Here's your best bet. Crutchfield magazine has THE best site for training. The link to the page for you is http://www.crutchfield.com/learningcenter/car/subwoofers_wiring.html
You will need to know how many voice coils your sub has, how many ohms and how many channels you amp has, then click the appropriate link. Good luck and don't forget to leave "FixYa" for feedback.

What is this ? On the back of Power Acoustik 500w subwoofer


Sub-woofers work on a low hertz as per audio. You have a built-in amp that has a crossover that separates frequencies under 100 Hz. Typical Hertz range is between 20-60. Since you have a built-in amp the black rectangle is a heat sink which helps to dissipate heat away from the internal components and also seconds as a cover to keep debris and other foreign objects from getting to the amp and burning it out.

Hope this helps.

How do i fix a frozen 12 inch power acoustik FUBAR-12W sub


You have a case of a blown sub. You will need a recone kit. You ca send it in to a company like fix my speaker or google recone kits for Power Acoustik FUBAR. May be cheaper just to get another sub.

I have power akoustik 12"


If you sub is dual 4 ohm voice coil, you can get a 4000 watt amp (which will give you 1700 watts RMS at 2ohms). The model number is OW-BAMF40001D. Hope this helps.

I have two different sets of hook ups on my Power Aucoustik 10" Sub. Do I hook up both sides?


Depending on the PA FUBAR you have. The voice coil on those subs are DVC. Dual Voice Coil. You need to know a couple things. What kind of amp are you going to run on it. And what is the resistance (OHM) rating of each voice coil. MY two 12's are dual 4 ohm. Meaning that there are essentially 4 speakers to hook up. My amp currently is not 2 ohm stable in bridged. So what I did is run each speaker in parallel (red2red,black2black) then run to the box terminal. So now the dual 4 ohm voice coils are basically 2 ohm. I have 2 speakers. Now I hook the box up in series. To bring the now two 2 ohm speakers into one 4 ohm speaker. This is called series/parallel setup. My amp sees this box as 1 channel @ 4ohms. The downfall to this is the output of the amp is divided up into each speaker. So instead of sending all 1400 watts to one sub. I will send 700 to each sub. But here is a catch. even though each speaker is half the total wattage it will still be 3db louder. Meaning it will be as loud as 1 sub running 1400 watts. To conclude i need to know how many of those subs you are going to run on the amp.. And the model number of the amp so I can match up your wiring.

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.

How do i wire two 15 inch subs to 2 ohms


Hello familia_gome,

Those MOFO-15's have dual 1ω voice coils. So the only way you can get 2 of them to present a 2ω load is to use 1 voice coil on each one with the two of them wired in series. Using both voice coils, you can get a 1/4ω load by wiring the voice coils in parallel and then wiring the subs themselves in parallel. You'll get a 1ω load with the voice coils in series and then parallel the subs. Or you'll get a 4ω load with both the voice coils and the subs in series.

Here's a link to Power Acoustik's PDF for the MOFO's. I recommend that you check out the wiring diagrams on page 3.

Hope this helps.

Need to pick perfect amp


I suggest to use separate amps to your sub, get a 2 channel amp for your sub and 4 channel amps for your speakers.

Here are my Top 5

  • Lanzar -OPTI4000D
  • MA Audio- HK-4000D
  • JL Audio 1000/1V2
  • OPti 22.2 Power Amp
  • AudioBahn-A5100T

Will a sony 1000 watt amp model # xm-1652z run 2 dvc 800 watt rms subs?if so,whats the best way to wire them to this amp?thx


personally i wouldnt use a sony amp for powering anything but,however if your going run it what i would recommend is if the speakers are at 4 ohms then run in series per speaker then put the speakers in series as well so you will keep your 4 ohms then run the amp in mono,however just to let you know that amp will not push fubars enough to really make them thump my advice is to goto http://www.sonicelectronix.com  if you have 200 dollars you can get a nice  Hifonics TXi 1508D that will push those monsters quite well thats 1 ohm stable and will barley get warm even after hours of thumpage,also if your running subs monoblocks are the way to go hope this helps you out.

Wiring of Subwoofer


IF ITS TWO SUBS USE TWO OF THE SAME AMPS AND U WILL GET A BANG

Wiring the coils together


For each sub, tie the DVCs in parallel ("+"s together, then "-"s together). This will make the subs look like 2 ohms to the amp. Then, put one sub on each channel of the amp. That will put about 280W rms onto each sub, the max for the amp.
