You will bridge the amp, and if the subs are all 8 ohm subs, you can probably wire them all in parallel, if they are all 4 ohm subs, you would wire then in series.

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

I need help hooking my kicker cvr 12 to my direct 600 amp


Is the sub a single voice coil or dual???? If its a single, just bridge sub to amp....(+ of one channel and the - of the other) amp should show where to bridge with a diagram near speaker outs. If its a dual voice coil, then run one voice coil to the left channel and one voice coil to the right.

What is Positive and what is Negative


Hi Mason.
Are the positions colour coded in any way?
Red = Positive
Black = Negative
I've looked at some photo's from the website and at a guess I would say that yours are the push on crimp types, so no colour markings.
Have a look at the pdf wiring diagram they supply here as it may shed some light on things:
MTX Thunder US-XT12-44
I've looked over loads of forums but none seem to mention the wiring of these subs.
Understandably you want to get this right as they are a very nice set of subs when they're up and running.
If all else fails try looking at the MTX contact list and ringing one of their supported dealers for more info.
Regards
Mike

How do i wire up my mtx 15 5500 sub woofer dual voice coil any one know i have tried several ways


there are several ways, it all depends on the bass response you want, and with that, it also changes the ohms in the amp. i'm going to give you seval ways to hook them up. if you are running more than one just follow these steps per sub. the first one is if your sub is dual 2 ohm. Wiring Option #2

1_2ohmdvc_1ohm.gif Wiring Option #2
this is for dual 4 ohm coils

2 MTX Thunder Problem.. Bridging?


Is there a option on the chanels that say ''Bridged''? If so, you can hook the subs up in parellel or series to get different ohm loads. Usually the lower ohms, the more power amp puts out. Those subs can handle 225 watts RMS whitch means the power it can handle constantly. If the amp gives more than 225 watts RMs, you could be at risk of blowing the sub. If you could give me the model # of the amp, I can be of more help.

How do i wire mtx 9500 subs 2 10'' down to a one ohm


THE T9510-04 SUBS ARE SINGLE COIL SUBS AND YOU CAN VIEW THAT WIRING DIAGRAM AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:
http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/subwoofers/TechData_T9510-04.pdf

THE T9510-44 SUBS ARE DUAL VOICE-COIL SUBS AND YOU CAN VIEW THAT WIRING DIAGRAM AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:
http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/subwoofers/TechData_T9510-44.pdf

SINCE YOU NEED A 1 OHM LOAD, I PRESUME BRIDGED AND ARE USING TWO SUBS, THEN HOPEFULLY YOU HAVE THE DUAL VOICE COIL TYPE, AS THEY ARE DUAL 4 OHM AND YOU WILL HAVE TO CONNECT THE VOICE-COILS IN PARALLEL WHICH WILL MAKE EACH SPEAKER A 2 OHM SPEAKER AND THEN CONNECT THE TWO SPEAKERS THEMSELVES IN PARALLEL AND THIS WILL PROVIDE YOU THE 1 OHM LOAD. IF YOU IN FACT HAVE THE SINGLE 4 OHM VOICE COIL VERSION, THEN IT WILL ONLY PARALLEL THE PAIR DOWN TO 2 OHMS. OK. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

WIRING A DUAL VOICE COIL SUB.


Just wire one voice coil each into left and right rear respectively, in series with the original rears or if this is too quiet, wire both voice coils in parallel together and connect as per original single coil unit.

As they are 4ohms each they can simply be connected as simple speakers on each rear channel output, since thats exactly what they are, capacitors are used inside to make them react to bass frequencies only. Wiring them up is no different to wiring up a pair of 6x9's.

When I bridge the BAMF 2200/2 Power Acoustik amp it cuts off


Hello munchisfun,

I'd suspect that the amp is operating into too low of an impedance and going into protection.

The 2200/2 is not rated to drive a 2ohm load when bridged (most 2-channel amps aren't) and when you connect 2 4ohm subs in parallel, the load is 2ohms. I'd run one sub from each channel.

Hope this helps.

Subs


I looked up that amp, it doesn't have a listing for 2ohms x1 but it has 2 ohms x 2 and its at 250watts. For this situation, I would recommend a different amp or different subs. Right now you are getting the most you can get out of your sub/amp combo, if you only have single voice coil subs. Which is common in the mtx preloaded boxes. Either you want an mono block amp stable at 2 ohms or 2 dual 4 ohm voice coil subs. If you got the subs you would wire the voice coils in series so you could get 8 ohms then the subs in parallel so you could get 4 ohms, which would be the best for that particular amp. Good luck.

directed 1100 d turns on but no sound ok ive got a directed 1100d amp when i turn my system on the amp powers up then clicks stays on but doesn't put out anything if you leave it on for a while it will start to reverberate through the sub like its trying to play but never goes any further can anyone give me an idea what is wrong or an idea how to fix it? I have a Directed 1100d i was using it to power 4 12" woofers in my home ht setup, ive used other amps with good results. it worked fine but did have a slight hum from the woofers so i turned the gain down it seemed to help. So i used it for a few hors and then heard a light thump from my woofers when i went to check it out the 1100 was in protect mode and was really hot. I decided nto disconect it and leave it cool down, the next day i tried it with a single 10" sub it was no longer in protect mode light was geen but all i got out of it was hum from the woofer but no music. The ht woofers are rated at about 4 ohms a pair I also opened it up and there was no signs of any blowen or discolored components. I then proceeded to check the output transistors with a digital meter they seem ok, the amp also has 4 what they call fast response diodes with 3 leggs the 2 outside leggs short out but im not sure if they are suppose to or not.the numbers on the diodes which actually look like transistors are 2ea YG225N2 and YG225C2 ive surched the web but havent come up with a way to properly test them any help would be great thanks.
