Question about Car Audio & Video
I have two original HCCA 12d subs from 2001, these are brand new and I hvae yet to install them, since these subs are so old I cannot find any info on them. I have a 275g4 and a 1400g5 orion amps and I want to wire my subs to run at a 2ohm load not 1 or 1/5 ohm like everyone else does only for the reason that I want my system to last, and not abuse my stuff by running it at max capacity. Please let my know how to properly wire my subs and amp to run what I want. Thankyou for ypur time, if ypu cant help could u please turn me to someone who can?
I had two of those they are awsome subs! anyway your best to connect them in parallel that is both positive wires connected together and both negative wires connected together then connect pos and neg to amp in a bridged configuration if its a 4 channel amp - this will put your subs under a 2ohm load and make sure you turn down gain and set your filter to low pass (very important!) turn up gain in increments till your happy :) rock on!

The JL 1000/1 will power the Orion HCCA OK.
It is stable only to 1.5 ohms so your best choice would be the 15.4 with dual 4ohm voice coils. In parallel, this would offer a 2ohm impedance. The 15.2 could only be wired for either a 1ohm load (too low) or a 4ohm load (less power).
Hope this helps.

Halving the impedance will draw twice the current. You could technically get a 3 Db more power since the peak voltage will remain the same. BUT if the magnet structure is not intended to use that cone design, the magnet difference MAY not give you 2 ohms.
In fact, if the designed magnetic flux were smaller, you could wind up with a 1 ohm speaker.
trying to get that much power is really kind of silly as even 50 watts with efficient speakers will exceed safe levels of sound that will not cause damage to your ears.
As you push an amp up in power, usually distortion will increase as well.
