If you are wanting to run them bridges, I'm going to assume each voice coil is 4 ohms, then what you want to do is as follow


+1 -2


+3 -4


So on the diagram here, I know its silly, but you'll hook a wire from lead 3 to 1, that will bridge the positive side dow. Then you will hook a wire from lead 4 to lead 2. From lead 1 and 2, run your speaker wire to the terminals on the box. Now if you have a mono block amp, its not going to affect. If you have a 2 channel amp that is bridgeable, be careful. Some amps are not 1 ohm stable. Try and see. Good Luck.

I have 2 10" Kicker Comp Subs


That amplifier is only rated at 150 watts at 4 ohms, or 300 watts at 2 ohms. Not a very strong amp to run 2 kicker comps. My guess is you have the subs wired wrong for your application. There are 2 types of subs, one is a dual 4 ohm, and one is a dual 2 ohm. Most people bridge these coils together and that cuts your ohms in half. For example. Lets say you have the 10cvr104 subs. Thats the dual 4 ohm sub. You wire the coils together in parallel, now its a 2 ohm sub. You have 2 of these subs running off of your amp, if they are hooked up in parallel, now you have a 1 ohm load, out of the amplifiers normal operation. Your amplifiers internals heat up really quick and there is a thermal overload, putting your amplifier into circuit protection mode. My suggestion for wiring your subs is as follows: for each speaker, wire the coils together like this- positive coil1 to negative coil 2 and negative coil 1 to positive coil 2. That is called running in series, and doubles your ohm load. Next, we need to wire the speakers together properly to hook up to your amplifier. For this, since the coils are hooked together, you only need to use one set of terminals from each sub. And take the positive from sub 1 and hook it to positive of amp. Take negative sub 1 and hook it to positive of sub 2. Take negative of sub 2 and hook it to negative of amp.

I need help hooking my kicker cvr 12 to my direct 600 amp


Is the sub a single voice coil or dual???? If its a single, just bridge sub to amp....(+ of one channel and the - of the other) amp should show where to bridge with a diagram near speaker outs. If its a dual voice coil, then run one voice coil to the left channel and one voice coil to the right.

Need help.. I have two 12 inch dual voice coil kicker comp vrs.. they are 4 ohm subs..how do i wire them to get a final ohm load between 1.5 to 4ohms in a dual enclosed box...Im hooking them up to a jl 500...


To do this they MUST be wired in parallel, IE: Plus to Plus, Negative to Negative. 2 4 OHMS in parallel is about 2 OHMS in series it would be 8 OHMS... series is positive to negative. Are you using a crossover network?

Cut out


Do you have ONE pair of 12's? Are they single voice coils? Dual? Bottom line, you are either over driving the amp (bass controll up high on the head unit (stereo), or the "load" on the amo is too low, meaning 2-12'" dual voice coils parreleled would give you a 1ohm load. Need more info, need to know what the bass is set on on your stereo, what size power wire to the amp, and I can wrap up the solution. ok?

Take care,
