Sorry wayne2953 but this amplifier isn't stable @ 1ohm loads. This amplifier would be better suited running a pair of 12's, 4 12" subs could run if configured correctly but the subs would be underpowered and probably not sound very good.

Have a avionixx cxd 2800 amp an 2 15 inch solar basics want to wire 1 ohm stable, how can I do it


Usually the amplifier is stable at 1 ohm or it is not. Usually not something you can change. If you are asking how to wire the speakers at 1 ohm that's a different question, but first you have to make sure your amp is 1 ohm stable of course.

Logan, You must be very desperate, to put the same question her for the tenth time. Yes you keep using different words, but it all comes down to the same. I already gave an answer yo one of the questions. I think you should read that. It has not much to do with the power cabling. It has to do with what you are putting on the output.

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.

2 12" dvc subs 2 ohm stable amp


+ on amp output to + on speaker #1 to + on speaker #2. - on amp output to - on speaker #1 to - on speaker #2. This is a parallel circuit....4 ohms in parallel with 4 ohms = 2 ohms. IF it were wired in series....would represent 8 ohm load.

I have 2 positives and 2 negatives on back of my alphasonik sub, do i connect amp to one side or both sides?


Hello gaz69,

Your PSW815 has 2 ohm dual voice coils allowing you to better match the impedance to your amp. Each voice coil is 2 ohms. If you wire them in parallel (both +'s together and both -'s together and then to the amp terminals), the sub presents a 1 ohm load which is too low for most amps. Wiring the voice coils in series (one + to the other - and the remaining + and - to the amp terminals) results in a 4 ohm load.

This link shows the wiring diagram for both options. If you know for sure that your amp is 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #1. If the amp is not 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #2.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to install some L5 kickers 4om and am trying to find out how to do it..


hello, there are many options when wiring in new subwoofers. you need to make sure that your amp is stable on the impeadance you are looking for. just cause the subs are 4 ohms doesnt mean the amp is built to push 4 ohms stable. check the users manual if all matches up take these few things into consideration. typically the lower ohm signal pushed out of the amp is usually the strongest. example if your amp is 1 ohm stable it will deliver more power at 1 ohm than at 4 ohms. a resourcful tool is a website called 12volt.com hope this helps
