    Issues with US Amps 2000X and Alpine Type X Sub

    Hey guys,

    Wondering if you could help me out here. I recently acquired a US Amps 2000x (which i think is still blown after being repaired.. but that's another story)

    I also have a single 12" Alpine Type-X Driver which is a Dual 4ohm Sub.

    Here are some stats for the 2000X Amp.

    First off, it's a 2-channel amp.

    Power per channel:
    4ohms: 500W
    2ohms: 1000W

    Bridged Power:
    8ohms: 1000W
    4ohms: 2000W

    Now, i would like my sub to take 1000W RMS from this amp. I'm confused as to how to hook this up.

    Currently, I have the Driver bridged in parallel (+ to + and - to - )
    It is then hooked up to the - and + on one of the amp channels. However, the driver doesn't seem to be getting much power.

    Any ideas?

    wire it like this

    and since you said the amp is probably blown, that would be why it isnt getting much power.

    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.
