    We need to know what your mono amp is stable at, ie: 2 Ohm, 4 Ohm, 8 Ohm? What model of Audiobahn amp do you have? If you have 3 Audiobahn AW1206T subs, then they are DVC (dual voice coil) 4 Ohms per coil. I found a link for the specs on those speakers.http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_133_...

I have 1 audio bahn eternal series awes15p 15inch subwoofer.I'm having problems hooking it in my vehicle,I don't have the wiring manual.I would appreciate if you can tell me or give me a...


There are some things to think about when you install this.

1. Is the sub a dual or single voice coil?
2. What ohms are the voice coils?
3. Is your amp 2 channel or mono?
4. What are the ohms loads allowed by your amp?

I am going to assume your sub is dual 4 ohm and you want to get as much power out of your amp as you can. I am also assuming the amp is a mono channel amp. (if it's a two channel amp, you can bridge the channels)

Go from the positive of your amp and wire to both positives of the voice coils. Then go from the negative of the amp to the negative of both voice coils. You will have 2 sets of wires to your sub. This is called a parallel set up. This drops the load of one dual 4ohm sub to a 2 ohm load. The lower the resisitance, the more power is able to flow from your amp, giving your more sound. Make sure your amp is 2 ohm stable.

Hope this helps

I have two audiobahn aw1206t 12in. subs in a box hooked to a 100.1 american bass amp its 1000 watt mono block. i also ran a capacitor due to my lights dimming. but for some reason my amp keeps kicking over...


This could be caused due to the impedance load being to low. Your amp is stable to 2 ohm load however its very possible that you have your subs wired to a 1 ohm load that would cause the amp to go into protect mode. The subs you have are dual 4 ohm voice coils and would need to be wired in series/parallel. I've included a link that will show you how the subs should be wired.

I have 2 4 ohm 12" audiobahn jw1251j and a 1500 watt mono planet audio amp. what ohm do i wire the subs to the amp


depends how low your amps impedance goes down, if it can handle 2 ohm then you have to connect your speakers parallel to it (both speaker plus to amps plus and both speakers minus to amps minus) this will result in 2ohm speakers. if your amp does 4 ohm then use either one speaker for 4 ohm or two speakers in serial connection (in row) but you will have then 8 ohms.

Why want my subwoofer play like it's supposed to? It barely plays


check your ohm load on that audiobahn sub some amps run at an bypass or ohm load and then kick off if its the sub itself is not a 2ohm stable or 4ohm stable

I need to hook up two audiobahn A1200Q subs to a A1300hcq amp


The amplifier is only stable to 2 ohms.
Assuming the cubs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils - a 2 ohm load with 2 subs is not possible.
You can only wire up 1 dual 4 ohm voicecoil sub (both positives to amp... and both negatives to amp) to get a 2 ohm mono load.

Pioneer 800w mono issue


It can be many things it possible the amp cannot handle the 4 ohm load and simply goes into power protection mode. Also make sure your using the correct gage wire to run power from your battery to the amp to thin and it wont have enough power to perform.

Best way to wire the audiobahn eternal


Well, from what I can find, the best you could do is 2 ohm stable. This is only if you have a decent 2 ohm stable amplifier. In order to wire it to 2 ohms you will need to take the positives and hook them together and run one wire to the brigde positive of the amplifier. Then take the negatives and hook them together and run one wire to the bridge negative of the amplifier. Make sure you have a good enough amplifier to run this sub also. I would definately use a mono block amp that is 2 ohm stable and at least 1000 watts. I'm not sure if you have the 10",12", or 15" but 1000 should do it. There is one key that many people miss.......it is just as bad to underpower subs as it is to overpower them. And make sure you get a quality amplifier....if it is a brand new 1000 watt amp and it is under a hundred dollars you are not getting a good amplifier. Amps that I would recommend getting are gently used high end amplifiers, namely Memphis. I'm sorry I've rambled enough, but if you need anymore help just let me know. Good luck

Unsureness of wiring configurations.


Mamola,

Get an amp with at least 200 Watts RMS. The RMS value is what is important about driving Subs. This could be proclaimed to be a 1000 Watt amp. REad the RMS value.

Wiring. It is better to series your Speakers to give them and your amp more reliability,

Get a Mono or Bridgeable amp. If it si bridgeable, BRidge the output as described in the manual you get. Some Amps have a diagram right on the output..

AMP+ to Sub1 +
Sub1 - to Sub2 +
Sub2 - to Amp -

Get a 4 Guage wring kit. Run your power wiring down the Drivers side, and Audio signal wiring down the Passenger side, keep the two separate.

Amp heats up and goes into protect mode


Hi Saint108. You're describing it well, and i know what the problem is already. The MA audio amp, can't hold with a 2 ohm load. It's too low for that amp, that's for sure. Those are budget amps and they are not well built enough to handle low ohm setups like that. It's overheating and there's no ways around it.. Other than wiring your subs differently ! Just wire your sub directly (not in parallel) in a 4 ohm load, you will notice it will stop overheating that much. Do it quick, you'll most likely fry your amp giving it such hard work !! The HUM you're hearing could be related to it also. Try that, and keep me posted on the status. Thanks ! Cheebster.

SOUND Q SERIES
DUAL 6-OHM CONFIGURATION
Accommodating the rising trend of triple-subwoofer applications, Audiobahn’s Sound Q subwoofers come in dual 6-ohm configurations. This allows three Sound Q subwoofers to be wired in a 1- or 4-ohm operation. You now have the option to use a wider range of amplifiers to fit the needs of your specific application.

MULTI-CONNECT LUG LOCK TERMINALS
Audiobahn’s patented Multi-Connect Lug Lock Terminals offer increased versatility in wiring multiple subwoofers to an amplifier or to another voice coil. Multi-connect terminals allow you to use single wire connections in each terminal rather than combining multiple wires into one terminal. This feature allows you to use a full 8-gauge wire in each terminal.

COMMON FEATURES
Dual 6 Ohm VOICE COIL
Multi-connect Lug Lock Terminals

The Link below should answer all your questions.
Also remember to try to keep the lengths of the jumpers the same. I would make all the connections inside the box then use the teminal block of the box to connect to the amp.
Keep in mind that you can only get 1 Ohm if you use 3 woofers.
Your configuration allows for 1.5 Ohm
