Sub wiring

I have two SI HT 15d4's.


My amp is Behringer ep 4000

What kind of terminal should be on back of enclosure?

What size wire should I use to run from terminal to drivers. ( both drivers in same enclosure ).?


What wiring and connectors to from receiver to amp and amp to sub?

Hope to learn something new, and know how to use it.

Re: Sub wiring

Terminal cup:

I use 10 gauge wire from the terminal to drivers.

Amp to sub can be 14 gauge for short runs, bigger for a longer run.

Reciever to amp will depend on what HPF unit you use.

What is used to change from XLR on amp to positive and negative terminals on sub?

Re: Sub wiring

You wouldn't use the XLR's you would use the Output Terminals which is for speaker wire.

Not sure if this should be another thread or not.

With two drivers would it be better to wire individually and run both channels from amp?

Or.

In bridge mode how is wattage controlled?

Re: Sub wiring

Either way works for wiring. The gain control on the front of the amp controls wattage.

Re: Sub wiring

Just to make sure I understand. In order to send 600+ watts to each enclosure with the EP 4000, It has to be in bridged mode. The drivers being dual 4 have to be wired in series making 8 ohms and then basically having to speaker cables leaving amp to each enclosure, therefore paralleling so the amp sees 4 ohms.

Hope to learn something new, and know how to use it.

Re: Sub wiring

In order to bridge amp do I need to have two channels input from receiver to mic2200 and then out to amp with two?
