Will post a pic of the sub 2moro when i remove it to check the wiring done. I'm sure the sub has four input connections.

They are working fine now. Issiue with the amp is no longer there. Anyways, its better i get it checked.

p.s.: amps not overheating now after I tuned the amp last eve. This info was conveyed to me my karthik just now. I had to rush back last eve after I tuned teh amp.

B&T; what sub would it be frm pix? i wasnt with him during install and hence need info abt sub.

and if I am right the amp is stable at 800W @ 2ohm and 400W @ 4ohm
Wow, if it isn't the AW122N, then it sure as hell has to be the AW1200N. That's the only other sub from the various lines which is a 12" and has a basket as seen in the pic, and a paper cone. And that guy is a dual 4-ohm sub.

So, if you connected all 4 voice coils (since you have 2 subs) in parallel to the 8000s output, that amp is prolly calling 911 right now. If you connected only one coil each from the subs to the amp, it's operating at rated output at 2 ohms i.e. 800W rms, but all of the brunt is being borne by just half of each subwoofer (since the rated power handling of the sub is 700Wrms, it is safe to assume that each coil is designed to handle a max of 350W rms thermally, so you're 50 watts over rated power per operational coil). Besides these two, the only load you could get using 4 coils will be 4 ohms, and the amp wouldn't have any hassle driving the subs, except that that's too little power for two big guys like that, i.e. 200 watts per sub. You guys have some figuring out to do.

Lol, that's not 4 inputs. There are 2 input lugs each for the positive and the negative.




The two terminals on the right are both positive and connect to the same coil internally. Likewise for the two terminal on the left, which are the negatives. This option is offered if you want to wire the sub with 2 smaller gauge speaker wires rather than one of a larger gauge, that's it. If you take them to be seperate voice coils and connect them to different channels of amplifiers, that'll be like off-season Diwali. You're lucky you have a mono amp, so you can't try that option.

And hope the amps seeing a 2ohm load rather than a 8ohm load. I am afraid of all installer unless I am with them when they do it or I get to got the wiring part.

Get a strap-on for the boot so that it does'nt fly away with bass!

Damp each part as needed. Use your ears, fingers and whatsoever (I am not being obscene here) to feel the unwanted sounds and Just eliminate it. Also seal your boot door insides.

And after you're done with the damping check the weight increase it does to the car and get some extra engine mods to solve all the performance loss. LOL!!!

I've got that covered

Hope the boot doesn't become too heavy, if so i'll think about hydraulics
