Wire the amplifier to the subwoofers. Connect the positive output wire to the positive wire of your first speaker.
If the subs are dvc 4 ohm, they can be configured for a final impedance of 3 ohms, again safe for the amp.
How to wire subs and amp. Make sure the engine is off and disconnect the negative terminal. Be sure to mind the channels. For example, our xthunder1200.1 amplifier is rated for 1200 watts rms @ 1 ohm.
I can see how in some cases if the subs didn’t have good speaker terminals that it would be a good idea to do use a junction block/terminal block etc., but that’s not a problem with your subs. One 8 awg ofc power wire runs (40 amp agu fuse in the distro block) to power a kicker cxa400.1 amp for my sub and a second 8 awg ofc power wire (in second output from the distro block, fused at 40 amps) to a rockford fosgate 1 farad capacitor. Okay well i seen wiring diagrams on how to wire subs down to 2ohms but when it shows the wire coming from the subs they go back to the amp and the amp is always a monoblock or class d amp.
As for the power output to your subs, that depends upon the ohm stability rating on the amp, the impedance of the subs and how you wire them. Wire the amp to your first speaker. Also i have got new speaker wire from the amp to the subs.
Series wire the subs into 2 sets of 3 each with each set representing an impedance of 6 ohms. Also was thinking about just trading the subs for the 4 ohm dvc 12s l7. Welcome to the ct sounds subwoofer wiring wizard.
This may mean splicing the two wires together, but more often the amp is made to have the wire of the speaker inserted into an output jack. The amp powers on but the subs get no sound from the amp. Would like to make it work if possible although realize the 8 ohm subs would not be anyone’s first choice.
Take the positive leads from each sub and connect them to the positive speaker out on the amp. Then, connect a power cable to the bolt of the positive terminal. This step will be the same regardless of whether you are wiring in series or parallel.
My amp is a mono block amp but has 2 positive and 2 negative terminals. Then place the negative of the second voice coil to the negative contact of the same channel of the amp. For reference, with the big 3 upgrade to the main wiring, you would often use 1/0 awg coming from the alternator to the battery, but the section of the circuit between your amplifiers and each channel of audio only represents a portion of the total power of your car audio system, which is why we can use thinner wires in some places, compared to the main power wires.
Regarding the power, i would say try it and see what you think, as how it sounds & etc will depend on your subwoofer box, too. I have a 1500 watt sub dvc 2 and a 4000 watt amp. Soundstream reference ref4.920 4 channel amp 2 rockford fosgate 8 ohm 10″ subs in a dual sub box (rfz1810) the amp and subs i basically got for free and just bought her the new deck.
And i've switched out all rca cables. To wire an amp, you'll need to connect it to your vehicle's battery. If the subwoofer features spring clips in order to use speaker wire, then you can use the speaker output of the receiver to hook it all up.
Also has slave input don't know to much besides gotta be precise when wiring the subs and tuning the amp. You can then plug the cord. So i need help with connecting my 2 subs a my amp.
And negative on one amp and positive on other amp. If you have a 2 ohm stable amp, and two 4 ohm subs then you should wire them in parallel. Connect the amp to the first speaker.
If the subwoofers are wired to a total impedance of 4. Then do the same for the second sub. Also i've hooked up an old amp that i knew worked and still had no sound to subs.
They are new subs and have been hooked directly to the head unit and work. Then place the positive of the first contact to the positive of one channel of the amp. You can, those should be dual voice coil subs, if you are using 2ohm dual voice coil and wire them in series the amp will see 2ohms(ideal 1000 watts rms 500 to each sub) if you wire them in parallel the amp will see 0.5 ohms (not ideal) if the kickers are 4 ohms dual voice coil and you run them in parallel the amp will see 1ohm (not ideal for that amp) if you run them in series the amp will.
Feed the power cord through the vehicle, hiding it in the plastic panels along the floor, until it reaches the trunk. From the wires coming out of the speaker, connect the positive speaker lead to terminal a (the positive for channel 1) and connect the negative speaker lead to terminal d (the negative for channel 2). The amp is rated 3000 watts and 1 ohm and at 4 ohms it’s rated 750 watts.
Our subwoofer wiring calculator allows you to figure out how to wire your dual 1 ohm, dual 2 ohm, and dual 4 ohm subwoofers in several different qualities. I have 0 awg wiring and i was wondering if it would be better to wire at 1 or 4 ohm. Its output is 180 watts rms into 2 ohms when the battery is normal at 13.8v and the amplifier is not clipping.
But since the 4 ohm subs can be wired differently resulting in an effective total impedance of 1 ohm, you get the full 1000 watt power from your amp and match the rated power of your subs for full performance. Parallel wire all three sets to the amp for a final load of 3 ohms. If you are wanting to know how to wire your subs look no further than our wire diagram.
In fact, using 4 gauge wire like he mentioned is wasting money as 8 gauge wire or even 10 could be used from the amp to the subs (depends on the length). Wire all of the voice coils in parallel (individual 2 ohm load). Check to see which two terminals are used for bridge mode on your amplifier.
This will be labeled on the amp. Any responses would be greatly. Sadly if you wire the diamond subs in other ways they either will be too low of a load for the amp (1, 2 ohm) or can’t develop full power (wired as 2 8 ohm speakers).
Want to wire 2 subs on each amp at 1 ohm to get the most power out of the amp without running it at.05 ohm?? Wire the first sub by running a wire from the positive terminal on the amp to the positive bridge terminal on the sub. This process is the same as connecting a basic stereo speaker.
The r 1000 amp to my knowledge is not 1 ohm stable so you need to do the following. Series the subs so that each sub is configured to 4 ohms. I've already figured out that i'm going to wire both in parallel to get the resistance i need on the amp and i know that i can connect speaker 1 to speaker 2 then speaker 2 to the amp but what i'm wondering is, can i wire each sub in parallel then connect them each to the.
