Best wiring method

I have 3 10" MTX thunder 5000s in one box. As is the box is wired with the power coming to the center speaker then each of the outer speakers have "jumper" wire connecting them to the center...I was thinking it would be better to wire them in series (or thats what i'm told its called) by going from the amp to a speaker then crossing the pos. and neg. to the next speaker and crossing once more to the last. Is this a good idea? Will it give me more sound out of my woofers without too much punishment to the amp?
by the way is a pioneer 760w amp

It depends on the resistance of the speakers. They are probably 8 ohm speakers. When wired parallel they will not put a heavy current load on your amp.

Actually, the way they're wired they're already bridged in parallel. The way they're "jumpered" They all get the same amount of voltage and pull more current from your amp. If you wire them in series, each speaker only gets 1/3 the input voltage, and in turn, the entire circuit of 3 speakers uses less current from the amp, meaning less wattage. Having them wired in series will cause less wear and tear on your amp, but you'll not be pleased with the output. It'll be very weak. Try it. You'll notice the difference right away. The way they're wired is the way they're probably supposed to be from mtx, and the speakers probably have a higher resistance, which means they work best when bridged parallel in threes. Your amp is already taking all the punishment thease speakers can suck through it in this setup. If your amp is running cool, you shouldn't have any problems. Hope this helps.

Gauge wire ohm speaker

if the subs are different models or sizes don't install anything.
use the best subwoofer you have, if you use both you can have cancellation with uneven woofers or damage them. use a large ported box and tune it close to the music you listen to.
use a minimum of 4 gauge copper or cca wire. anything smaller and you risk burning the wire, the brand doesn't matter. use 14 gauge or larger for speaker wire and setup your impedance of your subwoofers in the pattern that will give you more power.
see here.

I have 2 different subs in one box, a 12" MTX thunder and a 12" Kicker CVR. the kicker is a dual voice coil while the MTX I dont believe is. Can I use one amp for this set up? And how would it be wired?

im guessing both speakers are 4 ohms ..mtx 4ohms and kicker dual 4ohms..now if your amp can go down to 1 ohm wiring the kicker dual coils in parallel (2ohms) and the mtx connected together (4ohms) should leave you with a final impedance between 1 and 2 ohms ...i suggest you use one or get another

I need to know how to bridge the mtx speaker 4500

I assume you mean wiring a dual 4 ohm voice coil sub to a 2 ohm load, right?

Follow closely

Go from positive of the source (amp or positive post in box) to the positive of both voice coils.

Then go fromt he positive of the source (amp or positive post in box) to the negative of both voice coils.

You will be running two length of speaker wire for this. It's the easy way and makes sure that each voice coil gets clean power.

This is called a parallel set up and will bring two 4 ohm voice coils to a 2 ohm load.

Happy Wiring

My mtx ts5510 stopped working while driving. Was hooked to an mtx thunder 81000 class d and its still working. ????

Inspect speaker for loose wires/broken wires. Check inside box for loose connection. Blown fuse on amp. Ive literally pulled the wires out of the speaker. The little mesh ones from the terminal to the cone. Look for that. If you do find something broken or bad. remember you can call MTX and fix for a flat rate on most evrything they carry. Ive sent several amps there. normally around $100

What is best way to wire 2 mtx thunder 4500's to a kenwood kac-7205? thanks! james

I would hook up the subs in parallel set up. Lower the resistance causes the amp to create more power to the amp. Your amp can handle 2 ohm load so from my stand point it is best to set up this way. Here is the link that displays how to set up subs:

MTX Thunder 3401 not responding. Lit but no sound.

turn down music open sub box and put another speaker at wire and check again if work means sub is ok if not check the signal cable, and put there the speaker to try signal

MTX Thunder 81001 wont push subs

first of all you should check the minimal impedance your amp handles , if is class d it should handle between 1-2 ohms total impedance in a mono conection , meaning whatever quantity of subs you have hooked to your amplifier,their total impedance should the minimum the amp handles that way all the power from your amplifier will be used.
