You can only do that if your sub has a switch on it otherwise just hook it up and pound it

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

How do I hook up two p3 4 ohm subs to a 2 ohm


You would hook that up by connecting positive to positive and negative to negative. Then connecting those connections to the matching connections of the amp channel you are using depending if you are using a mono or dual channel amp. Keep in mind that if you are trying to hook this up in bridged mode. It cuts your ohms by half, meaning it will be running at 1ohm. My recommendation would be to run both speakers in series. Positive to negative going to one speaker to the other creating an 8ohm so when you bridge the amp, that's if you are. You'll be running at 4ohms giving you a better cleaner sound 1ef8df95-a777-45c2-94f3-f560ae3fd5ef.jpg

Phoenix gold MS-2250. Can I run 2 DVC kicker L7s bridged at 1ohm without problems? Trying to get the most power I can. I'm running a 200 amp altenator with 0/1 gauge power wire and 10 farrad cap block. Do...


for better power yes one ohm but amp must be 1 ohm stable.and both subs will have to be 4 ohm subs to get the 1 ohm needed .If its a class D amp both speakers outs are bridged internally so either is ok to use look see if there is a bridging line on speakers that runs from one side to other and will say bridging. if not any side will work.a manu would help you find yours or you can look one up online.al

How many svc subs at 4ohm does it take to get this amp to 1ohm stable and can you reccomend a good sub combo for this amp whether it be dvc or svc


It depends if your sub is 4ohm svc, or 2ohm svc. 4ohm would take 4 subs wired in parallel, 2ohm would take 2 subs wired in parallel. But for a amp that big, subs that'll handle it are definitely gonna be dvc. I'd recommend 2 Orion 4ohm dvc hcca's. They come in either 15in or 12in. the 15s are louder if you have the space for them. As far as wiring goes, wire the voice coils on the subs in parallel to 2ohm per sub, then wire the 2 subs in parallel to 1ohm. Goodluck and congrats on the equipment, Orion is about as good as you can go for subs and amps. just be ready to lay down some dynamat cuz this system'll bloww your vehicle apart! good luck...

I have 2 jl-w6 subs n a orion hcca 250 amp how do i run wirering


Hello brianmitchel,

From what I am able to determine, the Orion HCCA250 is a bridgeable 2-channel amp that is stable to 1ohm when bridged and outputs 800 watts RMS into that load.

The JL W6's in both 10" and 12" versions are dual voice coil with 4ohm coils so they can be wired to present either an 8ohm load (series) or a 2ohm load (parallel). They can handle 600 watts RMS.

With this combination, the best configuration would be to wire the sub voice coils in parallel for a 2ohm load and then parallel both subs to the amp bridged terminals for a final impedance of 1ohm. The subs will each be getting 400 watts.

In any event, I would not recommend running subs in series. There is some evidence for distortion being caused by something termed "back EMF".

Hope this helps.

Subwoofer Dual voicecoil wiring


1 ohm will draw too much current.those are designed for a 2 channel 2 ohm drive for each sub.running 4 ohms will be easier on the amplifier and since impedance is not constant it may run 3 ohms at some frequencies anyway. another solution if your power amp is bridgeable....put the coils in series on each woofer making 4 ohms.then parallel the two 4 ohms to make 2 ohms and run the amp in bridge mode at 2 ohms.since bass is omnidirectional,you can do it

How do i hook them up to work for 2ohm's


Hello rcantu76,

If your CVR's are 2ohm (model Nr. 07CVR122), you connect the voice coils in series and then parallel both subs to the amp. If the subs are 4ohm (model Nr. 07CVR122), they cannot be wired to 2ohms. Your choices are 1ohm or 4ohms. According to Rockford-Fosgate's data on the P1000-1bd, it is stable at 1ohm.

To wire the 122's at 2ohms, you would connect the sub voice coils in series (jumper one positive to the other negative on each sub), and then connect the remaining positives and negatives to the amp.

To wire the 124's at 1ohm, you would connect all of the positives and all of the negatives together to the amp.

Hope this helps.

I want to hook up my 2 quad coil woofers to a 1ohm amp but


I would look up "series" and "parallel" wiring on the net. Parallel will lower your ohms, which is good- especially for you since your amp is 1ohm. use 1 channel of your amp (unbridged...bridging an amp could increase output, but will Raise the ohms) connect the positive terminal with a wire that goes to the positive on your first sub, and from there, connect a wire from that same positive terminal to the positive terminal on your second sub. do the same thing with the neg. wire. This is called parallel wiring.

Soundstream rub 500-1 mono....


U need to make sure your subs are wired correctly. And u need to make sure all your speakers are at the same ohm load. If u hook up two subs on one channel and two more on the other one u need to make sure that your subs are all 2ohm or 4ohm subs cause if u got two 4ohm subs ran parrallel then u will have a 2ohm setting and if both of them are 2ohm subs them your load will be a 1ohm load witch could harm your amp unless its an 1ohm stable amplifier.

Wiring


You have 2 subs and 2 amps right?In that case make sure that the amps are capable of stable 1ohm load and also you'll need a lot of power and 4 gauge power cable for each amp with fuse of course.
Now....take one sub and connect the (-) with the (-) and the (+) with the (+).Now you have one (+) and one(-) to connect to the amp.Do the same with the other sub and you're ready to rock!!
