You can't wire a pair of single voice coil 2ohm subs to achieve a 2 ohm mono load. Too bad you don't have 2 four ohm SVC's. Sorry

How can I wire a 2 ohm and 4 ohm kicker dual voice coil speakers to a JL 500 1 channel amp


Ok, so you have a single 2 ohm speaker and a 4 ohm speaker with dual voice coils? The JBL Is a 2 Ohm load I believe.


I ran through the maths...

Series parallel with the 4 Ohms in series in parallel with the 2 Ohm gives you 1.6 Ohms

2 x 4 ohms in parallel with a 2 ohm in series gives you 4 Ohms which is no good.

All three in series give you 10 ohms which is no good.

All three parallel gives 1 ohm.

So with this set up you cannot create a perfect match. So you will always run the risk of bad audio or the amp blowing at high output.

How much watts does a JL audio 10w0-8 have?


the 10w0-8 are 8 ohm speakers and rated rms is 125 watts, an amp running 300 watts is perfect and you need to wire it in series to pull a 4 ohm load from your amp. if amp is larger than 300 watts rms it will kill the w0's in a quick minute.

Can i run a 4ohm.dvc & a 3ohm.svc off of a mtx te 801d


if you wire the 4 ohm sub voice coils in parallel you will have a 2 ohm load for the Image Dynamics sub, the JL sub only being single voice coil will of course be 3 ohm.
You cannot connect them both to the amp you specified as when connected the total load will be less than 2ohms and the amp will either trip it's protection circuit or could damage the amp, My suggestion is to try each sub separately and decide on the one you like the most or obtain a matching pair for the 4ohm DVC.

What way should I hook 2 12" jl audio to a jl audio 1000/1


Is this sub an svc or a dvc? From what I looked up they are svc, so each sub's voicecoil is 3 OHMS, connecting them in parallel would lower them to 1.5, and your amp is capable of going down to 1.5 ohms. So I would suggest running them in parallel.

Speakers wired in parallel
Recommended Amplifier: Stable at 2 or 1 ohm mono 2_4ohm_svc_2ohm.gif
(Although from the information I gathered these subs have 3 OHM voicecoils, so in the diagram where is says 4 OHM it should say 3 OHM, and the 2 OHM should say 1.5 OHMS.

This is a good site to help calculate OHMS: http://www.bcae1.com/spkrmlti.htm


Hope this helps.

Try to install 3 12w3d6 subwoofers connecting 3 sub together to put them in box


You need to wire them according to the limitations of your amp you can pull a 1 ohm overall load just by connecting all of your coils in parallel- or you can get an overall load of 4 ohms by wiring each sub individually in a series configuration which will yield a 12 ohm load per sub -and then wire the 3 sets in parallel which will bring your ohms back down to 4. You can do a lot with that many coils it depends on your amp really-ideally a 1 ohm stable class d mono amp that is 1000-1500 watts rms would knock the **** outta those things JL is the good stuff.

How can i connect 2 12''s pioneer premier too an jl audio amp n make the bass loud???


Hello m1k377060,

Having your subs in well-designed and constructed enclosures will make as much or more difference in their output than how you connect them to an amp.

The TS-SW1241D's are single voice coil 4 ohm shallow subwoofers that are rated for 350 watts RMS. For maximum loudness, your JL amp needs to be 2 ohm stable and capable of delivering 700 watts RMS into that impedance. Wire the subs in parallel for a 2 ohm load and maximum power from the amp.

Hope this helps.

2 L5 12'S 2OHM


I like JL Audio's products and in this case a 1000/1 would match these subs really well considering that each sub is rated at 600 watts RMS. I know that you want to bring these subs to the max and if you're not worried about blowing them up you can use two JL Audio 1000/1's, the JL amps have something called ohm matching and can put out 1000watts RMS at any load between 2ohms and 16ohms. A very use full feature - as well as a subsonic filter that can keep out the bass you can't hear and thus keep your subs alive longer especially if you plan to max em' out. Check out Ebay for good prices on JL Audio. Another choice might be an Audiobahn 2300, or preferably an 1800d. D class amps are best for max output and I've wired an Audiobahn 1800d down to a 1 ohm load (to two dual 4 ohm 15" Cerwin Vega Strokers paralleled down) and it was able to stay alive, but this was not used for prolonged listening (Short bursts for SPL comps). Good luck and I'll leave you with an old trick I used to use on my clients SPL Comp cars. Run an in-line fuse to each sub - start at about a 100amp fuse (1,000w @ 12v = 120 amp draw) and move it up if it blows too early, fuses are cheaper than subs! Let me know what box you are running as it must be built specifically for running the subs all-out. You can e-mail me @ (dynami28@charter.net) for free specs on basic enlosures.

How to wire 2 ohm 2 12ich alpine type r's to box terminals?


Dual 4 ohm subwoofers can only be wired @ 1 ohm, 4 ohm or 8 ohm.
2 ohm mono load is not possible.
You will need to use (1) subwoofer to get the 1000W out of the amp.
Wire both positives on one sub to + on amplifier and both - on the same sub to - on amplifier to give the amplifier a 2 Ohm load.
Add a second amplifier, or buy an amplifier that is 1 ohm mono stable.
You can wire both to the amplifier at 4 ohms 600W, but they will share the power and only see 300W ea.

12 w 3 v3 2 cut off


Again as I have stated in my other answer to you. You can not wire two SVC 2 ohm subs to acheive a 2 ohm load. more than likely you are running your amp at 1 ohm mono and this is why it is clipping and shutting off.
