    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.

One thing to remember about most radios, the RCA pre amp circuit will still work even if the mosfet power amp inside the radio does not. The best way to know if the amp inside the radio works is to use one matching color pair coming off the radio to wire up a random speaker right to the radio. You can use just about any old random 4 ohm speaker that is laying around to check it. The best solution if the amp inside the radio is blown is to replace the radio or amp the pre amp outputs with a small 4 channel amp. Oh, by the way. What vehicle are you connecting this into? And does the vehicle say Bose, Infinity, or ect sound or Premium sound? These usually denote a factory amplifyer already onboard and requires special connections to get the signal to these amps to then be delivered to the speakers.

I just bought a subwoofer and I cannot get it to work. I changed the receiver setting to SW = YES. Where is the correct place to plug it in the receiver, there are two subwoofer outlets.


Here's your manual. Check Pg. 9 for correct Sub Woofer connection. Leave the SW=YES setting as is if you any small speakers in the system. It can be set to SW=PLUS if you want all bass signals sent to the Sub Woofer. It should only be set to SW=NO if no Sub Woofer is connected. Experiment between the YES and PLUS settings and leave it where it sounds best to you.

If this was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" - thanks & good luck!

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?)

I have a four channel rockfor fosgate amp and I need to know hows the best way to connect Infinity Reference 1252w Car Subwoofers


Rockford fosgate usually work best with 2 ohm speakers. Depending on the resistance of your speakers, will then give you best connection. Check the resistance for the subwoofers. If the subwoofers are two ohm then connect them directly right and left. But if they are 4 ohm connect them parrallel (positive to postive, negative to negative and bridge the amp.) Good Luck, please rate.

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.

Please help


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.

Wiring diagram


The LEd wires need a wire run from the speaker to the Fuse block in your car. The small Red wire from the LED will be the one that hooks to Swtiched 12 Volts supply on the fuse block so that your Led Turns on when you turn the keyswitch on. The Black wire goes to ground, or to a metal part of your cars body, probably the same point where your Amp is Grounded.

The Octane R10 is a Single Voice Coil or SVC.
AMP+ to Sub+
Amp- to Sub -
Use 12 guage wire.
