Wiring a crossfire vr602 at 4ohm


OK what you are saying now is that your speakers are dual voice coil; models? 4 Ohms per Coil? I have always used single 4 Ohm Voice ciol speakers since amps are mostly based on 4 Ohm outputs. but you can get 8 Ohm dual voice coil subs also. With 8 Ohms per coil you can get 4 Ohms if you parallel the wires. What is best for you and will get you the most stable power and still will be in the specs of that amp is to run the amp in BRIDGED MODE running each subs voice coils in series with each other then run those 2 subs in parallel to the amplifier giving it a 4 Ohm load. So, your will have two sets of wires from your amp 1 for each speaker. Then you will take a short piece of wire that will connect the + to the - of each voice coil then hook up the wires from your amp to each sub What it will be is 4 Ohms + 4 Ohms = 8 Ohms per speaker the 8 Ohms in parallel each speaker to the Bridged amp output using just the + from one channel and the - from the other will give you a total of 4 ohms and power out put of 600 Watts so that ends up being 150 watts per voice coil or 300 watts each speaker

How to wire a crossfire vr602 2 channel amp at 4ohm and 2ohm


I would be more worried about the amp than the speakers, those subs should handle the watts with no problem. The problem will be in the amps ability to remain working with a bridged 2 ohm load. It may not even stay on without going into protect mode with a 2 ohm load. If it does stay on then it may get really hot and shut off from the heat off of the Mosfett Transistors, or it could burn the Mosfetts from driving them too hard. Basically it's your choice, run your amp hard and gain more volume or run it with slightly less sound and have a cleaner sounding more stable amp that will stay on and have less chance of being damaged. If it's not loud enough the best thing to do is buy a different amp that better suits your needs and fits the application. In your case a 2 ohm stable Mono amp is going to be your best bet or a 4 channel amp bridged into 2 channels and run with 4 ohms on each channel. Or another exact matching amp like your 2 channel amp bridge them both and have each powering 1 of your 4 ohm subs. I used two VR mono amps to power my two 12" 4 ohm subs for a few years

How to wire a 4ohm sub woffer to a 2ohm stable?


First you need two 4 ohm speakers or one Dual voice coil speaker. you wire the speakers in parallel bringing the total impeadence to 2 ohms. The amplifier is what has to be 2 ohm stable...check your technical specs on the amp to see if its stable at 2 ohms...not all are. check this

I have 2 18" kicker


First you need the OHM rating of the subs. Most of the time its on the box or the magnet on the back of the subs (normaly 2ohm 4ohm or 8ohm) And that of the amp. Most amps are 4 ohm output if its a 2channel and 2ohm output if its a mono. You NEED to know these cuz wiring it wrong can blow channels in your amp or cause it to cut "in and out"

Alpine x is not reading proper ohm resistance amps blew


the gmax amps are only 2ohm stable. it is odd that they both blew at the same time but if the impedence is too low to amps will fail.dual 4ohm dvc subs wired in parallel should read around 2ohms. allthought impedence varies with frequency and isnt truly stable.

How do you wire sub speakers to change omes


if you have a 4ohm sub you can series it with another to make a 2ohm load. this is done by + from amp to + on one sub then take the - of that same sub and run it to the+ of the other sub then you only need to run a wire from - of that sub to the - on the amp. NOTE IF YOUR AMP IS BRIGED THIS IS A 1 OHM LOAD!! IF THE TOO SUBS ARE ON ONE CHANNEL THIS IS A Two OHM LOAD IF YOU ARE RUNNING 8 OHM SUBS THEN YOUR AT 4OHM PER CHANNEL AND 2 OHM BRIGED

2 ohm speakers wont work on a lanzar max pro 4000 watt


The 2 ohm stable rating on the amp is PER channel meaning that you could effectively hook up a 2 ohm speaker or a 2 ohm load to each channel without the amp getting f"d up-butin bridged mode it will only be 4 ohm stable. to achieve a 4 ohm load with your sub the type x wire the coils in series that will get you at 4 ohms to run in bridged mono .But you will get the exact same amount of power if you wire each coil to one channel of the amp as bridged mono sees the sum of your 2 ohm channels combined-Hope that helps.

Soundstream rub 500-1 mono....


U need to make sure your subs are wired correctly. And u need to make sure all your speakers are at the same ohm load. If u hook up two subs on one channel and two more on the other one u need to make sure that your subs are all 2ohm or 4ohm subs cause if u got two 4ohm subs ran parrallel then u will have a 2ohm setting and if both of them are 2ohm subs them your load will be a 1ohm load witch could harm your amp unless its an 1ohm stable amplifier.

How can i get a 2ohm load outta 2 4ohm dvc subs can you show me how to wire the amp as well it says on the amp its 2ohm stable


A normal wiring setup to produce a 4-ohm load is what you usually see - each speaker is wired to one channel of the amp. This is series wiring. To get a 2-ohm load, you need to wire in parallel. Here's how:

Take sub A and wire the positive terminal to the positive terminal of channel 1 on the amp. Wire the negative terminal of sub A to the negative terminal of channel 2 on the amp. For sub B, it's the opposite - positive terminal of sub B to the positive terminal of channel 2, and the negative to the negative terminal of channel 1. That's parallel wiring, and will produce the 2-ohm loading (and subsequent increase in output) that you're seeking.

Wiring my kicker solo-baric 15's


The best you can do is connect the dual 2 ohm voice coils of each respective sub in series (4 ohms total per sub) and then connect each sub to one channel of the amp. This will give each sub 1000W, which is the rated maximum from Kicker.
