Your amp based on what you say would have no problems whatsoever with an 8 ohm load, not even if it actually has dual 4 ohm coils and you wire them in parallel giving a 2 ohm load (don't know your particular sub).

Every good car amp has protection circuits to prevent itself or the speakers from damage from too low loads so it shouldn't be a problem even if you screw up with your calculations. A good amp should even be capable of dealing with a dead short on a channel, zero ohms, activating protection of course.

Good luck and don't worry!

    You will get about a 100W out of that amp @ 8 ohm which is about what the sub will take, it seems to be a good match based on a quick review of basic parameters. This will give you plenty of power in a good cabinet, this driver is very flexible. Have fun!

What way should I hook 2 12" jl audio to a jl audio 1000/1


Is this sub an svc or a dvc? From what I looked up they are svc, so each sub's voicecoil is 3 OHMS, connecting them in parallel would lower them to 1.5, and your amp is capable of going down to 1.5 ohms. So I would suggest running them in parallel.

Speakers wired in parallel
Recommended Amplifier: Stable at 2 or 1 ohm mono 2_4ohm_svc_2ohm.gif
(Although from the information I gathered these subs have 3 OHM voicecoils, so in the diagram where is says 4 OHM it should say 3 OHM, and the 2 OHM should say 1.5 OHMS.

This is a good site to help calculate OHMS: http://www.bcae1.com/spkrmlti.htm


Hope this helps.

I am wondering what amp i would need for 2 JL Audio W3v3 - 2ohms. I am looking for something around 200. SHould I go with the Mono block and how many watts?


well you can go a couple different directions. you can wire them parallel or in series. parallel will get you down to about 1.3 ohms at the amp and series will get you close to 4 ohms. you need an amplifier thats stable at either of those impedances. the lower the resistance (impedance) the more power your going to get to the subs. I manage an electronics store and specialize in mobile audio/video. we are a 'Signature JL Audio Dealer' so i like to say i know the product line very well. JL makes an amplifier that is stable from 1.5 to 4 ohms and will put out the same amount of power at any impedance in that range which is really nice. Its called their 'Slash Series' you are looking for a JL Audio 500/1 amplifier. Grab an 8 gauge amp kit (4 gauge would over do it) and wire 'em up. Enjoy!

2 12" dvc subs 2 ohm stable amp


+ on amp output to + on speaker #1 to + on speaker #2. - on amp output to - on speaker #1 to - on speaker #2. This is a parallel circuit....4 ohms in parallel with 4 ohms = 2 ohms. IF it were wired in series....would represent 8 ohm load.

I have a ly1440 amp how can i wire it to my hk15x2


This subwoofer has (2) 2 Ohm voicecoils.
Which means you will only be able to wire a 1 Ohm or 4 Ohm configuration for your amplifier.
The Model # you listed for the amplifier is not a valid one.

If your amplifier is 1 Ohm mono stable...
you wire both (+) Sub to amp (+)
and both (-) on Sub to amp (-)
This is PARALLEL wiring and lets the amplifier SEE a one ohm load

If your amplifier is NOT one ohm mono capable - your only other possibility is a 4 Ohm load.

Wire from (+) on amplifier to one (+) on the sub
Then Wire from (-) on amplifier to the OTHER terminal's (-)
You will have one (+) and one (-) left on the subwoofer - wire them together.

This is SERIES wiring, and nets a 4 ohm load for your amplifier.

There is no other configuration for wiring one Dual 2 ohm sub.

AMP


That amplifier is only stable to 2 ohms.
You will only be able to use one Dual 4 ohm Subwoofer wired in parallel (all + to + on amp.... all - to - on amp.
This will yield a 2 ohm mono load.

It is impossible to wire (2) dual 4 ohm voicecoils to achieve a 2 ohm mono load.

If you're set on using both subwoofers - they will not be getting as much power from your amplifier with a 4 ohm load - but it is your only option.

1 10 jl jl 250/1 mono block amp cuts off an on help


your subwoofer is wired incorrectly to your amplifier. Figure out which ohm load of subs you have and then what ohm load options your amp is stable at. Next go to either the Crutchfield website. find their learning center. go to subwoofer wiring diagrams. or go to www.the12volt.com and find their section on it

Ohm load???


You can't wire a pair of single voice coil 2ohm subs to achieve a 2 ohm mono load. Too bad you don't have 2 four ohm SVC's. Sorry
