If they 4 ohm speakers and they are rated for 1800 a piece( thats hard to believe )

then parallel them

and you need to ell us if thats the speakers peak power( which it has to be.. )
Now tell us their average power dissipation capability and impedance..

You'll geta safe answer

SOURCE: Kenwood KAC-9152D monoblock

The amp says it's 1 ohm stable, so assuming the DVCs are dual 4 ohm, you should be able to connect all "+"'s together and all "-"s together, like the picture below:

As for the amp shutting off for a few seconds, it sounds like it's either:
A) Not getting enough power at high volume.
OR
B) Overheating.

The cap on the +12V to the amp should help, but putting a meter on the +12V might tell you whether it's dropping too low (<11V).

When you first turn the volume up, how long does it work fine before shutting off? Is it with the vehicle running or not?

SOURCE: will a sony 1000 watt amp model # xm-1652z run 2

personally i wouldnt use a sony amp for powering anything but,however if your going run it what i would recommend is if the speakers are at 4 ohms then run in series per speaker then put the speakers in series as well so you will keep your 4 ohms then run the amp in mono,however just to let you know that amp will not push fubars enough to really make them thump my advice is to goto http://www.sonicelectronix.com  if you have 200 dollars you can get a nice  Hifonics TXi 1508D that will push those monsters quite well thats 1 ohm stable and will barley get warm even after hours of thumpage,also if your running subs monoblocks are the way to go hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: can a 1000 watt amp run 800 rms subs and best wiring option

yeah it will run them but you won't get your full power because the rms for your subs is high. try bridging them with some 8 gauge wire, and of you got a crossover it will help you out alot

SOURCE: will a sony xm-1652z 1000w amp run 2 dvc 4 ohm 800

IT WILL POWER THE SUBS WITH NO PROBLEM. I WILL NEED TO KNOW WHAT THAT MAX WATT THE SPEAKERS CAN HANDLE BEFORE GIVING PROPER ADVISE. RMS IS RECOMMENDED MINIMUM SETTINGS.

SOURCE: 2 12" dvc subs 2 ohm stable amp

+ on amp output to + on speaker #1 to + on speaker #2. - on amp output to - on speaker #1 to - on speaker #2. This is a parallel circuit....4 ohms in parallel with 4 ohms = 2 ohms. IF it were wired in series....would represent 8 ohm load.

I was wondering what wattage amp I should have for my 2 kenwood excelon 1600 watt rms 12s an if I should wire them parallel

first thing are the subs 1600rms a piece? If so, buddy you need about 3000 watts rms. No less than 2000 to do them justice. Wiring parallel depends on the ohm load of the subs, if they are dvc's and the lowest ohm load the amp can handle. Not all amps are 1ohm stable.

Can someone please show me how to wire my subs to amp.. i have a 2600 watt planet audio 2 channel amp (2 ohm stable) and my subs are soundstream tarantulas t4 12s 900/1800 watts total. they are 1 ohm subs...

for your subs and amp the best way would be for the speakers to be wired in series1ch (mono or bridged)to have a 4 ohm load to your amp stable at 2 ohms
see pic for wiring diagram for 2 1 ohm dvc subs wired in series.
you will need more than one speaker wire for wiring the subwoofers coils(positive & negative terminals) together
hope this helps :~)

How do i bridge 2-4ohm dvc's to a mono block

If you have a DVC 4ohm speaker, and you are using both voice coils, the amp is seeing a 2ohm load.
If you bridge the amp, you CAN run both subs as long as the amp is Two Ohms Stable.
Wire each subs voice coils in parallel.(Positive to positve, neg to neg.) (2ohms) each.
Then wire the two subs in series.(Neg from amp to neg of sub one, pos of sub one to neg of sub two. then pos of sub two to pos of amp.

If it sounds too hard, leave it as you are already running the amp at two ohms.

Amps on woofers are fine just won't hit

your probably making your amp run to low ohms if its a 2 channel amp bridged to one channel you can probably only run it at four ohms

Also seeing as your subs are 2ohm dvc you can't wire them individually to 2ohm and use each channel separately. So i'd recommend buying a 2ohm stable monoblock or running it at four ohms. a 1400 watt amp'll still pound at 4ohms and it'll extend your amp's life span

Best results

huge shared common space slot loaded box (size depends on sub 10", 12" 15" you need to clarify that please) the amp specs on earthquakes site say the phd5000 is rated at a max output of 5k watts at 1 ohm 3k watts at 2 ohm so, with 3 dvc 2 ohm subs you only have 3 options of which only 2 will be a usable solution:

1. 3- 2ohm dvc series at sub parralel at amp = about 1.33 ohms at the amplifier this is the best option to get the most power to the subs as each sub will produce a 4 ohm load then wire each one to the amp the amp sees 3 4 ohm parralel loads which = 1.33 ohm so based on the amp specs you would be close to 1200 watts per sub.

2. 3- 2ohm dvc wired in series at sub and all 3 subs series wired together very difficult to wireand will give you a 12 ohm load which is next to no power at all (not a viable solution)

3. 2- 2ohm dvc parralel wired to each other and then at amp the amp sees a 1 ohm load and makes 5k watts max but you can only (REREAD THAT LINE! ONLY USE 2 SUBS IN THIS WAY) WHICH GIVES THE MOST POWER BUT ONLY USES 2 SUBS

2 ohm dvc and monoblock sub amp

Yes. When you run two-two ohm subs to a monoblock amp its on the same channel meaning there ran parallel, and that makes it one ohm and most mono-blocks won't read one ohm. Are you popping fuses in the amp?
