Question about Performance Teknique ICBM-5712 Car Subwoofer

I have a pair of performance teknique CBM-5712,im trying to find the spec's on RMS,it just say it gives out 500 RMS but it also say its 2/4/8 ohm operational,so im trying to see the best way to wire them and how much power would it get if i wire them 2/4/or 8 ohm.just want to know my options.thank you

You will get more power at lower ohms, the lower the ohms the less resistance it will have against the amplifier

heres a small definition if it helps

The ohm is defined as the electric resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference of 1 volt, applied to these points, produces in the conductor a current of 1 ampere, the conductor not being the seat of any electromotive force.[

Look for a 4-channel amp that pushes 50 watts RMS @ 4 ohm.

Make sure the amp is CEA-2006 compliant.

Ignore peak or max watts as these are arbitrary numbers.

Your can go down to 2 ohm but will take 4 fine wire your 6 x 9 s to one side one ch each and bridge the sub across the other 2 channels.

Each speaker is rated at 200 watts/RMS. This means it can handle up to that limit without distortion.

Personally, I would not put more than 500 RMS total to that sub. 300-400 RMS is more like it.

The 500W RMS total wattage is for both coils combined. If you want to get REALLY specific, all of the industry-specific specifications are as follows.

12" Dual 4 Ohm Peformance Subwoofer
Power Handling:
Impedance: Dual 4 ohm
Reinforced aluminum curvilinear cone woofer
Oversized butyl rubber surround
5 spoke Die-cast aluminum basket
2" Flat ultra excursion spider
Industrial Chromed Hex bolt retained T-Yoke
DC resistance (Re): 3.2 ohms each coil
Frequency range: 20 Hz-1.1 kHz
Fs:30 Hz
QTS:.526
QES:.614
QMS:7.698
VAS:56L
SD:.0491M
SPL: 89.58 dB 1W/1m
Xmax:16mm
Mounting Depth: 160 MM
Mounting Hole Dia.:282 MM

- Peak: 1000 watts
- RMS: 500 watts

i think its a power acoustik amp im not sure that was a pioneer model. if it is apower acoustik the specs are

125 rms x 2 @ 4 ohms

150 rms x 2 @ 2 Ohms

300 rms x 1 @ 4 Ohms

You can only bridge the amp at 4 ohms dnt go lower than that

125 rms x 2 @ 4 ohms

150 rms x 2 @ 2 Ohms

300 rms x 1 @ 4 Ohms

You can only bridge the amp at 4 ohms dnt go lower than that

look on the bottom of subwoofer should say like olm2412 olm1612 olympus the 1612 is the rms and speaker size 2412 is 2400 rms and the 12 stands for 12 inch subwoofer.i think thair is only 2 modles . also u have 4 u would need a 10,000 rms amp if thay are the olm2412s or 6,000 rms amp to push 4 olm1612. as far as box building info i think you should call maxxsonnics. 847-540-7700 talk to mike

Pump the brakes!

You need to know the RMS power rating of the sub you are powering.

Dont exceed the RMS power rating of the sub by more than 25%.

If you see a peak power rating on either the sub or the amp, ignor it, means nothing. Always compare RMS ratings.

Example: a Sony 12" Xplod sub, boasting 1200 watts, will only handle, 350 watts RMS, so the amp you choose to power the sub should be 350 watts RMS as well, and should not exceed more than 25% of the RMS power handling (487.5 watts).

Bottom line, know your RMS numbers, not Peak.

WELL FIRST IF THEY ARE DUAL VOICE COILS, IF SO,TO GET 2 OHMS JUS THOOK THEM UP TO ONE OF THE TWO TERMINALS, IF YOU WANT 4 OHMS HOOK YOUR POWER LEAD TO ONE TERMINAL THEN ABOUT THREE FEET OF WIRE COMING FROM YOUR LEAD TO THE O9THER TERMINAL, IF YOU WANT 8 OHMSHOOK YOUR POWER LEAD TO + ON ONE SIDE THEN THE NEGITIVE LEAD TO THE - ON THE OTHER SIDE, THEN VISE VERSA. BUT IF I WHERE YOU MAKE THEM 4 OHMS

GOOD LUCK
