Hi i bought this amp about a year and a half ago, and i had it wired stereo at 4 ohms, to two cheap jensen 10" xs bass single 4ohm voice coil subs. It worked for 3 days and the amp was only on 1/4 of the way, due to the cheap subs and i tink the rms on those were like 150. I was driving to my work, and it just stopped, it did go into like protect mode, so i turned everything off checked all my connections esp the ground and everything was good, i put a friends amp in and it worked great so i know the wiring was good, i got the manual for the amp and did what it said and had it on and unplugged the RCA's and speaker wires and was still in protect mode, what can i do, i took it to a local shop that is an authorized hifonics dealer and they looked at it and said it would cost me more to fix it than i paid for it. i just want to be able to use it and not have it sitting collecting dust.

Yes they information available on them they are still around. You will need a class-D 300 watt RMS amp to run them at perfect power if i remember right they are 150 watt RMS,, 450 watt max per sub.// just never mind the max it means nothing. They are a 4 ohm sub i believe so you would want to get a 1 ohm stable amp. two 4 ohm subs can be run at 1 ohm wired in series. they are actually made by audio vox corp.to wire them is easy ill give a link to do so easy to use. and handy. let me look for some info on your sub...? Yes there is info out there here is another link. Need additional help give a shout. Rockford Fosgate Woofer WiringWizardJENSEN XS1010 Specs
best way is to just run the volfenhag with a set of wires for 2 channells(one set per coil) left and right @ 4 ohms per channell. The CVRs you can parallel the coils(2 ohms) and run a set from each sub to the amp in stereo left and right. This will give the kickers a little more juice than the 12 but should be fine.
Start by checking and making sure that you have excellent connections at power,ground, and signal. Depending on the voltage output of your rca wires if you are running rca's to your amp typicaly your amp gain should be only at half - you may be clipping the signal if you have the amp set too high. On your deck you will want your bass settings at only half -again too much boost will cause clipping at the amp. with all your settings adjusted and all possible connections checked- the only thing left to check is the compatibility of your subs in relation to the amp-by that im referring to the overall resistance-measured in OHMS that you are placing on the amp.Your amp is probably rated at about 150wattsx2 at 4 ohms or 200+watts x 2 into 2 ohms or 400-460watts into a 4 ohm bridged load. Look on the magnet of the speakers and find out if you have single coils or dual coils and see what the ohms(resistance) of each sub (or coils) are rated at- ideally you would want a set of dual voice coil 4ohm+4ohm per sub- that way you can match the subs better with your amp.---- Heres a scenario that may or may not apply to you- i see it all the time so im going to share it with you---- If you have a set of single voice coil 4 ohm subs and you are trying to run them wired in parallel to the amp in bridged -then that is why you amp is shutting down- you will have to wire the subs in series until you either get different subs that will yield an overall 4 ohm load -or find a different amp that will take a 2 ohm load - okay for now try wiring the subs in series and see if it still sends out an overcurrent light on you-good luck
The Jensen XS1010 is a 4-ohm sub and should work properly off of the outputs of most any single channel monoblock sub amp or off a bridged 2-channel. You did not say what brand or type of amp you intend to use, but in any case, there's only 2 wires to connect to the sub, one positive (+) , the other negative (-). Simply match them up with the positive and negative on the amp speaker output and you are ready to bump.
the amp is going into protect mode due to something wrong in the amp or some thing in the wiring to it ooh yea if you are getting 18v power to the amp that is way to high it should not be higher then 15v if the amp is in protect mode it will not play at all.
