Hi, I want to know what is the best way to wire these subs. (Pair). I have heard of several ways. I have a 4 channel amp the soundstream picasso 4.760. Bridged it produces the most power. I was told that these speakers can not be wired at 4 ohms? What do u suggest to get the most power and sound quality?

    The speakers have diagrams for 2, 4, & 8 ohm. These are the specs

    Dual voice coil
    Impedence: dual 4 ohm
    The 4 channel amp produces the most power at 4 ohm bridged.

Hello , I will be glad to help you.As far as your speakers..It depends on what impedance your subs are rated and if your Picasso amp can be bridged at 4ohm or 8ohm. If your subs are 8ohm each you can wire your subs in parallel and wire them to picasso amp in bridged mode. If your subs are 4ohm each.Then wire the subs in series then wire them to amp in bridged mode..caution do not wire subs in parallel if they are 4ohm .This would bring impedance to about 2 ohms and would be harsh for amp to handle...Goodluck

    if subs are 8ohms each then wire them in parallel .This will give you 4ohm and should be okay for amp in bridged mode.Just make sure to adjust gain on amp properly .

    wire the two voice coils on each sub in series .positive from one coil to negative from other coil ( same speaker).You should have 2 terminals left ..do the same to other speaker..Then wire the two speakers in parallel..This will give you a 4ohm load to bridged amp..

Can someone please show me how to wire my subs to amp.. i have a 2600 watt planet audio 2 channel amp (2 ohm stable) and my subs are soundstream tarantulas t4 12s 900/1800 watts total. they are 1 ohm subs...

for your subs and amp the best way would be for the speakers to be wired in series1ch (mono or bridged)to have a 4 ohm load to your amp stable at 2 ohms
see pic for wiring diagram for 2 1 ohm dvc subs wired in series.
you will need more than one speaker wire for wiring the subwoofers coils(positive & negative terminals) together
hope this helps :~)

Hi this is amber I have 2x4 ohm qvc audiobahn abass2012P how would I correctly run them to get best bass n max power efficiency I have a soundstream Picasso 1000watt 4 channel bridge able amp to hook em up...

I assume you are replacing the built-in Audiobahn power amplifier with your 4 channel Soundstream amp. If so, you can set the Soundstream for bridge mode which should net you 2 high power channels of [email protected] or 500Wrms total power (if the speakers are quad VC), or alternatively, non bridged for 4x125Wrms (if the speakers are dual VC). You can see why below.
Next, you need to confirm each subwoofers coil configuration as follows: If each woofer is quad, there will be 8 connectors; if dual VC, then there will be 4 connectors. For dual VC, if each VC is 4ohm, you can choose between 8 or 2 ohms by series or parallel wiring. If each VC is 2 ohm, you can have 4 ohms in series to use. This can be determined with an ohm meter across one set of VC terminals. If you can get 4 ohm for each speaker, this will allow you to use the 2 channel bridged mode with each speaker getting the full 250W. If each VC is 2 ohm, use non bridged mode and run each of the 4 channels to each VC. For this case, use a 2 to 1 RCA jack to sum the two channels for each speaker on the amp's input side to make the signal 2 channel instead of 4 channel. Below are examples of quad and dual VC for reference only, the wiring may not match your setup which will depend on your VC resistance (impedance) measurement. Don't forget to set your HPF(High Pass Filter) as this is a subwoofer setup.

How do I wire up my 4subs in bridged to my peace 2600

Hi,

Please state the subs impedance, but assuming 4 subs with 8Ohm Voice Coil you CAN'T run them in parallel in Bridge Mono because this amp's minimum impedance is 4Ohm in bridge and 2Ohm stereo, maybe a series/parallel connection work, but what's the advantage to run them in Bridge mode? This amp delivers 900W per channel at 4Ohm, you can run a pair paralleled for each channel in a safe way and without the high-risk of your amp being destroyed, besides, amp power at 4Ohm Bridged is NOT recommended for continuous use, let me know your results...

Have a 4 voice coil sub and dont know how to wire it

OK, first make sure what ohm load your amp can handle. This is always the first step. There are a couple of ways to wire this thing.

1. 2 channel, 2 ohm stable amp. Go from the positive of the left channel to the positive of two of the voice coils. Then go from the negative of the left channel to the negative of the matching voicecoils. Repeat with the right channel to the other two voice coils. You have set up a pair of parallel series. Four 4 ohm voice coils are now two 2 ohm loads.

2. Monoblock amp (single channel) 1 ohms stable amp. Go from the positive of the amp to all 4 of the positive posts on the sub. Then go from the negative on the amp to all 4 of the negative posts on the sub. You now have a 4 way parallel set up giving you a 1 ohm load.

Hope this helps

Have a 1996 soundstream reference 1000s amp 2 chan. Want to hook up 2 2011 12 inch kicker cvt woofers 4ohm. What is the best way to run this set up?

I have Ref-1000s with two Pioneer TS-W1200C 4-ohm subs bridged in series. So it is 8-ohm mono load, easy for an amplifier, long durability, less heating, low current consumption. I have heard that this amp might break if used with low impedance loads.

What is the very best way to wire 3 sets of speaks and 2 subs through a 4 ch. amp and a 2 Ch. amp.?Thank you, Paul

Ummmm Im gonna give this a try-If it were me i would run the 4 channel ground pounder on the doors and rear panels -the front 2 channels run the component set exclusively at 2 ohms per channell and run the 8 inch 3 ways in parallel with the rear deck speakers for a combined load of 2 ohms per channel on the rear channells-naturally the 8 inchers and the 6.5's are going to be able to handle a little bit more bottom end than the component set so you can feed a little more midbass to those rear channels- I dont know the resistance of the coils on your subs or the model of the MA amp you are using but if you can throw 600 or 700 on your subs that should be sweet enough- hope its not a waste of your time or maybe you already tried it set up that way-good luck though

Powering 4 6x9 speakers, need amp

Hi firstof all your deck isnt really putting out 52 watts x4 more like 17-22w rmsx4 ,companies like to throw out some crazy numbers it seems. If your into Kenwood try out a KAC-8404 4-channel on the mids/highs that will put 50 w x4 rms at 4 ohms or if you wanna go a lil louder try the kenwood x600f that will throw 100w rms on each 6x9 at 4 ohms no problem. My system is very similar to yours but running 4 pioneer 5x7's in all the doors and powering it with the 8404 its loud and clean ,fan cooled and no problems at all. My subs are a pair of 15's soundstream t-4's powered by an Alphasonik pma2500a its throwing 800w rms on each sub running in stereo at 2 ohms.It can drown out the mids if i set it that way but my mids /highs cant take as much power as your kenwoods can or else id step up to the x600f too.

About 6 months ago i had installed the mtx thunder 6500d amp to run my 2 rockford fosgate power T1 12inch subs and every thing was great untill recently it stop puting out sound it still powers up and...

good morning and welcome to fixya. not a bad setup you have here at all, you ned to start by checking the speaker wires inside the box to the connector inside and then the wires from connector to amp on outside. if everything looks fine there, then you need to check the amp for power out of the rca plugs to make sure the channel is not dead. if you are looking for a new amp you can try several different ones from fosgates new line up to soundstream's. im running 4 polk momo 12's on the tarantula amp and love it. they are great amps. hifonics also has a new line up pretty cool stuff, heard really good things about there stuff to. good luck and let me know so i can help you out.

Running 4 12s with two insignia 1000 watt amps

Use a pair of two-channel amps that are two-ohm stable, and wire a pair of subs to each amp. Wire them in parallel so the amps see two ohms (wiring in series will show four ohms). Doing this effectively "doubles" the power of the amps. If the amps are not two-ohm stable, they'll fail. Parallel wiring means putting the positive wire of sub 1 to the positive terminal of channel 1 on the amp, and the negative wire of sub 1 on the negative terminal of channel 2. Do the opposite for the second sub. This will give you a LOT of bass response as long as your sub enclosures are properly sized for the speakers.
