Question about Lanzar Car Audio & Video
Posted by Anonymous on
Buy another sub or a different amp, do you're research BEFORE you buy mismatched stuff! I don't know why so many people here are asking these same questions constantly? Why would anyone but stuff that obviously not made to work with what they already have? Planning is no 1 fir car audio, first you plan it out then you figure out what size power cable is needed to power the amps. Run the 4 or 2 gauge wires to where the amp will mount then go from there. Smartest thing to do here is just buy another sub or a new amp that's made to run a 1ohm, 2 ohm or 4 ohm single output for each coil rating, series, parallel or combination of both to get you to where you need to be. I myself just run single 4 ohm coils and run 4 x 12" subs to get a 1 ohm load on a mono amp, it's simple and goes louder than it needs to be. Also running a 2 gauge wire even if it's overkill, that way if I go with a bigger amp I'm ready. Plan, plan, then plan out your installation, it 90% if his it will sound. Same pieces installed correctly will sound 100x better than just tossing it all on the floor and starving the amp for voltage and amperage will result in blown subs and burnt amps! I've seen it hundreds of times, I've told people over and over why they keep burning up their stuff and they don't listen! Good luck!

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

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

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.

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.

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
