Yes. When you run two-two ohm subs to a monoblock amp its on the same channel meaning there ran parallel, and that makes it one ohm and most mono-blocks won't read one ohm. Are you popping fuses in the amp?

I am trying to hook up a powered sub woofer to a yamaha rx-v461 and i dont know what cables go where on the back of the sub there are two speaker ports and there are two plug ins but each speaker port has...


Your subwoofer probably has both high-power inputs and "normal"low inputs. The first are for receivers, which don't have link-level output for sub, so they are able to take already amplified signal as input.
You need to use link-level input of your sub and connect it to subwoofer-output of your receiver. The output is marked as OUTPUT - Subwoofer and is black-color RCA plug (don't confuse with subwoofer INPUT under MULTI CH INPUT).
Receiver has only mono output for subwoofer. If your sub has stereo input (white/red RCA plugs), connect just the left channel to the receiver, it will still work.
Don't connect anything to the speaker output on the sub, you don't need that.

NEED TO KNOW HOW TO HOOK UP SUBWOOFER TO RECEIVER


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, most receivers do not have a built-in sub-amp but do have a line level sub woofer out. What is then required is an active subwoofer or an additional mono amp for the subwoofer speaker. The receiver will then be connected through an RCA to RCA cable and the subwoofer speaker connected to the add-on amp.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

two 8 ohm speakers in parallel is 4 ohms.
if series 16 ohms.a high resistance will just produce less power.
too low a number can activate the speaker protect,or blow the amp.
radio shack sell wall mounted speaker controls,but 5 watt max.
the best thing is to run 2 amplifiers.one for in ,2 for out
speaker a and b on the amp parallel the speakers.
if you run 2 sets of 4ohm speakers,the amplifier load will be 2 ohms,and overheat the amp.4 8 ohm speakers,gives a 4 ohm load

Control the volume on each of the 12 bass shakers i plan to install


Please note that you can't simply wire them together in series or parallel. Connecting any more than 2 would likely cause damage to your amplifier. (depending on the impedance of the bass shaker 4 ohms, 8 ohms, etc.)

The Buttkicker brand recommends the following configuration for four buttkickers into one amp: Click here

As you can see, you need a combination of parallel and series connections to make sure the amp is "seeing" the correct load. I'd recommend purchasing three dedicated subwoofer amps (there are some good inexpensive ones at http://www.parts-express.com.

This will give you volume control over each set of four shakers at the amp itself. If you need control at each shaker, the only solution I know if is to use an impedance matching volume control.

Check Parts Express for those, too.

If this solved your problem, please rate it as FixYa. If not, let me know how else I can help you.

Good luck!

Wiring speaker down to lowest ohm


Wiring a single speaker won't change Ohms.

More than one is a different story.

Parallel wiring is what you're looking for:

Say you have two speakers and one speaker wire.
The positive speaker wire is connected to the positive terminal of each speaker. The same for the negative.

Wiring speakers 'Parallel' will lower the overall impedance according to the following formula:

1/Rtot=1/R1+1/R2+etc......

Say your speakers are 4 Ohms.

Then the formula would be:

1/Rtot=1/4 + 1/4

1/Rtot=1/2 (or .5) Now isolate Rtot

Rtot=1/0.5

Rtot = 2 (Try it on a calculator)

So two 4 ohm speakers in parallel reduces the impedance to two Ohms.

If you found this useful, please take a sec and rate this response.

Have fun,

Mike

Two amp


I don't know why you'd set the Peavey to 2 ohm to drive 8 ohm speakers??? My other thought is... I wonder if the phase is correct. try reversing one of the speaker wires Left or right side.

Yamaha RX-V1200 subwoofer connection to Mirage BPS-150i subwoofer


just connect your subwoofer mono RCA to your amp sub single out rca connector. you do not need to megre all those 4terminals into one. in fact internal circuit of those 4rca are merging inside to one since the sub uses only a single amp. 4inputs was meant for sources with multiple sub out

Subwoofer Connection: Speaker wire to Mono RCA


The easiest solution to use your subwoofer is to buy an amp for it. Any old stereo receiver from a garage sale will probably do just fine.
  1. Connect the mono RCA subwoofer output from your Sony with a 1xRCA-to-2xRCA splitter to both the left and right input of the cheap reciever's tape or aux input
  2. connect both speaker outputs of the cheap reciever to the speaker input on your subwoofer. make sure both black (-) outputs on the reciever connect to the black input on the sub, and the red outputs (+) on the reciever are both connected to the red input on the subwoofer.
  3. make sure the cheap receiver's volume is all the way down. turn your Sony up to about the loudest you'll listen to it. turn up the subwoofer amp until it's loud enough to sound good.
  4. leave the subwoofer amp alone, the Sony volume will all you ever need to touch from now on.

You can even now turn off your subwoofer / adjust the volume easily now!
