This could be caused due to the impedance load being to low. Your amp is stable to 2 ohm load however its very possible that you have your subs wired to a 1 ohm load that would cause the amp to go into protect mode. The subs you have are dual 4 ohm voice coils and would need to be wired in series/parallel. I've included a link that will show you how the subs should be wired.
Hi, if you wire all voice coils in parallel, you will get down to 1.5 ohms. That is the lowest you can go with these 2 subs. Just hook the amps' positive to all 4 positive speaker terminals and the amp negative to all 4 speaker negative terminals. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
Yes audiobahn do make a QUAD coil, and some people get confused with the - - + + on the terminal, This is called a dual lug, Check out Audiobahn.com and go to tech suport. Thier you can look up the wiring diagram for this sub... TRUST ME hope this was helpful positive feed back be nice lol
what type of audiobahn sub is a critical and missing factor of your statement so the specs im about to give you are very generic and can vary because like i already said i need to know the model number to be precise
it should be at 0.6 -2.35 and vented for the aw1005n this specification is for that sub only and depending on what kind of music you listen to will help decide the airspace u need if u get that model number let me know
when a sub is blown it usually makes a scratcy or grinding noise if you push the sub in but if its blow it realy wont make much of a sound so it sounds like your voice coil is going out you will want to get this looked at quick or it can get expensive...i had one were it was cheaper to buy a new sub rather than fix it. it can also just be it disorting from too much power. i would never go over the power limit when dealing with 3000 watts, that can get realy expensive quick
I used to be an Audiobahn dealer and can help you with the box. However I can't find specs on that model in my records or on Audiobahn's website. If you email me (email@example.com) the Theile Small parameters for the subs I can give you more exact specs. The box should be ported (Audiobahn doesn't recomend a sealded box) with about 2.5 cubic feet, made of 3/4" MDF. Here are some generic specs that should go well with that particular sub.
