If each PV speaker is 2000 watts program at 4 ohms then bridge each amp and run one speaker per amp on a bridged channel. One behringer amp bridged to one 4 ohm 2000 watt program speaker. just be careful not to over power the speaker because you will have 400 watts over your 2000!!! I suggest using a limiter or make sure your gain structure is dialed in or POOOF!!! I hope this helps you also keep in mind that the ohms load in bridge can not go under 4 ohms.

Hi,

Maybe you can switch the amp in bridge mode.
I don't know this amplifier, maybe he doesn't like bridge mode with 4 Ohm speakers. That means every side of the amp. will get 2 Ohm. Please check the manual.

Regards,
Gerard

Hey i have a sony amp (600 watt xm-zr604) with 2 10"sub(sony xplod).when i raise the volume hight enough the amp go off(red light came on) what can i try


sounds as though (at high volumes) the amp thinks it has a short circuit. This may be caused by the way you have them connected.
Speakers have a resistance and amps needs a certain amount of resistance to function right (too little resistance = short circuit)
The way it works out for the speakers is, if the two are connected to one amp output channel, the amp will see half of the resistance of a single sub. (4 Ohms/sub amp sees 2 Ohms)
If the amp instructions say that it's 4 Ohms/channel then you need to use 1 channel for each sub.
Hope this has been some help.

What wattage speakers do I use with europower ep2500


Wow thats a serious system you have there.God help the neighbours!Anyway here is an example.you need a pretty serious speaker.At 8ohms,you would need something like a 8ohm 450watt speaker system.Anything smaller will stress your amp if you turn it up.The amp would kill smaller speakers or the amp internals(channels)at higher volume.It would be like hooking up a garden hose to a fire hydrant.Something would have to give.hope this helps and happy listening

Bose SA-3 amp and a non bose sub.. I keep blowing the amp..


How many ohms is your sub? The SA 3 Amp can only handle speaker(s) 6 ohms and greater. A lot of subs, as I understand, are 2 and 4 ohms typically. If yours is 2 or 4 ohms, then that explains it. The speaker would be "straining" your amplifier and blowing it.

Two 4-OHM DVC AND two 4-ohm


your amp is stable at 2ohm in stereo mode . you can wire them in series or parallel. series you add up the ohms . parallel you use this (R1+R2)divided by(R1xR2)=total resistance this figures two speakers at a time to add more speakers after total repeat formula as long as you don't go below min load you are fine . in your case all speakers in parallel you would be running 0 ohms bad . in series you would be running 16 ohms stable but not even half the power of your amp. if you hook up two in parallel and two in series on one channel you are running 1.6 ohms still not stable.If i was u I would hook up two 4ohm speakers in parallel on one channel and two in parallel on the other given you a stable 2ohm per channel.
total power output per channel 1200w

Pioneer 800w mono issue


It can be many things it possible the amp cannot handle the 4 ohm load and simply goes into power protection mode. Also make sure your using the correct gage wire to run power from your battery to the amp to thin and it wont have enough power to perform.

Yes you can,,,,,BUT the output labelling on the AMP will tell you where you can connect the 4ohms or the 8ohms....please read these labels and connect the 4ohm speakers to the 4ohm terminals, and the 8ohms to the 8ohms terminals...

If you intend to connect the 4ohm and the 8ohm speakers in parallel then the output impedance terminals you use should be the 4ohm ones.

If there is no labelling showing any 4ohm output terminals then its best if you dont use the 4ohm speakers at all....just connect the 8ohm to the 8ohm terminals...you dont mention any crossover networks inside the speaker boxes or if you have tweeter speakers... so just stick to the basics above at present....
