A number of things could be wrong. First off, how do you have the 3 subs wired that will actually give you 2 ohms? For instance, if you had 3 single voice coils and they were each 4 ohms You would be sitting around 1.5 ohms. Or if they were dual 4 ohm subs then you could have wired the voice coils in series then the subs in parallel and came up with about 3 ohms. Unless the kickers have an odd impedence then there is no way you have 2 ohms from the subs to match the 2 ohms at the amp. So what I would do is try to match the impedence as well as I could. Also, make sure the amp is well ventilated. do not screw it directly down to a surface, put some 1/4" spacers on the screws so some air flow can get under the amp also. I hope I could help. Good luck

2 kicker cvr 12's in prewired kicker box with 1 wire terminal, kicker cx1200.1 amp. Whats the best way to wire this combo?


Well you really can't run both speakers on one term. because you will over heat the amp , unless your amp is rated at twice the capability of your subs , Then if so , Try positive to one sub , then neg. to the other sub , then bridge the remaining positive to the remaining negative terminal , But it is really best to get a two channel amp for your subs !!!

I have 2 12 inch kickers cvr and i have the rockfordfosgate g15002 hooked up and briged and it keeps cutting off


This is usually due to wiring the subwoofers to the wrong Ohm load. Normally those amps are rated at a 4 Ohm load. It sounds to me like they are wired down to a 2 Ohm load and bridged. It's a protection situation for the amp. If you have a multimeter, disconnect the woofers from the amp. Next, hook the meter up to the subwoofers where the wire or wires are coming out of the box. If you can give more information on the woofers, I can give you a better idea on what the numbers that you should see. It depends on if they are dual 2 or 4 Ohm woofers.

How to hook up two 10" kicker cvr for best sound


If they are single voice coil and are 4 ohm you can bridge your amp and run both speakers off of it so your amp sees a 2 ohm load....better bass that will hit harder....(series wiring) look it up on google....

I have an Audiobahn A8000T amp and 2 12" Kicker CVR (DVC) Dual voice Coil. The Subwoofers are 2OHM a peice. What is the best way to hook this all up to run a 2 OHM load to my subs?


This is a link to Kicker for your CVR12 Subs...if you have the 2 ohm version (2 ohms per voice coil) and you have 2 speakers ....you will need to wire EACH speakers voice coils in series to get 4 ohms from each speaker and then wire the 2 speakers in parallel.....as in....2 ohms in series with 2 ohms = 4 ohms....both speakers wired same way, then in Parallel with each other = 2 ohm load. Page 2 of this link gives examples of both series and parallel wiring of your speaker.

PLEASE respond and I will attempt to explain it EXACTLY via wiring directions.

well my friend either your amp is not powerful enough to push your subs or you have a sub that is shorting out cause i just had the same problem with my 2 15 kicker cvr competition subs

I have 2 12 in kicker cvr tryna drop to lower ohm


http://www.colomar.com/Shavano/dvc_spkr_wiring.html

Use the above site for several wiring schematics on dual voice coil speaker hookups. It will show how to wire for different impedance.
Also, I think the CVR 12's come in 2 ohm and 4 ohm impedance. See if you can check yours to determine which you have....

How to wire a kicker 15 cvr


175W x 2 @ 2 ohms
350W x 1 @ 4 ohm
Your amplifier is not stable @ 2 ohm bridged. So you will have to wire them independantly on each channel.
+/- on sub to +/- on L channel
+/- on sub to +/- on R channel
Wiring the subwoofers in paallel will result in a 2 ohm load, which your amplifier is not rated to do. Doing so will cause heat buildup, and damage to the amplifier.

How do i wire 10' kicker cvr


dual 2 or dual 4

dual 2 wire vc's in series for a 4 ohm load each. Hook each speaker seperate channels on the amp.

dual 4 wire vc in series for an 8 ohm load each. Hook both + to the right + on the amp and both - to the left - on the amp. or

dual 4 wire vc in parallel for a 2 ohm load each and hook each speaker to seperate channels on the amp.
