i think it depends on the speaker itself, it should say on the back the sreaker, most likely on the magnet, what ohm the speaker is.

SOURCE: witch is better

hi there. ill start with the wiring. you should have a blue remote lead going to the back of your head unit, the power cable running straight from the amp to the battry, the earth should be earthed in a fairly decent place, any metal inside the car realy, and then your wires pos and neg from the amp to the subs. the reason why the kenwood might not have much base on it is to my knowledge, there should be a switch somewhere on the amp that will increase or decrease the power input for the speakers, if this is set very low then hense why theres not much base comming from them. if the amp is on and its giving something to the subs it probably isnt the wiring. try checking the amp for the switch first, if you cant find it try the pioneer amp and see if theres any diference.
dont hesitate to contact me if you get stuck


cheers, adam

Do not continue to put new fuses into the amp until you have figured out what is causing the problem. It will only increase the chances of causing more damage to the amplifier. I have been repairing car and home amplifiers for over 18 years and have a lot of experience with Pioneer amplifiers since I work at an authorized Pioneer service center.

This post will be long, but if you bear with me and forgive my long-winded answers you may be able to determain your problem even tho I really don't have enough information to figure it out yet. If not, we can get a little closer with more information.

Does the amplifier blow the fuse as soon as you connect power to it, or as soon as a new fuse is put into the amp? If so, the amplifier has some shorted components in the power supply. They have a bank of mosfet transistors in the power supply that sometimes get shorted when the amp has been pushed beyond it's ability, or just from a random part failure, or if the impedance of the speakers is too low. Your speaker is a 4 ohm speaker, if it is at a lower impedance than 3 ohms when measured with an ohm meter then it will need to be replaced. Even if it still plays, it is too low of a load for the amplifier and will cause more current to go thru the amp than what it was designed for. If you are using more than one speaker and have them bridged it will do the same thing. This amp is rated at 4 ohms bridged and 2 ohms per channel stereo. When you connect 2 speakers together and then bridge them they become a 2 ohm load which causes double the amount of current to flow thru the amp. It was not designed for that. Sometimes you can get these component failures just because there may be a solder joint or two inside the amplifier that is cracked and not making connection very well and this can cause components to short out because they are not operating at the proper voltage.

If your amp blows the fuse only after it has been turned on by your head unit, you will most likely have a blown channel. This would require the replacement of the output transistors of the bad channel as well as a few resistors and sometimes a few other parts.

If your amp will turn on and play for a while and then blow the fuse at higher volume levels or after a long time playing the problem can be either a bad speaker at a lower impedance or one or more components that are breaking down after they get hot or at a certain volume level.

As you can tell by now there are many reasons that an amplifier can blow the fuses, and figuring out just what the cause is can sometimes be a difficult task. It may require that you have a multimeter to do some checks on the amp and a power supply to power the amp on a bench so you can do those tests.

If this information has not helped you to determain the problem, please give me as much information as you can about how you are using the amp. How many speakers, where they are connected, at what point does the amp blow the fuse, and anything else that you can think of that may or may not be important. You never know what might give a better clue, too much information is always better than too little.

Thanks and good luck,

Dave

What size box should i build fro two pioneer 12inch speakers 1200watts each


For optimal performance there is really only one size for the box .Firstly, you get two different types of subwoofers, an open air, or closed air sub. If it is an open air sub ( hole with mesh in the center of the magnet) no ports are required, and the box should be sealed on the inside with silicone sealant. If it is a closed air sub ( no hole in the magnet) you need a 50mm port about 120mm long. If it is a 12 inch speaker, the box size will be 13 inches x 13 inches x 13 inches.

Is my 1200 pioneer amp a good match for my 1200 watt pioneer sub


this is too close, your speaker wattage is alway's higher than your amplifier's wattage alway's to be safe because the hard pounding will make the speaker work harder, and this will cause your speaker burn out easily, though you can adjust your amplifier anyway's

What amp should i buy for my pioneer ts-w2501d4 10" subwoofer???


great qweastion it all depends on how many speakers you want to run of it dont make the mistake of just amping your subb amp every speaker in the car thats why amps have gains (vol controls) you can send as much power to witch ever speaker you want and less to what ever you dont like fading and balancing and hey you have gotta get some tweeters they make the world of diffrence but each speaker needs a channel so if you have 4 speakers a 4 channel amp and so on good luck with it have fun

What kind amp should be use for ts-w307d2 subwoofer speaker?


Nice sub, i have 2 308d4s in my car. Okay this sub is a dual coil 2 ohm. so to get best bang for your buck you'll want a 2 channel amp and bridge it. Your sub is 400 watts RMS, So you'll want an amp that has the same rating. I'd recommend the pioneer GM-5400t. Then wire your voice coils in parallel, and bridge your amp, you'll get 380 watts RMS, which is perfect for this sub. If you have questions on wiring or anything you can just ask. thanks, i hope this helps

Is it good


If you are using a GM-7200 amp, it should sound great. Both the amp and the subs are rated at 800 watts so be careful not to overload the bass by turning them on full power. It is good practice to have a slightly lower watt amp than the subwoofers. If you can power your rear speakers from the amp, that would take away some power to prevent the subs from overloading. Overall, you should get a nice THUMP!!
