The only safe way to hook up your gear is to connect each subwoofer to a separate amplifier. The power comes into the switch which operates a single light at the end of the circuit. Also i am only running 8 gauge power and ground wire so i was thinking maybe that is my problem? I have a 160 amp alternator and plan on buying a second battery. Amplifier output An amplifier will put out more power through a low-impedance sub than it will through a high-impedance sub. Subsonic filters what should it be turned at along with the other nobs to? Four days after installation the subs blew up. This is only a second vehicle for winter use mainly so not wanting to invest a lot for audio. I hooked up the Skar sub to only one voice coil.
That amplifier isn't stable for a 1-ohm load, so that's probably what you're hearing: the amp freaking out. The cable should also have a ground wire, or a total of four wires in the cable. You could also wire the second sub to the amp directly, instead of to the other sub, and achieve the same result. What would be the best way to wire the subs to get the most out of them. I think that if you want to add that sub to your system, you should get a separate amp to run it. For wiring subwoofers, we recommend using wires of 12- to 16-gauge in size. For your installation, you would want to reverse the polarity of the two rear-facing subs.
Or does it supply each with 500w? All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and anonymous. Thanks for your time and all your tips I appreciate it. An outlet switch combo device is handy when you need both but you only have one box available. If you are running a new circuit, check the electrical code to understand this and any other updates to the required procedure. We may also collect personal data such as your name, job title, company name, address, email address and telephone number either directly from you or by combining information we collect through other sources. I am hooking up two 12 inch 4ohm dvc subs. Secondly, what makes you think your vehicle's electrical system is inadequate? The difference in impedance between your front and rear speakers will result in a volume difference - the fronts will be louder than the rears.
There are 2 loads and 2 lines with in this switch. Cuz I know my amp doesn't support 1 ohm and at 4 ohm they're really underpowered. If the amplifier is a 2-channel amp, connecting two outputs together to a sub will probably damage the amp. If you don't experience light-dimming, you won't need a capacitor. Get separate amps for your different model subs. I was thinking I would run the front channels at 4 ohms stereo and the rear at 2 ohms bridged.
Three-wire cable with a ground wire is used for this connection. Hopefully this makes sense and thank you! I was wondering which way would be more ideal to wire them together? Fixture Controlled by Two Switches: Power Through a Switch Box Two three-way switches control one light with the electric power coming through the first switch, flowing to the second switch, and then to the light fixture. Their toll-free number is on your invoice. This is a long bar with many screw terminals with existing uninsulated and green insulated ground wires terminated to it and often times will have white wires terminated to it as well. It sounds to me that your subs are wired correctly and that your amplifier might need more air space to keep cool. Two subs are better run with a mono, 1-channel amp designed to work with a wider range of impedances, having tone controls and filters specifically made to help reproduce bass - wired , or, if the amp can drive a 1-ohm load,.
You can go ahead and wire it up, though, using that diagram with all the 2s changed to 1s. Perhaps you're confused by the amp's two output terminals. Can you point me towards the best diagram for wiring up this subwoofer to my amp? Wire All the wires depicted in the Subwoofer Wiring Diagrams are speaker wires. The book says it is 1700 rms 4ohm x 1, max 3500rms 2ohm, max 5000rms at 1ohm. Does using one set of terminals affect what power I get or will using both be different? The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. Well i think my girl got sick of it and for my bday bought everything for me.
If you insist on back-wiring, insert the tip of the black wire into one of the holes nearest the dark screws and push it in as far as it will go. First question, is this set up a decent combination or should I search for a different amplifier? As for wire: the amount of current that will pass through it determines how thick it should be - thin wire resists high current flow and heats up, losing energy. For your set-up, that's exactly what you can do: wire one sub to each set of terminals. Care should be taken in selecting your dimmer switch. I think I'd need around 2400 watt amp for this, of would it be better to have two 1200 watt amps? Should I go with the 4 Ohm version of the sub? Is there a way to get a 4 ohm load? Any idea's about that or where you went to find out or how you know. That amp is not stable for a 1-ohm load.
What would you suggest here? If you are using metal boxes, the ground conductor must be attached to each box by using a threaded ground screw or provided attachment. And ive looked to see if i have a svc or dvc but cant find the info on it. How can i wire these both without having to dump a bunch of money out for another amp? To run two speakers, you need to connect one speaker to the front left channel and one speaker to the front right channel and leave the rear channels of the receiver disconnected. Or do I need to connect exactly per the diagram to one speaker then run an additional positive over to the other speaker? Most 2-channel amps can't drive loads lower than 4 ohms when bridged. 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.
