Ok, without knowing if you have the 2 or 4 Ohm Dual Voice Coil (DVC) version of the subwoofer, I'm going to assume you have the dual 4 Ohm version. The reason why is because, assuming you have the Pioneer GM-5300T amp, that amp does not support an 8 Ohm load. If you wire it in parallel, that would give you a 2 Ohm load. Parallel will be solid red connected to red/white dot, then to amp +, and solid black to black/white dot to amp -. Without knowing more specifics on the amp, that should fix the problem. Let me know what you get.

Im totally confused n where to put the settings on this amp and i just want some straight forward help please?


Your SX650.1 is 2 ohm stable so wire the voice coils in parallel and the speakers in series, then bridge the amp. Keep your multimeter close. Don't forget to beef up your input wire size to 4 gauge on the positive and the negative side. The rear channel should be set around 80 Hz. Your amp has a variable low pass crossover (30-200 Hz) with adjustable slope (set at 12/18 to start) but you should be able to hear the bang and the boom in the sub woofer. This is only a starting point for the real ear tune. I turn the gains all the way down and give the head unit 3/4 volume, turn the gains up just before it starts to scream then fine tune the frequency (Hz). Do the front and rear separately by disconnecting the RCA's, and then together. Try and play a wide verity of music while your adjusting your amps, but fine tune what you like. I hope this helps to get you started, Ray

What is the best way to wire four 6" 55 watt


My advice would be to connect the front speakers and the sub woofer to the amplifier and run the remaining rear 2 speakers from the headunit. This way you dont stress the amplifier to run on two different loads at the same time and still maintane control over your system. Bridge your sub woofer on chanel 3&4 and do not forget to set the LPF for chanel 3&4. If your speakers are not components in the front set the HPF on chanel 1&2 to roughly 60 to 80 Htz.

for better power yes one ohm but amp must be 1 ohm stable.and both subs will have to be 4 ohm subs to get the 1 ohm needed .If its a class D amp both speakers outs are bridged internally so either is ok to use look see if there is a bridging line on speakers that runs from one side to other and will say bridging. if not any side will work.a manu would help you find yours or you can look one up online.al

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.)

    Why is my Kicker 08zx650.4 amp turning off in my 98 Deville??


    ive been hearing alot of this going on yes you had youre system proffesionaly installed but youre amp is pushing at all its got it must be pushing at 1ohms capacity loud but what you dont realize is that.. do ur home work first some amps say they can handle the power but if you read carefully it would read not stable look up amp on the net before buyin review them first ...but evrything youve got is correct its youre amp it wont burn out but you wont get continous power to ur spkrs ..i recomend installing one amp on each spkr same brand if you prefer in keeping it with a crossover if you dont have one that way they wont over heat and cutt off and you will use less power and get more bass...

    PIONEER 300 WATT CAR STEREO AMP WIREING HOW TOO


    depending on how many channels the amp is, you may not be able to hook everything up to it.

    usually you have a separate amp for subs. 4 channel amp for the speakers in the car, and a mono amp for the subs.

    To hook them all up to the same amp you would need an amp with 5 channels. It wouldn't work out right.

    If you have a mono amp its only for subs.

    If you have a 2 channel you can either hook it up to the rear speakers or bridge them to mono to run the subs.


    you need a channel per speaker basically.

    More power output to sub


    I don't know what kind of Amp you have, but you have to bridge the channels together.....For example, on a 2 channel amp you would just take the + wire from the Left channel and the - wire on the right channel and run it to the speaker. This uses the combined power from BOTH channels and funnels it right into the speaker. I hope you have a low frequency filter "LPF" adjustment. In case you are unfamiliar with this term, LPF is a function that most top-shelf amps have which will cut out most all mid-range and all high-range frequencies and put out only LOW (BASS) frequencies......At any rate, since you have a 4 channel amp, to bridge all 4 channels is a little more complicated so I am not going to elaborate too much information as of now only because I don't want to confuse you, or give you the wrong information pertaining to the wrong type of amp and have it blow up as a result of confusion....But you can bridge 4 channels typically in a similar way

    Sub woofers and amp


    first of all is the amp a four way amp? if so then you need to know what the watts of the subs are (you dont want to melt them) wire + and - of channels 1 and 2 to one sub and + and - of channel 3 and 4 to second sub, nice thick lead from battery positive (fused) to positive terminal on amp thick lead from a good earth point to negative terminal on amp run a set of rca leads down the opposte side to the positive wire to prevent interference, run thin wire from remote wire of radio to the remote terminal of amp, rca's are plugged in at stereo and at the am. may need a RCA splitter to be able to power all four channels

    Good luck Davelee

    Wiring woofers


    Well, you have the 4 ohm dvc kickers, and your amp being stable to 2 ohms doesn't go together very well. If you wire the voice coils in series, and hook the speakers to the amp in parallel, you get 4 ohms, which doesn't use all the power your amp is capable of. If you run the voice coils and the speakers in parallel, you'll drop the resistance to 1 ohm, and probably fry the amp, or at least deal with overheating issues. Better be safe than sorry. You need to run each speaker in series, which means running a positive and negative to each speaker, and a jumper from those terminals to the opposite colored terminals on the second voice coil. Diagram can be seen here: http://www.kicker.com/06/tech-support/manuals/manuals/02SoloBaricL7manual.pdf That puts two 4ohm voice coils in series, and raises the resistance of each speaker to 8 ohms. Then, you have to run both speakers in parallel to the amp. When you run two 8 ohm circuits in parallel, the total resistance of the circuit is 4 ohms. That means seperate positive and negative wires to each speaker. If it is a mono amp, connect both negatives to the negative output, both positives to the positive output. If it is a multi-channel bridgeable amp, You'll probably connect the negatives to one side output (right for example) then connect the positives to the opposite side output (left for example). If you need to bridge your amp, make sure it is bridgeable, and also that you have the speakers bridged to the proper amp outputs. If not sure, reply back here with the amp model number, and maybe I can help you further.Thanks, and I hope this solves your problem.
