Yo...I got 2 Kicker CVRs 12" 2005 4 Ohm Model
Ok, I wired my speakers up to be 4 ohm

I got a Kenwood KAC-7252 amp
Its bridgeable

I bridged the speakers on the amp
2 on 1 positive
2 on 1 negative

For some reason it keeps blowing the fuses
Now on the kickers there're 2 dots on a negative
and positive. and the other 2 there isnt any dots

I wired the 2 dotless toghter
and wired the positive dot to the negative dot on the other speaker & Vice versa the negative on the other speaker.

Fuses keep blowing.
The Fuse that blows is a 40a fuse..not the fuse from amp kit to the battery

Know what the problem is?

hm. not really sure how you've got your wiring.

check it here: http://www.audiobahn.com/frame2004.html

Hate to use an audiobahn site, but their wiring calculator is helpful.

what did you mean by "I bridged the speakers on the amp
2 on 1 positive
2 on 1 negative" The speakers are hooked up correctly.

well...What I mean by that is

On the amp it has bridge on there

And since the wire comes in doubles
(negative and positive)

I got the positives hooked up to the amp on 1 terminal & the negatives hooked up to 1 terminal on the amp

ok IC. the only problem i can think of is the amp being short circuited.

But how can it...And its 4 Ohm Bridgeable
and I got the speakers wired at 4 Ohms

It blows fuses like crazy.

Do you think the amp is getting to much power put to it

or does the speakers need to be re wired a different way

Or should I wire 1 voice coil to the other voice coil?

Like (1 with a dot, to 1 without a dot)?

It looks like about a 4 gauge. Thats good. I just read the kicker manual and it said that the first vc should be connected to the second vc like you said.

There shouldn't be two positives and two negatives to hook up.
There should be on positive and one negative wire coming from the box.

No don't cut the wire, just twist the two wires to make one wire.

Thanks that helped...Its working good now
It sounds good...But the sound doesnt travel far tho...Is there anyway to make the bass deaper so I could hear it from more further away

Is there anyway else, besides a different box?

You don't want to be "heard." You want to keep the bass inside the car by using edead or something in the trunk. Then you could let your windows down if you want to be heard. Also make sure the speakers are wired in phase.
