I need to wire 3 woofers but 2 are dual voice coil and one is single voice coil


sure, if you wish to wire them all together, wire the first dual voice coil subs first voice coil negative to 2nd voice coil positive, second voice coil negative to single voice coil sub positive, and single voice coil negative to 2nd dual voice coil subs 1st voice coil positve (again with the second dual voice coil sub, run the first voice coil negative to the 2nd voice coil positve) your speaker leads will be attatched to first dual voice coils 1st voice coil positive, and 2nd dual voice coils 2nd voice coil negative)

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.

I need to know how to bridge the mtx speaker 4500


I assume you mean wiring a dual 4 ohm voice coil sub to a 2 ohm load, right?

Follow closely

Go from positive of the source (amp or positive post in box) to the positive of both voice coils.

Then go fromt he positive of the source (amp or positive post in box) to the negative of both voice coils.

You will be running two length of speaker wire for this. It's the easy way and makes sure that each voice coil gets clean power.

This is called a parallel set up and will bring two 4 ohm voice coils to a 2 ohm load.

Happy Wiring

How do i install 2 ckicker cvr to my amp


Here are a couple of diagrams 2+4 ohm dual voice coil wiring.

Option 1 (parallel/parallel) = 1 ohm load
Voice coils wired in parallel, speakers wired in parallel
Recommended Amplifier: Stable at 1 ohm mono 2_4ohm_dvc_1ohm.gif
Option 2 (series/parallel) = 4 ohm load
Voice coils wired in series, speakers wired in parallel
Recommended Amplifier: Stable at 4, 2, or 1 ohm mono 2_4ohm_dvc_4ohm.gif

Option 1 (parallel/parallel) = 0.5 ohm load
Voice coils wired in parallel, speakers wired in parallel
Recommended Amplifier: Stable at 1/2 ohm mono 2_2ohm_dvc_05ohm.gif
Option 2 (series/parallel) = 2 ohm load

How do you wire up a dual voice coil lanzar 15 for 4 ohm?


Hello dexterchapma,

The only way to wire a single 4ohm DVC sub to present a 4ohm load is to just connect one voice coil. If you wire the coils in parallel, you get a 2ohm load. If you wire them in series, you get an 8ohm load. But it will work great with just one voice coil. Or if you really want to use both voice coils, and your amp isn't stable at 2ohms, wire the voice coils in series and present an 8ohm load to the amp. It'll work fine, it just won't deliver quite as much power.

Hope this helps.

Is a 15 w3 d-4 better then a jl audio w3-d2


Hello,

All of the JL W3 subwoofers are essentially the same. The "d2" and "d4" suffix refers to the voice coil configuration. "d2" = dual two ohm coils, "d4" = dual four ohm coils. Depending on the number of subwoofers in your system and the amplifier(s) you are using to power them, one or the other of the configurations may be "better".

Generally, you want to have the load on your amp to have the lowest possible impedance consistent with the amps capability to operate properly with that load. It's normally referred to as "impedance matching". Greater power (watts) is produced, and louder sound, when the amp can deliver power at a lower impedance.

If your amp is only capable of supplying power at 4 ohms, you want to make sure that the configuration of your sub(s) represents a 4-ohm load. If the load is higher, say 8 ohms, then your amp can only deliver about half the power of which it is capable. It would be OK to run them a 8 ohms, but they would not be as loud. On the other hand, if the load was lower, say 2 ohms, your amplifier would soon overheat and go into protect mode.

So the trick is to first decide on how many subs you want. Then choose an amp/sub combination that "matches".

The DVC or dual voice coils just gives you more options in selecting and configuring. Say you want 2 subs and you are going with the 15w3 d-2. Your amp is the JL Audio G-MAX monoblock. The amp puts out 1200Wx1 Chan. at 2 ohms or 600Wx1 Chan. at 4 ohms. You would wire both of your subs voice coils in series making each sub 4 ohms, then wire the 2 subs in parallel to your amp making the final load 2 ohms, the best "match" for your amp.

Three jl w3 single coil


You can't run parrallel on 3 single voice coil subwoofers. If you run all the negatives from each coil and possitives from each coil to one terminal you will be dividing the ohms by 3. I don't think JL ever made a single voice coil 2 ohm subwoofer though. If you ran a parrallel on 3 8 ohms you would be at 2.7 ohms. 3 4 ohm would put you down to 1.3

How should I wire my 3 subs to the 500/1 amp???????


First of all how many ohm's are each subwoofer rated at . Are the subwoofers dual voice coil or single voice coil. Once I know that I can help you. I think the JL amp is not recommended below a 2ohm load.
