To do it safely, you need to fully understand everything about the system. It would take too much to explain everything here. If you're really interested in doing this properly, read through the following site. Read the 'Fuses' page twice. It will help prevent an electrical fire.

How do i get full power out of my kenwood kac-1520s amplifier hooked up to two 12" audiobahn 400 watt subwoofers


Your amp is under powered for those speakers (350 max. watt). Even if your subs were 2 ohm your amp will only put out 75 watts X 2 at 2 ohms, if you bridge that amp you might be asking for trouble . I'm guessing there both 4 ohm. Look around for a 2 ohm stable mono amp with more power and you won't be sorry. Ray

I have 2 12in kenwoods and a 1200 watt pyrimade amp, how can i hook these up to be the loudest


1st have your subs facing inwards towards the front of the car, not facing out the boot, This creates a better bass.

Wire 1 sub to one channel and the other sub to the other channel.

Turn down your gain as low as possible and then power everything up.

turn volume to desired loudness and then start turning up the gain slowly, if distorts a little turn in back down a notch.

avoid using bass boost, I agree it sounds great but it puts more strain on your amp and shortens its life.

after sorting out your gain, tweak all others until sound is bassy and clear with no distortion.

If you would like to use bass boost, turn on bass boost first, then up your gain etc.

Just bought 2 12 in d3 dual 2 ohm subs with d5 600.4 amp. Need to know how to wire subs. They were in a box already I assumed they were wire at 2 o When i hooked One up to my amp it hit really for Jus...


what wattage are the subs and amp? if your subs are more wattage than your amp, your amp will blow fuses as cant handle the output to your subs. for example. you have 2 500 watt subs and a 300 watt amp, that is no good as amp isnt powerful enough. if you have 2 500 watt subs you need at least a 1200 watt amp to power them both. 200 watt more than the combined wattage of subs as amps should never be turned up to max as they tend to blow and overheat more quickly. 80% volume on amps is reccomended by installers and manufactures.

How i wire my sub to my jbl gto301-1iiamp with 2 Hifonics HFi12D4


If the amp is 1200 watts at 2 ohm stable you will want to set up the speakers as parrallel and bridge the amp. That means conncect the speakers with + to + and - to -. Look at the amp connections. Usually thereare connects that look like this:
+ -
+ - + -

If yours look like this use the diagram on top. You will use the + for the left ouput on the amp to the right - on the amp. This will allow you to use all the power from the amp. Be sure to lower the gain as to not pop the speakers or amp.

Can i hook up a powered 12'sub to a Pheonix Gold xs2500 amp without blowing the speaker


First I hope you remove the speaker wires from the speaker that come from the built in amplifire. You cannot hook the powered sub to the amp without doing that first. Then all you need to do is run speaker wire from the sub out of the box to the amp. In no way can you hook up any other part of the powered sub, but the sub itself, to the amp. If you know the wattage of the sub and the ohms then wire it to the amp correctly. Your phoenix amp will put out 125 watts x 2 at 4 ohms and 250 watts x 2 at 2 ohms and 500 watts x 1 at 4 ohms bridged. Remember, only the sub itself in the sub enclosure can be connected to the amp. Hope this helped you. Let me know if you need more help.

I have 2 kicker l7 12s 4ohm speakers and was


Hello gonenutz14,

It depends on how you define the "best way". Driving each sub with a separate 750 watt amp will result in about 50 percent more power than having them share the output from a single 1000 watt amp. But with 2 amps, there's more wiring issues to contend with and the adjustments are more complex. The 2 750 watt amps will cost more than a single 1000. Plus if the 1000 watt amp is stable to 1 ohm, the power difference will actually be less than 50 percent because of the lower impedance. But if the 750 watt amps are also stable to 1 ohm and their outputs can be combined, we're back to 2 being better than 1.

I'd say that the simplest, most economical way is to use a single amp. If maximum power to the subs is the highest priority, and cost and wiring is not an issue, then 2 is better.

Hope this helps.

I have a memphis amp that puts out 250 watts @ 4ohms and 500 watts @ 2 ohms. I want to hook up 3 sony 12'' explods @ 4 ohms a piece. How do I wire them to the amp to get the maximum output of 500 watts?...


well to be honest your amp probly cant handel 3 speakers because of the impedance levels so just hook up 2 bridges out to + to - on one Speaker then from that same speaker run + and - to the next one

A= amp
S= speakers

How to measure watts


You need a Volt Meter and an Ohm Meter. P = VI & I = V/r, so Power = (Volt^2)/Ohms .

You can get the ohms by hooking them up to the subwoofer input wires, and you get the volts by hooking up to the amp output terminals/wires. Although, amps will put out different voltages for different frequences, this should give you ballpark estimates.
