Question about Rockford Fosgate Punch 800a2 Car Audio Amplifier

I have a punch 800a2 and 2 jl 12w3 dual 6 ohm, should it be ran as 6 ohm,or i can wire for 1.5 ohm but is this amp stable for 1.5 ohm load? and how should i wire it if i just wanted to bridge it? thnx please help!! :(

Here are the diagrams for running dual voice 6 ohm sub's.

3 ohms per channel or 6 ohms bridged are the only options. 3 ohms per channel is a better option.

You should get the dual 4 ohm version of subs and wire them both in parrallel and series for a 4 ohm load to that amp, Bridge the amp and your subs should be seeing about 960 watts true rms.

It's not 2 ohm 'mono' stable. The lowest impedance loads are 4 ohms in mono and 2 ohms in stereo.

That's dependent on your subwoofers. You will need 2 dual 4 ohm subs wired in Parallel, a single dual 2 ohm subwoofer wired in parallel, a single dual .5 ohm wired in series. Or something similar.

your subwoofer is wired incorrectly to your amplifier. Figure out which ohm load of subs you have and then what ohm load options your amp is stable at. Next go to either the Crutchfield website. find their learning center. go to subwoofer wiring diagrams. or go to www.the12volt.com and find their section on it

depends if its dual 2 ohm or dual 4 ohm

Te dual inputsm are tied together on the output side thus having a "MONO" amp. Most class D anps are stable down to 1 ohm (check your manuel) therefore, 2 2ohm subs are a 1 ohm load. 2 DVC (dual voice coil) 4 Ohm on each voice coil will give each sub a 2 ohm load so 2 dual4 ohm V's will give you a 1 ohm load as well. Parrallel all conections.

What subs do you have? Is this amp 1 ohm ono stable?

You can connect them in a series/parallel configuration. Put two of them in series and then connect the last one in parallel across the two in series. This would give you an impeadance of around 2.7 ohms. Only do this if your amp is stable at 3 ohms or less. I am not familiar with the specs of your amp. If your amp is only 4 ohm stable you can not do this.

This would also give you half the power on the two subs in series as the power for the one that is parallel. The two in series would be sharing the total output signal, where-as the one in parallel would get the entire output signal from the amp.

if you were to connect a fourth sub woofer in this configuration it could give you a 4 ohm load, by adding the fourth sub in series with the single sub that is in parallel. or in other words, yu have two sets of 2 sub woofers each in series. That gives you two 8 ohm loads (two 4 ohm subs in series is 8 ohms). Then you take the two sets of subs and parallel them (two 8 ohm loads in parallel equals 4 ohms).

If i had a picture to show you it would make sense, two subs in series that are in parallel with two subs in series.

your w7 13's are dual 1.5 Ohm, but according to JL website, are 2.41 Ohms when the coils are in series. Each 13 connceted to each amp with voice coils in series is your best bet. The amps are designed to put out the same amount of power from 1.5 to 4 Ohms. If you parallel the voice coils, you end up with .6 Ohms and the amp will go into protect mode. You'll be drawing a lot of current, so you may want to think about 1/0 guage power wire, upgrade the wire from the alternator to battery (usually only 8 guage) and think about multiple batteries.

Ok.. Bridge the two sub into 4ohm than bridge to amp.

So. this how it goes.

sub1 + -

to | |

sub2 - +

= 4ohm

From Sub

Two

- +

| |

amp (L) - + (R)- +

This will use the full potiental of RF 800a2 amp. I believe it like 1153 watts max out.

this is a punch 800a2 older one i believe from around 98 99. chrome 1 with the triangled look to it when end caps are added.
