What is their ohms at the moment. If they are 8 ohms the will become 4o hms in parallel, 4 ohms will become 2 ohms in parallel. Since your audiobahns are dual four ohms coils one speaker wired in parallel gives you 2 ohms and both wired together in parallel will give you 1 ohms. You will need to wire them in series parallel to to keep two ohms and that is a waste of power. Kickers are good amps, with a little extra cooling the amp should sustain the 1 ohm capability of your parallel connection or trade in for a 1ohm stable amp

My kicker dx 500.1 and my xpliod tens worked for all of ten seconds before the protect light went red then green keeps doing that


You are running more then 1 speaker on a 1 channel amp. You need to verify how many ohms your subs are, and what ohm you are wiring your subs to run at. Your amp is only capable of running at 2 ohms.

Here is a link to figure out how to wire them correctly.

Can i hook up my sub if it's wired to a 2 ohm and my amp is 4 ohm


Hi martineztag
You should never connect a load of an impedance less than the min the amp is able to drive. This can have disastrous consequences that may easily result in failure of the amps output stages. You need to use a different configuration that does not overload the amp in this manner for safe operation.

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.

I dont know which wires go where on the back of my sub woofer. its an audiobahn aw1251t woofer, 400 watts


I used to have exactly the same subwoofer. It has dual voice coils which are driven independently.
Hope the diagrams help out. Just make sure you know how many ohms your amp is.

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.
