Depends on the amplifier if you have a mono block amp or a regular 2 output amp if it is 2 output make sure to bridge and that means the negative to one output and positive to the other output then need to find out the rms on the speaker. the amp should have the ability to adjust it you might want to get a digital multimeter set it to watts and make sure you only set it to the RMS of the speaker because max handling should be the 1800 and usually the RMS is half the max so it should be 900 w again it depends on the amp and were the adjusting knob is and or if it has one

Can I wire 2 dual 2ohm subwoofers to a 1ohm load and yes my amp is 1ohm stable I want to get the max rms from my amp


King Chambers,

It would be optimal to have subwoofers that are Dual 4 Ohm. However I am going to tell you the most optimal way to hook up the combination you have to extract the most power out of your amplifier.

You will need to wire each subwoofer in series by taking the positive from one coil on the subwoofer and connecting it to the other voice coil on the same subwoofer; then take the left over positive and negative and hook that to your amplifier.

You will do the same with the other subwoofer. This will give you a 2 ohm load. If you had dual 4 ohm coils then we could get you down to a 1 ohm load.

Got 2 woofers, 2ohm stable each. If I get 1ohm stable monoblock amp, will it split that 1ohm equally in 2ohms for each speaker, or would I have to buy another 2 speakers that r 1ohm stable each?


Connecting the two 2 ohm speakers in parallel will create a 1 ohm load. Connect the positives of both speakers to the plus output of the amp, both negatives of the speakers to the minus output of the amp.

I have a JL audio 12W3v2-d4 subwoofer which has two sets of terminals and i needto know how to wire them correctly as my old one only had one set of terminals . i bought it second hand and didnt get wiring...


Your amp is stable bridged mono at 2ohms, however, having dual 2ohm voice coils will drop the amp to 1ohm if parallel and will kill it. The cleanest possible way to run this amp and keep it cool with lots of headroom is to run the coice coils in series then run the amp in mono @ 4ohms. To do this, run from one voice coil to another, a jumper. connect positive from one voice coil to the neg of the other voice coil. Then connect the remaning positive on one voice coil and the neg from the other voice coil to your amp (positive left and negative right on the amp) If your amp has a switch for momo make sure it is on, some are automatic. Hope this helps

How do i bridge 2-4ohm dvc's to a mono block


If you have a DVC 4ohm speaker, and you are using both voice coils, the amp is seeing a 2ohm load.
If you bridge the amp, you CAN run both subs as long as the amp is Two Ohms Stable.
Wire each subs voice coils in parallel.(Positive to positve, neg to neg.) (2ohms) each.
Then wire the two subs in series.(Neg from amp to neg of sub one, pos of sub one to neg of sub two. then pos of sub two to pos of amp.

If it sounds too hard, leave it as you are already running the amp at two ohms.

Whats the best way to hook up my L7 10''


Hello ereza25,

The best way depends on what amp you are using to power the sub. With dual 2ohm voice coils, you can wire to either a 1ohm or a 4ohm final load. If you are sure that your amp is stable down to 1ohm, that wiring will provide the best power to the sub. But if the amp is not rated at 1ohm (many aren't), then the 1ohm wiring will result in overheating and possible damage to your amp.

The wiring diagrams are here. Hope this helps.

Wiring hk12x2


Hello jose08042008,

Your sub has dual 2ohm voice coils and can be wired to present a final load to the amplifier of either 1ohm or 4ohms. Unless you have an amp that is stable at 1ohm (not many are), then you will want to use the 4ohm wiring. To wire for 4ohms, jumper the positive terminal of one voice coil to the negative of the other terminal, and connect the remaining positive and negative terminals to your amp. If you know for SURE that your amp is stable at 1ohm, you can connect both positives and both negatives together on the sub and then to the amp. But if the amp 1ohm stable, this will result in overheating, and/or going into "protection" mode, and/or damage to the amp.

Hope this helps.
