    ok, more assistance

    I messed with the speaker wiring a little on my setup. The amp is a AP10001D:
    1000W Monoblock Power AmplifierRemote Bass Control Included1 Ohm load stableBass Boost 0-12dBOverheat protectionVariable subsonic filterDistortions: < 0.2% thdSignal-to-Noise ratio: 70dbBuilt-in variable phase shiftInput level: 0.2-5vBass boostVariable low pass electronic crossoverLow pass filterOverload protectionBuilt In Variable 12 dB/ Octave CrossoverMOSFET Power Supply 3 Way ProtectionSubsonic filterRMS Power: 300 x 1 RMS @ 4 Ohm 700 x 1 RMS @ 2 Ohm 1000 x 1 RMS @ 1 OhmIn Line Fuse Included1 Year manufacturer's warranty
    The subs are CVR10s (2) dvc 4 ohm 400-800 watts. If I hook them up at 1 ohm, the amp goes into protection mode, at 2 ohms it does fine, but that's only 700 watts so 350 to each and thus not enough. Thoughts?

    How are you hooking up 2 DVC 4 ohm subs to get a final load of 2 ohm? Not possible.... You'll get either a 1 ohm load or a 4 ohm load. Not 2.

    Well I'm not sure what the actual impedance is haha, but I ran positive to positive (same with negatives) on each sub, what load would that be?

    All voice coils in parallel would get you to a final 1 ohm load.

    Well I did that at first and the amp went into protection mode, I meant the positives and negatives wired together meaning both voice coils on each seperate sub

    Yup. You've got them wired "parallel". The other way would be in series positive to negative, etc. and that would be "series". How To - Car Stereo - Series vs. Parallel Wiring

    Re: ok, more assistance

    You take the positive to the positive and negative to the negative on the sub and out. Do the same with the other sub. Now take the 2 positives you have and put them together into the amp. Then take the 2 negatives you have, put them together and into the amp. This is going to give you a final 1 ohm load at the amplifier. Your amp shouldn't be going into protect mode unless you have something else as an issue.....

    nvm.... Didn't see Skylines diagram. Lol!

    Re: ok, more assistance

    Yea I know how to wire them to drop it to 1 ohm, my question is why is the amp going into protection mode at 1 ohm when it's 1 ohm stable at 1000 watts
