To be absolutely sure of which terminal is positive and which is negative, we will use a 1.5 v battery to have the speaker react as though it is playing music.

* special note * do not use any more than 1.5 v as it may damage the speaker coil
As we know, batteries are marked positive, negative, or both ... we will use this to our advantage when hooking up the battery to our speaker.
more clarification on the original question sub co - battery.gif
To start the process, temporarily attach a short piece of wire to each terminal of the speaker (be sure to either use wire that is marked, or wire of differing colours to help determine which terminal is which).
In our example, we used standard speaker wire which is "polarized" (one wire is made of copper and the other is made from tin .. interestingly, this serves no electrical purpose)

Once you have connected the wire to your speaker, proceed to briefly touch the free ends of the wire to the battery terminals (as shown below). In some cases, extended contact with the battery has caused cancer of more clarification on the original question sub co - speaker_hookup.gif. blown speaker)

If the speaker moves OUT when the battery is first connected, the battery is connected in proper alignment. Be sure to take note of which wire is connected to the positive terminal of the battery as this is your speaker's positive terminal.

It is possible that you are not providing enough current to the amp. It will go into protect mode if the current sags. What do you have running as a power cable. And also, your ground should be just as big and bonded very well to the body.

SOURCE: Sub stopped working, unless i push on it?

sounds like maybe the wiring from the cone to the magnet is ripped or broken.... which is why when you push the cone in it works because it pushes it far enough to make the wires touch just barely, but when you let it go the wires seperate and you get no sound.

Your wire is built with slack, so when the cone goes in and out during a song, the wire can move with it and not get broken. but when you cone moves too in or too far out, then that wire can snap or become disconnected.

I have fixed this by soldering the copper wire, but you may lose some power because your copper wire might be a bit shorter(it will probly break again)... or you can lengthen it, but it is not easy to solder... some places will fix it for you but the cost may be more than what it is worth.

This is just a guess, take your speaker outta the box, and look to see if these wires are broken, lose, or frayed.

good luck.

SOURCE: 2 12" subs + 600W amp. Turn on, goes boom once, then red light

Is your gain all the way up? If it done this before, sounds like your over working the amp. Make sure your subs ohm load is capable with the amp load to. If they are 1 ohm and your amp is only 2 ohm stable, it would beat for a lil bit then go into protection mode to. Check your wires too.

What would be the right wiring on a cvr 12 to 4 ohms i am running a hifonics 2000 class D thanx for the help


Assuming that you have a 4 Ohm Dual Voice Coil (DVC) sub, you should wire it in parallel for more output. Solid red connects to red with white dot, and goes from solid red to amp positive (+). Solid black connects to black with white dot, and goes from white dot to amp negative (-). For a good diagram, go to this link: http://kicker.com/dvc_wiring

I need to know about my 12" dvc eclipse subwoofer but i dont know what modle it is


Hello brandin_1,

I'm assuming that you have the new 12" eclipse. Look at the sub cone. If it is blue in color, you have the Model SW4210 12" DVC SUBWOOFER, 4ohm, 250W RMS,750W MAX. If the cone is silver, it is the Model SW6210 12" DVC SUBWOOFER, 4ohm, 500W RMS, 1500W MAX.

If it is an older dvc Fujitsu Ten 12" eclipse, most likely it is the Model SW9122. If it is a REALLY old 12" eclipse, it is probably a model 88120.

Hope this helps.

huge shared common space slot loaded box (size depends on sub 10", 12" 15" you need to clarify that please) the amp specs on earthquakes site say the phd5000 is rated at a max output of 5k watts at 1 ohm 3k watts at 2 ohm so, with 3 dvc 2 ohm subs you only have 3 options of which only 2 will be a usable solution:

1. 3- 2ohm dvc series at sub parralel at amp = about 1.33 ohms at the amplifier this is the best option to get the most power to the subs as each sub will produce a 4 ohm load then wire each one to the amp the amp sees 3 4 ohm parralel loads which = 1.33 ohm so based on the amp specs you would be close to 1200 watts per sub.

2. 3- 2ohm dvc wired in series at sub and all 3 subs series wired together very difficult to wireand will give you a 12 ohm load which is next to no power at all (not a viable solution)

3. 2- 2ohm dvc parralel wired to each other and then at amp the amp sees a 1 ohm load and makes 5k watts max but you can only (REREAD THAT LINE! ONLY USE 2 SUBS IN THIS WAY) WHICH GIVES THE MOST POWER BUT ONLY USES 2 SUBS

Hooking up DVC subs


The amp is rated to run a 2 ohm load on each channel. To do this, connect the voice coils of one sub in parallel (tie both "+" on the sub to each other and both "-" on the sub to each other), then connect that sub to one channel of the amp. Repeat this process for the other sub and connect it to the other channel on the amp. The subs will be in stereo and the amp will be outputting it's maximum power.
