I've been having a gigantic issue with getting any sound from my subs. Here's my other thread on it from the Amp forum:
I originally thought it was the amp/receiver, and it still may be, but I'd like to rule out some more basic things now.
Setup is 4 AE IB15s, 8 ohms. Going to an EP-2000 amp. I'm trying to do two subs to each channel, because I don't need a TON of power.
Let's start with the wiring. It is my understanding that to wire them in parallel, I need to do red to red, black to black, and then on one sub, a black and a red wire to the neg/pos terminals on one channel of the amp.
I've wired both sets of subs up this way, one to each channel, with the low cut filter set to OFF and the rest of the amp jump switches where they need to be for parallel mode as opposed to bridge mode.
If this wiring is correct, is there a problem with the physical set up of the subs?
They are located in a closet directly behind my theater room. The idea is that the openings on the boxes will vent into the room, but I don't want to cut the walls out and mount up the subs until I know that everything is working correctly and I won't have to change the boxes around.
I feel really stupid and incompetent right now, as well as completely frustrated.
