You didn't state the ohms of the voice coils! Dual 2 ohms then run the coils in series to get for ohms each side of the amp. Otherwise it would get 1 ohm and that's too low!

If they are dual four ohm subs them run each sub in parallel to get two ohms at the amp which is good and possibly 2000 Watts power channel MAX, mind you this is a crappy amp so doubtful it produces that much for very long!

Dual 8 ohm subs... Run both voice coils in parallel for four ohm per sub. Run both subs in series to get 8 ohm load. Then run bridged at the amp which will halve the load internally and get you for ohm bridges which should bee fine for the amp. Even crappy ones are stable at four ohms bridged.

Run them straight and dont use the cross over. One speak on right channel and the other on other channel. Then turn up amp settings 7/8 the way up and control the rest from your dvd/cd player. I recommend some monster cable which is very thick. Ground the amp directly to trunk bolts but make sure to scrape the paint off or the connection will be bad. You can also use a cap which will send battery pulses to amp much quicker.

Yes it should do the job. You will need to wire the sub in series and make sure you have a 4ohm load on the amp. It should be right at around 700 watts RMS @ 12-13 volts.

How do i reset my 4000 watt lanzar vibe 286 from being in protect mode


You can only reset it by disconnecting power to it. If it is in protect you may want to check your speakers and speaker wires for shorts and/or grounds. If they check out all right you may have internal problems in the amp.

Can I hook up 2 lanzar opti1532 subs 2 a kicker kx 1200.1 or do I need a bigger amp, its a 1ohm stable amp an birth sheet says 1390watts but they told me at 14+ volts it will do 1400rms


Based solely on spec sheet information the Lanzars can handle 1300 watts RMS and the KX1200 is rated at 300x1 @ 4 ohms, 600x1 @ 2 ohms, & 1200x1 @ 1 ohm. Even with a 1 ohm load you will still only be providing 600 watts to each sub. While the kicker will provide more power at 14+ volts, no car creates more than 12-13 volts via its alternator. A car battery only provides 12.6 volts. So you will be loking at 1200 watts from 1 channel as a best case scenario.

Additionally, with your 2 subs, they will need to both be Dual 4 ohm voice coils in order to net a 1 ohm final load. Each voice coil will need to be wired in parallel and then each speaker needs to be wired in parallel.

How do you bridge a dual voice coil


use a decent wire (same gauge as you would use to connect it to your amp) and connect it between the "+" pole of one coil and the "-" pole of the other coil. use the 2 other poles to connect the speaker to the amp. Have a nice day!

How do you wire up a dual voice coil lanzar 15 for 4 ohm?


Hello dexterchapma,

The only way to wire a single 4ohm DVC sub to present a 4ohm load is to just connect one voice coil. If you wire the coils in parallel, you get a 2ohm load. If you wire them in series, you get an 8ohm load. But it will work great with just one voice coil. Or if you really want to use both voice coils, and your amp isn't stable at 2ohms, wire the voice coils in series and present an 8ohm load to the amp. It'll work fine, it just won't deliver quite as much power.

Hope this helps.

Wiring a sub with duel voice coil


In short yes. And is very common even has its own term called bridged. Taking two channels and making them one. I would hope that you are running a cap. that's going to put out a lot of power and stress on your battery
