Question about Dual XNBP12D Car Subwoofer
When i got them home i realized that they are running on one connection outlet instead of two separate wire hook up's. whats the purpose of that and is it possible to cut into box and connect my own so they run off of 2 channel instead of one?? or is it better to keep it running off one channel together and just bridge my amp to one channel
You need to look at the specifications of the speakers and the specifications of the amp you are hooking them up to. For example: The speakers could be 8ohm drivers wired in parallel which would produce one connection at 4ohms. Most "bridgeable" car amplifiers are very stable at 4ohms. However you must first find out if the amp is "bridgeable" which means it's taking both outputs and adding them together for one monoral output.
Now to the contrary: If both speakers are 4ohms wired parallel, this would produce a 2ohm load and alot of "inexpensive" amps will not work efficiently in a 2ohm load since it creats alot of heat! and will cause an amp to shut down.
Get your manuals out and look at the specifications for impedance.
Lastly, you've got a band-pass box that is specifically designed for a mono load. (one channel) since there is no internal divider between the subs. If you were to run this box in 2 channel or "stereo" the subs would not be moving in unisome and fighting each other for "airspace". Hope this helps
