I have 2 12" Pioneer TS-W3003D4 subs and I wanted to know can a Pioneer GM-D8500M run them?


pretty much any amplifier can run any sub, so the question is not weather or not the amp can run them, it is how well the amp can run them. Those Pioneer subs are dual VC models and are rated at 600 watts RMS. You have two, so that would be about 1200 watts of RMS power you will need in order to power the subs correctly and to optimum efficiency. The amplifier model you have is rated at 600 watts RMS for a single channel at the lowest stable impendence. That power coming from the amp will be split two ways between the subs and divide the power to each speaker. So each speaker will be receiving 300 watts of power. So in short yes, your amp will power those subs, but they will only be operating at half their rated power. Your amp will be running at maximum power so it might get a little warm after a while. make sure you wire it correctly and keep the amp well ventilated if you decide to push it that hard. if you need help on how to wire them search the web for wiring options by typing into Google " how to wire two dual voice coil subs into amp". There you will find plenty of illustrations to help you decide.

I have two sony xplod 12" speakers wich can hold


You only gave us the model of the amp so I will make an assumption that your 12" subs are the Sony XS-GTX120LW. First, they cannot hold 1200 watts a piece. They are meant to be powered with 350 watts RMS. They will hold 1200 watts peak. That means that 1200 watts for a few seconds will be ok. Past that and kiss them goodbye!

Next you indicated that bridged the amp. Since the subs are both 4 ohm single voice coils did you wire them in series or parallel?

It sounds to me like you wired them in parallel resulting in the amp seeing a 2 ohm load. The amp you referenced is only stable when bridged at 4 ohms.

Has the amp begun working again once it cooled down? If not you could have fried the outputs by having the resistance too low.

How should i wire my sub


if your amp has a bridge do nt bridge the subs just connect them normal planet audio subs usually dont have a high potential to withstand too much watts even if the subs say 1200 watts thats not true nwatts check the box the subs came in it will tell u true wattage it may say rms

How i wire my sub to my jbl gto301-1iiamp with 2 Hifonics HFi12D4


If the amp is 1200 watts at 2 ohm stable you will want to set up the speakers as parrallel and bridge the amp. That means conncect the speakers with + to + and - to -. Look at the amp connections. Usually thereare connects that look like this:
+ -
+ - + -

If yours look like this use the diagram on top. You will use the + for the left ouput on the amp to the right - on the amp. This will allow you to use all the power from the amp. Be sure to lower the gain as to not pop the speakers or amp.

What kind amp should be use for ts-w307d2 subwoofer speaker?


Nice sub, i have 2 308d4s in my car. Okay this sub is a dual coil 2 ohm. so to get best bang for your buck you'll want a 2 channel amp and bridge it. Your sub is 400 watts RMS, So you'll want an amp that has the same rating. I'd recommend the pioneer GM-5400t. Then wire your voice coils in parallel, and bridge your amp, you'll get 380 watts RMS, which is perfect for this sub. If you have questions on wiring or anything you can just ask. thanks, i hope this helps

I am looking to buy a 1200 watt jensen 2 channel amp. what model is this? is there a jensen 1200, i have not seem it.


I would recommend you purchase a brand name 600watt RMS amp instead of a Jensen 1200 watt peak amp. Trust me you will notice the difference. Try a kicker, hifonics, MTX, audiobahn Autotech... Its not the watts its the quality of the watts..

How well will a 1000 watt kenwood amp pump with 2 1200 watt suns


2 will push more air but be careful how they are wired so you dont go to low on the ohms your amp sees.That amp should be 2 ohm stable so read up on how to wire in series or parallel.
