    **** protection light

    ok i'm running 2 audiobahn 1251T's 400 rms dual 4 ohm voice coils. i got only one of them working right now. it's running off of a 150x2 conquest amp..i know it *****. but it was free. i got that bridged, it says 2 ohms stable. so i got that running to the pos and neg on one voice coil and then running to the other. every once in a while the protection light will come on and it will cut out. what can i do with this amp to make it work for a while?

    please help
    thank you

    Re: **** protection light

    Ok I am confused here. You have 2 subs that are DVC 4 OHM and you are only using 1 VC on each sub? (Just a question)

    Even though your amp says 2 ohm stable It may not be. When it cuts out is it getting hot? I would run your speakers in series/parallel. This will give you a 4 ohm mono load on the amp. It will not make the amp work as hard (seeing it is a cheap amp)

    Take a Ohm meter and check the resistance on each Voice Coil (VC). It should read around the 4 Ohm area. If it is higher or lower you will know what you are working with. Some speakers may be set up at around 3 Ohms (but they say 4 ohm) and you would be pushing a 1 ohm load the way you have it set up. This would cause the amp to go into protect mode. TURN THE gain down some too. You may like it loud, but that amp will not push it as loud as you want. And it is putting out a lot of sub sonic distortion and you will ruin those speakers over time.

    If you are using both VC on both speakers you are not running 2 ohms. You are pushing 1 ohm. (unless you have it series/parrallel). If you want a drawing let me know and I will see about drawing a 4 Ohm MONO wireing diragram for you .

    Your amp is 2 ohm stable non bridged i would guess, bridged its 4 ohm stable. I would wire one sub to two ohms on the right and one sub to two ohms on the left channel.
