  • It is capable of driving a 2 ohm load.
  • It is a single channel amp, so bridging is not applicable. There are two speaker connections, true, but they are tied together internally.
  • It's rated at 500W @ 2 ohms
  • The issue you're going to have hooking up the subs you own is that you're not going to be able to optimize the output of the amp. If you hooked all of them up in parallel (both 15w0 as well as the dual voice coils of the 15w6), you'd be putting a 1.7 ohm load on the amp, which it may not like. In my mind, your best bet is to either put both 15w0's in parallel (125W per sub) and not use the 15w6.....OR.......use only the 15w6 with the dual voice coils in parallel (350W to the sub).

Amp comes on running 2 12" 450 watt pioneer subs, volume only seems to be about half output, with speakers bridged


This could be the reason. If you look at the specs for this amp you will see that the continuous power out is rated for 380W bridged. The speakers rated at 450W should be able to handle close to 315W continuous. Now if you split these numbers being you have bridged these speakers, you drive each one up to about 190W continuous. The speakers are being driven approximately by 60% of the rated capability. I personally like to keep it right where you got it, not exceeding 80% of the speakers rated capacity.

Here are the specs for the AMP:
  • Specifications
  • Peak Music Power 760 Watts
  • Number of Channels 2
  • Load Impedance Capability 2~8 Ohm (Stereo), 4~8 Ohm (Bridged)
  • Continuous Power (4 ohm) 125W x 2
  • Continuous Power (2 ohm) 190W x 2
  • Continuous Power Bridged (4 ohm) 380W x 1
  • Frequency Response 10Hz ~ 50kHz
  • Total Harmonic Distortion 0.008%
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio 100dB
  • Dimensions 12" x 2-3/8" x 12-3/4"
  • Features
  • Bridgeable
  • Channel # Capability 1/2/3
  • PWM Regulated MOSFET Power Supply
  • Screw-Type Speaker Terminals
  • Balanced Isolator Input Circuit
  • RCA Inputs 2 Channel
  • Input Level Control Hi-Volt (200mV ~ 6.5v)
  • Built-in Crossover Selectable LPF (80Hz, -12dB/Oct.)

    Jl audio 300/4 low ohms light wont go off


    If the low ohms light is on then you have your speakers wired to low. I need to know some more info like what type of speakers you have running on this amp and how many. Also was it working before and then it started doing this? Check the ohms with a volt meter if you know how, if not just get a volt/ohm meter and set it to the ohms setting and then take the positive(red probe) and touch it to the positive terminal on the speaker and then the negative(black probe) to the negative terminal and see what it reads. Make sure you check how low in ohms your amp is capable of handling. If you don't know just google the model of your amp and you will find a site that has a manual or just go to JL audios web site and you should find out there with no problem. Let me know what you find so I can assist you more if need be cause I also repair amplifires for a living and have many years experienc and I'm the cheapest amp repair business you will find any where. Good luck

    Wire three 10" jl subs to jl e1200


    what is the impedance of your woofers it will be a number with an Omega symbol. Looks like a horseshoe next to your woofer . Like this JL Audio 10W1v3 8ohm. Please, Please tell me you bought 8 ohm woofers JR?? Because if not, it ain't gunna happen.. If you did buy 8 ohm woofers than wire them in parrellel which means all the +'s together and all the -'s together giving you a final impedance of 2 ohms and your amp will think your a car audio GOD... But if not be ready to smell plastic burning where your amp used to be.... let me know i can walk you thru the wiring but let me know what you have. ok. mark

    Adjusting wattage on kenwood kac 9103 class D mono amp


    That amplifier is 900W x 1 @ 2ohms.
    If your subs are 4ohm SVC wired Parallel, resulting in a 2 ohm load, each sub will only see 1/2 of the rated power. (450W ea.)
    Your gain (sensitivity) setting should be between 75% and 85% to max. You will be fine.

    500/1 settings to run jl13w6 v2 d-4


    Just had a look at both amp and sub on the JL Audio website. The amp runs from 1.5-4ohms. 4ohms at 14.5V. The sub is running dual 4 ohms coils. That's what the D-4 means. So should be an easy set up. The amp has two mono outputs, so one for each coil. It looks like the perfect wattage to run the sub real nice.

    Reset amp


    Remove the speaker load. If this does not solve the problem then your amp may be damaged from being connected to too low an impedance. Make sure your amp is capable of driving the speaker load you have connected to it. Ohms is a measure of the speaker's impedance. Lower ohms means higher load on the amp. Using a speaker with 4ohms is safe for car amplifiers, some can do 2ohms but very few can safely do less than that. You didn't specify the model but I'm guessing that all JL amps will do 2 ohms no problem.

    Mmatsd500.2


    First, the specs:
    • PPI 4200am = 50x4 at 4 ohms, 100x4 at 2 ohms
    • Alpine 3553 = 35x4 at 4 ohms, 50x4 at 2 ohms
    • Mmats D500.2 = 350x1 at 4 ohms, 500x1 at 2 ohms
    • 3x Mmats Procast 12 = Dual 4 ohm VC
    • 1x JL 15w6 = Dual 6 ohm VC
    • 2x JL 15w0 = Single 8 ohm VC
    Second, I don't think I would recommend mixing n' matching the subs. One of the subs would always be working harder than the rest. If you want to run multiple subs, make them all the same. Sometimes, you can get away with it if they are all the same voice coil impedance, but in this case you've got dual 4 ohm, dual 6 ohm, and single 8 ohm subs all in the mix.

    If it were me, I'd probably stay with the single 15w6. But it's your money :)

    Make sure your multimeter is set for AC voltage.
