Dual 2 ohm or dual 4 ohm?

I am building my own system, but don't know a whole lot. I have been reading and studying, but have a question. What is the difference between a dual 2 ohm sub and a dual 4 ohm sub? My JL 6600 amp is rated at 75watts RMS @ 2 ohm. All I want to do is bridge channels 5 & 6 to drive 1 sub, but I don't know if I should buy a dual 2 ohm or dual 4 ohm.

I would suggest you go with the 4ohm. It won't be a loud but it will be more stable. You will be less likely to blow up your amp with the 4ohm.

Whats the best way to hook up 2-10'' 4 ohm dual voice coil to the d5 1200.1 amp


4x4 ohm voice coils can be configured to either run @ 1 ohm, 4 ohm or 16 ohm, while the amp needs to be dropped to 2 ohms, no lower, to be most efficient. if a single dvc sup could handle 1200 watts, then hjust run 1, with both coils positive and negative inputs connected to the amps output. if you needed both subs, you would lilely only get 600 watts, by creating a 4 ohm load by running both speakers to the amp positive to 1 ccoil, each speaker, an mjumper cable between the negative of 1sdt clils to positive of 2nd coins, and running both 2nd coil negatives back from both speakers to the amp negative. the 2nd wscenerio will result in less sheer wattwage, but will also provide cleaner power. you need to study ohms law and parallel versus serial wiring to accomplish the 2nd scenerio, or, just get 2 4 ohm single voice coil speakers that can handle 600 watts apiece.

I just needed some help with wiring my p8002 rockford amp to 2 fosgate 10 inch subs i just bought. there 4 ohms a piece and dual voice coil. i dont know much about car stereos but people keep telling me...


Well i tried looking up that amp, but Fosgate sight is down. So assuming that the best power out of your amp is 2ohms off the bridged hookup, and the subs are 4 ohms per coil, the best way is to only use one side of each speaker and hook it straight the the bridge. Only using one hook up wont hurt anything, its just for giving you wiring options. And when adding up ohms of speakers, it goes like this. If you had two 4 ohm subs, that'll give you a 2 ohm load. If you hooked up all your hookups, it would be like having four 4 ohm subs, and would give you a 1 ohm load.

I have a sony xm-2002gtw and i want to know if i can hook two 2-ohm dual subwoofers up to this amp and how i have 2 solo baric 12-inch.


200W x 2 @ 4 Ohm
500W x 1 @ 4 Ohm

This amplifier cannot handle a load lower than 4 Ohms in stereo or bridged mode.

If the subs are Dual 2 ohm - You cannot wire a 4 ohm load with (2) subwoofers.

Only 8, 2, or 1/2 ohm loads are possible with (2) dual 2ohm voicecoils

Thanks!

How to connect HIFONICS BXI 2607 D watt at 1 ohm....


That's dependent on your subwoofers. You will need 2 dual 4 ohm subs wired in Parallel, a single dual 2 ohm subwoofer wired in parallel, a single dual .5 ohm wired in series. Or something similar.

If my woofers at bridged and my and is too but it


first you dont bridge both ,, 2nd you will need to find out what ohms your speakers are , and if dual coil what ohms each coil is ,, then find out what ohms your amp runs at , at full power.. then try to match your subs to the same ohm load,, REMEMBER there are diff ways onto how to hook subs on which will change the ohms.. good example 1 dual coil sub each coil is 2 ohms then you can hit a 1 ohm or 4,, depending how you hook them up .. When adding more subs and how you hook them up changes the whole game.. if your not sure on how to hook them up read a manual or go to a local shop you can burn your subs up or worst the amp if hooked up incorrectly ..

General ?


they are dual 2 ohm all L7 are 2 voice coil per speaker so it is like 2 speakers not 1 the dual 2 ohm version is so you can use 2 speakers wired in series to get a 2 ohm load 2 ohms + 2 ohms = 4 ohms then parralel the 2 at the amp to cut it in half to get 2 ohms. I have full warranties on mine and i dont really sell alot of them any way I prefer the hifonics they sound better last alot longer and take way more power and put out 3 times as much sound. but i can check it out if you have the info.

Dual voice coil wiring to class d amp


The easiest way to think of wiring voice coils and subs is this:
  • Two items of the same impedance in parallel = Half of the impedance
    • 4 ohms in parallel with 4 ohms = 2 ohms
    • 8 ohms in parallel with 8 ohms = 4 ohms
  • Two items of the same impedance in series = Double the impedance
    • 4 ohms in series with 4 ohms = 8 ohms
    • 8 ohms in series with 8 ohms = 16 ohms
In this case, you want to wire two subs, each with dual 4 ohms voice coils, so that the total equals 2 ohms. Your options are:
  • DVCs in parallel, 2 subs in series = 4 ohms
  • DVCs in series, 2 subs in parallel = 4 ohms
  • DVCs in parallel, 1 sub = 2 ohms
With two, dual 4 ohm subs, you can only have 1 ohm or 4 ohm total impedance.

Mmatsd500.2


First, the specs:
  • PPI 4200am = 50x4 at 4 ohms, 100x4 at 2 ohms
  • Alpine 3553 = 35x4 at 4 ohms, 50x4 at 2 ohms
  • Mmats D500.2 = 350x1 at 4 ohms, 500x1 at 2 ohms
  • 3x Mmats Procast 12 = Dual 4 ohm VC
  • 1x JL 15w6 = Dual 6 ohm VC
  • 2x JL 15w0 = Single 8 ohm VC
Second, I don't think I would recommend mixing n' matching the subs. One of the subs would always be working harder than the rest. If you want to run multiple subs, make them all the same. Sometimes, you can get away with it if they are all the same voice coil impedance, but in this case you've got dual 4 ohm, dual 6 ohm, and single 8 ohm subs all in the mix.

If it were me, I'd probably stay with the single 15w6. But it's your money :)
