Re: kenwood 350 w-2 amp wiring
You can simply take the input and connect it in parallel to the input of the second amplifier. The output of one amp will go to one speaker, and the output of the other amp will go to the other speaker.
The inputs of amplifiers are "high impedance" so putting more than one in parallel won't put any strain on the radio circuit.

For a 1ohm load it's positive to positive and negative to negative run 1 wire from one speaker to the other. Positive to positive neg to neg. Then 1 wire from the speakers to the amp. The amp will have + - + - on it's inputs for left and right speakers (if stereo) Use the outside positive and outside negative. If there are any switches on the amp that say "mono" "stereo" switch to "mono". Hope this helps
bignatedabal: You can't get something more out of a device than it's rating. In other words, if you have a 400W amp that's all it's going to produce. For example if you're looking to drive both sub spkrs @ 350W each then buy a sub amp with a rating of 700W @ 2ohms & connect your 4ohm spkrs in parallel to the amp. Each spkr will produce 350W of sound if everything is installed correctly.
1 thing to look for in amp mfg's. Look for those who rate their amps in RMS power. This is the true output rating. Many amps are rated in peak-to-peak which seems great but doesn't tell you the real story, unless you know how to do the math to determine the RMS. The better mfg's will take the time to test their amps & rate them properly. Also look for massive heatsinking (the cooling fins). I consider cooling fans to be a benefit as well.
ok i have the same amp and 1 2ohm dvc sub and was woundering the same thing but from futher research and askin sum xsperts. What i found out is that it is only one channel and even tho there are 2 (+) and 2(-) they actually connect inside the amp makein it one . so if u wanted to wire sumthing parralel u wouldnt have to hook wires from one coil to the other on the speaker , u can just hook it up to the amp. so basically both +'s and negatives on the amp are actually one within it so all the power if you only use one set of them and if u wanna add more subs its just easier to add to the amp by using the xtras .
A number of things could be wrong. First off, how do you have the 3 subs wired that will actually give you 2 ohms? For instance, if you had 3 single voice coils and they were each 4 ohms You would be sitting around 1.5 ohms. Or if they were dual 4 ohm subs then you could have wired the voice coils in series then the subs in parallel and came up with about 3 ohms. Unless the kickers have an odd impedence then there is no way you have 2 ohms from the subs to match the 2 ohms at the amp. So what I would do is try to match the impedence as well as I could. Also, make sure the amp is well ventilated. do not screw it directly down to a surface, put some 1/4" spacers on the screws so some air flow can get under the amp also. I hope I could help. Good luck
This amp isn't bridgeable. It's a mono amp (only one channel). You need two independent channels to bridge. Some mono amps are bridgeable if you have two identical amps but I don't think Kenwood recommends that with this amp.
