Hello. I recently picked up this little setup, the cadence 1000.2 with a skar 1200 12 inch and I want to know how to wire it best. The sub has DVC at 4ohms and the amp has a bridged 4 ohm output. How should I wire it? Thanks for your time. (Sorry but I’m a noob lol)

Your best option with the equipment you have is to wire the coils in series and bridge the amplifier at a 8 ohm load.
Unfortunately that is only going to get you 130 watts rms.

Awesome. Thanks. That might’ve been how it was when I got it but I’ll check. It performs pretty well for what it is in my opinion. Thanks again.

Another F-Body guy on here! Nice to see! I had an 87 T/A - LB9 with a T-5 back in the day. Nice looking setup as well! If I can ever find another clean 3rd Gen I'll probably pick it up for nostalgia's sake.
My 83 is an Indy Pace Car this is my 4th gen Z28 it’s a 93 ...I also have a 2nd Gen Z/28 and TA in my collection.

Sounds like quite the collection! Nice stuff! Once I move out of Cali I'll find myself a much larger home to fit more than what I already have!

After flipping my laptop upside down, looks like a helluva setup! Quite an eclectic collection you have there. I can see what looks to be a 77 T/A?, a late 70's 911? First gen Talon/Eclipse, 2006ish Mustang and two more I can't make out. Soon enough my daughter will graduate high school and I'll be able to get some land in a real state.

Yep an 89 . I took 2nd at USACi World Finals in a silver 89 Probe in 1991 in McKinney Texas
I had two Rockford pro series ($380 each) 12's on a Nakamichi pa-400m. Nakamichi EC200H crossover. Rockford 5-1/4" in the doors with tweeters mounted behind the A/C vents. 5-1/4" two way in the rear. Sony AM//FM/CD with a sony XK-8d cassette player and a Rockford pa1-hd pre-amp. The mid/highs amp was a Rockford 150 hd. The sub box weighed 220 lbs. 1" medite separate ported chambers. $5,500 sounded good, but CD skipped.

I was running all Lanzar in 91 6 LN 12s .. 8” free airs in the rear panels .. 6.5s in the doors but the windows would fit the magnet if I rolled it down all the way ...I had tweeters mounted in my vents in each doors and a set behind the rear view mirror with a off brand sealed back mid hid inside the center vents . For Amps I was running two PPI made MTX red terminator 225s and headunit was a Pioneer DEX M400 Am fm controller with a Pioneer M40 changer mounted to the console with custom carpeted cover to match interior eq was simple Pioneer DEQ 6500 I believe .. I’d run 3 12s in SQ and switch highs amp to other 3 12s for SPL .
