It is electromechanical not hydraulic so no fluid is needed.

Possibly a shorted output transistor. If it was the power supply you would be blowing fuses, which I assume you aren't.

3/4 inch partical board 2inch wood screws,make sure that you read the spec size because thats what makes you deep bass.Peace

Halving the impedance will draw twice the current. You could technically get a 3 Db more power since the peak voltage will remain the same. BUT if the magnet structure is not intended to use that cone design, the magnet difference MAY not give you 2 ohms.

In fact, if the designed magnetic flux were smaller, you could wind up with a 1 ohm speaker.

trying to get that much power is really kind of silly as even 50 watts with efficient speakers will exceed safe levels of sound that will not cause damage to your ears.

As you push an amp up in power, usually distortion will increase as well.

Hard question to answer because of the lack of information, but my first guess would be the remote turn on wire and my second and third gueses would be a resistors or a blown fuse.

if it started smoking its fried best thing to do is buy a new one unless you dont mind paying alot to fix it

It sounds like your RCAs are pickin up noise somewhere, are your rca cables next to your amp power wire? this could be the problem. Just recheck your signal wires and make sure they aren't close to any significant power cables. Also does the noise only come from your subs or your car speakers to? If it comes from all your speakers you may have a headunit problem... hope this helps

Soild orange is left positive. Solid yellow is right positive

Orion Car Audio... • Answered on Sep 08, 2009

There could be many issues, from fuses in your amp, to power getting to your amps, to "low" impedance on your amp, and the circuit shutting down. Or it could even be your head unit, perhaps there is a setting on the HU that turns ON/OFF the subwoofer. BTW, you are running to low of an impedance on that amp. If my memory serves me correct, the lowest impedance that they JL Audio recommends is 1.5 Ohms.

Orion H2 12.2... • Answered on Aug 10, 2009

Hello brianmitchel,

From what I am able to determine, the Orion HCCA250 is a bridgeable 2-channel amp that is stable to 1ohm when bridged and outputs 800 watts RMS into that load.

The JL W6's in both 10" and 12" versions are dual voice coil with 4ohm coils so they can be wired to present either an 8ohm load (series) or a 2ohm load (parallel). They can handle 600 watts RMS.

With this combination, the best configuration would be to wire the sub voice coils in parallel for a 2ohm load and then parallel both subs to the amp bridged terminals for a final impedance of 1ohm. The subs will each be getting 400 watts.

In any event, I would not recommend running subs in series. There is some evidence for distortion being caused by something termed "back EMF".

Hope this helps.

Orion HCCA-D5000... • Answered on Aug 03, 2009

well what kinda of subs are you trying to run and what are the ohms?

Orion 8002 Car... • Answered on Jul 19, 2009

If you have one sub dual voice coil, just paralel the sub and conect to brigde amp. Simple...

Orion HCCA-D5000... • Answered on Jul 18, 2009

the specs are as follows
250watts x1 at 4 ohms
400watts x1 at 2 ohms
600watts x1 at 1 ohm
it is bridgeable and has a 50 amp maxi fuse

Orion HCCA-D5000... • Answered on Jul 06, 2009

the rca jacks on the amp may be bad or internal circutry may be fried
