You should run the voice coils in series so you would load your amp with 3 ohms.

Whats the best way to wire an mtx thunder152 to an jl audio 12 w3-d6 duel voice coil sub


Take both positive leads to the positive of the amp. Both negatives from the sub to the negative of the amp. Utilize the bridged output connections. This would present a 3 ohm load which would be around 100 watts rms (rough estimate)

On a lanzar 535n 5 channel 3200 watt amp what is the best way to hook up 2 lanzar max 12 inch duel voice coil subwoofers


If your amp allows it hook the the sub's to the first two channels but bridge it and only run it on 2ohms so you don't blow your sub's

How do i wire alpine swr1243d subwoofer


There are a couple different ways you can wire up this speaker as it is a DVC speaker. Duel Voice coil, it has two + post and two - post. A dual 4-ohm voice coil subwoofer with its coils wired in parallel presents a 2-ohm load to your amplifier. Since an amplifier produces more wattage at a lower impedance, the parallel connection ensures you'll get the most output from your amp.
Series wiring lets you configure multiple woofers to one amplifier at an acceptable impedance. Wire both coils in series for an 8-ohm impedance, and then wire two 8-ohm subs together in parallel for 4-ohm total impedance.
You can wire each voice coil to a separate channel of your amplifier, if you prefer not to bridge your amp. Independent wiring is a nice option if you're wiring two DVC subs to a 4-channel amplifier - one voice coil per channel
Depending on what you are hooking it up to i.e. a mono amp or a bridged four channel amp. I can tell you post to wire exactly if I know how you want to hook it up and what ur hooking it up to.

I need to know how to wire duel voice coil 12


one way if you want to run it off 1 channel is to wire one voice coil to the other making sure +goes to +, and -goes to -,then wire your amp to one of the coils, but i found just running each coil to a seperate channel on the same amp was the best way,

Need help wiring A 15'' alpine type r duel voice coil to a 1400 watt Crunch amp.If this amp is even compatable, When i hooked it up my self the sub made the surge light on my amp come on after like 10min...


That would suggest a short between the pos and neg on the amp, it shouldn't get hot, if the surge light came on it must be a dead short, if you've got a multi-meter check the resistance on the voice coil make sure its not high (like above 1Mohm) or below 4 ohms, Normally the sub will have an impedance of 4 ohms. Have you got another speaker you could test on the amp, any should do, does it get hot with nothing connected? (that would suggest a fault on the amp) is it new?

Finding the best amplifier


Hello sharky75,

That 1600 watt peak power figure for your subwoofer can't tell you what amp you need. You need to know the maximum RMS power the sub can handle. And you need to know the impedance (ohms) of the voice coil(s). JBL GT5 series subs have an RMS rating of 275 watts. The GTO series handles 300 watts. The Power series handles 400 watts. The GTi series handles 700 watts. Some are single voice coil, so the impedance is fixed. Others are dual voice coil allowing you to wire them for different impedance loads.

For maximum performance your amp should be able to provide at or near the same number of watts RMS into the lowest impedance at which the sub can be configured. For example, if your sub is the Power Series Model number P1224, it has dual 4ohm voice coils and can be wired to present either a 2ohm load (parallel) or an 8ohm load (series). You want to wire the voice coils in parallel for the 2ohm load and select an amp that outputs up to 400 watts RMS into 2ohms. The Orion Cobalt CO8001 is just such an amp. If you have one of the GTi Series subs, a better amp would be the JVC Arsenal KS-AR75 which outputs 700 watts into 2ohms.

Hope this helps.

How do i hook it up


On the Sub you have 4 connectors, 2 for each voice coil... Run a jumper wire from One side of the sub to the other. Positive to negative so that now you have one set of connectors free. Doing this will make the sub able to handle more cause you're using both voice coils. Thats how i've always hooked mine up when i have duel voice coil and they always last a long time. If you're gonna bridge the amp, make sure its turned down for about 5 or 6 hours to let the sub break in.

Wiring a sub with duel voice coil


In short yes. And is very common even has its own term called bridged. Taking two channels and making them one. I would hope that you are running a cap. that's going to put out a lot of power and stress on your battery
