Question about Car Amplifiers
I need some help big time,this is the situation.
an alpine head unit with 3 pre amp outs
2 hifonics bxi2006d amps, (650rm at 4hms, 1300rms at 2ohms, )
1 alpine 4channel amp mr450(40wx4 at 4ohms i think)
2 hifonics olympus subs, 2ohm dual voice coil, 1600w rms each
i want the first hifonics amp to run at 2ohms 1300w rms to the sub
and the other hifonics amp to run at 2ohms 1300w rms to the sub,
and i want them to share a 3 farad capacitor but i want to each amp to individually run each sub
i want the alpine amp to run alpine type r speakers and a couple of alpine tweeters at 4 ohms,
also, i am told i will need 1 gauge power and ground cable, so how can get power to the amplifiers with the same power wire but run individually to the components, and to all switch on by using one remote wire from the deck for all 3 amps
i would also like to wire circuit breaker at the car battery
All you have to do is run the power wire from your battery to your capacitor and then connect both sub amps to the capacitor. Run a secondary power wire to the Alpine amp from the battery to that amp. So two power wires, probably 4 gauge for alpine amp and 2 or 0 gauge for Hifonics. Remember to put a fuse or breaker no more then 18" from battery for each power wire. Count the fuses on the amp per say 4 30 watt fuses is 120 X 2 for 240 Amp fuse at battery and maybe set 10% lower but no more then 5% higher then for alpine amp do the same. So just in case you have a surge in the amp set up then all three are covered.

How do i wire 3 sub to one 4 channel amp
Posted on Feb 29, 2008
As i read your problem i can recommend you that connecting each of the hifonics amp to each hifonics sub with the same specs by getting the specs in interfacing the two or you can simply look to the output of the amp and the input of the sub and find a suitable plug that fits to them.
In the case if you want to run each hamp to individually run each sub but sharing 3 farad capacitor: what i can suggest is that you connect in parallel one connecting wire of each input or ouput of the amp or sub. Its like connecting a connector from each of the input or output of the amp or sub to one leg of the capacitor, and connecting two wires to the other leg, one is being connected to the amp or sub and the other wire is connected to the other amp or sub.
In the case of putting a circuit breaker at the car battery: what i can suggest is that you find an appropriate circuit breaker that fits the specs of the car battery then connect it in series on the positive supply or read the specs of the circuit breaker before you connect it to the battery. Having a circuit breaker is like having a fuse but with special advantages in favor of the circuit breaker.
In the case of having power to the amps you can run one power wire to the amps by dividing the power wire into two, one connected to the amp and the other wire to the other amp. Then you can connect each amp and sub in series individually by connecting one wire b/w amp and sub. I hope i solved your problem
