How to wire the Pioneer Premier 12in. dual 2 ohm voice coil. 1000 watt rms 3500 watt peak, and I have a 1000watt JL audio 2 channell amp, they are both stable at 1 ohm. I wired them parrallel, and it blew it. That amp should have never blown that sub. Opions? Im buying another one, hoping it was just defective. How long should I break it in before I can crank it.

If you have two subs to connect, place the speakers next to each other face down, you will notice that the connection points run in sequence +- and +-. Now connect the - (negative) from the one speaker, to the + (positive) of the other speaker. Now connect the open + from the one speaker and the open - from the other speaker to your amp.
If you have only one speaker it should be bridgeson your amp.
Your amp should have a bridging indication. On the connection points of each channel on the the amp, you should see a mark pointing to the first - and the last +. That will be your bridge

How can I wire a 2 ohm and 4 ohm kicker dual voice coil speakers to a JL 500 1 channel amp


Ok, so you have a single 2 ohm speaker and a 4 ohm speaker with dual voice coils? The JBL Is a 2 Ohm load I believe.


I ran through the maths...

Series parallel with the 4 Ohms in series in parallel with the 2 Ohm gives you 1.6 Ohms

2 x 4 ohms in parallel with a 2 ohm in series gives you 4 Ohms which is no good.

All three in series give you 10 ohms which is no good.

All three parallel gives 1 ohm.

So with this set up you cannot create a perfect match. So you will always run the risk of bad audio or the amp blowing at high output.

How can i connect 2 12''s pioneer premier too an jl audio amp n make the bass loud???


Hello m1k377060,

Having your subs in well-designed and constructed enclosures will make as much or more difference in their output than how you connect them to an amp.

The TS-SW1241D's are single voice coil 4 ohm shallow subwoofers that are rated for 350 watts RMS. For maximum loudness, your JL amp needs to be 2 ohm stable and capable of delivering 700 watts RMS into that impedance. Wire the subs in parallel for a 2 ohm load and maximum power from the amp.

Hope this helps.

Why does the kenwood kac-9103d has two sets of terminals if its a one channel amp so how do i hook up a dual 12 phoniex gold 1200 watt sub to it


Hello damasogrizzl,

The 2 sets of terminals are connected internally. Having 2 sets just makes it more convenient when wiring multiple subs. The amp is rated for 900 watts RMS into a 2 ohm load. The specs claim that it is stable at 1 ohm but does not give a power rating.

The Radial SD competition series from Phoenix Gold are rated to handle up to 600 watts RMS. If you have the model RSdC124 with dual 4 ohm voice coils, it would be best to wire the voice coils in parallel for a 2 ohm load and connect the sub to one set of terminals on the amp. If your sub is the model RSdC122 with dual 2 ohm voice coils, you should wire the voice coils is series for a 4 ohm load and connect the sug to one set of terminals on the amp. Wiring the voice coils in parallel will result in a 1 ohm load. And, while the amp may be stable at 1 ohm, the sub will be seriously overpowered.

Hope this helps.

Ppi dcx 1500.1 is it 2 powerful 4 da 12in. L7?


Hello montyski20,

The amp outputs 500 watts RMS into 4ohms, 750 watts RMS into 2ohms and 1000 RMS into 1ohm.

The L7 can handle 750 watts RMS (375 watts per each coil). If your L7 is the 2ohm version, you should wire the voice coils in series, the positive marked coil to the negative unmarked coil. Then connect the remaining positive and negative to the amp terminals. This gives you a 4ohm load (500 watts). If your L7 is the 4ohm version, wire the voice coils in parallel, both marked and unmarked positives together, likewise both negatives and then to the amp terminals. This gives a 2ohm load (750 watts).

Paralleling the 2ohm sub will result in a 1ohm load (1000 watts) and that is too much for the L7.

Hope this helps.

Wireing diagrams


Hello stingerman20,

Your Directed D2400 amp is CEA2006 Compliant. It is stable at 1ohm and will produce 1,200 watts into that load. So you want your subs wired as close to 1 ohm as possible.

The only 3500 watt Pioneer Premier series subs I could find were the models number TS-W3002D2 and TS-W3002D4 with dual 2ohm and dual 4ohm voice coils respectively. The wiring options for the D2's result in 0.5ohm (too low), 2 ohms, and 8ohms. Your best option would be the 2ohm configuration which would be voice coils in series and subs in parallel. Options for the D4's result in a 1ohm load and a 4ohm load. Your best option would be the 1ohm configuration which would be voice coils and subs parallel.

To see the wiring options, try Rockford-Fosgate's "wiring wizard".
Select 2 woofers and the appropriate voice coil impedance and quantity and click "search". It'll bring up all of the possible wiring configurations along with the final impedance load.

Hope this helps.

What is best amp to run 2 12 inch cvr's


12In Kicker CVRs
are Dual Voice Coil, and You can run each voice coil around 200 Watts RMS

So each sub will have a 400 Watt RMS and 800 Watts peak.

Now since you have 2, Your total will be 800 Watts RMS and 1600 Watts Peak.

I would get really any amp that sits at around 800-1000 Watts RMS.

These are kicker but they are low end so i wouldnt push them to the extreme.

1000-1200 Watts RMS Max and but keep the Gain down on the amp. They will hit no doubt but i wouldnt push these subs or you will be disapointed in the long run.

I would get a Fosgate or MTX amp.

You can get any amp really but find something right around 1000 Watts RMS and it will push those well.

You can go mono block or a 2 channel, just depends on how you want to wire them.

Be careful though. If your running them bridged right now with your mono block, do not run them parallel bridged on a 1000w RMS Amp, you will blow them so fast lol

(RMS = Root Mean Square. Or in other words is the continuous wattage being sent from the amplifier to the subwoffers)

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.

Amp Will Not Stop Overheating


You say you have 2 p312d2 subs. Ok so the d2 stands for dual 2homs (2 X 2homs voice coils per sub) , conecting in parallel the 2 voice coils of only one sub will create 1hom load to the amp, and if your amp is 2homs stable per chanel that means you are lowering too much your homs causing the overhwating to it.
