  1. You are right. Can't believe I forgot about that. Gets me about 1.7ohm now which seems correct and prob is a 2ohm load. Thanks!
  2. I have 2 SVC 4ohm subwoofers wired in parallel and they show up as a 3ohm load on my multimeter. I'm aiming for a 2ohm load. I have 1 sub hooked up normally and then plugged in my 2nd sub on the terminals of the 1st sub. What could be the cause of this?
  3. I'm not sure what you mean by rubber gasket?
  4. Uhm it's 2 12 inch subs powered by 1 amp. But yes, side by side they are too wide.
  5. I have two of these subs: https://rockfordfosgate.com/products/details/r1-1x12/ I want to fit them side by side facing the back of the car but I need like 1-3mm extra space. The plastic things on the picture is what makes it not fit. What's the best option here? Do I cut 1-3mm away from one of the subs?

    Alright thanks for the help guys. I feel so scammed as they sold me this in a set. Rockford sells this sub and amp together and they're not even a right fit. Unbelievable.

    I will install those tomorrow. Turns out I have a R300X4 amp actually.This one has a bit more power https://rockfordfosgate.com/products/details/r300x4/ 150 Watts x 2 @ 4-Ohm Bridged Would it still sound decent with a 4 channel amp like this or should I just go for a better amp? I just want some nice clean bass in my car with a bit of punch. Nothing crazy.

    So I should upgrade my amp to a 2 channel more powerful one? And for the sub level, my speakers are also at 0 and they are pretty loud. I've read setup guides for these pioneers and from what I remember they recommend to leave it at 0. That was my first setup ever with the first sub and amp. I currently have the R250X4 amp with a Rockford Fosgate Prime R1-1X10. I know I should have used wire spades. That won't happen again lol.

    Oh I do have 1 sub hooked up. I just thought the amp can provide 250watt through bridged mode. These are the ratings provided on the site: 40 Watts x 4 @ 4-Ohms 60 Watts x 4 @ 2-Ohms 125 Watts x 2 @ 4-Ohms Bridged That would suck if it only provides 125watt to my sub... Think I'm going to get it checked out by an audio shop tomorrow.

    I'll try that. Appreciate it man. Also it's 125 x 2 bridged at 4ohms.

    My cousin has the same subwoofer with the 2 channel version of my amplifier and it sounds way better. I know it's not a very powerful system but it should sound better.

    So I should put my subwoofer setting at 10 (max) on my head unit? I thought this was bad practice as the head unit will amplify the sound then and may cause distortion. My amp is this one: https://rockfordfosgate.com/products/details/r250x4/ It's rated at 250watt rms and my subwoofer is 200watt rms. Shouldn't it be enough? I appreciate the help guys.

    Alright I'll change the ground and see if it changes anything. I think the amp does 250watts bridged? I know it's not the best equipment but believe me it should do more than this. Just the fact that my old subwoofer plays much better in my friends car means something is wrong with my setup.

    The subwoofer is 200watt RMS. Specs can be seen here: https://rockfordfosgate.com/products/details/r1-1x10/ . Amp is bridged and rated for 125 Watts x 2 @ 4-Ohms Bridged. My buddy his amplifier is a JVC KS-AX202. Note that I used his subwoofer and amplifier previously in my car and it didn't sound as good as his. Exact same wires etc but he has a stock head unit. Some extra things: my speaker wire from the amp to the subwoofer is pretty thin and this is my grounding point. I sanded down the metal behind that black bar thing and put the ground on the other side (so not like on the picture where it is on the front). On the other picture you can see the size of my speaker cable. I think they are 14awg.

    I've set it at 3 atm. But I also tried it with 8 and a lower gain setting. Same thing happens.
