70 amps is a very large fuse for a 250W amplifier.

Watts are Amps multiplied by Volts, so you can work backwards and get to a much smaller fuse value.

250W / 14.4V = 17A.

If your kickers are wired to run mono at 2 ohms instead of 4 ohms, then your amp may be putting out up to 500W instead of 250W, in which case you will blow a 20A fuse and need to run a 40A.

I hope that helps.

I have a lanzar vibe pro VBP251 2200 watts and two 12" kicker comp subs. What do I set the amp on


You need to figure out what ohm capacity is of the amp and the speakers. It then comes down to wiring.

My kicker 12 inch cvr's arent hitting as hard as they should


amps and wiring kits are very optimistic on the output. If you want proper wire, buy some welding cable "0" or "00" guage. That solves the power delivery. Put a 1 Farrad (or more) capacitor near the amp, that solves the surge power issue. Make sure the box is suitable for the subs. Lastly I'd say do some research and find the right amp that can deliver the clean, huge current required to move some serious air!

What's the best way to wire a 12 inch kicker CVR


Ok, first you need to have at least ten gauge wire cause the amp needs agility of juice. Next you want to find a good ground to frame of the car (if its wrong you'll hear road noise through speaker.) Next look on the fire wall and find the terminal that has other wire coming to it (one from positive to the amplifier on battery the rest out top other you want to put an inline fuse to amp.and have ground write other side of the cart than the power. run write to amp then to your speaker I believe I made it is simple for you as possible good luck

Is two comp 12's with a 1200 watts nitro amp a


The 1200w rated for the amp is usually an absolute maximum output, the rated output is more likely about a quarter of this figure (300w) I think for the subs you are looking at, you would be better off with a more powerful amp

Hope this helps

Bass not Very deep


250 watts rms seems a little low for a 12 inch woofer, a 500 or higher will likely fix your problem. Specific model numbers and the type of enclosure you have will allow a more specific answer.

1000 watt amp sony xplod


That's not a 1000w amp. It's a 400 watt amp when loaded to it's lowest rated load. If you have one speaker per channel (the only safe load if you have single 4 ohm coil speakers), you're only getting 165 watts/speaker. It's probably distorted because you're driving it to clipping.
