Have you installed Kicker capacitors? With the extra power you have you will need them to help with the load.

that subwoofer has dual 4ohm voice coils, if your amp can handle 2 ohms, you would put a wire from the positive (+) on the amp to the positive on both connectors on the sub, then hook the negative (-) on the amp to the negative on both the sub connectors that will be a 2 ohm load on your amp make sure your amp at 2 ohms is not more than 600 watts RMS or 1200 max.

Make sure that you have the subs wired in a 4-ohm series and not a 8-ohm load

A kicker amp with full range out put that has a switch for the range you most like. do not go over 400 watts rms or the tweeters will blow.

How i wire my sub to my jbl gto301-1iiamp with 2 Hifonics HFi12D4

If the amp is 1200 watts at 2 ohm stable you will want to set up the speakers as parrallel and bridge the amp. That means conncect the speakers with + to + and - to -. Look at the amp connections. Usually thereare connects that look like this:
+ -
+ - + -

If yours look like this use the diagram on top. You will use the + for the left ouput on the amp to the right - on the amp. This will allow you to use all the power from the amp. Be sure to lower the gain as to not pop the speakers or amp.

Specs for Ported Box for 2 12" MA AUDIO HK12X2 Subs

Hello joseph_delac,

MA Audio's website has the recommended box volume and port size online here. A ported enclosure needs 3.0 CuFt of internal volume and the port should be 48 sq/in and 14.5" in length. A 4X12" rectangular port would give you the recommended 48 sq/in. Using 3/4" MDF, a box 16X18X25 has an internal volume of 3.25 CuFt allowing .25 CuFt for the sub and port displacement.

Hope this helps.

Have one wire for audio sub out, but two input ports to amp

This one Wire should be for the +. Try connecting the + to the Head Unit and - to a Common Ground. At the Worst, You will Blow the Amp Fuse if not Correct. The Lead from the Head Unit is Only an Off and On from the Ignition. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Amplifiers

It sounds like you've got too little impedance on it. How are the speakers wired? Are they in series (one speaker per channel) or are they in parallel (speaker 1 neg wire hooked up to channel 2, and speaker 2 neg wire hooked up to channel 1)? Or do you have a single speaker bridged (pos wire on one channel, neg wire on the other)? Often, an amp going into protection is a result of too much current draw, which happens when you're running a 2-ohm load on an amp that isn't rated to handle that (many are only OK at 4-ohms, which you'd have with series wiring). Let me know how you have the speakers wired and we'll go from there.
