SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how should i wire 2 dual 2ohm subs to this amp?

If you wire them in parallel you will have a 1 ohm load. wire them in series and you have a 4 ohm load.
The 4 ohm load is much safer to run.

SOURCE: Phoenix Gold Xenon 1200 mono not pushing subs and making noise.

This sounds like a problem with the head unit output to the sub amp. Are you using a Pioneer head unit? If so, you may have a problem with some surface mounted fuses inside the radio on the main board. Certain Pioneer head units have a common problem with these fuses blowing. They are fuses for the ground on the RCA outputs.

Let me know if this is the case, and if it is I can give you the part number of these fuses and tell you where they are located, but you would need good soldering skills to replace them. Also let me know what model number your head unit is.

Thanks,

Dave

SOURCE: humming noise in amp

You must break it down through a process of eliminating items. With the system running unplug the RCAs from the amp. Do you still hear the noise? Try turning the gain down on the amp a bit and increasing the subwoofer level on the head unit instead. Make sure you have a low pass crossover set (probably below 80Hz).
Does the noise change with engine RPM?
Try a different RCA cable. I find that most times noise filters will make the problem worse not better. If none of the above things work, check that the grounds within the car are good, battery to frame, to engine block and chassis. Sometimes a bad vehicle ground is the cause. If all else fails, hook it up to someone else's system and see how it works.

SOURCE: Alpine PDX1.600 amp cuts off

Make sure there's no missmatched impedance. If your sub running 2 ohms then your amp has to be 2 ohms stable. Does the amp blow fuses or get really hot? If it does it can be a fire hazard and I would recommend taking it out of your car. It could be that you don't have sufficient grounding. The grounding needs to be very close to the amp and the paint needs to be thoroughly scratched off. Otherwise could be a blown transistor within the amplifier, you can check this by opening up the amp, running a multimeter and testing the transistors for resistance.

How do i wire a fusion 12'' active encloser up to my car?


OK. (1) The RCA's plug into your audio-In on your amp and the other end of your RCA's plugs into the back of your cd player's audio-out. (2) The small blue wire is the "Remote wire" the one end is wired together with a blue wire in back of cd player other end to amp..To attach wire "remove some of the rubber insulator on wire about a 1/2 inch then twist wires together and put electrical tape to cover or wire nut if you have one." (3) "Ground wire" this is the black wire one side to "amp - neg" and the other end to frame of vehicle. " find a bolt in trunk and put the end of the wire around that and tighten bolt" but before putting bolt on take sand paper to the metal frame where the bolt hole is and sand all the paint off! (4) Last Power wire the "red wire". Cut about 12 inches off power wire plug one end to "amp + pos" the other end to the fuse...Now with the rest of the Power wire plug the one end to the otherside of fuse and run that threw car either driverside door or underneath the dash to the "+ pos red" side of battery.
Then your done! Good luck! and wire in that order and you want blow anything! Give me a thumbs up if you like!

How to wire a sony 1200 watt amp


I believe what your trying to do is to run 2 12" subs and some other satillite speakers? We used to do that all the time.. That is called running the amp in "mixed mono" that's where the mids & tweets are run in stereo while the subs are bridged mono. This configuration is what made Rockford Fosgate "The Bomb" back in the day. To do what you want your subs have got to be 8 ohms, NOT 4, Dual Voice Coil 4 ohms would be OK. Before i tell you how it can be done let me tell you what will happen... For one thing you will be "making" your own cross overs for the subs and mids and tweets. Forget about using the cross overs on the amp. 2ndly you will lose about 1/3 to 1/2 of the amps power because the crossovers are so inefficient, so don't even think your going to get anywhere near 1200 watts from the amp. More like 300, and that's on a good day. But if you still want to do it you go to your Radio Shack and get 1ea 6.0 mHy (milhenry) coil and two 47 mfd (microfared) capacitors, or something close to that value. So you would wire your mids & tweets normal in stereo and on the + line to each mid wire in the 47 mfd capacitor. That is your h/p crossover which will crossover your mids @ appx 130hz. Now on your subs. You want to wire them in parellel (both +s twisted together and both -s twisted together so it looks like there is just one woofer with a + and a -) Than from the L+ of the amp run a wire to the coil and from the coil to the + of the woofers, than using the R- of the amp to the -s of the woofers. Do not use any of the amps built in crossovers leave it on full. Good luck. Mark @ Sounds Good to Me Tempe, AZ

Alpine type-r 2ohm dual voice coil help


try reconnecting your rca's from the deck to the amp when finished wire one speaker positive to positive on left channel and negative to negative on right channel then connect the 1st subwoofer. if all power and sound is fine and working turn off power to amp and connect negative terminal of 1st sub to positive on 2nd sub and positive from first sub to negative on second crossing the wires runs the speakers in series another way to try is parralel the speakers wiring by connecting positive left channel output of amp to positive on 1st sub same with the negative then splice positive to positive on second sub and same with negative.

My amp wont power both subs the same


you most likely mess up you wiring... im not sure what ohm resistance your subs are, but if its 2ohm or 4ohm you wire straight foreward one sub all positive wires to left positive, all negitive to left negitive, and the same with sub 2 to the right terminal. BUT if your subs are 8ohm then wire it with all positives from both subs to LEFT positive and wire all negitive wires to RIGHT negitive... and see if that helps and good luck!

I have a 15" Boston Acoustics Subwoofer and it has started buzzing loudly, even when the receiver is turned off...what could that be?


If this woofer has it's own built in amp, it might be your rca cables, try moving them around. Anytime you have sound signal wires crossing power cords you must have them cross like T and not ll you get what I mean? just try keeping power away from sound. GOOD LUCK.

Kicker 750.1 Amp wont play music


it is probably the rca inputs on the amp may have fried. was your cd decked turned up loudly before the power went out? did any wires accidently touch each other? If had worked fine and then suddenly stopped, than either a wire came loose or the inputs fried. try using different cables and I also suggest disconnecting power for 24 hours and then reconnect. If the green light is on then it is getting power and the problem is in the rca cables or the inputs
