I take it that you have two woofers to connect. That said, you need to bridge your speakers to your amplifier to get them to really thump. Firstly, check on you amplifier where the bridging connections are, ie. you will have connecting screws for two speakers +-, and +-. There should be a mark indicating the bridged output, normally the first + and the last -. Now, connect the + of your one speaker to the - on the other speaker. The two un used terminals will go to the amp ie. the one - onthe one speaker and the + on the other one.

Got 2 woofers, 2ohm stable each. If I get 1ohm stable monoblock amp, will it split that 1ohm equally in 2ohms for each speaker, or would I have to buy another 2 speakers that r 1ohm stable each?


Connecting the two 2 ohm speakers in parallel will create a 1 ohm load. Connect the positives of both speakers to the plus output of the amp, both negatives of the speakers to the minus output of the amp.

Do you bridge a 850.4 four channel amp when it is 2 ohm stable and ur subs are wired up as series/ parallel and there 2 ohm dual voice coil speakers


If you wire 2 ohm dvc speaker parallel that would give you a 1 ohm load. If your amp is only 2 ohm stable that would not work. You would have to wire the speaker in series giving you a 4 ohm load. Then you can bridge the 4 channels into 2 with each speaker running at 4 ohms.
If you want to run a 2 ohm load use all 4 channels on amp and speakers. No need to bridge.
For 2 ohm DVC:
Parallel = connect both + and - together. = 1 ohm
Series = connect + from 1 channel to - from the other channel. = 4 ohm.

I dont how to run the wire on the back of my alpine type r 1242d


you can connect speakers up any way around ,if its one speaker with 4 connections then these extra 2 terminals are often for a continue through to the next speaker along the line ,.just use a small 9v battery and then connect to two terminals to find a bleep as you touch two of the terminals then you know where to put your wires

I have two audiobahn aw1500 15" subowoofers and i was trying to figure out how to wire them so that they come to 2 ohms. I have a Kicker 400.1 amp that is 2 ohm stable.


What is their ohms at the moment. If they are 8 ohms the will become 4o hms in parallel, 4 ohms will become 2 ohms in parallel. Since your audiobahns are dual four ohms coils one speaker wired in parallel gives you 2 ohms and both wired together in parallel will give you 1 ohms. You will need to wire them in series parallel to to keep two ohms and that is a waste of power. Kickers are good amps, with a little extra cooling the amp should sustain the 1 ohm capability of your parallel connection or trade in for a 1ohm stable amp

I cannot find the right way to hook my TS-W304C Subwolfers up to a mono channel amp.


what amp? the speaker wiring depends on the ohmage rating of the amp. if the amp is 2 ohm stable, then you can hook 2 TS-W304C's up to it, both positive leads from the speakers attached to the amp positive, and both negative speaker leads connected to amp negative. this is called parallel wiring, and it reduces the ohmage (resistance) down to 2 ohms. your speakers are 4 ohms, and 2x4 ohm speakers in parallel makes it equal 2 ohms. if your amp is only 4 ohm stable, then you will only be able to hook up one of your speakers to it.

Is this amp 1 ohm stable


hello alexander490
sorry to say NO. this amp is 2 Ohm stable
BUT
you can put two of the same 1 Ohm speakers in row (serial connection - speaker 1 + to amps +, then speaker 1 - to speaker 2 + and speaker 2 - to amps - ;))
hope that helps a bit

How to bridge two l7 kickers


It depends on the end ohm load you are trying to achieve. If your amp is rated at 2 ohms stable, then wire for 2 ohms, if 1 ohm stable wire for 1 ohm. EX. A dual 2 ohm woofer can be wired with the positive of 1 coil connected to the negative of the other coil, then connect the amp to the other two open terminals. This cuts the load of that speaker down to 1 ohm. When connecting the other speaker in the same manner, the two speakers a 1 ohm each add together to produce a 2 ohm load at the amp. NOTE- a 2 ohm amp running a speaker wired for 1 ohm will not have enough resistance to limit the power coming from the amp and runs a high chance of burning the amp up.

How do wire up a Pyle dual 4 ohm sub woofer speaker, the PLCHW15 3600 watts. Do you wire up both sides or do you wire up one side of the connections?


Hello shannon_e_ha,

Both voice coils need to be connected to the amp.

If you wire the coils parallel (both +'s and both -'s together and then to the amp), the final load will be 2 ohms. If you wire the coils in series (one + to the other - and the remaining + and - to the amp), the load will be 8 ohms. If your amp is 2 ohm stable, use the parallel wiring. If it is only stable at 4 ohms or greater, use the series wiring.

Hope this helps.

How to connect a 2 ohm stable in stereo


ok when getting into wiring and impeadances on car audio one must be careful the wrong impeadance with the wrong amp causes overdriving and it will kill your equipment. check the user manual to see if the amp is 2 ohm stable if it is dictated as stable @ 2 ohm there are multiple ways of wiring the speakers to get the load you want i highly recommend 12volt.com
