I have 1 spl 12 inch 2200 watt sub and a 800 watt mono block ma audio amp i was bassin and the sub just quit. my amp has over heated before so i thought that was it. wrong amp was cold to the touch. thought is was the sub wiring not that. could it be rca jacks or is the sub blown need help starting to get angry at it
A friend of mine has a legacy amp i think its the 4000 watt version and has 8 gauge running to it with 2 12 in cadence super tx subs and the subs are bridged to 4 ohm on the amp and the amp will shut off all of a sudden when he changes songs or just in the middle of the song any ideas
If what you're telling me is correct you're trying to drive a stereo sub -woofer with a mono amplifier. If so, that could be a bad situation for the amp, if the voice coils are not wired together correctly. Before we go too far, I have some questions I need answered. 1. Is the MA unit an M1889i? 2. Do you have the 4 terminals of sub-woofer tied together. For example the 2 positive terminals are tied together & the 2 negative terminals are tied together? 3.How do you supply 12VDC to the amp?
While I'm waiting to hear back from you, I'll try to draw a schematic (wiring diagram) of the way it should be wired for your particular setup that I'll send to you.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

mono block anps are usually rated at lower impedance.
if your subs are dual 4 ohm , i'd wire all v/cs in parallel for a 1ohm load... unless the amp is all chromed up, than that rating is probably a WLS rating(when lightning strikes)... if the box says anaba group it typically does half of what it advertises.. :-(

This is a beast of a sub woofer. So give it the proper power it needs and make sure that your box is very solid in construction.
If installed correctly and given the right power, this sub woofer is bound to put a smile on your face and rattle your bones.
I hit 142dB with only one of these subs and im sure if i gave it more power i could hit the 150dB range. DON'T FORGET TO GIVE IT THE POWER IT DESERVES.
Hi mate very nice amp you got there here is the specs for it

1 x 650W RMS @
2 Ohm Mono
1 x 500W RMS @
4 Ohm Mono Fully Unregulated MOSFET Power
Supply 2 Ohm Stable @ Mono 1 Ohm Stable @ Mono 0.5 Ohm Stable @ Mono
if you have 2 12s just bridge them and you will have 650wrms at 2ohm running to them or one sub at 4 ohm 500w rms ps they should pump iam running 2 12s with just 360rms at 2ohm and they do the job good luck
