so im hookin up my AQ1200D to my Elemental design 13AV.2... the woofer is a dual 2 ohm. im not quite sure how to wire that up... also. ill be throwin 1200 watts at the thing, so i was wondering what the minimal guage wire i should use from the batt to the amp?
As a minimal size amp wire i would not go any lower then 4 gauge but i would recommend running 0. If the woofer is dual 2 ohm run both the coils in parallel. That would put you at a 1 ohm load, and believe that's where your amp will put out the most power. For the speakers i would probably run 8 gauge.
its not really "2 sets of speaker outputs" - in a regular monoblock amp its connected internally so it does not matter which + or _ u use , its just for added convenience that they put 2+ & 2_ terminals
now they are "Dual-monoblock amps" which will make a difference depending on how u connect ur speaker wires to it but thats NOT the case with ur aq1200d which is a plain ol monoblock ...
yup. typical mono amp these days offers two pair of terminals. wach pair is wired together internally so that it's easier to wire two subs in parallel to the amp. that's all. pick one pair and use them. ignore the other pair, with only one sub connected to the amp.
hooked it up yesterday... didnt seem as loud as i had expected... i wired it corectly, checked my connections. it worked for about 3 hours and one of the speaker cords came un-done so i re-did that. my amp says its getting power... connection with the sub is solid. i looked at all the fuses... and now i cant get the woofer to make ANY noise
