Asuming they are 4 ohm voice coils and only one per woofer then just join the +'s together and the -'s together.

I have 2 12 inch kickers cvr and i have the rockfordfosgate g15002 hooked up and briged and it keeps cutting off


This is usually due to wiring the subwoofers to the wrong Ohm load. Normally those amps are rated at a 4 Ohm load. It sounds to me like they are wired down to a 2 Ohm load and bridged. It's a protection situation for the amp. If you have a multimeter, disconnect the woofers from the amp. Next, hook the meter up to the subwoofers where the wire or wires are coming out of the box. If you can give more information on the woofers, I can give you a better idea on what the numbers that you should see. It depends on if they are dual 2 or 4 Ohm woofers.

How do i wire a kicker cvr if it has two reds and blacks


the sub is a dual voice coil, and depending on how you wire them, gives you different bass response as it drops the ohms in your amp. it can be wired for 2 ohms one way 4 ohms another way or 1 ohm depending on what ohm the coils are. to learn more about this got to rockford fosgate.com, click support, then click woofer wiring wizard, this will answer all your questions about dvc subs.

I have an Audiobahn A8000T amp and 2 12" Kicker CVR (DVC) Dual voice Coil. The Subwoofers are 2OHM a peice. What is the best way to hook this all up to run a 2 OHM load to my subs?


This is a link to Kicker for your CVR12 Subs...if you have the 2 ohm version (2 ohms per voice coil) and you have 2 speakers ....you will need to wire EACH speakers voice coils in series to get 4 ohms from each speaker and then wire the 2 speakers in parallel.....as in....2 ohms in series with 2 ohms = 4 ohms....both speakers wired same way, then in Parallel with each other = 2 ohm load. Page 2 of this link gives examples of both series and parallel wiring of your speaker.

If you are still not sure as to my description of ' How To',
PLEASE respond and I will attempt to explain it EXACTLY via wiring directions.

How do you hook up 2 15 inch cvr to 1 ohm


Hello juanelreypla,

If your CVR's have dual 2 ohm voice coils, they can only be wired for 0.5 ohm, 2 ohm, or 8 ohm final loads.

http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/woofer_wizard.asp?submitted=true&woofer_qty=2&woofer_imp=3

If they have dual 4 ohm voice coils, they can be wired to a final load of 1 ohm. Wire the voice coils in parallel and then parallel both subs. Like the diagram in Wiring Option #1 shown here.

Logic soundlab cpx1400 need to wire to a kicker cvr 15


Hello discrete01,

The Kicker model number 07CVR122 has dual 2 ohm voice coils, and can be wired for either 1 ohm or 4 ohms. Model number 07CVR124 has dual 4 ohm voice coils and can be wired for either 2 ohms or 8 ohms.

Kicker's wiring page is here: http://www.kicker.com/dvc_wiring

If you have the version with 2 ohm voice coils, you want to use the 2nd diagram for a final load of 4 ohms to the amp. The 1 ohm load is too low for the amp and will cause it to overheat and possibly fail. If you have the 4 ohm version, use the wiring shown in the 3rd diagram which is a perfect match for the amp.

Hope this helps.

I have 2 12 in kicker cvr tryna drop to lower ohm


http://www.colomar.com/Shavano/dvc_spkr_wiring.html

Use the above site for several wiring schematics on dual voice coil speaker hookups. It will show how to wire for different impedance.
Also, I think the CVR 12's come in 2 ohm and 4 ohm impedance. See if you can check yours to determine which you have....

How to wire a kicker 15 cvr


175W x 2 @ 2 ohms
350W x 1 @ 4 ohm
Your amplifier is not stable @ 2 ohm bridged. So you will have to wire them independantly on each channel.
+/- on sub to +/- on L channel
+/- on sub to +/- on R channel
Wiring the subwoofers in paallel will result in a 2 ohm load, which your amplifier is not rated to do. Doing so will cause heat buildup, and damage to the amplifier.

How to wire kenwood amp to kicker cvr 12"


How you wire it depends on how hard you want drive your amp. If your woofer runs 4ohm per coil I would wile it in series (amp +to sub +1 sub -1to sub +2 amp - to sub -2) then run it for a week and see if it has enough power. the lower your Impedance (the resistance load on the amp) the harder your amp works and more THD (noise) is produced. (Dclass amps aren't know for being clean to begin with) configured like this your amp will see 8ohms and sound the clean east. if this turns out to be not enough power wire it in parallel and double the output. wire amp + to sub +1 and +2 then amp - to sub -1 and -2.

A word to the wise... start with your volume very low and work up slowly most speakers will puk up the voice coil before the amp starts to get warmed up. you would hate to have to buy a new sub.

Have fun
