    Help this Rookie...wire 4 svc's.

    Hello everybody...

    As you can see, this is my first post.....

    I know this is a lame question....but somewhere i seemed to have gotten confused.


    I would like to know how I should wire my two 12" and two 10" SVC (4ohm) Zues
    Subwoofers to my Rockford 801s 2 channel amp.

    The amp is rated at:

    2 ohm minimum In stereo
    4 ohm minimum bridged

    .................
    my box looks like: . .
    . 12 12 .
    . .
    . 10 10 .
    .................


    + - + -
    AMP is here


    thanks for any help......sorry for bothering anyone.

    Have a great day/night.

    I would run them in series then parallel to the amp. This will give you a 4 Ohm Bridged load. If you do not understand this I will work on a pic to help. It will not look good but I will get it done fast.

    Re: Help this Rookie...wire 4 svc's.

    **** that is a crappy pic. I will list them as Sub 1, 2, 3, 4. sub 1 and 2 are your 12's and 3 and 4 are your 10's. + from the amp goes to the + on sub 1 and a wire to sub 3. Take a wire run it from the - on sub 1 to the pos on sub 2. Also run a wire from the - on sub 3 to the + on sub 4. Then run a wire from the - on the amp to the - on sub 2 and a wire to the - on sub 4. I hope this helps. I am trying to find a pic to help

    Take 2 pieces of wire. twist the ends together and put them in the + terminal on the amp. 1 Piece goes to sub 1+ and the other piece goes to the + on sub 3. Then take 1 piece of wire and run it from the - on sub 1 to the + on sub 2. Take another piece of wire and run it from the - on sub 3 to the + on sub 4. Take 2 more pieces of wire twist them together and connect them to the - terminal on the amp. 1 piece will go to the - terminal on sub 2 and the other will go to the - terminal on sub 4.
