AJ driver is correct. You will need an amp to test out the speakers and make sure that they are functional. I would reccomend looking at local pawn shops for a cheaper, used amp -- this way you don't have to spend too much money. Also, look the speakers up online and make sure that you buy the proper speaker cables for them to assure the best clarity.

Hopefully this helps you solve your problem.

SOURCE: unsureness of wiring configurations.

Also- get a voltmeter to check the ohms on your speakers before hooking them up. If you want extra power, and your amp can handle it, you can wire the subs down or in parallel. This is where the voltmeter is needed. check your amps rating and match it closely. For instance if your amp can handle 2ohms mono. You would wire two (single voice coil) 4ohm subs in parallel, and connect that to the amp. But if you have dual voice coil subs you will need to wire the subs differently. For dual 2ohm subs each sub would first be wired (with a thick speaker wire). Take one positive pole on the sub and wire it to the negitive pole of the opposite voice coil. Which should leave a positive from one voice coil and a negitive from the other. With a dual 2ohm subs you will see 4ohms, and with dual 4ohm subs you will see 8ohms and so on. Once you have one sub done you need wire the two subs together and use the same procedure (as if each sub is a voice coil) to determine the overall load on the amp. Your amps Ohm rating will determine which way to wire your subs. Example- If you have dual 4ohm voice coils and your amp will handle a mono 1ohm load. It will put out much more power at 1ohm than if you wired them to a 8ohm load. In fact the power output is determined by resistance (ohms). Except a few amps like JL Audio, most amps will follw this rule. A 100 watt amp that is rated at 100 watts at 8ohms mono, and is capable of a 1/2 ohm mono load (very important). Will double it's output everytime you drop the ohm load in half. i.e.-
8ohms=100watts (all numbers are mono ratings)
I won my first SPL competition using this formula. I entered a 150x2watt amp class and wired my amp down to a 1/2ohm mono load thus making a 150x2 amp push 1200watts! (I used 2 - dual 2ohm voice coil 15" CV Strokers wired in parallel.)
PLEASE BE CAREFULL!!! there are only a few amps I know of that can do that and survive. The only other downfall (besides reliability, heat, and warranties) is there will be a corresponding drop in sound quality. This begins a whole other subject so I will just say this. This drop in sound quality is sometimes not noticed due to the nature of subwoofers (especially in cars). I hope this adds to the above info and further answers your question. For extra info please contact me @ thanx.

I just wired my hot tub into my new house. And GFCI keeps tripping?

Still would go with Miswired.
if this is an auxiliary GFCI Spa Disconnect,
240 VAC, 50 Amp, then...
All of the following needs to be this way:
  • 4 wires from MAIN Circuit panel, into GFCI disconnect box, 2 hots, 1 Neutral, 1 ground
    • 2 hots go onto the disconnects Power Bus Bar for breaker
    • 1 white Nuetral goes to Isolated nuetral bus bar
    • 1 green Ground goes to ground lug directly on the box
  • 1 GFCI in the auxiliary disconnect box
    • The White Pigtail of the GFCI Breaker goes onto the Isolated Nuetral bus bar. There are now two wires there.
  • 4 wires come into box from Spa. (Unless the spa is Specifically a 3 Wire Connection Spa!)
    • 2 Hot/Line wires will go into the L1 & L2 lugs of the breaker respectively.
    • 1 White Nuetral Wire will go into breaker as well at the "Load Nuetral lug, usually marked as 'LN'.
      • It will NOT go on the Isolated Nuetral bus bar.
    • Green Ground wire will be connected to ground lug, 2 wires are now connected there.
  • Connections at spa will be respectively connected: the 2 hots on line 1 and line 2. White wire goes to Nuetralnd green ground will go to a Ground Lug, most likely to metal control box.
If it's not wired in this manner, it is wired WRONG.

How to conect three phase 5 wire conection to 4 wire 380volt three phase from the machine

Identify each of the 5 wires with voltage testing.
Find which breaker serves the 3-wire, and which breaker serves the 2-wire.
--You might have a 3-pole 3-phase breaker (with 3 hot wires) plus a single-pole breaker (with 1 hot and 1 neutral) ... giving a line with 4 hot wires and 1 neutral.
--Or you might have a 3-pole 3-phase breaker (with 3 hot wires) plus double-pole breaker (with 2 Hots) ... giving a line with 5 hot wires and no neutral.
The 4 wires from machine are probably 3 Hots and a neutral, or 3 Hots and a ground.

You need to identify where the ground wire is. One of the 5 wires from breaker box might be a ground.

How can i install the transformer for intermatic timer t10004rt3

Intermatic phone number: 815-675-7076

T104RT3 has 120Volt 300 watt transformer with 12-13-14Volt output.

The timer mechanism is 240Volt T104M.

Since both 120Volt and 240Volt are needed, the wire coming from breaker box should have 2 Hots and a neutral, plus the ground wire.
So you need 12-3 with/ground wire or 10-3 with/ground wire.
See image of typical wires plus ratings:
See example image showing 2 hots and neutral and ground coming from breaker box:

The 2 hot wires come from a 240Volt circuit breaker.
The neutral comes from the neutral busbar, or can be accessed from tying into any white neutral on nearby 120Volt outlet.

How to wire timer:
Connect 240Volt hot wires to terminals 1 and 3 on timer. Connect 240Volt timed output to terminals 2 and 4 on timer.

How to wire transformer:
Connect 120Volt transformer two different ways. (a) white wire connects to neutral wire and black wire connects to terminal 1 on timer. With this wiring, the transformer is ON at all times. (b) white wire connects to neutral wire and black wire connects to terminal 2 on timer. With this wiring, the transformer will be ON when timer turns on.
Do not put both stranded wire and copper wire under same screw terminal. Instead connect transformer wire to solid copper wire using wire nut.

Hello i hooked up a t104 timer to a 220 pool pump i have 3 wires going to timer 2 hots and a ground the pump works correctly when timer is switched to manual but timer does not work can you please advise...

I assume it's an Intermatic T104. I believe this has a 230V motor, which is best for your application. Since you only have 2 hots and a ground I assume you're only switching one leg to the motor. That's why the timer won't run. It need 240V to run the motor. You need 5 wires. Two "hots" coming in, and two going out to the motor along with your equipment grounding conductior (green). This will disconnet all power to the pump when off. Pay attention that you put the two incoming leads on correct terminals which I believe is #1 and #3. That's because those terminals also power the clock. Then connect the motor to #2 and #4 which go to the motor. 1 closes to 2 and 3 closes to 4. The equipment grounding conductor connects to the GR terminal (Green)

Control fan/light separately, with only two wires

They are available at Home Depot and Lowes. Hunter makes a wall mounter dimmer that will control the lights and fan speed separately. There is a receiving unit that mounts above the fan to the house wires on one side and the others connect to the fan.

The two hots you mentioned should be a black one and a blue one. The blue is for the lights; the black the fan. Ground everything you can to boxes, etc, if the house is only a two wire system without a ground.

I believe that remote wall switch and receiver runs close to $40.

From three prong to four prong

Hello There,

your hooking up 2 Hots 1 Neutral and 1 Ground


you need to consult a electrician for reason that 240 is a very high voltage and will kill you.

your outlet has to match your plug and how its wired into the Panel

Double Pole Breaker 50amp no less

2 hots go to breaker from outlet red / black
1 neutral goes to neutral bus bar in panel from outlet
1 ground goes to ground bus bar in panel from outlet

that equals your four wires

Electrical installation

From the specs that you are showing 800 watts @ 230 volts will pull under 3.5 amps. I would install a 20 amp 220 volt circuit with #12 wire. Just double check if the tub requires a 3 wire ckt (2 hots & ground) or a 4 wire ckt. ( 2 hots, neutral & ground) Make sure the ckt. is GFCI protected!
