Your speakers should be more than adequate for your amp.

It should tell you on the back of the sub ,The continus watts it will handle, If not phone the place you got it from, Or some place that sells them,

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

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:

Rewire your stereo cables as such:

Red- positive - battery
Black - ground - chassis
Remote (Yellow) - ignition switch

The "LINE OUT" should go to your SUB-WOOFER.

The while-lined wires paired with the solid colored wires are either your Front LR and/or Rear L/R.

Is there a option on the chanels that say ''Bridged''? If so, you can hook the subs up in parellel or series to get different ohm loads. Usually the lower ohms, the more power amp puts out. Those subs can handle 225 watts RMS whitch means the power it can handle constantly. If the amp gives more than 225 watts RMs, you could be at risk of blowing the sub. If you could give me the model # of the amp, I can be of more help.

if the speaker cone moves it should produce some sound if it doesn't move when power is applied then the voice coil is frozen.

not really a power issue unless its a "powered sub" and if that's the case then you should not be running in high level sound using speaker wire (especially off a 300 w amp) but instead a low level signal via RCA cable.

Hello jandytaala,

The recommended power range for you T4510-04 is 112.5 to 225 watts RMS. So you need a monoblock amp within that range. You could go up to about 300 watts RMS, but watch the gain and don't try to get too much from a single 10" sub.

The Orion Cobalt shown here would be a good match and is only $139.99. For another $60, the Alpine MRP-M500 will output 300 watts into 4 ohms.

Hope this helps.

How do you have the subs wired and what impedance are they? Your amp is only stable to 2ohms. If they are 4ohm drivers, 2 have to be series & 2 have to be parallel. If their 8ohm drivers, parallel is fine. If your not sure, add a comment to this post with the model numbers on your subs and I will get you the correct info needed to do it right.

Hello,

I've got a pair of these MTX's subs powered from a Fusion 450 watt 2-channel amp. For the price, they are great. By the way, they are 4-ohm.

My first suspicion would be that something in the first incorrect wiring damaged either the amp or the subs. Can you explain specifically what the "installing the subs incorrectly" means? Was the amp output shorted out at any time or was it operated without a load? Either of these conditions will fry an amp and sometimes, the protection circuitry doesn't work either.

First make sure that your amp is still working. Check both the primary power fuse, usually located near the vehicle battery, and the fuses on both sides of the amp. Make sure that when you turn the system on, the power light comes on steady (blinking is protection mode). Test your subs one at a time on a speaker output.

yes you could go with a 2 channel. You could alwayse bridge it.

I was having a similar issue. I checked every wire from the battery to stereo to amp, checked the ground, pulled the stereo to double check the wiring was all correct. Everything seemed good so I thought it had to be my battery not putting out enough power. Tested it and it was good. What it turned out to be was the connection from the power cord to the battery. It had a tiny bit of built up corrosion that was making the amp go into protect mode. Cleaned it up and hooked it back up and has been golden since.
The link attached is pretty straight up on what you need to check for different circumstances. I'm guessing it's a low voltage issue. Good luck
