Can I wire two p3 12 Rockford fosgate subs to a kicker 250.1 amp


It has two speaker terminals which allows you to wire muliple subs to the amp easier than trying to cram the wires all into one set of terminals. The two sets of terminals are wire in parallel internally on the amp, so it matters no which + or - you use on it. However, you need to remember they are already wired in parallel internally, so if you were to wire up two 2 ohm subs, the amp would see a 1 ohm load (which it's not stable at), not a 2 ohm.

Have 2 4+4ohm avi sl500 subs how do i wire it to this amp and what setings on this amp alpine mdr m1005 1000watt amp


using these subs will limit you to a 4 oh load to the amp witch will only let the amp produce half of it's power. the lowest ohm load that amp can handle is 2 ohm and the next lowest you can wire the subs is 1 ohm and that will over heat the amp and destroy it. so to answer your question first wire each sub like this diagram shows...
Wiring Option #1
1_4ohmdvc_2ohm.gif
then once both subs are wired this way you wire both positives from each sub to the positive side of the amps speakers terminals and wire each subs neg. to the amps neg speakers terminal. the wire is series parrelle and will present a 4 ohm load witch will be the safest to run with your amp.

You'll have to lengthen the wire. You should be able to lengthen it by cutting the terminal off the end of the wire and stripping it. Then attach a piece of wire to it with a wire nut. If you use solid wire you shouldn't need a terminal -- just bend it into a circle.

What is the best way to wire two alpine SWR 1222D subs to a alpine PDX 1000 1


First off excellent choice on audio equipment, i guarantee you won't be disappointed. So your subs are dual coil 2 ohms. So wire each individual sub in series. If you don't know what this means i'll explain. On each sub there are 2 sets of wire terminals. Connect a wire from the one set's - to the other set's +. Do this on both subs and you will have the coils wired in series making each sub 4ohms. Now to hook the subs together you'll need to wire them in parallel. Now since you have your coils in series, on each sub you have one + terminal and one - terminal left. So run a wire from the + terminal remaining on each sub, and run them to your amp. Splice the ends of the two wires together and plug them into the + speaker output of the amp. Connect the two negatives in the same way and plug them into the - port on the amp. You will now have your amp running at its desired 2ohms. When wiring this disconnect the fuse on your amp power wire to avoid short problems. And if you get confused at all, and aren't sure what to do, ask again don't guess, if its done wrong you could severely damage your equipment. Hope this helped, enjoy the bass...

Wiring into walls


Okay, here's the verdict. No such din connector for the Bose AM15's exist. I thought I would take another look to see if anything had changed since I had looked last. Once again, all is the same and it makes using standard wiring a pain. However, it is possible to do what you want to do, which I assume is a nice clean install. I have rigged many of these systems, and, here's what I do.

First, the biggest pain is the 25' LFE cable. Shortening it is a pain because the wires are thin and dificult to splice. Lengthening it isn't a great idea either because you want to keep the cables as short as possible. However, a lesser of 2 evils exist and that is to keep this cable whole. Before you begin, peel the LFE cable from the buch untill it is separated from the bundle. Next, peel the speaker wire for each speaker so the pos and neg for each speaker is together, but, separated from the bundle. Then you'll place the sub where you intend it to go, plug in the 13 pin din (I even looked at vga options...nada) and stretch the cable to the wall and cut one speaker wire at a time (+ and -) being CAREFULL to mark which wire is positive and which is negative after the cut. DO NOT cut the LFE cable, and make sure you give yourself an extra foot or so before you cut the wires.

Once the cuts are complete and you have labeled pos and neg for each wire, you may strip the wire and plug into your regular speaker wire wall plate (banana or clips). On the reverse side of the plate, attatch the pos and neg to the plates making sure everything is consistant. Then, run the wires to your receiver (or vise versa). Regular speaker wires typically distingush pos from neg through some sort of marking on the wire housing.

The other cable you will run is the sub (LFE cable). If you want to just drill a hole in the wall and stuff the cable in and run it to the receiver, that's one way, but if you want to keep it clean, use a single RCA connection wall plate. Then, to minimize loss of LFE sound, run a TV coaxial cable from the sub to the receiver and terminate both ends with RCA terminators.

Once the wires are run to the receiver, double check that all the speakers are hooked into the sub and the wiring is complete. Take a AA battery and mark the location of the speaker that corresponds to the wire. In other words, with the speaker wire, hold one end to one side of the battery and the other end tap lightly to the other side of the battery. You will hear a crackle or pop locating the speaker the wire goes to. Once this is identified, label the wire and plug into the appropriate output making sure the pos and neg are consistant.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so, I drew a diagram and will attach it to this forum asap. Good luck and have a blast!

Amp works on other subs, not on mine


Hello adeisenroth,

Sounds like the voice coil(s).

First make sure that the braided wiring going from the sub cone to the voice coil(s) have not come loose. Examine the braided wire all the way from the terminal to the cone. If one or more has come loose, it can sometimes be resoldered. Just be careful with the heat.

If all the wiring is intact, you can check the coils with a multimeter. With the sub disconnected, and the meter set to the lowest resistance scale, test across the speaker terminals. Depending on how the coils are wired you should measeure somewhere between 1 and 4 ohms. If you get "0" or no reading at all, one of the coils is open. If you get "infinity", a coil is shorted. Sometimes only one coil is bad and you can still use the sub, wiring it to the remaining coil only. Once you have determined that one set of coils is either open or short, you can remove the jumper and test each coil individually.

You can test most any speaker voice coil with a small battery. The best to use is the 9V type that has terminals right together. Connect a short piece of speaker wire to the sub terminals, and hold the other end of the "+" wire to the positive battery terminal, then quickly touch and remove the negative battery terminal with the "-" wire. The sub cone should move outward, and you should hear a brief thump. If no cone movement, and no thump, the coil is defective. Do not hold DC to a speaker for any period of time though, just touch and remove. And NEVER use a high-current battery, like a car battery for such a test. If the coil is not already bad, high DC current will damage it.

Either short or open, replacing a voice coil is a job for the Rockford-Fosgate professionals.

i can make this relatively simple.
2 stages:
Stage (1) wiring the Sub inside the box;
Unscrew the SUB from the Box, (& undo the wires)
Connect both +Positive terminals on the SUB to the +Positive terminal on the inside of your BOX.
Connect both -Negative terminals on the SUB to the -Negative terminal on the inside of your Box,
Then screw the SUB back into the Box.
u Have just wired yr sub in parallel. any Amplifier will see it as 1woofer with 1OHMs resistance.

Stage (2) bridging your amp
(please check Amplifier instructions on which terminals to use)
generally you use "LEFT -Negative" and
"Right +Positive"
and connect to the corresponding terminals on the Sub Box.
Hope that helps someone.

How do I hook up amplifier?


Well make sure you have enough power wire, remote wire, RCA's make sure they are long enough as well. Now depending on wattage the amp can kick out determins on the power wire size. Run a wire bout a foot from the battery + terminal and add a in-line fuse (once again depends on the power of the amp) now run the rest of the power wire to the back. (along with the remote wire and RCA's) Now hook up your RCA's on the sub output, (If no sub output hook up to the rear) this will connect to your amp RCA's input. Now for the remote wire, wire it up to the BLUE remote wire or power intena, this will go to your remote terminal on the amp. from thier all thats left is your speaker... Hope this was helpful

How should I wire my 3 subs to 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.

SOUND Q SERIES
DUAL 6-OHM CONFIGURATION
Accommodating the rising trend of triple-subwoofer applications, Audiobahn’s Sound Q subwoofers come in dual 6-ohm configurations. This allows three Sound Q subwoofers to be wired in a 1- or 4-ohm operation. You now have the option to use a wider range of amplifiers to fit the needs of your specific application.

MULTI-CONNECT LUG LOCK TERMINALS
Audiobahn’s patented Multi-Connect Lug Lock Terminals offer increased versatility in wiring multiple subwoofers to an amplifier or to another voice coil. Multi-connect terminals allow you to use single wire connections in each terminal rather than combining multiple wires into one terminal. This feature allows you to use a full 8-gauge wire in each terminal.

COMMON FEATURES
Dual 6 Ohm VOICE COIL
Multi-connect Lug Lock Terminals

The Link below should answer all your questions.
Also remember to try to keep the lengths of the jumpers the same. I would make all the connections inside the box then use the teminal block of the box to connect to the amp.
Keep in mind that you can only get 1 Ohm if you use 3 woofers.
Your configuration allows for 1.5 Ohm
