    Wiring up Alpine Sub

    I've got an Alpine SWR 1222D Sub and am wondering how to wire it up correctly. Its got a dual voice coil. It will be running off of an Alpine M500 Amp.

    Any help or wiring diagrams are greatly recieved.
    Never happy, always wanting more!

    Link the positive of 1coil to the negative of the other coil.

    Then run the unused negative to negative on amp and postive to possy on amp.

    This will then show the amp a 4ohm load and therefore you sub will be seeing 300w RMS

    Which Alpine amp do you have, the MRD-M500 or the MRP-M500?

    That particular amp should produce 250W in this configuration.
