So you take Sub A's positive and connect it to Sub B's and then Sub A's negative to Sub B's negative, found a pic to help explain

I have the xterminator 2000d amp and I am wanting to wire two 12s and one 15 to the one amp. Both Kicker speakers are 4 Ohm SVC. Am I able to do this safely?


Wire the two kickers in Parallel, this will half the resistance of 8 ohms to 4 ohms and match the 15" speaker on the other channel.

I have a 8 0 4 phonix gold amp and two 12s i blew the 12s and i bought some but they are 4 ohm how should i wire them?


You will have to wire each sub to an individual channel. you cannot bridge the amp, because it is not stable at 2 ohms. You could bridge it if you wire the subs in series, but you will get more power by committing each sub to an individual channel.

Amp and speaker wiring


if the 12's are single 4 ohm coils then i would run them parrelle to the amp bridge to one channel. this will be 2 ohms bridge and will be the best and most power.

How to wire a 2400w amp to 3 12s subs


if the amp is a 2 channel, u could either bridge them all, or if you wanted to, you could hook 2 speakers to the two seperate channels, and then hook the other one to the negative on one channel and the possitive on the other. if this wasnt what you meant, just, try to tell me more about the amp... thanks

Amp turns off


You did not specify the model you have - however the Flex series is only stable with a load of 4 ohm mono (bridged) and 2 ohm (stereo).
You are driving the amplifier to work too hard, and it is shutting itself down.
Re-wire using one subwoofer (bridged) or wiring the subwoofers on seperate channels.

Running 4 12s with two insignia 1000 watt amps


Use a pair of two-channel amps that are two-ohm stable, and wire a pair of subs to each amp. Wire them in parallel so the amps see two ohms (wiring in series will show four ohms). Doing this effectively "doubles" the power of the amps. If the amps are not two-ohm stable, they'll fail. Parallel wiring means putting the positive wire of sub 1 to the positive terminal of channel 1 on the amp, and the negative wire of sub 1 on the negative terminal of channel 2. Do the opposite for the second sub. This will give you a LOT of bass response as long as your sub enclosures are properly sized for the speakers.

High distortion


The head unit may be rated at 200 watts but it cannot produce more than ~20 watts of real power per channel. There's no way that it can drive the high end speakers to a level that will be needed to compete with the subs on a 1000 watt amplifier.
