For wiring subwoofers, we recommend using wires of 12- to 16-gauge in size. How can I wire the two speakers to get a 1ohm load? Make sure you set the filter to Low-pass, for the subwoofer. The other thing is that the sub out on my Denon is surrounded by other connections in all spots except below it, so im not sure if it would fit properly. You've got lots of different ways to hook up this combination. Not knowing exactly what amplifier or subwoofers you're referring to make it impossible to give advice on how to wire them together or even know if they'd work together at all. The amplifier has no effect on a sub's impedance.
For seconds, two non matching subs do not equal better bass - you will simply end up with the worst of both subs. I know different, this is the first time i have worked with an amp like this so i threw me off a little. From everything I've read on this site, this should work just fine, if not well, correct? As an alternative, you could wire each sub to a set of output terminals. Sometimes, connecters, then wire 2 400 watt rockfords connected in parallel wiring diagrams. I wired my subs individualy parallel to bring them down to 2 ohm each + to + and - to - so outside in the connectors i connected the neg of sub 1 to the neg of sub 2 and i used both pos as the pos and neg that goes to the amp.
A voice coil changes its impedance depending on what frequency the signal is. In either case you will probably need to upgrade your vehicle's electrical system in order to accommodate such a large system. I learned even more about what people wanted in their car stereo systems. Your subwoofer work best answer: to wire two 4 ohm or gauges in mind you mono output taps of one negative — 1. Do you know the specs of the amp yet? It isn't that 2-channel amps are better for running a subwoofer, it's that often it's a more efficient use of power. Ken Nail I came to Crutchfield in 1999.
Meaning as long as one wire is on positive and the other on negative, it should be fine. I bridged the amp and connected the pos of sub 1 to the pos of channel 1 and the pos of sub 2 to the neg of channel 2 and im getting a pretty good bass. Some items that ship from the manufacturer can only be delivered to addresses within the 48 contiguous states. If you want a question answered about a system, you must identify the equipment by model numbers as well as brand names. Learn about which often feature dual voice coils in. But just wondering how i can wire the subs to the Amp at 2 ohms altogether.
Can you give me the range for single and dual voice coil subs for rms wattage? Just pretend, in the upper diagram, that the two amps share the same chassis and do not need the extra power, ground, or turn-on lead wires. What independence should i run them at? If you want a question answered about a system, you must identify each piece of gear by brand name and model number so we can get the right information to you. This is only a second vehicle for winter use mainly so not wanting to invest a lot for audio. Your amp has 2 sets of speaker output terminals, wired together inside the amp, for convenience when driving multiple subs. I plan to replace and relocate a sub to another location besides on the rear hatch.
Wire All the wires depicted in the Subwoofer Wiring Diagrams are speaker wires. The 4 farad is hooked up to my mono planet audio anarchy 4000 but the dash an head lights still flicker when my trucks runing at low rpms an the 6. How does the amp perform with different impedance loads? What should I power them with? In 2006, I finally came to my senses and got this job at Crutchfield. And when you only wire one of a dual voice coil sub's coils, you split its power-handling ability in half, threatening to burn the sub out, and increase its distortion, because the sub's motor assembly has to push around the dead weight of the disconnected coil. I installed another amp to try.
The amp is powerful enough to blow those two Rockford Fosgate subs. I haven't built a system in almost 20 years and just want to be sure I'm doing the best thing for my trucks electrical system. The disadvantage of bridging is that bridged channels can't drive impedance loads as low as they can when unbridged. Driverguru - 1600w class d digital signal wire for reference only one positive. Would this amp be enough power to run this set up or would you have another recommendation? Avoid using a mono amp here — they work best at a lower than 4 ohms.
Working in a music store in Austin, Texas, I spent a few years manufacturing, installing, repairing, and operating sound systems. Yes my subs are both active and driven by their own amplifiers. I had them wired down to 1ohm with parallel wiring and when they went all wack i wasnt bumping much harder then my old 400 watt rms system i thought. I just acquired some subs and and an amp and I don't think ill be able to utilize the full power of the subs, but I'd like to get your opinion on how nest to go about wiring. You'd get the amp's maximum output through a sub that can take it. The second speaker output terminal is there for convenience and if you hook a speaker to each terminal it would result in the two speakers being wired in parallel, cutting the total impedance in half.
What ohm should i wire at and what gauge of speaker wire should i use from amp to sub? You might want to go back to that plan. Im thinking of buying that Philips one in my original post as opposed to the cheaper black cable ones. Wanna know which ways i can wire them. These are usually set-screw connections -- loosen the screw, slip the bare wire underneath and tighten down. I have a pair of 12 inch Cerwin Vega V122Dv2 subs, dual voice coil, 450 watts rms, impedence selector for 4 or 1ohm in a sealed box.
Connecting two sets of your aim should use a y-cable, not cause problems for high power without blowing up rel mono amp; can resist that. The amp is a 2 channel said it would push 155 rms at 2 ohm vs 100 rms at 4 ohm per channel. I'm just wondering if it will pull the same resistance if it wire both parallel directly to it as it would if it wired sub 1 to sub 2 then to the amp. I worked in my high school's stage crew, running sound, lights, and a movie projector. How much power would I be drawing from each channel and what are my wiring options? It is capable of 2 ohms 1200x1 watts rms or 4 ohms 600x1 watts rms.
