How to bridge a dual voice coil subwoofer, the sub has 4 speaker wire connections coming out the back how do i bridge it two one

You have two choices of how to wire this sub.

First, is an 8 ohm load. This is called a series set up. Go from the positive of the amp to the positive of one voice coil. Then go from the negative of that voice coild to the positive of the other voice coil. Then go from the negative of that voice coil to the negative of the amp.

Second is a 2 ohm load. This is called a parrallel set up. Go from the positive of the amp to the positive of both voice coils. Then go from the negative of the amp to both negatives of both voice coils.

Make sure your amp can handle a 2 ohm load. If you have two subs, you will need a 2 channel amp.

How to hook it up for one ohm

oh yes the JBL GTi W15GTI Mkll. this subwoofer is a dual 6 ohm voice coil subwoofer. This is impossible to run this sub alone and get 1 ohm you will need another JBL GTi W15kll. the lowest impedance you can go to is 3 ohms. you can achieve this by connecting the positive terminals together and then running a wire from the two positives to the positive terminal on the amp. then connecting the negative terminals together and then running a wire to the negative terminal on the amp. this is a real nice sub it just has that one down fall of having a six ohm voice coil.

How do I wire my 12inch mtx ts 55 subwoofer two outlets red with red and black with black or red and black and red and black

The TS55 is a DVC subwoofer that can be wired for either 4 ohms (voice coils in series) or 1 ohm (voice coils in parallel). The appropriate wiring depends on the amp.

If the amp is stable at 1 ohm, wire both positives and both negatives to the matching amp output terminal (parallel) as shown in Wiring Option #1.

If the amp isn't stable at 1 ohm, connect a jumper between the positive on one voice coil and the negative on the other voice coil. Then connect the remaining positive and negative to the matching amp output terminal (series) as shown in Wiring Option #2.

I cannot find a diagram of how to wire a boss audio phantom p128dc dual voice coil subwoofer with there being 4 binding posts on each side of the woofer.

I will assume that you mean four posts total and not four on each side. It's a dual voice coil and you will need a jumper. Take a small strip of speaker wire and connect the positve and negative of one coil together. Take a close look, there is a dot on one positive and a dot on one negative. Jump these two together. Now wire the other positive and negative to the amp's positive and negative.

Dont know how to connect daul voice coil on a icbm-5612 performance teknique.

If you want a 2 ohm total load..wire it from the amp positive(red) to the first coil positive(red) and then to second positive(red). Amp negative(black) to first coil negative(black) and then to second negative(black). This will give you a 2 ohm total load on the amp.

I have a JL audio 12W3v2-d4 subwoofer which has two sets of terminals and i needto know how to wire them correctly as my old one only had one set of terminals . i bought it second hand and didnt get wiring...

Your amp is stable bridged mono at 2ohms, however, having dual 2ohm voice coils will drop the amp to 1ohm if parallel and will kill it. The cleanest possible way to run this amp and keep it cool with lots of headroom is to run the coice coils in series then run the amp in mono @ 4ohms. To do this, run from one voice coil to another, a jumper. connect positive from one voice coil to the neg of the other voice coil. Then connect the remaning positive on one voice coil and the neg from the other voice coil to your amp (positive left and negative right on the amp) If your amp has a switch for momo make sure it is on, some are automatic. Hope this helps

Wiring 12" icmb-5612 preformance teknique subwoofer

That sub has dual 4-ohm voice coils. It can be wired either as 2-ohm, 4-ohm, or as 8-ohm.

2-ohm = voice coils in parallel (both positives and both negatives connected to your speaker amp out wires).
4-ohm = use only 1 voice coil (either is OK).
8-ohm = voice coils in series (connect the positive of one voice coil to the negative of the other and connect the remaining positive and negative to your speaker amp out wires).

How do i hook it up

On the Sub you have 4 connectors, 2 for each voice coil... Run a jumper wire from One side of the sub to the other. Positive to negative so that now you have one set of connectors free. Doing this will make the sub able to handle more cause you're using both voice coils. Thats how i've always hooked mine up when i have duel voice coil and they always last a long time. If you're gonna bridge the amp, make sure its turned down for about 5 or 6 hours to let the sub break in.

I have 2 kicker 07CVR124 12" dual voice coil with a 800 watt mono pioneer amp. How do I wire it correctly

I'm not sure what pinoeer amp you have. If I remember correctly some are 1 ohm stable. In this case you would be able to wire everything in parallel. Meaning, with the voice coil, wire the positive to positive, and the negative to negative. Then wire the subs together positive to positive, and negative to negative. This will give you the total impedence of 1 ohm. If it isn't 1 ohm stable the best you could do is 4 ohms. To do this you would need to wire the voice coils in series and the subs in parallel. Meaning, wire the negative to positive and the positive to negative. Then take the subs and connect the positive to positive and the negative to negative. I hope this isn't too confusing. If you need further assistance let me know. Good luck

im assuming you have 2 subs that are DVC? if thats the case, wire from the positive on the amp to the positive voice coil 1 on sub 1 to the positive on voice coil 1 on sub 2. then do the same with the negative sides. then on the second voice coil of sub 1, connect a wire from positive to negative. do the same for sub 2.
