Default Re: gain setting tutorial 2010

So if the saz 3500 d is already internally paralleled and I series parallel my 3 subs to the the amp will this effect the performance? I'm experiencing my amp going into protective mode at high volume and can't figure out why? I don't have all the meters to check it to the tee like you guys just basic stuff. Now all the subs are wired to 1.3 ohms and showing 2.3 at the amp and I have 14.3 volts at idle and on less than 12v when its turned up. Gain is at about quarter or slightly above no Bassboost no Phase and LPF at quarter and subsonic at quarter.

that should be a nominal 1.33, should read a little lower on the amp. maybe 1-1.1
you definitely have it wired wrong if its reading 2.3

Do you have any suggestions? I have the + from one coil to the - on the other side of the basket then the 2 other on to the other sub and so on.

+ to - from one coil to the other. the other + and - from each sub should be wired to the amp directly(or one to the amp and the other two to the next sub)

it should be reading a lot lower than 2 if its done right

put your dmm probes together and see your resistance , then subtract that from what your getting.. mine is like 1.3 , worth checking
