Hello... I can help you with this question. Yes it is possible to do this, but you will have to use a 2 ohm stable mono block amplifier in order to do this. By connecting both positives together and both negatives together, you will be running a 2 ohm load. So if your amp is a monoblock amp, connections will be simple as tieing all the positives together and the negatives together and just hook to the amp. If you are using a 2 channel amplifier that is bridgeable, then you will need to series the subwoofers to an 8 ohm load and then bridge the amplifier to 1 channel. The way you series the subwoofers is take the positive wire in the box and hook to the positive on subwoofer #1. Take the negative wire in the box and hook to the negative on subwoofer #2. Then take a piece of wire and hook the negative from subwoofer #1 to the positive connector on subwoofer #2. Then hook the wires to the amplifier. To bridge the amplifier (if it is a 2 channel bridgeable) would be to use the left positive and the right negative, but check the amplifier for markings to confirm this. If you have any other questions, feel free to let me know and I will help you out! Hope this helps!!

this is a mono block amplifier ,both positives are the same inside the amp and both negatives are the same ,there is 4 terminals to make it easier to wire 2 speakers . Use either positive and either negative ,with this speaker ,inside the box you can wire both positives together and negatives together (parrallel) this should be 3 ohms and the amp should run smoothly ,maybe a little warm but that amp can take it .

I need to see a wiring diagram of an MPX 210 speaker box. My brother-in-law bought one from a friend and someone completely jacked the wiring. I just need to see how it should be wired. Pictures would be...


It really depends on what subs you are mounting in the box. If you are mounting single voice coil subs, it's easy. positive of the sub goes to positive on the inside of the box and the negative of the sub goes to the negative of the box. Then you would repeat the process for the other sub. Then wire the box to the amp using the push or screw terminals.

Now if you have dual voice coil subs, that's where it can get tricky. You really have to know what amp your using and what ohm load it can handle, and how many channels you will be using.

I'm going to give you an example that has two dual 4 ohm voice coil subs. Let's assume you will be hooking them to a 2 channel amplifier that is 2 ohm stable.

wire the positive of both voice coils to the positive post of the box. then wire both negatives of the voice coils to the negative of the box. Repeat the process with the other sub. This is called a parallel set up. Two 4 ohm voice coils wired this way will produce a 2 ohm load. since your amp is 2 channel, you will hook the positive and negative to the positive and negative of one side of the box, then repeat with the other channel to the other side. This will allow the most power to come out of a 2 ohm stable amplifier.

If you have something other than the equipment I gave you an example of, repost with your equipment specs and I will walk you through it.

Inside the speaker cabinet, is blue wire positive or negative?


Hi, It all depends on the combination of the wires inside the cabinet.

It can be Blue and white ,and another color combination.

But the blue color is always Positive , While the White is negative.

To test, you can use a battery to check. When you put the blue wire on positive, you will notice the clarity of sound that comes out, other than when you use the white as positive.

Hope that helps.

You can write back if you need more help on that.

Thanks for using fixya......

I do not know how to wire nenwood kdc-422 to a 94 buick century?


You should have a wire harness pigtail that comes with your kenwood.
you can also purchase a harness adapter plug/pigtail at most audio auto stereo shops to fit your car make and model.
Be sure to save the packaging because the plastic bag has the color/codes for the harness. This harness is designed to plug right into the factory plug inside the dash just like the stock radios do.
All you need to do is splice the kenwood cables to the adapter plug pigtail you purchase for your car.
match up each wire as described here:

8 wires on my subwoofer??


"One has positive and negative input, another positive and negative output (red and black on each)"

Just from your description, it sounds like pos/neg input are the 12 volt pos neg supply for the amp inside the subwoofer. Red is pos, black is neg.

"positive and negative output (red and black on each)"

This sounds like it's used if you want to proved 12 volt pos/neg to another component.

"and a third wire with left input right input positive and negative (blue, red, yellow and black)"

This is for the cables coming from the "subwoofer out" on the amp. This is 4 wires altogether -- correct?
