That's a 4-channel amp, not a 2-channel, which makes me wonder exactly how you have it hooked up to your sub. Is the LED light on the amp coming on? How many subs do you have hooked up to it, and how is it wired?

Is there a way to put a 300 wat pioneer amp and a 10 inch pioneer sub into my 09 honda civic without replaceing the dash panel?


It is possible to do. You will need a kill switch for the power wire running from your battery to the amp. Also, you will need a high level to low level converter for the audio in signal to the amp. This taps into existing speaker wires and converts it into rca signals to connect to your amp. Its alot more work than taking apart the dash in my opinion.

Hello. I have one (1) XS-L1035 being powered by a JBL gts 180X 2/1 channel amp. The sub works fine if i power two(2) subs thru 2 channels BUT if I try to bridge the power to one sub the amp cuts out. Is it...


It sounds like the problem is with the amp. try using the other sub in bridged mode and see if it still turns it off. If it still turns off then its definitely the amp. In 2 channel mode you are using each channel at 4 ohms right? and in bridged mode to 1 speaker it should be throwing a ton of power on a 4 ohm load as well,it should work fine bro -its gotta be the amp

PIONEER 300 WATT CAR STEREO AMP WIREING HOW TOO


depending on how many channels the amp is, you may not be able to hook everything up to it.

usually you have a separate amp for subs. 4 channel amp for the speakers in the car, and a mono amp for the subs.

To hook them all up to the same amp you would need an amp with 5 channels. It wouldn't work out right.

If you have a mono amp its only for subs.

If you have a 2 channel you can either hook it up to the rear speakers or bridge them to mono to run the subs.


you need a channel per speaker basically.

Hi i have two 10'' jenson xs sub and they are about 6 years old and i was wondering wut amp size i should buy to run them.


I believe these are 4ohms, if so buy a 2ohm stable monoblock amp, that puts out 250-300 watts RMS, and connect your subs to it in parallel, don't pay attention to peak watts, look at RMS watts, or continuous watts. If they're 2 ohms, buy a 2 ohm stable 2 channel amp that puts out 125-150 watts RMS per channel, and 250-300 watts total or bridged RMS output. And connect them normally, on sub per channel... hope this helps, as far as brand recommendations, MTX, pioneer, Alpine, Kenwood... Good luck

Amp or something cutting out.


Power caps store power from the battery and they feed constant power to the amp so you dont get no drainage! this could be one reason..

have you bridged both subs and wat gauge wire are you using.

these amps can only handle one bridged sub at 4ohms and this amp is recommended that u use 8gauge or higher. if your running to subs i normally reccomend using 4 gauge power wire as you get more rms power feed to the amp

you can get a power cap or anyother accersory cheap online at my suppliers.. caraudiosecurity << click to enter >> hope this helps and please rate me :)

Usually an 800 watt peak sub would be a 400 watt rms. Hmmmm. Anyway, just bridge the amp (1x 380) nd keep the gain up enough to stay clean. Watch the sub and turn up gain until it starts to distort, then back it down a hair. Do this with the CD players volume up 2/3 to 3/4 volume with the BASS and treble at zero (bass better at minus 4 or so if you are a bass head! Hope thishelps.

Pioneer deck kicker sub 2 mossfit amps


scanman84: i would recommend using the 2 channel 300W amp to drive the dual voice coil alone. i wouldn't combine the single channel amp with the 2 channel. you can't tie the 2 channel outputs together & use that on 1 voice & attach the single channel amp to the other, plus there could be slight differences in amplification & timing which, could cause the sub to have minimal movement or cause a canceling effect which would reduce the spl, sound pressure level. if you need more volume use the lowest impedence speaker recommended by the amp's mfg & if you need serious volume, go with a higher output single 2 channel amp. just make sure you have sufficient wire size to handle high powered amps. example, 8awg wire is rated for 73 amps. also make sure the amp is well grounded with nut & bolt connections to the frame & that there is good ventilation.

peace-out

The specs I read on the Pioneer site say the amp is not 1 ohm stable, so keep that in mind.

It partially depends on the impedance of each voice coil on the DVC subs. If they are dual 4 ohm, and you connect the DVCs in parallel ("+"s together, "-"s together), you could run a sub on each channel of the amp(s). This would put about 200W on each sub.

The other option is to still tie the dual 4 ohm voice coils in parallel, tie 2 subs in series (one "+" to the other "-"), and bridge the two channels of the amp (aka put them in parallel). But this, also, would be about 200W on each sub.

Things get different if the subs have dual 2 ohm, 3 ohm, or 8 ohm voice coils.
