    Wire Run .. Why?

    What's the disadvantages of running your power wire through the firewall? I already have a 4ga run that's keeping me from dropping volts, but want to make the run of 1/0 I have. I will obviously need to drill a bigger hole if I use the previous hole, and I'd prefer that over running under the car, but what are the advantages and disadvantages? The firewall is not as easily accessible as under a rear seat I am guessing.

    Verfication of wiring

    Seems to be hard for me to find wiring diagrams for my setup. I have a single DVC 1 ohm sub, and a 2 ohm mono channel amp. Right now it's wired at .5 ohm and the amp or sub is cutting out at around 3/5 way up, not sure if it's the subs or the amp because the protect light does not come on, but it acts as if it goes into protect. I decided to wire to over 2 ohms. This would be wired from amp + to sub + amp - to sub - sub + to - for a 2 ohm load, or a 4 ohm? 2 right? Also, the amp has dual outputs, and i've read that I can wire up further by using both output terminals.

    So basically hook the inputs to both + + and both - - of the amps?

    Wire Run .. Why?

    Well amp went up in smoke yesterday. Won't have money for a week or two to get it repaired. This pucking sucks.

    What exactly is bridging? Sharing power between channels to add resistance?

    Wire Run .. Why?

    Thank you, I did a run under the car, the cable is hidden away and pulled pretty tight, it hangs maybe 1/4th inch off the bottom of the vehicle which is not noticeable at all. I will need to pin it up still, any suggestions on what to use? I went under the car so I didn't have the wire under the carpet showing where the cable is. My 0/1 grounding is done only in the rear, it seems a little more difficult to replace the front grounding because the engines grounding cable isnt long enough for me to reclamp it with another 0guage wire. Is there anything to worry about here?

    Wire Run .. Why?

    I am going to see what is easiest, if I need to drill at all, I will just run under the car and make sure there is hang. One reason for running under the car is to keep power wires away from speaker wire. It is also a lot easier to conceal under the car as well, 0/1 and bigger can get pretty hard to hide. Running under the carpet I imagine raises a good portion of the carpet, including around the cable.
  13. no problems here either, i was worried at first, but every where i've read that isolators are just a waste of money

    Wire Run .. Why?

    You're the first person to say don't run it under the car lol, so we'll see, I have heard to run it under the car, but I feel exactly as you, and it's exposed to water and heat more so than the 4 feet in just the engine. Thank you for your quick response though brotha!

    Custom SSA ICON 10's

    SSA Icons are great subs, and they are up to par as a SQ sub, but they don't get the excursion you need for real SPL. Icon's don't have enough Xmas for high wattage unless you're happy with bottoming out. I abuse the ICON's I have that are custom and they are holding up very well as long as I don't abuse for long periods, but they aren't invincible. If you're into sound clarity, and still want to be loud grab an ICON, 1000w to each at 2ohms and you'd be a great match and give you quality and power, or if you're into pressure and air movement grab an SPL sub.
