Watkins woofers are not a normal dual voice coil woofer. They are designed to be used with a special crossover that when one coil starts rolling off due to rising impedance the other takes over to extend the bass frequencies lower. What is the difference between 12

Yes, wire the Voice coils in series. This will give you at least 4 ohms.

SOURCE: speaker wiring

hi mat
you should have four terminals two plain and two with dots
to get the best power cut two inches off good speker wire
tear apart now place one wire from
plan black to red with white dot then
plain red to black with white dot
this is how set then up with my directed 1100d mono amp .. very loud at half gain
well hope this helps.............. ..benjaminsarmy..

SOURCE: how can i check if one voice coil is burned out on

hi there, looking from the back with the S the right way round, put a meter across the two terminals on the left + and - to check the first coil, then same on the right, if it shows o/c then youll know which one if duff!
hope this helps

SOURCE: i cannot find a diagram

I will assume that you mean four posts total and not four on each side. It's a dual voice coil and you will need a jumper. Take a small strip of speaker wire and connect the positve and negative of one coil together. Take a close look, there is a dot on one positive and a dot on one negative. Jump these two together. Now wire the other positive and negative to the amp's positive and negative.

I need to wire 3 woofers but 2 are dual voice coil and one is single voice coil


sure, if you wish to wire them all together, wire the first dual voice coil subs first voice coil negative to 2nd voice coil positive, second voice coil negative to single voice coil sub positive, and single voice coil negative to 2nd dual voice coil subs 1st voice coil positve (again with the second dual voice coil sub, run the first voice coil negative to the 2nd voice coil positve) your speaker leads will be attatched to first dual voice coils 1st voice coil positive, and 2nd dual voice coils 2nd voice coil negative)

Can i power 2 12 subs a rockford punch z and a xplode with this amp i found all this **** in my garage and i need to know if it will power all this


First of all. Using two different kinds of sub woofers, is not an option, as these two sub woofers have different specifications and you should never mix sub woofers. Now the better choice from the 2, would probably be the Rockford. (cant be sure without knowing the models, power handling is also a factor in how well either of the sub woofers will play, but Rockford as a rule makes better sub woofers than Sony does) In my opinion, both the sub woofers deserve a better amplifier than what Boss has to offer. However to connect either of these sub woofers, you would need to determine how many voice coils it has and how many OHM the voice coil/s are. If it is a DVC (dual voice coil) and each voice coil is 4 OHM or 2 OHM, then you can connect one voice coil to one channel of the amplifier and the other voice coil to the other channel of the amplifier. If it is a DVC 2OHM you can also connect it wired in Series/Series to give a 4OHM load and should be connected to the BRIDGE dedicated speaker outputs of your amplifier. If it is a SVC (single voice coil) and it is 4 OHM, then you can connect the sub woofer to the designated speaker outputs of your amplifier that states BRIDGE. DO NOT run the amplifier in BRIDGE mode at 2 OHM as this will probably damage the amplifier. dreamsystems

I have 2 positives and 2 negatives on back of my alphasonik sub, do i connect amp to one side or both sides?


Hello gaz69,

Your PSW815 has 2 ohm dual voice coils allowing you to better match the impedance to your amp. Each voice coil is 2 ohms. If you wire them in parallel (both +'s together and both -'s together and then to the amp terminals), the sub presents a 1 ohm load which is too low for most amps. Wiring the voice coils in series (one + to the other - and the remaining + and - to the amp terminals) results in a 4 ohm load.

This link shows the wiring diagram for both options. If you know for sure that your amp is 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #1. If the amp is not 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #2.

Hope this helps.

Ok, I have a pair of infinity dual voice coil 12" subs, and a pair of audiobahn quad voice coil 12" subs. Boths sets of speakers can handle 450w. Which set of 12's would be best to hook up to this amp, and...


i recomend you just use the best single woofer in a well built box and that will give you better sound at lower gain volumes it sounds like you have too much junk laying around but to get good bass run your sub at 2 ohms if the amp is stable at that impedence

Infinity 1600a cuts out wit real low bass when turned up load



With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts on either terminal when you drive the amp hard, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is dropping too low.

Alpine mrd m500 amp is not pushing my 12 in infinity sub


If you have a dual voice coil sub, make sure that you have the positive and negative terminals connected properly. If you have ONE of the coils wired backwards, it will cause the speaker to produce little or no sound.

Have you set the gains properly?

Are you sure the amplifier is receiving a strong signal from the head unit?

Have you tried it with a different speaker?
