You will have to wire each sub to an individual channel. you cannot bridge the amp, because it is not stable at 2 ohms. You could bridge it if you wire the subs in series, but you will get more power by committing each sub to an individual channel.

They were bought off the back of the truck but great speakers.One of my Vega LS 15 blew a woofer. The 10s are 600W- 2ohms. I hooked them to a H Kardon 3470-100W 8 ohms.Will that damage anything?


In a word, YES! The HK is designed for a minimum 4 ohm load. You can wire (2) 2 ohm speakers IN SERIES to get a 4 ohm load. Do NOT run one of them at 2 ohms as it will overload and damage your amp. Too nice an amp to abuse it like that...

I have the xterminator 2000d amp and I am wanting to wire two 12s and one 15 to the one amp. Both Kicker speakers are 4 Ohm SVC. Am I able to do this safely?


Wire the two kickers in Parallel, this will half the resistance of 8 ohms to 4 ohms and match the 15" speaker on the other channel.

Can someone please show me how to wire my subs to amp.. i have a 2600 watt planet audio 2 channel amp (2 ohm stable) and my subs are soundstream tarantulas t4 12s 900/1800 watts total. they are 1 ohm subs...


for your subs and amp the best way would be for the speakers to be wired in series1ch (mono or bridged)to have a 4 ohm load to your amp stable at 2 ohms
see pic for wiring diagram for 2 1 ohm dvc subs wired in series.
you will need more than one speaker wire for wiring the subwoofers coils(positive & negative terminals) together
hope this helps :~)

Wats the best way to hook up 3 hifonic hfx12d 12s. Dvc 4ohmd to a 2 channel 2600 watt planet audio. Amp is 2 ohm stable.


Wire each sub 8 ohms(sieries) than connect them in parallel, bridged @ amp, final impedence will be 2.6 ohms.

Amp and speaker wiring


if the 12's are single 4 ohm coils then i would run them parrelle to the amp bridge to one channel. this will be 2 ohms bridge and will be the best and most power.

I have 2 dvc 4 ohm alpine type r 15's and 2 svc american bass


Hi mate very nice amp you got there here is the specs for it



Model: MA Audio HK401SX
Hard Kore Series 1800 Watt 1 Channel High Performance Class X Car Amplifier
1 x 1800W RMS @ 0.5 Ohm Mono
1 x 1200W RMS @ 1 Ohm Mono
1 x 650W RMS @ 2 Ohm Mono
1 x 500W RMS @ 4 Ohm Mono
Fully Unregulated MOSFET Power Supply
2 Ohm Stable @ Mono
1 Ohm Stable @ Mono
0.5 Ohm Stable @ Mono

if you have 2 12s just bridge them and you will have 650wrms at 2ohm running to them or one sub at 4 ohm 500w rms ps they should pump iam running 2 12s with just 360rms at 2ohm and they do the job good luck

rewire the subs-each sub you want in series=8 ohms per sub-then at the amp wire the two 8 ohm subs in parallel which brings the ohms back down to 4 ohms which is optimal for the amp and it shouldnt shut down on you any more-try that-good luck

Amp turns off


You did not specify the model you have - however the Flex series is only stable with a load of 4 ohm mono (bridged) and 2 ohm (stereo).
You are driving the amplifier to work too hard, and it is shutting itself down.
Re-wire using one subwoofer (bridged) or wiring the subwoofers on seperate channels.

Running 4 12s with two insignia 1000 watt amps


Use a pair of two-channel amps that are two-ohm stable, and wire a pair of subs to each amp. Wire them in parallel so the amps see two ohms (wiring in series will show four ohms). Doing this effectively "doubles" the power of the amps. If the amps are not two-ohm stable, they'll fail. Parallel wiring means putting the positive wire of sub 1 to the positive terminal of channel 1 on the amp, and the negative wire of sub 1 on the negative terminal of channel 2. Do the opposite for the second sub. This will give you a LOT of bass response as long as your sub enclosures are properly sized for the speakers.
