This amp will not give you 1000 watts of real power. From the specs I've found, it can produce 55w RMS x 4. Bridged, that would be 110w RMS x 2. The most you could get into a dual voice coil woofer would be ~220w RMS.

I have Sony xm-2165gtx amp 165 watt rms x 2 at 4 ohm 200 watt x 2 at 2 ohm 400 watt x 1 bridge output at 4 ohm stereo or bridge mono output 4 ohm stable in bridge mode this mean can't go lower then 4 ohm...


You can't bridge that amp onto a load lower than 4 ohms. So you can't bridge that amp onto two 4 ohm subs. To get the most power out of your subs is easy. Run one channel to one sub and the other channel to the other sub. 165 watts RMS is plenty for most subs.

I have 2 12in kenwoods and a 1200 watt pyrimade amp, how can i hook these up to be the loudest


1st have your subs facing inwards towards the front of the car, not facing out the boot, This creates a better bass.

Wire 1 sub to one channel and the other sub to the other channel.

Turn down your gain as low as possible and then power everything up.

turn volume to desired loudness and then start turning up the gain slowly, if distorts a little turn in back down a notch.

avoid using bass boost, I agree it sounds great but it puts more strain on your amp and shortens its life.

after sorting out your gain, tweak all others until sound is bassy and clear with no distortion.

If you would like to use bass boost, turn on bass boost first, then up your gain etc.

I have a PPI PCX-2400 and want to power two TREO subs that handle 2500 watts apiece. What is the best way to ire the PPI to these subs so that I get as much power from the amp to the subs without causing...


That would depend on the impedance (resistance) of the subs. Your best bet would be to use the full power of the amp to one channel (i.e. bridged) instead of to two separate channels (i.e. stereo). Two 4 ohm subs wired in parallel would present a 2 ohm load to the amp, which should allow you to get all 1600w out of it.

This explains series vs parallel quite well:

I want a reliable system.


if you bought that equipment today then your answer is yes your amp will power the subs but if i was you and you want more bass I would go with a two channel amp or even a mono block amp that will be 1 ohm stable and if you decide to do that you might want to get subs that are dual 4 ohm voice coils and run them in series that will get you 1 ohm of resistance

My amp and subs work but the subs dont sound very loud. how do i adjust my Pyle PLA4340 amp and fix this problem


Hello polarisracin,

You need to bridge 2 of the amp channels to each 4 ohm sub to get the most power from the amp. Bridge channels 1/2 to one of the subs and channels 3/4 to the other one. But the amp is only rated for 75 watts RMS per channel and Pyle products are sometimes rated higher than their real capabilities. So, even bridged and with the rated output, you'll only be getting at most 150 watts from a pair of bridged channels. That's not much for a sub.

Hope this helps.

The subs aren't pushing out bass.


Hello crobins2,

The Kenwood KAC-6202 2-channel is only rated for 60 watts RMS per channel into a 4 ohm load. That just isn't much power for a pair of 12" subs. Even the bridged output is only 200 watts into 4 ohms, still at the low end for a sub, much less to share between a pair of subs.

Assuming that your subs are 4 ohm, you could probably get more sound by driving just one of them on the bridged terminals. But to get the best power with what you have, connect one sub to each channel, set the filter switch to the far right (LPF), set the operation switch to stereo (both channels driven), set the filter frequency (Hz) to 100 or lower, and adjust the input sensitivity as far clockwise as possible without causing distortion.

But, to do the subs justice, you really need at least 300-400 watts to share between them.

Hope this helps.

Kicker 8 inch 4 ohm subwoofer 200 watts rms?


Max 200 W. You could bridge 2 channels of a 4 channel amp (or get a 2 ch amp and bridge it) and connect the sub. Bridging = connect + of sub to + of one channel, and connect - of sub to - of *other* channel. Check amp manual for instructions.

Don't get a mono - most are 300W or more - might burn the coil during loud passages.

I have a kicker zx700.5 amp


Hello aj_vidal22,

Here's the link to MTX's sub page where you can view or download the information you need to properly wire the subs to your amp.

http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/manualsQuickInstall/subs.cfm

For maximum power, you'll need to wire the subs so that they present a 2 ohm load to the sub outputs on your amp. That will give you the full 420 watts RMS the amp is rated for. Likewise, you,ll want the run the front 4-channels at 2 ohms. Run separately, they produce 85 Watts times 4 channels, or if bridged, 130 watts times 2-channels. But if you run fronts at 4 ohms, they only produce 70 watts times 4 channels and your sub output at 4 ohms drops to 210 watts.

Hope this helps.

How do i bridge 3 subs to a 4 channel amp


My information shows the XM-1652Z as being a 2-channel amp. It will not be stable below 4-ohms in bridged mode. For best power, your subs will need to be 2-ohms with all 3 wired in series. This will present a 6-ohm load to the amp. After wiring the subs in series, connect the positive speaker wire to one channel (+) and the negative speaker wire to the other channel (-). For the 1652Z no other wiring is necessary. For subs you will also want to set the LPF (80Hz) switch to the "ON" position (to the right).

Keep in mind that the rated output is only 400 watts RMS at 4-ohms in bridged mode. That's kinda wimpy for 3 subs. You would probably obtain better results from two 2-ohm subs, each connected to a separate channel. That way each sub would be getting 200 watts RMS, still low but there's lots of good subs that will sound pretty loud with 150-200 watts

2006 12" Kicker L7 4 ohm


first whats the range in terms of WATTS that your 12" sub can handle in 4 OHMS ? second , lets check the AMP , POWER ACOUSTIK 1800 WATTS , Now thats a lot of power to drive a single 12" sub speaker . your amp is 1800 watts , per channel is around 500 watts , if BRIDGE thats around 1600 watts rms for ONE channel , if your sub can handle that kind of wattage fine , but it will not blow the amp , what it does is shuts down , some kind of protection mode , it will come back on after a minute or so. I suggest to use one channel in stereo mode , or purchase another sub to use the other channel. i hope this helps AJ
