Alright. Never had a sub system before until now. Ran across a "beginners" set up on craigslist.
2 12" 4ohm rockford fosgate p2 subs 500 watt max 250 rms
1200 watt 2 channel sony xplod amp. with a built shared ported box.
Got a 4 gauge amp kit for it,wired it all up. Sounds ok.
Questions i have is about getting the most out of it. The amp goes into protection mode and shuts off once it gets so loud so either settings are off or im just asking for too much out of these subs.
Ive learned about the bass gains on the amp,I still know little to nothing about the "level 0.3v etc" setting and the low pass filter. Im starting to understand it,but meh its just going over my head.
Ive been studying wiring diagrams etc for the subs. I used my professional skills with MsPaint and made a picture of how they were wired. Not too sure if its right.
edit : it wouldnt let me post the link...wtf?
Basically its wired like this...
connectors on box that goes to sub goes to + and - as needed,then the + goes to the + on the other side of the sub,same with the -
edit : looked at crutchfields wiring diagrams. apparently this turns the subs into a 2 ohm set up.
each dvc is wired like that to the connectors that lead to the amp. Is that "good enough" or is there a better route to wire them?
