Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to car audio, and I have some questions on mono amps and subs.
I just purchased 2 10 inch subs. They are the Polk Audio DB 1042 SVC. It's a 4-ohm sub with single voice coils. I also purchased a sealed box for these subs. (https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_1747.html)
The box has 2 separate spots on the back for connections. One on the left and one on the right. I also have this amp. (https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_93307.html) It's a 750 rms class d 2 ohm (stable) mono amp. I also purchased an 8 gauge amp wiring kit.
Now, I know how to wire the ground, power, and remote turn on. That's a breeze for me. It's wiring the sub to the amp that I'm not good with. With my system I have, shown above, could someone give me specific instructions on how to first, connect the subs to the outputs on the enclosure? In other words, how to wire the back of the subs to the enclosure before screwing in the subs. And 2nd, how to wire the amp to those sub outputs correctly.
Hi people, first post here and I'm building my first system. I will be running an Orion XTR-2500.1Dz amp powering an HCCA 12" black coil sub. I've currently got a 150a alternator on the stock electrical in my Mk7 transit sport. My question is what alternator/battery combo will I need. The amp is rated at 2500w RMS @1Ω though it has been bench tested here : https://youtu.be/DMBV0dVAtUo at 6744w Rms (I don't know wether to believe that or not). Can anybody help me make the calculations. Thanks, Gaz.

ok I'm trying 2 find the best way 2 wire my 2 diferant amps and 2 different subs from my reciever
I have a Kenwood Kdc-302 which has 3 RCA outs but one is Sub then Front and Rear, I assume the Sub-Out puts out differant audio because on rear-out I can turn my gain up but when I plug it to sub-out I have 2 turn it down or it rattles. I then have a 500k capacitor to a 12" Pioneer 1000w peak power amp its bridged putting 500rms to a 1300w peak power pioneer sub I think the rms is around 350w. Then I have a 600w PowerBass Amp (I cant find the rms rating on this amp but it's a 4 omls when bridged) its run to a 12" MTX Thunder6000 550w peak 260w rms sub in a ported box. Both amps have there own power straight 2 battery (the 1000w has a capacitor on its powerwire) and both amps and the capacitor have there own ground wires and all 3 are ran 2 the same location
MY QUESTION IS: What is the best way 2 wire the RCA audio from the head unit because I have 3 options that iv thought of?
A) Run Sub-Out RCA 2 one amp and a RCA from Rear-Out 2 the second amp, which is how iv had it for a while but I cant controle both subs from my reciever as well or @ the same time or the LPF on rear @ all. (but it does help 2 set them differently) (this is how they have been till 2day)
B) Run Sub-out 2 the 600w Powerbass which has a RCA-Out that I can run 2 the 1000w Pioneer. (will I have problems like this? it being the smaller amp 2 the larger one?)
C) Run Sub-Out RCA 2 a RCA Splitter and 2 each amp... (which is how I just set them up)
any other opinions or recommendations will be appreciated.
Idk if the capacitor helps my system or not, the light on the amp dims still when turned up verry loud. and the pioneer seems 2 have a rattle on hard hits, idk if its cause the box isnt sealed properly or because the rms is a little higher on the amp..?
Alright so If you cut a piece of cardboard to the same shape as the mounting bracket and u fit it into the rear view mirror after you've unscrewed it u can shove it back on to the metal plate and that will help eliminate the tilt.
