I have 2 different subs in one box, a 12" MTX thunder and a 12" Kicker CVR. the kicker is a dual voice coil while the MTX I dont believe is. Can I use one amp for this set up? And how would it be wired?


im guessing both speakers are 4 ohms ..mtx 4ohms and kicker dual 4ohms..now if your amp can go down to 1 ohm wiring the kicker dual coils in parallel (2ohms) and the mtx connected together (4ohms) should leave you with a final impedance between 1 and 2 ohms ...i suggest you use one or get another

How do you hook up the speaker wire to the ab sub out and what is the best way to hook them up at what ohm


Not sure what you mean by AB but being that this is a monoblock or 1 channel amplifier you can only hook it up 1 way. Verify the polarity from your speaker box. + to + and - to -. As far as your impedance is concerned this amp is stable to 1.5 ohms but for this case we will assume you have two 4 ohm subwoofers. When you parallel these together you will have a total effective load of 2 ohms on the amplifier. This is a stable operating impedance for the amp.

Other impedance options are:

two 8 ohm speakers = 4 ohm load
three 8 ohm speakers = 2.66 ohms

If you have dual voice coil subwoofers then parallel the coils on each sub + to + and - to -. Depending on the impedance of each sub you may then have to wire the individual subwoofers in series. Here is an example.


2 dual voice coils with 4 ohm taps

Each subwoofer with the coils in parallel would be a 2 ohm load if you were to then parallel the two subwoofers together you would have 1 ohm total load on your amp. This is BAD for your amp. Your option is to run the subwoofers in series.

To run the speakers in series is simple. The + from one speaker and the - from the other will be connected to the amp. The other + and - from the speakers will be connected together.

Here is a wiring diagram from kicker.

How do i wire a 8 ohm kicker comp 10" sub inside the box? and what is the best way to get more bump with a 600 w mtx amp and kicker comp 10" sub?


Ok, for an 8 Ohm sub, it is advisable to get another 8 Ohm sub. wire them in parallel down to a 4 Ohm load. You would wire both + wires together, and both - wires together to yield a 4 Ohm load at the amp. Majority of the amplifiers on the market are designed to give more power at a lower impedence, or Ohm load. You just have to make sure that your amp will take a 4 Ohm load. Without knowing the model of the MTX amp, I can't give more advise. However, this should be able to give you and idea of where to start. The main problem is that you have a single 8 Ohm sub in the Kicker Comp.

I got two DUAL 2omn speakers and i just need to know best way to wire them for a mono block amp. i have them wired parrallel in the box


With 2 speakers wired in parallel, the impedance will be halved, so you are presenting a 1 ohm load to your amp.
Many amps can drive a 1 ohm load, but not all of them. Check the specs for your amp.

If it can't drive a 1 ohm, then you'll need to rewire them in series. 2 speakers wired in series will double the impedance, so you'll present a 4 ohm load when they're wired that way.

Wireing two dual 4 ohm kicker cvr 15s on a memphis pr1000 at a 1 ohm load. I trying to get these kickers to hit harder. Do I need a bigger amp or what?


CVR series do not have large power handling capabilities.
Your subs will melt before the amplifier is used to its full potential.
If the subs arent in a ported enclosure - do that.
They both handle 500w rms - so the pr1000 is perfect.
bass response is all in the enclosure!

I have an Audiobahn A8000T amp and 2 12" Kicker CVR (DVC) Dual voice Coil. The Subwoofers are 2OHM a peice. What is the best way to hook this all up to run a 2 OHM load to my subs?


This is a link to Kicker for your CVR12 Subs...if you have the 2 ohm version (2 ohms per voice coil) and you have 2 speakers ....you will need to wire EACH speakers voice coils in series to get 4 ohms from each speaker and then wire the 2 speakers in parallel.....as in....2 ohms in series with 2 ohms = 4 ohms....both speakers wired same way, then in Parallel with each other = 2 ohm load. Page 2 of this link gives examples of both series and parallel wiring of your speaker.

Logic soundlab cpx1400 need to wire to a kicker cvr 15


Hello discrete01,

The Kicker model number 07CVR122 has dual 2 ohm voice coils, and can be wired for either 1 ohm or 4 ohms. Model number 07CVR124 has dual 4 ohm voice coils and can be wired for either 2 ohms or 8 ohms.

Kicker's wiring page is here: http://www.kicker.com/dvc_wiring

If you have the version with 2 ohm voice coils, you want to use the 2nd diagram for a final load of 4 ohms to the amp. The 1 ohm load is too low for the amp and will cause it to overheat and possibly fail. If you have the 4 ohm version, use the wiring shown in the 3rd diagram which is a perfect match for the amp.

Hope this helps.

Amp 4 a Kicker S17L7


just make sure your kenwood amp can at least handle a 2ohm stereo load.Most amps now are able to .Your amps manual should list this or go online and check for that model .You basically have 2 subs in one allowing you to use one sub box in stereo mode.And just hook it up like two speakers left and right ..make sure amp has a crossover so that you only get bass at your woofer

How do i wire 10' kicker cvr


dual 2 or dual 4

dual 2 wire vc's in series for a 4 ohm load each. Hook each speaker seperate channels on the amp.

dual 4 wire vc in series for an 8 ohm load each. Hook both + to the right + on the amp and both - to the left - on the amp. or

dual 4 wire vc in parallel for a 2 ohm load each and hook each speaker to seperate channels on the amp.

Wiring my kicker solo-baric 15's


The best you can do is connect the dual 2 ohm voice coils of each respective sub in series (4 ohms total per sub) and then connect each sub to one channel of the amp. This will give each sub 1000W, which is the rated maximum from Kicker.
