Would running in stereo make the amp run hotter? If you bought your gear at Crutchfield, you could call Tech Support for free help troubleshooting your system. The sub's built-in amplifier has been optimized to run that particular Mackie driver, so I recommend contacting Mackie tech support in order to get a replacement. You should wire that equipment together. Im not sure what ohm the subs are as they are not listed on them but i believe they are the top of rockwood product line. If you do hook your amp up to the one-ohm setup, it will probably overheat or go into protect mode.
Robert, There are some things to consider first. You can find a glossary of terms below the interactive module. Dual-voice has multiple wiring options such as parallel, series and independent wiring. Ohms The impedance of a subwoofer coil is expressed in ohms. You'd get more output, however, if you wired it as a. Im doing this because im reading it is harder to wires and supply a odd number of 12's on one amp. Some amplifiers are designed with an unregulated power supply — these amps are favored by mobile audio competitors for their superior performance.
Perhaps can help you visualize what you will need to do to get your system up and running. I have only tried it a few minutes. That's dependent on how loud an amp plays into its impedance load. If you want a question answered about a system, you must identify the gear by model numbers as well as brand names. Thats the last thing I need happening to mine. If that lack of power is not an issue, you can wire them together. Or, use one positive and one negative amp terminal for the pair of subs, it doesn't matter which.
Says it can put out 1 x 800 4 Ohms, 1 x 1600 2 Ohms, 1 x 3200 watts 1 Ohm. If your amp and sub have similar power ratings, you can wire them together. If that is the case, a capacitor may fix that issue. The best you could do would be to wire each voice coil to a separate channel of the amp. They had been previously hooked up to an older two-channel amp not in bridged mode , which has since broken. What the specs do not show, and would if the amp could, is the amp's capabilities at 1 ohm per channel or at 2 ohms when bridged.
How would be the best way to connect the 2 subs to the amp? All these are going into an alpine optimized floor display model dual 10 ported box - which will share a common space between the drivers no internal division. Also wondering if I can just run cables to the two terminals on the box from the 4 pins on the amp to parallel the subs without additional wiring. If you've purchased an enclosure which is internally wired in an unknown configuration, you should open it up and verify all the connections before wiring the sub to an amplifier. I listed all the amps i was looking at because i am not sure which will be the best bang for my buck. The sub will be wired in parallel to achieve this impedance ohm. Just received them today and I actually received 2 single 4 ohm, and 1 Dual 2 ohm. Your mono, 1-channel amp has 2 sets of speaker output terminals, wired together inside the amp, for convenience, and if you hook a sub to each terminal it would result in the two subs being wired in parallel, cutting the total impedance in half.
They are going into a Chevy Impala. If you want a question answered about a system, you must identify the gear by brand names and model numbers. From everything I've read on this site, this should work just fine, if not well, correct? I have a ford ranger so it limits the size of my sub choices any recommendations would be a plus on subwoofers in your opinion. How should i wire these for the best output? Since an amplifier produces more wattage at a lower impedance, the parallel connection ensures you'll get the most output from your amp. Are the subs' power-handling ratings high enough to survive that amp's output? These are wired together internally and provide a handy way to parallel wire a couple of subs to the amp. But, a better plan of action would be for you to take your gear to a car audio installer and see if they'll test it or install it for you.
That way the two voice coils will play the same thing at the same time. The amp is really overpowering the speakers, so I purchased one 10 sub to fit on my rear tailgate to get the bottom end I need. You'd get the amp's maximum output through a sub that can take it. Can I just wire each speaker as a 1ohm since they have dvc and connect each speaker under the same input on the amp? Are the tweeters part of a component system using a passive crossover? However it has 2 speaker connections which means i can connect both subwoofers directly too it potentialy, i am trying to follow this guide to do this but because the amp has 2 speaker connecions do i follow the 2 channel connection guide or the mono amp connection guide? That's a recipe for blowing subwoofers. As you increase the resistance please understand the power output of the amplifier is reduced a bit depending on the amount of the increase of resistance.
I need to purchase two woofers for this system. Would you run two dvc 4ohms to get 2. If this is the case I should purchase the exact same subwoofer to ensure the resistance is exactly the same or if there is a difference of even. Whether a 2-channel amp plays in stereo or bridged mode has no bearing on its or a sub's running temperature. Im trying to get my system planned out before I hook up all the gear. So would the best way to go about it just to be to hook up a single voicecoil to each terminal for a 2ohm load? How can i wire these both without having to dump a bunch of money out for another amp? Which should put out maybe 7000 Rms? If that isn't enough loud bass for you, you can always step up to a higher-powered amplifier, say a 400- or 500-watt model. These things are monsters, I'm having trouble finding an amp that can power these things without buying something that has way to much power.
I had hooked everything up and the sub kept cutting out. I also picked up a pair 2 matching subs infinity Kappa 100. If you're attempting to put together a system for an office or business, you'll get better advice from. For wiring subwoofers, we recommend using wires of 12- to 16-gauge in size. I am tight on money and trying my best to work with what I can afford. This does not mean that the receiver's amplified outputs can be bridged together - they can't. And recent got a deck for a ford ranger.
