I have two 12" cvr's and a 4000w lanzar vibe286 amp. When i run the subs as of right now, I cant turn the volume up all that loud. When i driving, obviously, i can turn them up alot louder. But i still cant give them that much power without the amp going into protection mode. Should i get a new alternator so i can turn my amp up, cause its barely even on. Or are there other options.

It would be a great idea to get a high output alt...especially for future upgrades.

So would a alt. solve the problem. Cause i would rather keep the amp and put money towards and alt. rahter than putting money into another amp.

Yep, a HO alt would solve the problem.

why did you create another thread for this when you already had one going?

but from your other thread, it seems like you don't have them wired correctly, and that you just tried what seemed to work. you probably have them wired to too low of an impedence, and when you turn it up, your trying to get way more out of your amp than intended, and thats why its going into protection mode.

here's a link to a wiring tutorial.

find out exactly what voice coil configuration your subs are and make sure you have them wired correctly. if your running your amp bridged, it is probably only stable down to 4 ohm. you probably have a 2 ohm load or lower right now.

you even said yourself that you "tried to wire each sub to each channel" and "one was moving the opposite way". that just means you reversed the polarity on one, and shows that you dont quite know what your doing.

no no no. I do know what im doing. if you read that thread i said i doubled checked the pos. and neg. ends. Im not that stupid. I have my amp bridged and my subs hooked up in series right now. I just need to know if i need a different amp or a new alt.

Hey, two4fifteen, I noticed you also have a Clarion DXZ945MP? How's that working out for you?

i love it. the screen holds up great and actually stays clean, touch controls work without a hitch, the pre-outs are strong, the ADF does a great job with sq, t/a is there if you need it,i use the aux input with my sirius and mp3 player, but the p.eq has a somewhat limited amount of bands, although its excellent if you only have a few problems areas since all 3 have the entire freq. range and adjustable Q. i just wish my case didnt break for the faceplate.

how do you like yours?

I've had the same thoughts with mine, the ADF does wonders for mp3 files and basically any other media source as well! I'm also using the aux-in and am not disappointed at all with it. I've loved the touchscreen interface, especially the track selection methods; this is one of the only touchscreen units I've used with a 'slide' and 'hold' type of track selection, it's ingenious to say the least.

How did the faceplate case break? I've had the tabs that hold it shut break, but it still clicks shut adequately enough without problems.

the tabs were broken before i even got it, and the case would never click or stay shut. but thats my only real beef. that, and the limited text thats able to be displayed on the small oval in the middle. but these are very minor to me.

Cool, so you got it used? I also did, much better price, and they hold their value surprisingly well!

by the way, are you using those 8" mtx 5000's for midbass? if so, how do you like them, where do have them located in your car, and what frequency range are you limiting them to?

Ya, would a bigger battery solve my problem, and maybe a capacitor?
