Hi!well i think you should use both channels.because if you'll use both channels then u'll have high power to your subs.i have tryed it and i prefer you use both channels.

How do I wire two subs up for the full 850 rms on a kac-9102d amp



  • Wire up two 4 Ohm subs in parallel (bridged) or one 2 Ohm sub.

  • You will take both of your subs positive leads and run them to the left positive (white connector on the amp) and both of your subs negative leads and run them both to the right negative (gray and black connector on the amp). That's max RMS right there. Pay attention to the Ohm rating of your subs as this does play a factor. What I explained is how to bridge two 4 Ohm subs. 8 Ohm is a little different but car subs rarely are 8 Ohm.

How should i have my 4ohm single voice coil JL audio 12in subs connected to my kenwood kac-9104d 1800 watt max power (500x1 @4) amplifier?


On the outputs of the amp there is:

+ + - -
1 2 3 4

terminals. Internally in the amp the positives (1 and 2) are connected together and negatives (3 and 4) together. So there is no difference between hooking up in any of the configurations 13, 14, 23 or 2->4. If its a matter of style, probably use the 14 set, since they're furter apart and harder to short out that way, but electrically it doesn't matter.

How to connect Kenwood KAC-6104D to a single 4ohm


you want to parallel the terminals on the woofer. a jumper from positive to positive and the same on the negative will equal 2 ohm load at the amp

How many svc subs at 4ohm does it take to get this amp to 1ohm stable and can you reccomend a good sub combo for this amp whether it be dvc or svc


It depends if your sub is 4ohm svc, or 2ohm svc. 4ohm would take 4 subs wired in parallel, 2ohm would take 2 subs wired in parallel. But for a amp that big, subs that'll handle it are definitely gonna be dvc. I'd recommend 2 Orion 4ohm dvc hcca's. They come in either 15in or 12in. the 15s are louder if you have the space for them. As far as wiring goes, wire the voice coils on the subs in parallel to 2ohm per sub, then wire the 2 subs in parallel to 1ohm. Goodluck and congrats on the equipment, Orion is about as good as you can go for subs and amps. just be ready to lay down some dynamat cuz this system'll bloww your vehicle apart! good luck...

Wiring options


Yor best bet is to wire each one positive to neg to get 8ohms then pos-pos and neg-neg to get 2.66 ohms. Otherwise series parallel. If you wire them all pos-pos and neg-neg you will be running .66ohms and will most certainly fry your amp or it will overheat and shut down all the time

Can i kook up 4ohm dvc sub to a kac-x810d amp?


No, the sub is dual 4ohms...meaning if you parallel the positive speaker terminals and the negative speaker terminals you will have a 2ohm sub. Conversely, if you series the pos and neg you will have an 8ohm sub. if you wirte to just one set of terminals on the sub you will have a 4ohm sub.

Running 2 amps


amps could be overheating or the subs could be requiring more power then the amps are giving off.

Install my Kenwood KAC-9102D in my 2006 Acura RSX Type S


You will probably need to use a Line Output Converter (LOC). They're available at virtually any shop that sells car audio.

Many times, the outputs of the OEM amplifier will have significant DC voltage on them. This could damage the input circuits on the kenwood amplifier.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

How to install kenwood kac-9102d in 2006 acura rsx


My recommendation is to get a line level converter. Go to a car audio shop or even best buy and specifically ask for a line level converter. It will have speaker wires in and RCAs out. Connect the speaker wires to the sub woofer speaker wires and then you will have the RCAs to run to your amp. I hope this helped.
