Check the remote wire it it needs to be hooked to the atenna power wire on the radio the power wire to the amp needs to go to the BATT. with a fuse make sure your amp is grounded well and less than 18 in. then check your RCA wires after all that then go back and check your sub output on your radio

Have you tried to hook up another sub (spk) to the amp? Or just wire it to a stereo to see if it works? single voice coil or dual?

I have 2 12 inch kicker rt dual 2 ohm subs. On a kicker cx1200.1 i want to kno how to hook it up to 2ohm to the amp. And if i can add another 10 inch kicker rt 2ohm sub in the future.


Do to the impedance Of your sub u can't run it @2ohms its going to either be @1ohm or 4ohms and your amp isn't 1ohm stable and u will risk damaging your amp. So your only option is to run it @4ohms and on a good note your sub is 100-600 watts RMS and your amp will push 400-500 watts RMS @4ohms. Now if you want to run 2 sub's in the future That amp will work perfect because it pushes 1,200watts RMS @2ohms and to wire your 2 sub's @1ohm just follow the steps in the image below. Hope this helped.25345194-v0hbouy2nvquqteoroa5j5rq-3-0.png

Need a wiring diagram to hook up two 10 inch subs and 15 inch sub a kicker 250.1 amp


Series or parallel? Single, dual voice coil? I'm not sure you have the right size amp for all 3 speakers. And I wouldn't wire the 10's together with the 15. The larger sub is going to have a larger power demand. You could wire the 2-10's together on this amp, and get another mono amp for the 15.

I have 2 10" Kicker Comp Subs


That amplifier is only rated at 150 watts at 4 ohms, or 300 watts at 2 ohms. Not a very strong amp to run 2 kicker comps. My guess is you have the subs wired wrong for your application. There are 2 types of subs, one is a dual 4 ohm, and one is a dual 2 ohm. Most people bridge these coils together and that cuts your ohms in half. For example. Lets say you have the 10cvr104 subs. Thats the dual 4 ohm sub. You wire the coils together in parallel, now its a 2 ohm sub. You have 2 of these subs running off of your amp, if they are hooked up in parallel, now you have a 1 ohm load, out of the amplifiers normal operation. Your amplifiers internals heat up really quick and there is a thermal overload, putting your amplifier into circuit protection mode. My suggestion for wiring your subs is as follows: for each speaker, wire the coils together like this- positive coil1 to negative coil 2 and negative coil 1 to positive coil 2. That is called running in series, and doubles your ohm load. Next, we need to wire the speakers together properly to hook up to your amplifier. For this, since the coils are hooked together, you only need to use one set of terminals from each sub. And take the positive from sub 1 and hook it to positive of amp. Take negative sub 1 and hook it to positive of sub 2. Take negative of sub 2 and hook it to negative of amp.

I have a mono amplifier hooked up to a 12 inch sub. I have everything hooked up. The ground is good. However, when I turn the gain/level up to around 55% the sub starts thumping loudly. Just a rhythmic...


There are a few things you can look at. Check to make sure you power is at a constant 12 volts. Usually a dip in voltage will set off a protection mode, but it protection is malfunctioning, this may be occuring. You also may need a larger guage wire for power and ground, depending on how many amps your amplifier is drawing. You subwoofer may be the problem too. Is it a dual 4 ohm, or dual 2 ohm? If it's dual 2 ohm and your amp isnt' one ohm stable, this could be causing the amp to overload. From your description it sounds like the amp is "clipping", so my gut tells me it's more of a power problem. Recheck all your wiring. If you have a multimeter to check your power, use it. Good luck.

XA10002 dual channell amp pushing a single 12 inch JL Audio sub and continues to go into protection mode. All setting are turned to the lowest possible and remote wire, power wire, and ground wire are all...


Make sure you are wiring the sub to the correct ohm's. Some amps have a protective feature that will send them into protect mode if they do not since the right ohm load. If the sub is wired correctly double check your ground wire on the amplifier, and if that if also fine then your amp will need serviced.

I have 1500 kicker amp and 2 15L7 4oh want to hook up


you can't get full power out of it because those subs can be wired series/parrallel to a 1 ohm load or just series to a 4 ohm load and you don't want to put a 1 ohm load on this amp... you need dual 2 ohm subs for this amp... I have the same setup but with dual 2 ohm subs and it is rediculous... you need to buy different subs that are dual 2 ohm or buy an amp that is stable at 1 ohm... you will only get 750 rms out of a kicker 1500.1 at 4 ohms so u will do more harm than good to your subs.

Bridging 800a4


That all depends upon whether or not the sub you are running has dual voice coils or just a single voice coil. The 800a4 is a four channel amp; thus the only way you can bridge it will be 3 channel or 2 channel. If you are running a dual voice coil sub then you can wire the amp two channel and get 400 watts x 2 @ 4 ohms. Make sure that you sub can handle this kind of power though.

Here are the specs:
4 x 100 @ 4 ohms (13.8V - <0.05% THD)
4 x 200 @ 2 ohms (13.8V - <0.10% THD)
2 x 400 @ 4 ohms bridged (13.8V - <0.10% THD)
Fuse: External 60A
Manufactured in 1999 - 2001

Wiring the coils together


For each sub, tie the DVCs in parallel ("+"s together, then "-"s together). This will make the subs look like 2 ohms to the amp. Then, put one sub on each channel of the amp. That will put about 280W rms onto each sub, the max for the amp.

Wiring


You may be surprised to learn that even though there is a negative and positive on the sub it usually dont matter all that much because that amp allows you to switch the polarity of its outputs to allow your mids to sound better... anyways on to your question To wire a sub it depends on how many you have, if they are dual or single voice coils, what impediance your amp is stable at. Tell me what type of amp you are hooking this subwoofer up to and how many are being connected. And ill try and give you the best way to connect the sub(s) to your amp.
