How should I wire my 3 subs to the 500/1 amp???????

How should I wire 3 "12 's to my amp. The subs are all wired together. So there is one speaker wire that supplies power to all 3 subs. Should I have the subs wired this way. Or is there a better way to wire my subs to optimize the power off the 500/1 amp?

First of all how many ohm's are each subwoofer rated at . Are the subwoofers dual voice coil or single voice coil. Once I know that I can help you. I think the JL amp is not recommended below a 2ohm load.

Wire 2 sub 4ohm


I am assuming these are subs, you didnt say, but that is my guess. do you want bass, or do you want to take it easy on your amp? do you have a terminal cup on your sub box, or just wires going into the box to the speakers? take it easy route: wire positive from amp to positive of one speaker, negative of amp to negative of the other speaker, with a jumper wire connecting the negative of the first speaker, to the positive of the second.
more bass route: run seperate positive and negative wires to each speaker, making sure to maintain proper polarity.

Ok i got a mtx 12' 500 sub matched to a alpine mrd-m500 mono amp. The deck powers the 4 speakers, as i turn the volume up on my deck (alpine cde 100) the sub/amp cuts out at around volume 20-22 and E-3...


Sorry,after rereading your problem,I gave a wrong answer.Do you have the deck sub RCA pre-amps connected to the amp,then the wires from the amp to the sub?If you do,you need to check what the sub and amp are rated as such as,peak or rms.They are 2 completely different meanings.Greg

    Amp turns off.


    your drawing/pulling too many amps. Is it a mono(one speaker), two way(two speakers/can be briged to one), or a four way(four speakers/can be brigrd to two). don't put too many speaker to that one amp if it's only a mono, or a two way.

    How do i hook them up to work for 2ohm's


    Hello rcantu76,

    If your CVR's are 2ohm (model Nr. 07CVR122), you connect the voice coils in series and then parallel both subs to the amp. If the subs are 4ohm (model Nr. 07CVR122), they cannot be wired to 2ohms. Your choices are 1ohm or 4ohms. According to Rockford-Fosgate's data on the P1000-1bd, it is stable at 1ohm.

    To wire the 122's at 2ohms, you would connect the sub voice coils in series (jumper one positive to the other negative on each sub), and then connect the remaining positives and negatives to the amp.

    To wire the 124's at 1ohm, you would connect all of the positives and all of the negatives together to the amp.

    Hope this helps.

    Confused about system


    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.

    *amp to sub wiring help...


    The 2500D has 2 "+" and 2 "-" power connections to help split the current between two smaller wires vs. one giant, hard to route wire. According the manual, for optimal performance, both "+" and "-" power connections should be utilized. They also recommend using 4AWG wire for these connections.

    The 2 "+" and "-" speakers connections are only there to simplify the wiring of multiple speakers into the amp. Both "+" get tied together inside the amp, as do both "-" connections. In this case, with the dual 2 ohm voice coils on your 12" sub, you would wire one voice coil to one +/- set on the amp and the other voice coil to the other +/- set.
