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

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.

How many watts does this amp put out


50 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms (75 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms)
150 watts RMS x 2 in bridged mode (4-ohm stable in bridged mode)

I have the MRP-M1000 amp. I want to hook up 2 alpine subs to this amp. Which alpine subs would be the best for this amp? Please be specific with ohms and watts.


Your best bet will be to wire 2 subs in parallel to the amp. Each sub should be rated for at least 300 watts rms at 4 ohms. This will give you a total impedance of 2 ohms, and your amp will put out 600 watts rms at that impedance. That way, each sub will receive 300 wats rms. I would not recommend wiring subs in parallel, as you will need two 1 ohm subs at 300 watts rms, which are harder to find and will be more expensive. A parallel circuit is the most efficient way to do it.

I got to 12 they are about 400 watts each what would be a good amp to put on it to lift the subs


Hello jeremymikjha,

Basically you want to match the subs in impedance and power.

With 4 ohm subs wired in parallel, the final load will be 2 ohms. Depending on how hard you want them to hit, a pair of 400 watt RMS subs will need an amp that delivers 600-1,000 watts into a 2 ohm load.

The enclosure you use will also make a big difference. A sealed enclosure will need more power. A ported enclosure will be louder with less power.

The Hifonics shown here would be a good choice for a sealed enclosure. It's rated for 1,100 watts RMS into a 2 ohm load.

The Eclipse XA1200 outputs 600 watts RMS into a 2 ohm load. It would power the subs very well in a ported box.

http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_17598_Hifonics+BXi+1610D.html

Somewhat less expensive but good quality would be one of the Alpine MRP series. The MRP-M500 is only $179.99 at SonicElectronix. It delivers 500 watts. It's big brother is the MRP-M1000 with twice the power. Be sure your subs are securely mounted or this amp will literally "lift the subs".

Hope this helps.

4000.1 soundstorm amp


Hello GregV24CHOPP,

The Soundstorm products are in about the same category as Boss, Visonik, Pyle, and Lanzar to name a few. Somewhere between overrated and definitely overpriced for the quality you get.

Look into the Alpine MRP-M1000. RMS = 1kW into 2ohms (600 into 4ohms), YES 4 OHMS(!), real power. No, it WON'T do one ohm. But most of those claiming to are not CEA2006 compliant anyway and can claim any power at any load and advertise for whatever buyers they can attract for their bottom-of-the-barrel products.

The MRP-M1000 is currently on sale at Crutchfield for only $347. Awesome power, and very good sound quality, too. I'm currently running 2 4ohm MTX Thunders off of "little brother", the MRP-M500, and they really shake the pavement.

You have to spend good money to get good power, there is no way around that.

The only wiring configurations for 2 2ohm DVC subs result in 0.5ohm, 2ohms, and 8ohms impedance. Check the Rockford-Fosgate "wiring wizard" for the different diagrams.

Hope this helps.

You've pretty much hit the nail on the head. Two 2 ohm subs in parallel would give you 1 ohm, and two 2 ohm subs in series would give you 4 ohms. 1 ohm would be overloading the amp but 4 ohms is slightly "underloading" the amp.

Your best solution with the gear you have (i.e. not buying new subs or a new amp) is to put the subs in series (4 ohms). True, you'll be putting about 200W into each sub, but according to page 4 of the owner's manual for the subs, 200W is just a tad under the optimum level recommended for the sub anyway.

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.

Problems with MRP-M650


as far as it staying on it may have been wired to your hot unstead of your remote on your radio

when it runs wide open it gets hot
how are your gains

I have an alpine and I just hooked up jl 12 w3s and it kinda j did what yours did
it played.. hit hard then no subs.. my mids and highs platyed, but until I would turn off the car and restart the radio the subs immediately came on and the subs are only connected to this aplpine mrp m 650 amp

what speakers and what ohm did they wire it too?

i think my problem was I was overloading my amp feeding it a 2 ohm load or a one ohm load and it was shutting down my subs.. protectection I suppose?

MRP-M450 puts out no sound to the subs


The amplifier may be overloaded, check to see if it can handle 4 OHM loads and 2 OHM loads. if it turns off at high volume the amp may be overloaded. if so try a 8 OHM load. if it still turns off it may be an internal problem.

Should I buy


If the power rating of the woofer is accurate, this amp would be a good choice.
