    What type of wiring will make my sub louder?

    I have a JL Audio 12w1v2-4 running off of a Rockford Fosgate P300-1. Right now, i have positive to positive, negative to negative. On the amp, the wires are bridged. What can i switch around and move to make the sub louder and have more power? Thanks in advance!!!

    Well I mean, it might just be time for a new amp, or possibly a new box if it's a prefab box. What gauge wires are you running though?

    Your sub is a single voice coil, you don't really have wiring options lol, and that amp only does 150 RMS @ 4 ohms.

    If you wanna get louder, I suggest upgrading your equipment.



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None

    Re: What type of wiring will make my sub louder?

    I just build the box myself in the past few days actually. I did a great job and it sounds VERY good. Its a sealed box, made of 3/4 inch MDF wood. The power wire is 4 gauge i think (its pretty big), and the wire from the sub to the amp is pretty small (ive heard that it doesnt matter how big or small it is).

    I figured i would have to do some upgrading lol. Thanks for the reply!
