You would definitely want to use both sets of wires; especially if you are wanting to get the best quality out of your subs. What subs are you planning to run on it anyway.? I'm going to research your amplfier some more. Do you happen to know the RMS of your amp? Keep me posted. I'll do the same. ;)

    Your wires on the amp are color coded with + as a stripe and solid color for -, correct? Most amps run at 2 ohm stable, so that would be your best bet to avoid frying anything. You can email me at computeranalyst@live.com

I have a boss rt645 2ch 1400 watt amp would this amp properly push a pair of 12 inch mtx terminators.


That all depends on the wattage of the subs. also the independance of the subs. If your amp is 1400 watt, maximum you want is 2 600watt subs. if your subs are higher you will blow your amp eventually as your amp isnt powerful enough to pump out to that level.You should never have your amp fully turned up to max, 80% is perfect and will not make your amp blow. Hense why you want your subs less than the max output of your amp.

How to calculate impedance in multiple speakers.


The ohms value is determined by the equation product /sum if the speakers are parallel,and addition if they are in series.
For example, you have two 4ohm speakers,and they are hooked up +to+ and _ to _. it will create a 2ohm load.The product or multiplication factor is 4x4 divided by 4+4.
16ohms divided by 8 equals 2 ohms.

A series configuration is different : if two 4ohm speakers are in series,where the _of one is connected to the + of the other,you have to add the two values hence 4+4 will make 8ohms. When you reduce resistance,you draw more current and create more wattage as long as the amplifier can deliver that current.A higher resistance draws less wattage,but will not shut down the amplifier.
Unless an amplifier is designed to drive a 2ohm load,it will shut down or burn out.Always follow the recommended speaker impedance.

Just bought 2 12 in d3 dual 2 ohm subs with d5 600.4 amp. Need to know how to wire subs. They were in a box already I assumed they were wire at 2 o When i hooked One up to my amp it hit really for Jus...


what wattage are the subs and amp? if your subs are more wattage than your amp, your amp will blow fuses as cant handle the output to your subs. for example. you have 2 500 watt subs and a 300 watt amp, that is no good as amp isnt powerful enough. if you have 2 500 watt subs you need at least a 1200 watt amp to power them both. 200 watt more than the combined wattage of subs as amps should never be turned up to max as they tend to blow and overheat more quickly. 80% volume on amps is reccomended by installers and manufactures.

Why do i need to open my gain up to 3/4 to full turn inoder to achieve a loud bass?Im using punch 2400 amp and 2 12" kicker.


the amp may not be powerful or your setting on the cd player is not right try adjusting the cd player. turning the gain all the way up will damage your subs even go above halfway

Kicker zx650.4 amp turned off and on


could be a couple of things going wrong. could have overheated and shutdown to protect it. could have hand to many incoming wattage/voltage from your head unit and shutdown. could be that the ohms rating on your speakers is to low or that the speakers could have heated up and bumped the guilds and caused it to shutdown. don't know if you know how ohms works. but here is an exp. if you have and have that is rated at 4 ohm stable and that is the lostes ohm recomened for it. and you have two 4 ohm rated subs. you can run them and run them with no problem as long as you don't bridge them. run them off of the same port on the amp. when bridging them it devides the ohms in half. so 2 4ohms would become 2 ohm. 2 8ohm would become 4 ohm etc. if you are running 4 speakers in pair that are 8 ohm each the total together would be 2ohm. hope this helps. try to duplacate the conditions that was going the other day when it shut down same bass settings same song etc and see if it happens again if so try unhooking one of the speakers and try it again if it don't do it it was overloading it if it was overloading and you know its right ohms etc. send it in sorry this is so long.

What type of "Gauge" wires should I be using for the Kicker ZR600 AMP (Power cable, ground, Speaker wire)?


Hi there,

The lower the gauge, the thicker the wire.
You want multi-strand, not solid. This has better conductivity and less resistance over distance.

10 to 8 gauge will be able to handle anything that particular amp needs.

Remember an in-line fuse on the power cable as close to the battery as possible.

The speaker wire doesn't really need to be anything special

Sound good? Pun intended

Best regards
Mike

Amp worked then went on protection..


Make sure your speakers ohm levels are compatible with the amplifier. The amp is shutting itself off to protect from damage. Your amp may be setup to work with 8 ohm speakers and if you are using a 2 ohm sub-woofer it will stress out the amplifier. Some factory speakers are rated at 3 or 2 ohms. And if you have more than one speaker hooked up per channel that can stress out the amplifier. Also make sure all the speakers you are using are rated at the same ohms. Make sure all the speakers are wired the right way...+ to + and - to -. If some speakers are not wired with the positive speaker wires to the positive connection on the speaker and negative the same this can cause problems with the amp. Also make sure your power wire to the amp is large enough gauge for the amplifiers power requirements. Otherwise the amplifier might have an internal short or just cannot output the wattage needed for your system.

I have a kenwood kac-8452 4 channel amp that makes the speakers pulse after the volume gets turned up to 10. I also have a kenwood amp doing the same thing with my subs. any ideas?


Its not pulsing, its called clipping. The sound is being clipped due the amp being pushed past is power capacity and distorting the signal. This will damage your speakers very quickly. No amp should be turned more then 3/4 up. If its not loud enough you need to purchase a larger amp or be comfortable with the wattage it produces at 3/4 volume. You may also have speaker wires touching/crossed causing th issue.

Why doesnt my 2400 watt amp turn on?


The size of the wire affects the performance of an amp, but the amp should still turn on. 12 volts is 12 volts. So you tested with another amp, on the same wires, and it works fine.The only thing you can really check on the new amp is the fuses in the side. If those are blown, then you should be able to (Unless the amp is fried, and that's why it blew the fuses in the first place) fire it right up. If the fuses arent blown, and you have all your power, and ground, and still nothing.. Well then in that case the amp is just bad, and regardless of the wattage, you just don't fix a Pyle amp.

No sound


What size subs are you running? Also what wattage are the subs that you want to use? Also what I would do is to start out with a smaller speaser just something like a 6x9. Just enough to hear sound. From there I would make sure that all cables and wires are hooked up accordingly. DO NOT BRIDGE CONNECTIONS until you have verified that you get sound out of each channel. I have a 1200 watt amp in my car and do not have a cap in it. It seems to be fine. The only thing that a capacitor is good for is if you decide to use you system with out it running.
