If you are using two subs, you should either use two separate mono amps, or a two channel setup. Make sure you set the amp gain so no distortion ever plays. This statement made by another is true. However, if you're asking about the wires from the vehicle, dating it will depend on the manufacturer.
We don't use impedance matching, we use voltage bridging. Brad, In spite of its published specifications, that amplifier doesn't have enough power for one of those subs, much less two. This is only a second vehicle for winter use mainly so not wanting to invest a lot for audio. Could you possibly provide a diagram of this to help me? It seems to me that I read it is a non-standard size and is difficult to replace.
But to do that you must wire them in the high frequency inputs. Any help or links would be great! Can you site the code section? If you bought a kit it comes with an inline fuse, if you didn't, beast you need to get an inline fuse.
How can you hook up a 2 ohm amplifier to a 4 ohm sub
Current visitors New profile posts Search profile posts Billboard Trophies. Most amps are switchable to mono mode and put out more power in mono. Question ceiling speakers setup. Im going to wire the speakers parallel. Do I need an amplifier or subwoofer?
Hooking up sub with Pre/power amp combo
Hey Buck I have gone through the diagrams and understand the wiring for the most part. Getting this wrong may well overheat cables or even blow the amp itself so make sure your cables and setup are matched. The wires are not grounded properly, check to make sure the surface is clean, unpainted metal.
Just be sure to set the amp gain so no distortion ever plays. What wiring options do I have into a single Channel. As for a diagram, I can point you to our Amplifier wiring diagrams. If you want a question answered about your system, you should identify your equipment by brand names and model numbers.
- Make sure you always turn off your amp when you leave your car, it will overheat and drain your battery.
- Rafael, Please do not connect the outputs of your two amplifiers together, it could damage them.
- Would running stereo burn up the woofer?

Hook it to a fuse connected to ignition turn on, like your accessory power fuse. Then once your receiver or whatever is hooked up the computer, you need to run speaker wire from the receiver to your speakers. What happens if you hook up two subs to a mono channel amp?
How do you hook up one amp to Subs but another amp to speakers
- Just be sure to never play distortion trying to get loud bass.
- Do you have any recommendations on amps?
- This will come into play later.
- Dylan, Not knowing exactly what subwoofers you're referring to make it impossible to give advice on how to wire them together.
- Matthew, You could use each of those amplifiers to drive each one of your subs.
It will just plug into your truck and then connect color coordinated wires. Hi Buck I have been following this site for almost all of my car audio questions and I am still finding myself kind of confused if you will about something. These terms refer to two ways of routing the speaker wires to your subs to properly manage the overall impedance load.
What is the best way to completely install these subs with this amp? Or would it be bad for the amp? The speaker wire will run from the amp and will be introduced to the box via bolts through the side of the box.
Tim's advice doesn't sound right to me. If you have two watt subwoofers for your vehicle then what size amp do you need? Why buy from an authorized dealer? Just remember that excessive distortion will kill a speaker in fairly short order.
Would there be sufficient power? Hopefully this makes sense and thank you! Manuel, Your subs probably blew because they were being driven with twice their rated power. Erasmus, Having extra headroom by using a more powerful amplifier is always good, allowing the amplifier to play cleaner, cooler, and with less strain. Josh, It would be better if you had identified your gear by make and model number, so I could give accurate advice.
Even a high-output alternator, beefed-up wiring, and a second battery might not be enough to support this monster of a system. If i get one amp how close can i get to. The amplifier has no effect on a sub's impedance.
This Subline works, of course on T-Amps, as well as other amps. And if so, how to calculate the impedance? Richard, If you want a question answered about a system, you must identify the equipment by brand names and model numbers.
Connecting more can seriously damage the amplifier. Figure out where you're going to place the amp, put the beginning of your power red wire there and give it about a foot of wire extra, then begin to hide and run the power wire to under the hood. Is this even possible and if so, how?
If you don't have a mic jack on your amp, your out of luck. The only time you should see a voltage reading is if you're measuring from a battery positive source and ground. Make sure that you use cables with the correct resistance or impedance for your setup. Make sure you know how to reactivate your radio before doing this, anatomy grey's if your radio has a security system.
