Install lager wire, you need over 280 amps to get 4000 watts.

SOURCE: bridge subwoofers

Without looking up the individual specs of your speaker and amp, I'll offer a few basics when it comes to bridging an amp.
Most important...find out what impedance (ohm) that your amp can handle bridged!! If you go below this rating, you will run the risk and most likely eventually overheat and short circuit the amp. You must also know the impedance of your sub (which can come in a variety) to be able to match them. Depending on this impedance match-up, it may be less beneficial to bridge the speaker to this amp. For example if there is an impedance mismatch you'll either get less power from the amp or short circuit the amp. If you know these I can help you come up with the best solution.
If you know bridging is the best option, then you'll have to know which terminals on the amp to use in order to bridge. This is how it normally works. On a 2 channel amp...you would normally take the positive from one channel to the positive on the speaker, and the negative from the OTHER channel to the negative on the speaker...and this is how you bridge the amp. The other two channels would remain UNCONNECTED. BUT!!! you have to make sure you use the correct 2 channels...it varies from manufacturer. But take heed not overload the amp...and not to overpower the sub. There are a few different ways that you can configure the subs if you find it beneficial to bridge your amp, these would take long to explain and would depend on the impedance of your subs and specs of your amp...these wiring configurations is how you match the impedance of the speakers input to the amps output (and is very important to do correctly) Look up "parallel and series" wiring configurations. Let me know if this helps, or if you need further help. Find out the impedance of your subs and the specs of your amp and i'll be able to assist you more. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to wire my kicker solar baric

All depends on your amp. Is it 1 ohm stable or not?
Parralell:
positive (pos) on voice coil 1 (vc1) to Pos on vc2 and negative (neg) on vc1 to neg on vc2. Then speaker wire from amp to one vc only = 1ohm load.
Series:
Pos from amp to Pos on vc1. Neg of vc1 to Pos of vc2. Neg of vc2 to amp = 4 ohm load.

SOURCE: how do you wire four 12 inch kicker cvr dual voice

Hello brysonford00,

The wiring configuration depends on what final impedance you want the amp to see. If the subs are 4ohm DVC's, you can wire them to present a 2ohm impedance or an 8ohm impedance. The diagrams are here. If your subs are 2ohm DVC's, the wiring is the same. The impedances will be 1ohm and 4ohms.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Planet Audio Big Bang 3000 Watt 1 ohm

that should be fine, but with that much power you might want to invest in earplugs, the SPL or sound pressure level from those speakers could rip your ear drums out of your head, kick them around for awhile, spit on them and shove them back in through your nose.
**Disclaimer, I am not a medical doctor and do not claim to be, I am simply warning you about hearing loss as I have suffered from between 30 - 50% hearing loss because of loud bass. but seriously, if the speakers sound like """" turn it down a little bit. that system should work fine though.

You need to get a "Crossover network" first and wire that to the Amp, and wire speakers to that.

Would a Kicker DX250.1 250W 2-Ohm Mono Class D amp work well with a kicker dual 12" c12 subwoofer with 600watt peak?

you really want something closer to 600 watts. if you arent careful, you can overdrive the amp, since the speaker isnt seeming to mind the volume, and the resulting audio distortion can damage the speaker

Audio speakers

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

Why this planet audio protection light always comes on when i turn up the car audio

The amp in question is a very entry level amp. Meaning it needs to be ran at moderate ohm load. And have plenty of power to feed it. Check your grounds. Pos. Etc.

I have a 08 L7 15 hooked up to a 3500W monoblock class D SPL amp, its been working fine for several months until today now the voice coil is fried, what can i do? I also never set the gain more than half...

if it was not a new sub it could had bin used hard and all it needed was one good hit to blow. and if it was new it could had bin a refurbished they tend to blow quick and thats amp is too much of that sub thats good just keep the gain like u have it what ill do go Memphis that is a good 15"

SHOULD I GO AHEAD AND BUY A 400 WATT AMP?

All amps aren't created equal. More exspense amps put out "cleaner" power. You need to know what the RMS power rating is for the amp at 8 ohms and 4 ohms. Also, is the speaker an 8 or 4 ohm speaker? How you wire a speaker or speakers (series or paralell) can change the ohms (resistence) which will change the power put out of the amp. Also, I'm assuming you are setting it up in mono?

Bridging to 12 inch kicker competition subs to my 1000 watt alpine 4 channel amp

I'm a bit confused. For Alpine amps, the "M" prefix is for monoblock (aka single channel) amps and the "F" prefix is for multichannel amps. The only M550 I find is an MRD-M550, which is a monoblock, not a 4 channel like you say.
Unfortunately, I can't give you accurate help until we know weather it's truly 1 channel or 4 channel. Then I'll be glad to help!
