hook up 2 subs to a monoblock amp

How do I hook up two subs to a mono amp?

By wiring the two subs in parallel (see the diagram) youll show a 2-ohm impedance to the amp. Mono amps are built for just this kind of situation, so youll get maximum power output from your amp investment. Check the diagram below for how to hook it up. Two 4-ohm SVC subs — a great place to use a mono amp. Wiring flexibility is the key here.

Can you use gain on a mono block AMP?

If the amp is a mono block then yes. There are two sets of terminals on the amp for added convenience. I use gain as a volume control. Its the Audioque 2200. Yes is mono and the second terminal isnt for a second channel only so you have more room to connect wires.

How to wire up two subwoofers in series?

You can wire each subs voice coils in parallel and then wire the subs together in series to get a 2 ohm load to your amplifier. You could also wire each subs voice coils in series and then wire the subs together in series again to get an 8 ohm load.

What size subwoofer do I need for a 2 channel amp?

A single 4-ohm SVC sub, connected to a bridged 2-channel amp. Dont be confused about dual voice coil (DVC) subs — having two voice coils simply gives you more ways to hook them up.

How to connect a subwoofer to an amplifier?

There are a few ways that one can expect to connect a subwoofer to an amplifier, receiver, or processor (also known as a home theater receiver). The most common method is done by connecting the subwoofer to the SUB OUT or LFE output of a receiver/amplifier. But you might also come across a subwoofer that uses stereo RCA or speaker wire connections.

Can you use gain on a mono block AMP?

If the amp is a mono block then yes. There are two sets of terminals on the amp for added convenience. I use gain as a volume control. Its the Audioque 2200. Yes is mono and the second terminal isnt for a second channel only so you have more room to connect wires.

Can I wire a subwoofer to a second channel directly?

Yes is mono and the second terminal isnt for a second channel only so you have more room to connect wires. Im 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.

How do you wire a speaker to an amp?

Where the picture shows the wires going to the amp, you CAN have one speaker terminal in the box and take all 4 wires to it, then wire it to the amp. Best way though is to have a terminal for each speaker, or even each coil. I assume the box already has a terminal on it?

Need to wire a dual voice coil subwoofer in series? First, connect the positive lead from Voice Coil 1 to the positive speaker output from your amplifier. Next, connect the negative lead from Voice Coil 1 to the positive lead on Voice Coil 2. Finally, connect the negative lead from Voice Coil 2 to the negative output of the amplifier.

How do you wire your own subwoofers?

What size amplifier do I need for my subwoofer?

Because each subwoofer runs at 400 watts RMS, we need to find an amplifier that runs at around 800 watts RMS. Let’s look at a Monoblock, or single channel amplifier. The Rockford Fosgate R750-1D monoblock amplifier puts out 750 watts at 1 ohm at one channel. While it is not exactly 800 watts, we do not have to be perfect.

How many channels do I need for two subwoofers?

The chart is based on a one channel amplifier wiring setup. If you have two subwoofers, it assumes you are wiring them to a single channel. If you have two subwoofers and two channels, you would look at the “1 Sub” section, because each sub gets its own channel.

How to connect a subwoofer to a 2 channel stereo amplifier?

We have two different ways to connect a subwoofer output to a 2-channel stereo amplifier. We will describe both. First of all, figure out all the connecting ports (input and output) of both of the devices. Find out the speaker wire that’s given with either the sub or the speaker. Connect two of these using that speaker wire.

What size subs do I need for a 500 watt amp?

Let’s say you choose to maximize the amp’s potential and want the system to put out 500 watts RMS. This means your subs have to be wired to form a total impedance of 2 ohms. Two subs on a 500 watts RMS amp will want about 250 watts RMS each. So you’ll look for subs each rated for 250 watts RMS or more.
