Hi, I have a GX-A3001 running a Rockford fosgate punch P1 12&quot; and thinking of upgrading to the&nbsp; Punch 12&quot; P2 4-Ohm DVC Subwoofer The Rockford Fosgate P2 12&rdquo; subwoofer The P2D4-12 features a Dual 4-Ohm voice coil so not sure if it will work?&nbsp;

Asked by: Slyd81
Hi. The 3001 is specified to deliver 415 Watts into 2 Ohms, under specified circumstances. This means that you can connect the two 4 Ohm voice coils in your subwoofer drive unit in parallel, to give you a total impedance of 2 Ohms. Of course, no load is ever totally linear and ideal, so your sub may dip under 2 Ohms, and rise above 2 Ohms. Since 2 Ohms is the minimum that the 3001 can handle, it is on the edge of its capacity, so if your sub dips under 2 Ohms, or if you have low DC input voltage, or play at maximum levels over long periods of time, or have insufficient cooling, you may still experience problems, like protection circuits cutting in or thermo protection shutting audio off.

What is proper wiring for a 2 ohm speaker so i can get the full 300 rms of the amp

Asked by: shaun35
The GX-A3001 has two parallel sets of speaker connectors, allowing you to connect two subwoofers. If you are using a single subwoofer rated at 2-ohms you can connect it to either set of GX-A3001 speaker connectors, and this will provide that subwoofer the full 300W RMS of power.

Hi, I have a single 2-Ohm JBL MS-10SD2 shallow Sub- so should I connect the red+ to terminal 1 &amp; the black- to terminal 2 or to terminal 4 on the A3001 Amp? Also, is it OK to bolt it upside down in the boot onto the rear shelf / deck next to the Sub?

Asked by: Pulsarlaser
Hi, A single 2 ohm's subwoofer is connected to just a single channel ( not bridged ). If you have a 2nd 2ohm subwoofer, you will need to connect them serial on the 2 channels. ( You can find this information in the owners' manual you can find on our product page ). As for where to place the amplifier, this can be done upside down, or on it's side without any issues If you require further assistance, you can always reach us by email customer.support@harman.com or of course by phone

Hi, this amp is recommended for sub 250 rms 4 ohms and how is the connection???

Asked by: Cescareno08
To do the setup for the GX-A3001 Input, use a &quot;Y&quot;-adapter to connect your source unit or processor's subwoofer line output to the amplifier's left and right inputs. If your source unit does not have a dedicated subwoofer output you can connect the rear left/right outputs to the amplifier's left and right inputs.

Will this amplifier suitable (with optimum performance) for 2x subwoofer JBL GT5 12 single coil (@275W)??

Asked by: Bachtiar
Hi, Yes, this would work, the amplifier will give 300 Watt in 2ohm that means that 1 speaker will get 150 Watt RMS and the limit is 275 Watt, so this is safe under the limit. If you require further information, feel free to contact us by phone or email

will this amplifier suitable for old 2x JBL GT5 12 svc ??

Asked by: Sastra
Hi. Yes, the GT5 12&quot; sub is a 4 Ohm woofer, and you can connect two of them in parallel, to get a 2 Ohm load. The GX-A3001 amplifier is specified to give slightly more than 400 Watts into 2 Ohms, so that should work fine. One important thing to remember is to allow sufficient cooling for the amplifier. It should never be covered by blankets, floor mats, luggage etc, if you want to play loud.

If I have only one 2 ohms load do I have to use only one pair of terminals (+)(-) --&gt;(+)(-)&lt;-- or do I have to connect it like if it is in bridged I mean like this --&gt;(+) (-)(+) (-)&lt;--

Asked by: LKiD
The GX-A3001 has two parallel sets of speaker connectors, allowing you to connect two subwoofers. If you are using a single subwoofer you can connect it to either set of GX-A3001 speaker connectors. If you are using two 2-ohm subwoofers you can connect them to one of the sets of connectors in series to be above the required 2-ohm minimum impedance.
