Will a Lanzar Vibe 286 4000 watt amp push a power acoustik fubr 12 700 rms 1800 max ....


Yes it should do the job. You will need to wire the sub in series and make sure you have a 4ohm load on the amp. It should be right at around 700 watts RMS @ 12-13 volts.

I just need to know the best way to hook my amp and subs together. i like a lot of bass. i just bought the subs and yhey dont really sound any diffrent. should i get a new amp.


Hello hembreegerry,

If you like a lot of bass, you definitely need to consider another amp. The SP2X-300 is only rated at 170 watts RMS into 4 ohms mono. That would barely be enough to power one small sub. You do not specify what brand and model your subs are, their impedance, or their power handling capacity. But for any subs, your best power solution is to add together the individual RMS power handling capacity and select a monoblock amp that provides close to the maximum at the impedance they will be wired to present. For example, if your subs are 4 ohms and have a maximum RMS of 250 watts, you would want an amp that outputs abour 500 watts into 2 ohms (2 4 ohm subs wired in parallel = 2 ohm load). An ideal amp in that example would be the Alpine MRP-M500 which outputs 500 watts RMS into 2 ohms.

Hope this helps.

Hooking sub up


Hello missywarden,

According to the specifications, the amp is capable of "tri-mode" operation, that is, running normal speakers on the individual channels while also powering a subwoofer in bridged mode.

Your sub needs to be a minimum of 4ohms and should be relatively efficient. I'd look for a sub that has an RMS power range of from about 75 watts up to a maximum of 250 watts.

The sub connects to the leftmost speaker terminal (positive - right channel) and the rightmost speaker terminal (negative - left channel).

It's not going to be a really loud subwoofer. The power is 360 watts RMS which will be shared by the normal speakers and subwoofer.

Hope this helps.

Infinity 1211a @ 2 Ohms


Hello monkey_flea, Your subs will share the amp output. And if you are not careful, you'll end up blowing them. The amp puts out 1300 watts RMS at 2ohms, the subs have an RMS power range of from 75-350 watts, and you'll be driving them with 650 watts each. A better power match would be to series the subs to present an 8ohm final load. This will reduce the output power to a level the subs can handle. Or you could buy 2 more 12.1's and connect them series-parallel for a 4ohm load and each sub would still be getting 325 watts RMS, just about the maximum they are rated to handle. Hope this helps.

Is it enough to power to 12 volge=ahagen 12oowatss dual 4 ohms


your Volfenhag 12" subs are rated at 1200 watts they are only 600 watts rms and the Rockford punch p4004 is only 200 watts rms so the answer is yes it will work but if you get a amplifier that pushes out 500 - 600 watts rms you will love the sound from subs
there is nothing wrong with the Rockford amp it just wont pound out the bass as hard but the good news is you will never blow the subs with it
when buying amps or subs make sure to look at rms rating that is the true power they actually have ie. (sub box says 1200 watt you think powerful but if you divide it in 1/2 you actually get 600 watts rms) don't get me wrong that's a nice rating. for a sub but you will want to match that number with the amps rms rating or lower. The RMS is what makes the car pound the higher the RMS the better
hope this helps

2006 12" Kicker L7 4 ohm


first whats the range in terms of WATTS that your 12" sub can handle in 4 OHMS ? second , lets check the AMP , POWER ACOUSTIK 1800 WATTS , Now thats a lot of power to drive a single 12" sub speaker . your amp is 1800 watts , per channel is around 500 watts , if BRIDGE thats around 1600 watts rms for ONE channel , if your sub can handle that kind of wattage fine , but it will not blow the amp , what it does is shuts down , some kind of protection mode , it will come back on after a minute or so. I suggest to use one channel in stereo mode , or purchase another sub to use the other channel. i hope this helps AJ

Amp getting really hot


well it is getting hot due to the amp drawing and pushing alot of current. try getting lower gage wiring for power to the amp and lower gage speaker wire.

Amp getting really hot


Disconnect the speaker wires and the RCA jacks from the amp.

If it still gets hot, the amp needs to be repaired.

If it doesn't get hot, check the impedance of the speakers and make sure they're wired properly.

If they are wired for the proper impedance, check each voice coil with an ohm meter to make sure none of the voice coils are shorted.
