1 Answer

Hook up i just recieved a phoenix gold octane R4.0:2 amp.. it has been a long time since i have hooked these things up. the question i have is the power supply. it has 3 screw where i hook up the wires. now one screw says b-, the other says b+, and the one in the middle says power. now i kind of figure that the red positive power feed would go in the middle, but where do i hook up the ground?

Click for Manual

If you look closely in the manual (zoom in), there is an R under the word Power. It's the remote turn on.

B- is ground.

How do I hook up this darn Phoenix gold octane r 8.0.1 amp it's supposed to be a monoblock amp but has 2 hook ups 2 positives and 2 negatives I'm thinking that would be to hook up 2 4 ohm speakers to equal...

Most mono amps now a days give you multiple terminals. The older amps were a pain trying to stuff all the wires in one set of terminals. If the amp is rated at 2 ohms mono then make sure what ever configuration of speakers your running does not go below 2 ohms using both terminals. For example do not hook a 2 ohm load to each terminal. 2 ohms period between the 2 sets of terminals.

I have wired everything correctly to my phoenix gold octane 2.5:2 amp and the remote terminal is not working. i have hooked up another amp to check to see if its the remote line and any other problems but...

Perhaps the PG Octane R needs a bit more power on the remote. Check if connectors are well connected to the wire. There might be some resistant present if the connection is not 100%. (oxidation?)

Using JBL 4410 3-Way crossover, trying to use PG 12" Dual 4-ohm

ok, connect the amp positive to the positive end of one sub coil, take the negative of that coil, and run it to the positive of the second sub coil, then run the negative out of the second sub coil to the negative of the amp.

That depends on what impedence the subs are. If they are 4 ohms each then just parallel them to the amp + to + and - to - on both of them that will give you a 2 ohm mono load which is fine for that amp.

Wiring diagram

The LEd wires need a wire run from the speaker to the Fuse block in your car. The small Red wire from the LED will be the one that hooks to Swtiched 12 Volts supply on the fuse block so that your Led Turns on when you turn the keyswitch on. The Black wire goes to ground, or to a metal part of your cars body, probably the same point where your Amp is Grounded.

The Octane R10 is a Single Voice Coil or SVC.
AMP+ to Sub+
Amp- to Sub -
Use 12 guage wire.
