Question about Visonik Car Audio & Video

Open Question

I own the Visonik V212BS Bass Stimulus Package. It did not come with a owners manual. I have 3 questions: 1. What are the specifications (Wattage, RMS,) for the 2 12" subwoofers? 2. What are the specifications for the Amp and is it 2 ohm stable. 3. What is the best way to wire these subs to the amp (straight, bridge, parrallel, or series)

    I have this system too. I contacted the site i bought it from and asked these same Q's. heres what they told me:



    The subs are 750W max each. they couldnt come up with a RMS for me (which is dumb), and the amp is not 2 ohm stable.



    and somehow in their dumb paperwork it tells them that the subs prewired in the box are wired for bridged mode. which makes no sense cus i took those subs out and they were wired straight.



    This package is very shitty on any kind of documentation. hope this helps.

Hi Gott Mudd,

 

I can relate to feeling it in the bones. You got the stuff to do it.  You should try the Alpine MP3 head units with bass boost, those are bad to the bone.

 

Wiring: 

 

Amp to Speaker I like to use the code VC for Voice coil, and AO for Amplifier output.  Also + for positive.  If I say VC1-, I am referring to the first connector starting left to right on the Alpine Sub. Now I have not seen a Kicker KX1200.1 amplifier.  All I see are MRA, MRP, or PDX prefix on the part numbers. So take what I am saying as a guess. You may want to revisit looking at the model of the amp to be sure your giving the right information.

 

We are going for  2 Ohms. Paralleling the two subs, not the voice coils. The voice coils will be series.  Bridge the amp if necessary to get mono channel. only using AO+ and AO- for output.

 

AO+ to Sub1VC1+

AO+ to Sub2VC1+

Sub1VC1- to Sub1VC2+

Sub2VC1- to Sub2VC2+

AO- to Sub1VC2-

AO- to Sub2VC2- 

 

Set your Crossover to LPF

Adjust the bass gain down to lowest until you test.

Set the Frequencies to midrange between 40 and 100hz  

 

Your box can be ported or not. It depends on the space your have.  If you do not have much room, go Enclosed and build a box that the inside space is less than 1 cubic foot.  Make sure you give barely  enough clearance for the speaker to fit.  If you have room, Go with a box and vent it with a 3 inch Vent tube 10 inches long.

If you have a 500a2 and two 4 ohm single voice coil speakers, you have only one option. Connect one speaker to each channel.

SOURCE: amp getting really hot

If depends on what the amp is rated to run. If it is only rated to run 2 ohms x2ch then it can only run 4 ohms x1ch. If you run it at 1 or 2 ohms that is too low, too much current, and it will get hot and eventually blow up under hard use. Some quality amps can live that way, and it depends on the sub and what frequency you are running it at. For normal use I would not recommend it. Wire to sub at 4 ohms x1 (or 2 ohms x2ch) for that amp if that is what it is supposed to be at, I'm not sure from your description. Also enhance cooling of the amp if you can, I run fans on mine if they have a heat issue. Warm is one thing, hot is another and not good for amp.

SOURCE: ohm load???

You can't wire a pair of single voice coil 2ohm subs to achieve a 2 ohm mono load. Too bad you don't have 2 four ohm SVC's. Sorry

Have 3- 13 watt mini spiral bulbs on fixture. When switch in auto mode, lights hum, flicker and not maximum brightness. When switched to on position, lights stop flickering and humming. Full brightness as...


-Replace the compact florescent bulbs with regular incandescent bulbs and see if problem continues.
-Lighting controls are made for different kinds of bulbs.
-Your package should say what the watt rating and type of bulb.

According to the PR180 manual:
-I am looking at the Leviton PR180 occupancy sensor manual, and the PR180 sell-sheet, and these documents say for incandescent and fluorescent (rapid-start magnetic ballast only).
-Compact fluorescent are supposed to have a magnetic ballast.
-The manual does not specifically say it works with 'compact fluorescent'
-The manual does not say there is a minimum amount of wattage either. Some controls will not work correctly if the overall wattage is low. Your overall wattage is 39watts.

Read the product package (if this is a new installation and you have the package)
Try the incandescent bulbs.
If the PR180 is not your product, add a comment with product number and I'll look for information

Adjusting wattage on kenwood kac 9103 class D mono amp


That amplifier is 900W x 1 @ 2ohms.
If your subs are 4ohm SVC wired Parallel, resulting in a 2 ohm load, each sub will only see 1/2 of the rated power. (450W ea.)
Your gain (sensitivity) setting should be between 75% and 85% to max. You will be fine.

Ok this problem is killing me...


maybe the speaker is bad

First try one thing, switch the rca jacks around and see if the other speaker stops working this time.

If so the problem is in the rca jack or head unit.

If the same speaker is still not working, the problem will be the speaker, you will have no other options left since you changed amplifiers and checked all wiring.

Let me know if this helps you
