How do hook up an amplifier and subwoofer to my car stereo?

If your stereo has preamp outputs, I would recommend connecting those to the input RCA connections on the amplifier. The connection from the amplifier to the subs is dependent on the capability of the amp and the impedance/power level of the sub.

How to hook up a dual voice coil subwoofer

The problem with dual voice coil subs is that the amplifier must be able to drive the load. I am assuming that each coil is 2Ohms each and the amplifier you are driving the subwoofer with is capable of driving that load. If this assumption (of the VC) is true your Amplifier will need to power the 2Ohms of the VC this will be "Normal". If the Amplifier is not capable of powering less than 4Ohms you will need to wire the subwoofer in "Series". If the Amplifier is capable of powering half the VC's resistance you can wire it in "Parallel". Normal wiring is going to be, Positive on the Amplifier goes to the Positive (red) side on the subwoofer and Negative on the Amplifier goes to the Negative (black) side on the subwoofer, then repeat this for the other output side of the Amplifier to the other VC, easy: This is "Series". Now if the amplifier is not capable of driving the load this gets slightly complicated. Positive from one of the positives on the amplifier goes to one positive side of the speaker. Negative goes to the opposite coils Negative side (black), now you get a short wire of your preference from the Negative that has no other input and run it to the opposite Positive side that has no other input: This is called "Parallel". If the Amplifier is capable of running a load lower than the resistance rating of the subwoofer then run the wire from Positive on the Amplifier to Positive on the subwoofer and Negative on the Amplifier to Negative on the subwoofer, and then run a short wire of your preference from the first VC to the other VC, Positive to Positive and Negative to Negative. Double check the wiring Red to Red and Black to Black in everything but "Series". Take it easy and don't wake the dead, I did that in the middle of the day they don't like being waken from their slumber.

Hooking sub up

Hello missywarden,

According to the specifications, the amp is capable of "tri-mode" operation, that is, running normal speakers on the individual channels while also powering a subwoofer in bridged mode.

Your sub needs to be a minimum of 4ohms and should be relatively efficient. I'd look for a sub that has an RMS power range of from about 75 watts up to a maximum of 250 watts.

The sub connects to the leftmost speaker terminal (positive - right channel) and the rightmost speaker terminal (negative - left channel).

It's not going to be a really loud subwoofer. The power is 360 watts RMS which will be shared by the normal speakers and subwoofer.

Hope this helps.

Sub cutting out

Check the 12v wire running from the battery to the amplifier. Also the sony explode is a garbage subwoofer compared to the Alpine.. sony (they say 1200w max but its more like 100w to power the thing) Amp could be going. Is the amplifier hot when running. If there is a burnt smell comming from the amp, its the amplifier

Sony XM-1252GTR Amplifier

Can it power the subs? Yes.

Can it make them crank? Well, that all depends on your expectations. That amp/sub combo is going to give each sub about 125W, which isn't much. But if it's what you have, it's better than nothing. You might also consider using only one sub and bridging the amp. This would put about 340W on the one sub, which is much more reasonable.
