage and a 2 channel amp *******.

This is a link to Kicker for your CVR12 Subs...if you have the 2 ohm version (2 ohms per voice coil) and you have 2 speakers ....you will need to wire EACH speakers voice coils in series to get 4 ohms from each speaker and then wire the 2 speakers in parallel.....as in....2 ohms in series with 2 ohms = 4 ohms....both speakers wired same way, then in Parallel with each other = 2 ohm load. Page 2 of this link gives examples of both series and parallel wiring of your speaker.

If you are still not sure as to my description of ' How To',
PLEASE respond and I will attempt to explain it EXACTLY via wiring directions.

How to connect dual vouice coil to amp


Hey well your gonna need to give more info. is the sub dual 2ohm dual 4ohm. if you have a dual 2 ohm you wire one + to one- (like a jumper wire)and then your other +.- go to your amp as 4ohms, if you have a dual 4ohm model and your amp can handel 2ohm stereo then wire your +to+ to +on the amp and the same for your -. it will bring a 4ohms to 2 ohms by connecting pos. to pos. and neg.to neg. then to your amp.

I want to know the best subwoofer wiring diagram for three kicker cvr 10 inch subs, 2 of them are dvc 4 ohm and 1 is dvc 2 ohm, the amp that i am using is jl audio 500.1 1.5-4ohms stable. can anyone help...


if the amp has a 2 outputs then i would wire the two 4ohms together, and the 2ohm by itself. and if its a 4 channel output then wire them all sepretly, if its a 1 channel output then wire the two 4ohms together and leave the 2ohm sub out

I have 2 12 in kicker cvr tryna drop to lower ohm


http://www.colomar.com/Shavano/dvc_spkr_wiring.html

Use the above site for several wiring schematics on dual voice coil speaker hookups. It will show how to wire for different impedance.
Also, I think the CVR 12's come in 2 ohm and 4 ohm impedance. See if you can check yours to determine which you have....

How do you wire 4 kicker cvr dual voice coil 4ohms to a 1500.1 kicker mono block 1 channel amp, they sound distorted when i turn them up, how should i wire them?


Hello antjobe,

According to Kicker the 1500.1 is only stable to 2ohms. So you will want your 4 CVR's to present a 2ohm or higher impedance to the amp.

The best configuration would be to wire the voice coils in series (each sub 8ohms) and then parallel all of the subs to the amp (2ohms). Here's a link to the diagram.

Hope this helps.

How do you wire four 12 inch kicker cvr dual voice coil, to a 2400 watt 1 channel class d amp


Hello brysonford00,

The wiring configuration depends on what final impedance you want the amp to see. If the subs are 4ohm DVC's, you can wire them to present a 2ohm impedance or an 8ohm impedance. The diagrams are here. If your subs are 2ohm DVC's, the wiring is the same. The impedances will be 1ohm and 4ohms.

Hope this helps.

CORRECT CONNECTION TO AMP BEING A FOUR TERMINAL SPEAKER


Hello i_starling,

The Kicker L7's come in either 2ohm or 4ohm dual voice coil (DVC) versions.

Whatever amp they are connected to, you need to know both the impedance of your L7's and the impedance of your amp. The L7's dual voice coils can be wired to provide a total of four different loads:

2ohm coils in parallel = 1ohm load
2ohm coils in series = 4ohm load
4ohm coils in parallel = 2ohm load
4ohm coils in series = 8ohm load

Your best connection would be the one that results in a final impedance load that is supported by the amp.

Hope this helps.

dual 2 wire vc's in series for a 4 ohm load each. Hook each speaker seperate channels on the amp.

dual 4 wire vc in series for an 8 ohm load each. Hook both + to the right + on the amp and both - to the left - on the amp. or

dual 4 wire vc in parallel for a 2 ohm load each and hook each speaker to seperate channels on the amp.

How to adjust the controls and gain on my kenwood 9104d 1800w amp


Hook the speakers in series to decrease your chances of blowing the amp and/or speakers themselves. And at high volumes make sure that the bass control is set for flat response.

How to wire up my kicker 12inch solobaric l5 2ohm to my zx500 2ohm mono amp. should it be ran in parallel or series? what is the best suggestion


Well first of all all solobarics are dual voice coil so you have 2 2ohm voice coils so if you wire them in parallel the sub will be pulling a 1ohm load wich would in time blow out your amp. So you want to wire both voice coils in series to produce a 4ohm load.
