Well make sure you have enough power wire, remote wire, RCA's make sure they are long enough as well. Now depending on wattage the amp can kick out determins on the power wire size. Run a wire bout a foot from the battery + terminal and add a in-line fuse (once again depends on the power of the amp) now run the rest of the power wire to the back. (along with the remote wire and RCA's) Now hook up your RCA's on the sub output, (If no sub output hook up to the rear) this will connect to your amp RCA's input. Now for the remote wire, wire it up to the BLUE remote wire or power intena, this will go to your remote terminal on the amp. from thier all thats left is your speaker... Hope this was helpful

How do I hook up my subwoofer and amp to my ford f150?


to hook up the amp. drill a hole in the firewall, run an 8 or greater gauge cable (greater, depending on the wattage of the subwoofer amplifier) from the battery positive lead, thru the firewall, to the amp power +, and be sure to place an in line fuse within the engine compartment, within a foot of the battery. hook the speaker up, and then run the amplifier negative lead to a bare metal part of the cars chasss, and, finally, hook the amplifier remote power lead to the acc circuit of the interior fusebox (i usually just take the acc fuse out, stick the wire in the acc fuse receptacle, then re-insert the fuse to complete the circuit).

to run the radio signal to the amp, you can use a speaker to line level converter (if stock stereo). just splice them into the stock stereo speaker leads

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.

How do hook up an amplifier and subwoofer to my car stereo?


If your stereo has preamp outputs, I would recommend connecting those to the input RCA connections on the amplifier. The connection from the amplifier to the subs is dependent on the capability of the amp and the impedance/power level of the sub.

I have a 95 nissan maxima i am trying to replace stock radio(bose) w/a new cd player but once its hooked up im not hearing any sound? whats wrong with it?


Most Bose car stereos have an external amplifier. You will need to see if that is the case on your factory setup and remove the amplifier. Then hook the new headunit straight to the speakers.

How do u hook up a dual voice coil subwoofer ?


A dual Voice coil Subwoofer is like having two speakers in one, but the inputs from the amp to the sub must be the same level or you can over-heat the coils. Simply hook the subwoofer to your amplifier as if you had two separate speakers, make sure you get the + and - correct. If there is a level control on the amplifier for Left and Right, be sure to set these at the same level, also if the head unit has a subwoofer output for the amplifier be sure to use this
Hope this Helps GM

Can i wire one speaker to the other speaker inside the box so that i only have one positive and one negative cable wire coming out out of the box and to the amp


Hello... I can help you with this question. Yes it is possible to do this, but you will have to use a 2 ohm stable mono block amplifier in order to do this. By connecting both positives together and both negatives together, you will be running a 2 ohm load. So if your amp is a monoblock amp, connections will be simple as tieing all the positives together and the negatives together and just hook to the amp. If you are using a 2 channel amplifier that is bridgeable, then you will need to series the subwoofers to an 8 ohm load and then bridge the amplifier to 1 channel. The way you series the subwoofers is take the positive wire in the box and hook to the positive on subwoofer #1. Take the negative wire in the box and hook to the negative on subwoofer #2. Then take a piece of wire and hook the negative from subwoofer #1 to the positive connector on subwoofer #2. Then hook the wires to the amplifier. To bridge the amplifier (if it is a 2 channel bridgeable) would be to use the left positive and the right negative, but check the amplifier for markings to confirm this. If you have any other questions, feel free to let me know and I will help you out! Hope this helps!!

How to wire a kicker 15 cvr


175W x 2 @ 2 ohms
350W x 1 @ 4 ohm
Your amplifier is not stable @ 2 ohm bridged. So you will have to wire them independantly on each channel.
+/- on sub to +/- on L channel
+/- on sub to +/- on R channel
Wiring the subwoofers in paallel will result in a 2 ohm load, which your amplifier is not rated to do. Doing so will cause heat buildup, and damage to the amplifier.

Best way to wire the audiobahn eternal


Well, from what I can find, the best you could do is 2 ohm stable. This is only if you have a decent 2 ohm stable amplifier. In order to wire it to 2 ohms you will need to take the positives and hook them together and run one wire to the brigde positive of the amplifier. Then take the negatives and hook them together and run one wire to the bridge negative of the amplifier. Make sure you have a good enough amplifier to run this sub also. I would definately use a mono block amp that is 2 ohm stable and at least 1000 watts. I'm not sure if you have the 10",12", or 15" but 1000 should do it. There is one key that many people miss.......it is just as bad to underpower subs as it is to overpower them. And make sure you get a quality amplifier....if it is a brand new 1000 watt amp and it is under a hundred dollars you are not getting a good amplifier. Amps that I would recommend getting are gently used high end amplifiers, namely Memphis. I'm sorry I've rambled enough, but if you need anymore help just let me know. Good luck
