Hello juanelreypla,

If your CVR's have dual 2 ohm voice coils, they can only be wired for 0.5 ohm, 2 ohm, or 8 ohm final loads.

http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/woofer_wizard.asp?submitted=true&woofer_qty=2&woofer_imp=3

If they have dual 4 ohm voice coils, they can be wired to a final load of 1 ohm. Wire the voice coils in parallel and then parallel both subs. Like the diagram in Wiring Option #1 shown here.

SOURCE: 15 cvr 4ohm trying to drop to 1 ohm

Are these Dual Voicecoil Subwoofers? Are there 4 terminals on each sub for wires?

If they are Dual 4 ohm voicecoil subwoofers
- connect both + on subwoofer 1
- connect both - on subwoofer 2
- connect both + on subwoofer 2
- connect both - on subwoofer 1

This will give you a 2 ohm STEREO load.
To get a 1 ohm MONO load...
now connect only one of the + on EACH sub to the + on the amplifier.
and the - on EACH sub to the - on the amplifier.
You now have a 1 ohm mono load.


If your speakers are 4ohm single voicecoils (one pair of terminals) the lowest impedence possible is 2 ohms.

This is wired in the same fashion. Both + on the subwoofers to the + on the amp, and both - on the subwoofers to the - on the amp.

If they are 4 ohm single voice coil subs, just connect all the negatives together and then all the positives together. If they are DUAL vc's then need more info.

Are your subwoofers wired in series or parallel? Check your connections, if everything is ok, the problem is with your amplifier. It might have a blown capacitor inside or its not really a 1ohm stable amplifier. Have it repaired if thats the case.

I have 2 12 inch kickers cvr and i have the rockfordfosgate g15002 hooked up and briged and it keeps cutting off


This is usually due to wiring the subwoofers to the wrong Ohm load. Normally those amps are rated at a 4 Ohm load. It sounds to me like they are wired down to a 2 Ohm load and bridged. It's a protection situation for the amp. If you have a multimeter, disconnect the woofers from the amp. Next, hook the meter up to the subwoofers where the wire or wires are coming out of the box. If you can give more information on the woofers, I can give you a better idea on what the numbers that you should see. It depends on if they are dual 2 or 4 Ohm woofers.

http://www.colomar.com/Shavano/dvc_spkr_wiring.html

Use the above site for several wiring schematics on dual voice coil speaker hookups. It will show how to wire for different impedance.
Also, I think the CVR 12's come in 2 ohm and 4 ohm impedance. See if you can check yours to determine which you have....

Amp burning speakers.


one of the channels your using may be burned out or there is sum wire touching inside the amp so take the cover off and make sure nuthn is touching and see if sumthn is burnt and also try using a different channel on the sub

How to wire a kicker 15 cvr


175W x 2 @ 2 ohms
350W x 1 @ 4 ohm
Your amplifier is not stable @ 2 ohm bridged. So you will have to wire them independantly on each channel.
+/- on sub to +/- on L channel
+/- on sub to +/- on R channel
Wiring the subwoofers in paallel will result in a 2 ohm load, which your amplifier is not rated to do. Doing so will cause heat buildup, and damage to the amplifier.

How to hook up 2 10 inch speakers


For best results the output resistance of the amplifier must equal the combined resistance of the speakers. So if the amps says 8 ohms and you have two 4 ohm speakers you put them is series or if the amps says 4ohms and you have two 8 ohm speakers put them in series. If it says 4ohm and you have two 4 ohm speakers best to use only one. It Depends on the output resistance of the amps. It is usually written at the terminals where the speakers are connected.
