    Depends on the number of voice coils on each speaker, and what the impedance of each voice coil is.



    Hooking two 4-ohm single voice coil speakers together is different than hooking two 4-ohm dual voice coil speakers together.



    Let me know what you speaker configuration is, and I will tell you how to wire them up

Parallel would be the best way to wire them. 2 4 ohms subs to one channel wired parallel would be a 2 ohm load for that channel and if u wire them series then 2 4ohm subs to one channel would be an 8 ohm load for that channel.

Do you plug the sub woofer outputs to another amp?


Yes, for best results. Your subwoofer should have a seperate amplifier because it has low pass filter that produces low frequency signals. It is done by connecting the sub woofer output to the input signal of the amplifier and then connecting the output signal to the subwoofer speaker terminals. Hope this helps.

I have wired everything correctly to my phoenix gold octane 2.5:2 amp and the remote terminal is not working. i have hooked up another amp to check to see if its the remote line and any other problems but...


Perhaps the PG Octane R needs a bit more power on the remote. Check if connectors are well connected to the wire. There might be some resistant present if the connection is not 100%. (oxidation?)

Connecting subwoofers


Good day. I take it that you have two subwoofers to connect and will explain the connections thereof. Place the two subwoofers face down and notice the connection point marked -, + on the one speaker, and the same-,+ on the second speaker. Now connect the center + and - together, leaving the two outer connection points open. The outer connection points will go to your amp. Next, take note on your amp, a "bridge" connection. It should be the outer connections on your amp. Hope this helps

Using JBL 4410 3-Way crossover, trying to use PG 12" Dual 4-ohm


ok, connect the amp positive to the positive end of one sub coil, take the negative of that coil, and run it to the positive of the second sub coil, then run the negative out of the second sub coil to the negative of the amp.

That depends on what impedence the subs are. If they are 4 ohms each then just parallel them to the amp + to + and - to - on both of them that will give you a 2 ohm mono load which is fine for that amp.

Amp is on, Subwoofer works, but no sound.


here is a short test you can try, remove the rca audio cable from the amp & connect a diskman or toher audio o/p device that you can hook up with the same rca wires, turn on the amp & see if you have sound. you can also remove the speaker wires from the sub & using multi meter read the ohm's of the sub, most subs are 4 ohm. Hope this help locate your problem
