    Help with wiring JBL BP1200.1

    well, i just got my amp and i'm waiting on the subs. I am going to use it to power 2 dual voice coil subs. for those of you who don't know, this is a one channel amp but it has 2 sets of rca inputs. a front left and right, and a rear left and right. i am wanting to wire the subs in parrallel and bring them to a 2 ohm load. how will i do this? My head unit is panasonic CQ-DFX701U, it has sub wooferouts (1 pair), preout rear, preout front, AUX input, and a cd changer input. those are all in rca form. It has regular wires for the components.

    thanks,
    matt

    first thing... how many ohms is each voice coil? that will determine how they will be wired to the amp. and can they handle 600w rms each?

    the subs have dual 4 ohm voice coils and handle 500 watts rms.

    thanks,

    in that case... i think you would only be able to achieve either a 4 or 1 ohm load with those subs. i dont think that amp can handle a 1 ohm load so you would have to wire it at 4ohms which would put out 600w total or 300w RMS to each sub. to achieve a 2 ohm load you would need either two 8ohm DVC subs or two 4ohm SVC subs.



    good luck and good listening!

    All you have to do is get 2 Y adaptors for your rca's from your sub output on your headunit so that you all rca inputs on the amp conected. Then just wire your subs in parallel, the 1200.1 is stable at 1 ohm no problem, says so right in the manual. enjoy

    dr. no, so i will need to have wires coming from both "speaker outputs"? if so, can you make a diagram of how to wire them in parallel for me?

    thanks,
    matt
