Yes it can be done, although you may want to figure out how much load is currently on your service, and how much your going to add with the sub panel. Your best bet is to call an electrician to see if this is possible and to possibly do the work as well to insure safety.

I have 2 12 inch kicker rt dual 2 ohm subs. On a kicker cx1200.1 i want to kno how to hook it up to 2ohm to the amp. And if i can add another 10 inch kicker rt 2ohm sub in the future.


Do to the impedance Of your sub u can't run it @2ohms its going to either be @1ohm or 4ohms and your amp isn't 1ohm stable and u will risk damaging your amp. So your only option is to run it @4ohms and on a good note your sub is 100-600 watts RMS and your amp will push 400-500 watts RMS @4ohms. Now if you want to run 2 sub's in the future That amp will work perfect because it pushes 1,200watts RMS @2ohms and to wire your 2 sub's @1ohm just follow the steps in the image below. Hope this helped.25345194-v0hbouy2nvquqteoroa5j5rq-3-0.png

I have a 100amp service and had to put in a sub box (50 amp 2 pole bridge) which contains (1) 30 amp 2 pole and (2) 20 amp singles. the 30 (220) is for the dryer and that is tripping the 30, 50, and the...


If the wiring is OK, the problem may be the dryer. You may be getting a dead short somewhere. If the dryer runs, then the breakers trip when the heat comes on that may be your answer.

I am installing a sub panel in a detached building from my house. Which is 100 ft away. I plan to have four separate circuits. One that will service a ceiling fan and 3 for plug ins that will only run a TV...


You could use 6/3 with ground. You must take an equipment ground conductor along with your current carrying conductors. Still drive a ground rod at the building, and add a seperate ground bar in the sub panel. Connect your equipment grounding conductor from main building along with the equipment grouding conductor to the ground rod. Do not bond the neutral in the sub panel to ground. Be aware you will still have some voltage drop, so a 220V air conditioner might be better.

Subwoofers don't work


the voice coils are probably fried. you may want to check your amps to see if they are putting out dc voltage. you may be abel to find a place that can fix the subs. otherwise you will need to replace them.

Where is best location to mount speakers besides trunk and trunk deck & doors?


Kick Panals are good, boxes are expensive though as they must be custom fit. Dashboard mounts, prolly only for componant speakers not subs. But if you wanna add speakers, you can always put more in the doors, trunk, or trunk deck to. Or replace your factory trunk deck, or door panals, and customize them to fit as many speakers as you like, have fun with it..

I have all the wires running right but for some reason my amp is not picking up or pushing my subs. could the rca jacks be messed up on the stereo?


According to the specs for the xo 1945- the output is; 50W x 4 Max Power Output , and I do not see a pre amp output listed. So I think to connect subs, you will need a separate AMP.
The way this works; the rear speaker wires from the xo 1945 hook into the Add-on amp, for example a 4 channel amp. In a 4 channel amp, the rear speakers come off two of the channels of the add-on, and the subs come off the other two channels. There is also the option of bridging two channels for more output power to ONE sub.
You did not mention what size sub(s) you were thinking of adding, but keep in mind that the ox 1945 puts 50 watts MAX per channel. So, if you add two 12" subs and a 1500 watt amp to drive them, your total sound is going to be very uneven.
If you go on line and look up auto audio or amps, you'll get a good idea of all the Sub and amp options that are available.... Hope this helps.

I need to add an electric panel box!


Before you contemplate doing this I would check to see if the 200 amp wiring to your home can accommodate 300 amps. If not, I would not touch it. If it can then you can do it ever so carefully to make sure you do not light yourself up! I would kill your main 200 amp breaker and then tap into each existing branch a tap that will take at least 50 amps for each of the two legs on your new 100 amp breaker box. Good luck
