Yes you do have to because there is a cross over in the speaker which needs to have both the connections done what u can do is get some short wir and hook it up to both "one to negetive, and one to possitive..." then hook it up regularly like you would do any other time." and place one set of the speaker wire coming out of the stereo and hook up each to corasponding negative and one positive,, "shown as neg "-" or pos as "+"

I have 2 audiobahn 12 inch 500 watt awc12t dvc woofers with 2 pos and 2 neg hook ups on each side of the speakers like this (- -) (+ +) and the same on opp side i need to know how to wire them to each...


OK. Sometimes manufacturers put two flat prongs to each of the positives and negatives of the voice coils. This allows for daisy chaining multiple subs to be easier. Here is how you want to wire your subs in the box.

From the positive post of the box to the positive posts of both voice coils (just choose one prong on each of them, you do not have to connect all 4 of them). So you will have 2 wires going from one post on the box to 2 posts on the sub. Got it. Not go from the negative post on the box, to both negative posts on the subs. Repeat this with the other sub. Now you can hook each channel of the amp to the box regularly pos of amp to pos of box and neg of amp to neg of box.

This set up is called parallel and will drop the ohms resistance of two 4 ohm voice coils to a 2 ohm load. You will get 2 ohms for each sub, thus connecting one sub to each channel. This will allow you to get the max power out of the amp or 150w RMS per your post. Hope this helps.

I need to hook up two audiobahn A1200Q subs to a A1300hcq amp


The amplifier is only stable to 2 ohms.
Assuming the cubs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils - a 2 ohm load with 2 subs is not possible.
You can only wire up 1 dual 4 ohm voicecoil sub (both positives to amp... and both negatives to amp) to get a 2 ohm mono load.

No sound protection light on.


Either blown subs, or bad amp.. Disconnect the subs, and try turning the amp on, if the amp is still in protect then your amp is bad, if the protect light goes off, then your subs are bad, or possibly wired at to low of an impedance, but I don't think that will trigger the protect on an Audiobahn amp.

I have a audiobahn a400t and im running 2-12''jh45 mtx jackhammers the speakers are wired in parallel stabel @ 2or1 ohm. the speakers are in a ported box. how do i run my wires to my hook these up right to...


Hello rattle822,

A pair of JH4512-04's can be wired to 2 ohms if the subs themselves are paralleled. There's only one voice coil and it's 4 ohm. If wired in series, the final impedance to the amp would be 8 ohms. They cannot be wired to 1 ohm.

In bridged mode, your 4-channel amp is only stable down to 4 ohms. You can bridge 2 of the channels to provide a relatively low 200 watts RMS X 2. The best power solution for your subs would be to bridge channels 1 and 2 and wire one sub to it. Likewise, bridge channels 3 and 4 and connect the other sub. If you connect both subs in parallel, the impedance will be too low causing the amp to overheat and possible fail.

As for the settings: Low pass filter on, crossover somewhere between 80-100, input levels to match your receiver, and bass boost to your personal preference.

Hope this helps.

Audiobahn 12' subs and audiobahn amp


First thing is first. What subs do you have? Audiobahn makes several kinds of 12" subs. What model sub do you have?
Without knowing this, it would be hard to recomend an amp without knowing how much power your sub can handle. Audiobahn makes from very power amps that can put out up to 5000W RMS, but if your sub can not handle that power, then you will blow your sub.

Status light red


You may have your subs hooked up to it wrong. Either way the amp is definitely blown. Have a stereo shop check it out and examine your wiring.

SOUND Q SERIES
DUAL 6-OHM CONFIGURATION
Accommodating the rising trend of triple-subwoofer applications, Audiobahn’s Sound Q subwoofers come in dual 6-ohm configurations. This allows three Sound Q subwoofers to be wired in a 1- or 4-ohm operation. You now have the option to use a wider range of amplifiers to fit the needs of your specific application.

MULTI-CONNECT LUG LOCK TERMINALS
Audiobahn’s patented Multi-Connect Lug Lock Terminals offer increased versatility in wiring multiple subwoofers to an amplifier or to another voice coil. Multi-connect terminals allow you to use single wire connections in each terminal rather than combining multiple wires into one terminal. This feature allows you to use a full 8-gauge wire in each terminal.

COMMON FEATURES
Dual 6 Ohm VOICE COIL
Multi-connect Lug Lock Terminals

The Link below should answer all your questions.
Also remember to try to keep the lengths of the jumpers the same. I would make all the connections inside the box then use the teminal block of the box to connect to the amp.
Keep in mind that you can only get 1 Ohm if you use 3 woofers.
Your configuration allows for 1.5 Ohm
