How do you wire a AW1000V to 1 amplifier?


The easiest way to wire this would be to make sure you have a 2 ohm amp, wire both voice coils in parallel to the amp. This means to connect both + terminals on the speaker to the + speaker output on the amp, then wire both - terminals on the speaker to the - speaker terminal on the amp. With the voice coils in parallel like this it makes it into a 2 ohm load at the amplifier. If you are running for example a 1000 watt amp at 2 ohms into this speaker it would give each voice coil the equivalent of 500 watts of power at 4 ohms. The other way would be to run the voice coils in series (voice coil 1 - terminal to - speaker terminal on the amp, voice coil 1 + terminal to the voice coil 2- terminal, voice coil 2 + terminal to the +speaker terminal on the amp.) The series wiring would give you a 8ohm speaker load to your amp so you would need a 8 ohm amp.

No sound from subs


take a 9 volt battery and touch the speaker terminals quickly.
they should move and make a noise if they are not blown voice coils.
do not leave the voltage on it for more than 1/2 second,as the dc can burn out the speakers coils

When i turn the volume up high enough one or both fuses on the amp will blow.


This most likely means your amp is blown. All you can do is make sure your battery and ground wires are tight. Also double check to make sure + and - Speaker terminals are going to proper terminals on amplifier. Thanks

Bass speaker start up noise


Hello anne845,

It sounds like the installer wired the amp remote turn-on terminal to an "accessory" lead in your vehicle. Many stock radios do not have a dedicated amp turn-or lead and the alternative is to connect the amp to a switched power source (ignition or accessory). This means the amp turns on whenever you turn on the vehicle ignition, often resulting in a thumping from the subs. It is a perfectly satisfactory alternative, and will not damage either the amp or the sub. But it's irritating.

If the thumping is objectionable, have your installer wire a SPST (Single Pole, Single Throw) toggle switch inline with the turn-on wire. The switch should be mounted so it is accessible by the driver, and whenever you turn on the radio, turn on the toggle switch.

Hope this helps.

Running 4 12s with two insignia 1000 watt amps


Use a pair of two-channel amps that are two-ohm stable, and wire a pair of subs to each amp. Wire them in parallel so the amps see two ohms (wiring in series will show four ohms). Doing this effectively "doubles" the power of the amps. If the amps are not two-ohm stable, they'll fail. Parallel wiring means putting the positive wire of sub 1 to the positive terminal of channel 1 on the amp, and the negative wire of sub 1 on the negative terminal of channel 2. Do the opposite for the second sub. This will give you a LOT of bass response as long as your sub enclosures are properly sized for the speakers.

Amp is not working right


it is possible you need a filter between your head unit and your amp. I had a simalar problem with my car system where you turn it on and the subs go mental. I fixed itby going to my local car audio store and buying a noise filter to go between the amp and head unit. Hope this helps

Wiring


The two seperate wire terminals on the sub are for dual voice coils which means. If You hook up the first terminal to the second terminal then run speaker wire from the second terminal to the amp.It should then increase the subs frequency response and sound better which also means it will be able to handle more bass. As to just having one voice coil hooked up. The two terminals is pretty much the bridge for the sub.

hi, your amp seems to be getting power but the cables might be wrong so it's not getting enough power. the light on the amp should be green if everything is going well. are you sure the cables are suitable for your amp?

Rt 202 led light red and no sound


With the system turned off, disconnect the speaker wires from the amplifier. Turn on the system. If the light stays red, then the amplifier has an internal problem. If the light turns green, then your problem is a blown speaker, or a speaker wiring issue.
