# Wiring Two Subs To One Amp

**The rest is history.**

**Wiring two subs to one amp**.
Also be sure to cluster the LX18s together either side by side standing or bottoms together laying down.
One Dual 2-ohm Sub, 1 ohm, Mono Amp, See.
In series= amp positive to woofer one's positive, woofer one's negative to woofer two's posative, woofer two's negative to the amps negative.
4 ohm mono is equivalent to 2 Ohm.

Colin, Two DVC 4-ohm subs can get wired together to form a one-ohm load, a 4-ohm load, or a 16-ohm load. Check the back of the speaker unit or box to look for the number of ohms listed. Wire both coils in series for an 8-ohm impedance, and then wire two 8-ohm subs together in parallel for 4-ohm total impedance (perfect for most 2-channel amps bridged to mono operation). You wont need another whole new wire.

Can you hook up two subwoofers to a mono amp. He had one channel running to each of 2 subs, and the t If your subs are 4ohms, this will give an 8ohm load instead of 2 ohms, and will require less juice from the battery. One of these and your mono amp together in a system will require a dual 4-gauge (5.19 mm diameter) amp wiring kit with about 100-A fusing, like Crutchfield's CKD4 dual wiring kit.

When you connect 2 subs together and then connect one of them to the amp, electrically this is wiring them in parallel. So if you have two 4 ohms subs wired in parallel, the system would have an effective impedance of 4 ohms divided by 2 subs for a total impedance of 2 ohms presented to the amp. Running 2 subs off it bridged mono will get you the most output. Series wiring lets you configure multiple woofers to one amplifier at an acceptable impedance.

You can get a distribution block, and it'll split the power wire so you can have 2 4ga wires. One Single Voice Coil Speaker. Two terminals (+ and -) on the speaker and two leads from the amp, also conveniently labeled + and -. Two subs up an amplifier, you'll need only a set of speakers.

Wiring Diagrams for 1 Subwoofers One Dual 2-ohm Sub, 4 ohm, Mono Amp, See Diagram. With subwoofers rated at equal impedances, the system impedance is equal to the impedance of one sub voice coil divided by the number of subs. If you need to connect just 2 pair of speakers to a HiFi stereo amplifier (that is, 2 speakers to 1 amp), see my article on How to connect 2 speakers to 1 amplifier. You can wire each sub's voice coils in parallel and then wire the subs together in series to get a 2 ohm load to your amplifier.

They show a typical single channel wiring scheme. Your amp should have an output on it for RCA cables. But if you are wiring multiple subwoofers to a single amplifier, then calculating the total effective Subwoofer Parallel Wiring Diagram Amps can generally be safely wired at 4 or 2 ohms and some even at 1 ohm depending on. Also, you could wire your subs in series rather than paralell.

The only way i can see you hooking this up, is wire the DVC subs each in SERIES, and then wire them to the amp in PARALLEL, so that you have two subs wired to a SINGLE 4 ohm channel, getting 200 watts RMS.. Put one set from output of one amp to the input of the other amp. Connecting the two voice coils of each driver in series (+ to -) and the drivers themselves in parallel (+ to +, etc.) will result in the following impedances: This would be great for a One Ohm stable amp, but many car stereo power amps can not drive a one ohm load.

If you wish to wire them in series, run a single wire from the negative terminal of the first sub to the positive terminal of the second sub. Wiring 3 subs to 2 channel amp - Hey guys, I'm not a huge car audio guy, I'd much rather spend time under the hood. Then, check the back of the amp to find its impedance range. It just doesn’t get any easier than this:

However, I recently bought a sub/amp setup from a friend for next to nothing and I'm not very confident in how he had it set up. Two Dual Voice Coil Speakers in Series / Parallel. So it depends how you configure your subs and what your amp is rated at. Hey guys i have a question regarding hooking up 2 subs to a mono block amp, ill try to explain the best i can but it confueses me.

If you had gotten the 2ohm voice coil subs, if there were any offered, you could have had the two subs at a single 2 ohm load to the amp.. In this case, stick with Sunfire or MartinLogan subs if possible, but the systems can adapt any subwoofer with RCA line inputs into a wireless sub. Hook one to each amp. Without knowing precisely what subs you're referring to, we can't help you with wiring or amp advice.

Each amp has two sets of speaker output terminals, wired together inside the amp, for convenience, and if you hook a speaker to each terminal it would result in the two. The subs total impeadance has to equal the amps lowest impeadance to get max power. If the sum of both speaker's impedance is within the range of the amp's, then they can be connected. So let’s look at the various ways of wiring at least 4 pairs of speakers to one HiFi amplifier.

Well your amp can do 1700 watts at 2 ohms or 1200 watts at 4 ohms. You can add much subwoofers to the mono amp, but it just has to be configured right. Sonic Electronix has spent many months creating and perfecting a subwoofer amplifier wiring diagram to take all of the guess work out of configuring your audio system. The following diagrams are the most popular wiring configurations when using Dual Voice Coil woofers.

You can wire two amplifiers, or even multiple amps, in one car audio system, but it takes some extra planning. Dual Voice Coil Wiring Options. You could also wire each sub's voice coils in series and then wire the subs together in series again to get an 8 ohm load. Recently i hooked up a friends amp that was a mono block with 2 inputs for speaker wires (2 + and 2-) he had 2 4 ohm DVC subs.I followed the 12 volt subwoofer wiring diagram that said to hook the 2 subs up together in parallel to get a 1 ohm load.

In fact that is one of the most asked questions in the car audio field. The manufacturer instruction manual will explain how to hook up multiple subs. Two DVC drivers with Voice Coils in Series / Parallel. With two subs, this is a great way to get the pounding bass you're looking for.

This is not surprising however, because Ohms Law is just not something the average person could derive. Can get a set that's not very long either so there wont be a big mess of wires. Four 4 ohm subs wired series/parallel as above diagram, will give a single 4 ohm load and can easily be driven by any power amp. Your amp doesn't really match your subs perfectly..
