    Found some more information on your amp.



    Here's the link. Basically says you'll need a Y-cable.

    I believe this will be even better for you!



    Here's the information you need though. Not much information on your amplifier. Hope this helps! This person designed and manufactured them.

Wats the best way to hook up 3 hifonic hfx12d 12s. Dvc 4ohmd to a 2 channel 2600 watt planet audio. Amp is 2 ohm stable.


Wire each sub 8 ohms(sieries) than connect them in parallel, bridged @ amp, final impedence will be 2.6 ohms.

Hifonics colossus-ltd dual monoblock amp does not have much output, running a cerwin vega stroker dual 2 ohm sub wired 4 ohm load bridged


Bridge at 4ohms your only getting 600watts rms. You will need to bridge at 1ohm (parallel) and adjust the gain accordingly. This will give it 1600 watts rms. If you would of had a dual 4ohm sub, then you could of bridged it at 2ohms mono, but you can't you have to go either 1 ohm or 4ohm. I believe it's not getting enough power.

My system is running hot!!!!!


your subs are the problem, not your amp, your wiring your subs paralelle, means dropping input ohmage, allowing your amp to over heat with minimal load, check the amp specs for running at low ohms, most hifonics amps are rated 2 ohms and higher, some however will run at 1 ohm, only on class b-a amps though.(competition) dropping ohmage will allow the amp to push more power to the voice coils, however the voice coils may not be rated for 1 ohm power, what ohmage are your coils rated at? do you have a min. of 100 amp inline fuse on your 1-0 awg wire? do you have internal fans? you can add mosfets to the amp but if you do so, you'll have to re-program your amps mother board.

Wiring options


Hello chino2g,

For 3 DVC 4 ohm subs wired to a 2 ohm stable amp, your best option would be to wire all of the sub voice coils in series (individual 8 ohm loads) and then parallel the three subs for a final load of 2.67 ohms. There's really no other configuration. Here's the wiring diagram:

I Have 2 12inch jl audio subs and 1 800 watt kenwood amp and its just not enough boom, so was thinking about installing another amp (performance teknique ) but not sure how to wire it all up......n e help...


How is it wired now? One amp with individual wire to the two subs in stereo mode? What are your plans? Are you adding a matching amp or just buying a larger one to replace the one you have?

HiFonics txi4008 not working, partially lighting up


Sounds like your amp has some power supply compents shorted out. Maybe some of the power mosfets are shorted and your only getting a little bit of power. That why only the H is lighting and as far as the green light, it don't take much for it to turn on. If it was major it would go into protect mode but it is'nt. I repair amps for a living and I'm the cheapest you'll find. But if you know about electronics and think you can take a crack at it, check it out. Becareful you could do more damage. Let me know if your interested. skinnman33@gmail.com

I have 2mb quart 15's 2ohm sub and a hifonics bxi1608d amp


The two 2ohm subwoofers can only be wired to a 2ohm or 8ohm load. You are gonna want them wired 2ohms on a monoblock amplifier. the other option is to wire each sub to 4 ohms (series) and then connect each one to a separate channel on a 2 channel (stereo) amplifier. go for an amplifier that produces up to the MB's RMS rating and make sure they are enclosed in a box to their specifications and they should pound.

3 amps 2 subs sound system for car, need wiring help


As i read your problem i can recommend you that connecting each of the hifonics amp to each hifonics sub with the same specs by getting the specs in interfacing the two or you can simply look to the output of the amp and the input of the sub and find a suitable plug that fits to them.

In the case if you want to run each hamp to individually run each sub but sharing 3 farad capacitor: what i can suggest is that you connect in parallel one connecting wire of each input or ouput of the amp or sub. Its like connecting a connector from each of the input or output of the amp or sub to one leg of the capacitor, and connecting two wires to the other leg, one is being connected to the amp or sub and the other wire is connected to the other amp or sub.

In the case of putting a circuit breaker at the car battery: what i can suggest is that you find an appropriate circuit breaker that fits the specs of the car battery then connect it in series on the positive supply or read the specs of the circuit breaker before you connect it to the battery. Having a circuit breaker is like having a fuse but with special advantages in favor of the circuit breaker.

In the case of having power to the amps you can run one power wire to the amps by dividing the power wire into two, one connected to the amp and the other wire to the other amp. Then you can connect each amp and sub in series individually by connecting one wire b/w amp and sub. I hope i solved your problem
