Question about Lanzar Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I need to wire 2 12" DVC Lanzar MAXP124D to an 8 ohm load. Had it wired at a 2 ohm setting and it would over heat my amp. So tried to wire it to 8 and it wouldn't work. Need help.Thanks.

Your 8ohm channel is fried why happened was you ran 2 12s in an 8ohm load and turned it down to 2ohms the speakers was pulling all the power and that made it over heat and when it over heated it fried you're amp. It ain't no good you can't fix that

SOURCE: L7 wiring options

yes it should work fine i would bridge them up to 4 ohms each speaker then bridge them back bye conectin them on the amp by puting the red with the red and puting the black with the black if the amp only has 1 chanel then put both speakers red on the same positive on the amp and same with the negative now to bring the ohms up to 4 ohms conect the solid red to the black with dot with a short wire ok then the ones that are not run together will go to the amp giving offf 4 ohms and with the 2 speakers bridged together thay will reduce to 2 ohms witch means that eatch speaker will get about 600 wats of rms from the amp

In short yes. And is very common even has its own term called bridged. Taking two channels and making them one. I would hope that you are running a cap. that's going to put out a lot of power and stress on your battery

SOURCE: need to wire two dvc 15 in kicer l7 to 1 ohm

Hello goldy6569,

To wire the L72's at 1ohm, simply connect both +'s and -"s on each sub together. Then connect to your amp terminals.

With 2ohm DVC's, you can have either a 1ohm load or a 4ohm load. The diagrams are here (I know it's the website of a Kicker competitor, but their "wiring wizard" is simply the best).

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Want to bridge 2 channel amp to push single 4 ohm dvc sub

Hello k_rabbit89,

A 4 ohm DVC sub can be wired in series like you described for an 8 ohm load or the voice coils can be wired in parallel for a 2 ohm load.

If your 2-channel amp isn't stable down to 2 ohms when the channels are bridged (most 2-channel amps are only stable to 4 ohms when bridged), you do not want the voice coils paralleled. The amp will overheat, go into protection mode, and eventually fail completely. A sub with 2 ohm voice coils would be a better fit. That way, you could series the coils for a 4 ohm load and the amp would operate OK with the channels bridged into that load.

But anyway, for the best power from THAT amp to THAT sub, your best wiring solution would be to wire each voice coil to a separate channel. The problem with that is that the signal to each coil needs to be EXACTLY the same or you will have one coil trying to move the cone out while the other one tries to move it in. You can closely approximate identical signals on the output side by using the same input to both channels. Do this by using only one RCA connection (either right or left channel) from your head unit and split it with a "Y" cable.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: i want to know the best subwoofer wiring diagram

if the amp has a 2 outputs then i would wire the two 4ohms together, and the 2ohm by itself. and if its a 4 channel output then wire them all sepretly, if its a 1 channel output then wire the two 4ohms together and leave the 2ohm sub out

How do I wire a lanzar vw10d


Subwoofer had dual 4 ohm coils.

3 solutions:

Parallel: (recommended) Wire each + and - together, then to the amp will give a 2 ohm load.

Independent: Wire each + and - to an independent channel on a 2 channel amplifier, this will be a 4 ohm load on each channel.

Series (not recommended): Wire + from one side of the woofer to - of the other side of woofer. Wire the other + and - to the amplifier to give an 8 ohm load

I have no idea what to do with my panzer maxp124d subwoofer. There's like 8 terminals on each sub and idk how to wire them


Here are the specs for your speaker.
  • Dual 4 Ohms Nom. Impedance
  • Fs: 40Hz, Qms:5.0, Qes: 0.90, Qts: 0.75, SPL: 84(dB), Vas: 5.204(Cuft)
  • That should help you design a good box.

  • The eight terminals are actually 4 with double slide ons for each. Each side has a + (positive)
    and a - (negative) with 2 connectors at each connection point.
    It is a dual voice coil thus 2 sets of inputs.
    If you have a 4 ohm amplifier then you are ready to go with a left to one side's terminal and a right amp output going to the other. If you have 2 speakers this can get wild because you can run them in parallel
    or series and reduce the impedance to 2 ohms if your amp is 2 ohm stable. If not-dont do it!
    You will burn the amp up. See #58 on the right sidebar of this site. It will teach you how to get the most
    from your setup. Bookmark the site. It has every kind of knowledge you need for audio or electricity.
    Look for the DVC (dual voice coil) info.
    "The image below shows the DVC speaker wired to both channels of a stereo amplifier. Each channel of the amplifier drives a 4 ohm load. " This looks like what you have to do.

    I have a lanzar max pro 15'' subwoofer and i need to know how to wire it. It has four wire inputs on each side teo positive and two negative, is this just to change it from 4 to 8 ohm or something?


    In part yes it is a flexibility for wiring your speakers to match the impedance of your amp. For example if your subs are 2 ohm dvc by wiring them in parallel you can drop the impedance down to 1 ohm per speaker and if you connect two 1 ohm then you get 1/2 an ohm load. Or you can put them in series and increase the impedance to 8 ohms which I wouldn't suggest you do. Here is a link to wiring speakers:

    I am getting distortion at all levles of volume from 4 different lanzar maxp124d subwoofers. no matter how i wire them or what style box i've tried i get the same results.


    Its your amp. It may be pickin up noise from your car electrical system. Make sure your amp power wire doesn't run along side your RCAs back to the amp. Or you could be pickin up alternator wine, its a problem with the way your wires are run, unless your amp's just producing a bad signal, try turning your amp input gain a little lower, to muck juice into the amp can fuzzy up signals. If you can't find any thing wrong take your amp to an audio shop and they can test it to see if its distorting always, or just cuz of your wiring... Hop this helps you out.

    How do you wire up a dual voice coil lanzar 15 for 4 ohm?


    Hello dexterchapma,

    The only way to wire a single 4ohm DVC sub to present a 4ohm load is to just connect one voice coil. If you wire the coils in parallel, you get a 2ohm load. If you wire them in series, you get an 8ohm load. But it will work great with just one voice coil. Or if you really want to use both voice coils, and your amp isn't stable at 2ohms, wire the voice coils in series and present an 8ohm load to the amp. It'll work fine, it just won't deliver quite as much power.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi JJerky,

    I suggest we go for 2 ohm to preserve the amp and not heat things up so bad.
    Your Subs are Dual Voice Coil(DVC) and 2 ohms each coil. I am going to tell you the wiring to insure you get balanced response from both Subs. We will wire the Subs Voice coils in Parallel to make them 1 ohm each. Then we will wire the Amp to the subs in series to make the total load on the amp 2 ohms. When you have series to both subs each sub gets the same current.


    Example of my coding :SUB1VC1+ = Subwoofer 1 Voice Coil 1 Postive terminal.

    SUB1VC1+ to SUB1VC2+
    SUB1VC1 - to SUB1VC2-

    SUB2VC1 + to SUB2VC2 +
    SUB2VC1 - to SUB2VC2 -

    AMP + to SUB1VC1 +
    SUB1VC1 - to SUB2VC1 +
    SUB2VC1 - to AMP -

    This should give you a good repsonse.

    Adjust your Bass Gain down very low at first. Also cut you LPF to about 60 hz. Crank up the volume on a bass test Audio track, Adjust the Bass Gain up unitl you get distortion. The turn it back a little. This is proper setting for your Gain.
