SOURCE: orion xtr15 to a american leagacy la 660 amp

your only choice is to run the amplifier at a 4 ohm mono load - this will not reult in the amplifier making much power.
Positive on sub to Positive on amp.
Negative on sub to Negative on amp.
This is your only possibility.

Adding a second sub in the same fashion will result in a 2 ohm load, and your amplifier will run at its rated potential.

SOURCE: zx-8400 amp too much for zx-4812?

The amp and sub combo should work fine the subs can really take a crapload of power-i have a neighbor thats running 1200 watts rms to each sub in his caddy and OMG- its sick. Your amp should be pushing around 800 watts rms(continous) to the sub which should do very well-my concern with your setup is that the sub is designed for a vented box- you can use any box u want but im just suggesting that you use a good solid vented box with these subs- my other concern with your setup is that having only the single sub if its a dual coil 4ohm + 4ohm coils then you might run into trouble if you dont have it set up right-by that meaning to get all the power handling capability of the sub you would want to use both of the coils right? well to do that you have to either wire the coils in series or wire the coils in parallel right? In series the coils will yield an 8 ohm load to the amp and youll only get about 400 watts from the amp bridged into that 8 ohm load- on the other side of that if you wire the coils in parallel then the cols yield a 2 ohm load and that could cause the amplifier to become unstable and fry its little guts. All of this is assuming that the amp is made to run bridged at 4 ohms- if it is 2 ohm stable in bridged mode than you have nothing to worry about. Now the popping noise- that sounds like its coming from the amp somehow and just feeding through to the sub-like you ive never heard a sub popping unless its bottoming out and you say its not so its gotta be the amp id say-if it were me id check all power connections especially the ground for the amp . It could be that on the heavy bass notes that your amp is not getting enough juice -throw a 3.5 farad capacitor on the power line and see if that helps your system out-

SOURCE: power in amp but no sound to speakers

you need to make sure youre getting a signal from the source, RCA's I suppose. Check for loose connections or broken wires. make sure to have 12v+ on power and remote inputs at amp...proper ground too. Lastly, check your ohm loads at speakers, maybe one is about dead. make sure crossover settings are correct.
good luck!

SOURCE: i have a 900 watt amp and 2 12" fusion subs.will this sound good?

Yes. It should sound good.
Try in the trunk, facing the back of the seats.
A simple Infinite Baffle/Free Air setup, should work fine.

What speakers I can wire to my amp? a volfenhag zx-8200 1000 watt amp. Currently 800 watt bose sub bridged to it, capacitor as well. and a 150amp circuit breaker. I have a 14 volt 105 amp alternator.


1. It depends on how many and what type of speakers you run.

It is a 'bridgeable' amp and therefore has a variable number of configurations.

You can run that Bose sub on one channel and twin up. It's not a great idea to have the drivers max near or lower than the output of the amp and puts out serious thump from a 30W cone.

IS ORION HCCAD5000 AMP ENOUGH FOR 2 ORION HCCA10.2!


No. These subs are rated at 1500 RMS each. So you need an amp that will produce at least 3000 watts RMS at 2 ohm load or if you wire each sub to a separate amp down to 1 ohm...then you will need an amp that will produce at least 1500 RMS. Those subs can handle more than they are rated though.

I have a behringer 1500 watts amp that is clipping


What is happening is that your amp can deliver 1500 Watts at a given impedance. The Sub PROBABLY is a higher impedance. Your amp runs out of voltage due to the speaker impedance, hence it "flat tops" or clips.

You will probably find the sub is 8 ohms and your amp might deliver 1500 Watts on a 2 ohm system (this is "specsmanship" to sell their product... more is better thing...

If your amp was as above, the max voltage output would be the same before clipping but with the resistance 4 times, the current is only one fourth that which would deliver 1500 Watts. So you would only get 1500/4 Watts into the speaker or about 375 Watts.

I have two volfenhag 1000 watts speakers


If you are looking for some serious sound try using a Rockford Fosgate P3001T Amplifier.. it pushes 3000W Max its a 4 channel amplifier. Or you could go with something small. I have two JL Audio 10s in my car running with a 600W 2 Channel MTX Amp.

Need an amp to go with speakers


you could get a 1100 watt amp, but, it is ALWAYS good to get a smaller amp than the max rating so you have a "safe" zone and turn it up all the way so you don't have to worry about always running it at its peak( which sounds better but more chance of blowing it)
