Hi, if you wire all voice coils in parallel, you will get down to 1.5 ohms. That is the lowest you can go with these 2 subs. Just hook the amps' positive to all 4 positive speaker terminals and the amp negative to all 4 speaker negative terminals. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I have two audiobahn aw1206t 12in. subs in a box hooked to a 100.1 american bass amp its 1000 watt mono block. i also ran a capacitor due to my lights dimming. but for some reason my amp keeps kicking over...


This could be caused due to the impedance load being to low. Your amp is stable to 2 ohm load however its very possible that you have your subs wired to a 1 ohm load that would cause the amp to go into protect mode. The subs you have are dual 4 ohm voice coils and would need to be wired in series/parallel. I've included a link that will show you how the subs should be wired.

I have a amp with switch that says high power & high current


The ohms rating measures the electrical resistance of the subs(impedance). On the subs there is usually a label that tells you what the impedance is for that particular sub,example= 4 ohms . The only way you can get to a 1 ohm load or less with a pair of tens is if each sub has dual voice coils that are 4 ohms each wired in parallel. Generally Sony xplod's are a single coil 4 ohm woofer-yours might be the exception in this case .To figure out your resistance say with 2 subs that are 4 ohms you have to know how you intend to wire them for instance if your amp puts out a fair amount of power @2 ohms and thats the number you want to hit than you will want to wire the subs in parallel( + to + and - to -) wiring in parallel lowers the resistance.(ohms) If you want to hit 1 ohm and you have dual 4 ohm coils then wire all 4 coils in parallel and that will then be a 1 ohm load. Its simply a matter of dividing the ohms by the number of speakers that you intend to connect. if you had 3 10s that were 4 ohms each and you wired them in parallel the ohms would be 1.33 (as 4 divided by 3 is 1.33)(4 divided by 2 is 2) (4 divided by 4 is 1) On the flip side wiring in series will raise your impedance-a pair of 4 ohm subs wired in series gives you an 8 ohm load 3 subs gives you 12 ohms and so on. I wouldnt worry about the high current switch unless youre planning on taking it down below 1 ohm which it sounds like you arent currently set up for.

I need to hook up two audiobahn A1200Q subs to a A1300hcq amp


The amplifier is only stable to 2 ohms.
Assuming the cubs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils - a 2 ohm load with 2 subs is not possible.
You can only wire up 1 dual 4 ohm voicecoil sub (both positives to amp... and both negatives to amp) to get a 2 ohm mono load.

I have 4 gauge wire to my audiobahn2200 htc and it cuts off after a while and smells like its burning out or something. hooked up bridge and 2 ohmed. there audiobahn dub1200 sires subs


I would take an ohm meter and check the ohms on the subs sounds like you are dropping below 2 ohms.If the subs are new then that is normal its the coating on the voice coil getting hot but it will pass in time. I would recommend a 1-2 farrad cap for that set-up though.

How 2 wire 3 jl audio w6 v2


Hello mikey4569mky,

Unless your amp is stable below 1 ohm, there's really only one wiring solution. And that is to series the voice coils making each sub 8 ohms, then parallel all 3 subs to the amp for a 2.67 ohm load. If you parallel the voice coils and then parallel the subs, the impedance will be 0.67 ohms, much too low for most amps.

You could parallel the voice coils and then series the subs for a 6 ohm load, but the amp won't put as many watts into a 6 ohm load. Most are optimized for 4 ohms or 2 ohms. And it's not good to run subs in series anyway.

Here's the wiring diagram.

Hope this helps.

I have a audiobahn a400t and im running 2-12''jh45 mtx jackhammers the speakers are wired in parallel stabel @ 2or1 ohm. the speakers are in a ported box. how do i run my wires to my hook these up right to...


Hello rattle822,

A pair of JH4512-04's can be wired to 2 ohms if the subs themselves are paralleled. There's only one voice coil and it's 4 ohm. If wired in series, the final impedance to the amp would be 8 ohms. They cannot be wired to 1 ohm.

In bridged mode, your 4-channel amp is only stable down to 4 ohms. You can bridge 2 of the channels to provide a relatively low 200 watts RMS X 2. The best power solution for your subs would be to bridge channels 1 and 2 and wire one sub to it. Likewise, bridge channels 3 and 4 and connect the other sub. If you connect both subs in parallel, the impedance will be too low causing the amp to overheat and possible fail.

As for the settings: Low pass filter on, crossover somewhere between 80-100, input levels to match your receiver, and bass boost to your personal preference.

Hope this helps.

Sub Wiring


Hello jtkpay,

Rockford-Fosgate claims their latest V-power 1500bd is stable to 1 ohm, and I would think that your Oldschool would also be. The 2 wiring options for 3 subs with 2 ohm dvc would give you a 1.34 ohm load and a 3 ohm load. The 1.34 ohm option would mean more watts to the subs, but the amp will run hotter. The diagrams look like this:

67e2576.gif

c9227fe.gif
Using just 2 of the Kickers, you can wire 3 different ways, with final impedances of 0.5 ohms, 2 ohms, or 8 ohms. You do not want the 0.5 ohm load. It's bad for the amp. You don't want the 8 ohm load. It doesn't allow the amp to produce as much power. So that leaves only the 2 ohm, with coils in series and subs in parallel. It looks like this:

Hope this helps. If it does, please rate as "FixYa".

I have 15" audiobahn subs, but I need the right wiring


Contact company the can send you diagrams or go to a stero stop they should be able to help because some shop have wire diagrams for best way to get the most thump in you r trunk.Make sure you know the ohms your subs is 1-2-4 ohms.Should say on the back of your sub and how many contacts are on in two or four.

Tryin to hook up 3 10


The Class D amps from JL are good down to 1.5ohm. The class A/B amps are good down to 2ohm.
I take it you have (3) 4 ohm subs? Wired in parallel?
Consider looking for an amp that is 1 ohm stable for this load such as audiobahn, or kicker.

SOUND Q SERIES
DUAL 6-OHM CONFIGURATION
Accommodating the rising trend of triple-subwoofer applications, Audiobahn’s Sound Q subwoofers come in dual 6-ohm configurations. This allows three Sound Q subwoofers to be wired in a 1- or 4-ohm operation. You now have the option to use a wider range of amplifiers to fit the needs of your specific application.

MULTI-CONNECT LUG LOCK TERMINALS
Audiobahn’s patented Multi-Connect Lug Lock Terminals offer increased versatility in wiring multiple subwoofers to an amplifier or to another voice coil. Multi-connect terminals allow you to use single wire connections in each terminal rather than combining multiple wires into one terminal. This feature allows you to use a full 8-gauge wire in each terminal.

COMMON FEATURES
Dual 6 Ohm VOICE COIL
Multi-connect Lug Lock Terminals

The Link below should answer all your questions.
Also remember to try to keep the lengths of the jumpers the same. I would make all the connections inside the box then use the teminal block of the box to connect to the amp.
Keep in mind that you can only get 1 Ohm if you use 3 woofers.
Your configuration allows for 1.5 Ohm
