Dual what??? the only way to do that is to have a dual 2ohm sub and run in parallel. pos to pos, neg to neg. Parallel cuts the ohms in half and series doubles it!

How do wire my 15'' to 1ohm


If each voice coil is rated at 2-ohm, then wire it in "parallel". This will make a 1-ohm total load.

amp pos. out to coil 1 pos. to coil 2 pos.

amp neg. out to coil 1 neg. to coil 2 neg.

If the they are dual 4-ohm, the rating would be 2-ohm in parallel.

How do i wire mtx 9500 subs 2 10'' down to a one ohm


THE T9510-04 SUBS ARE SINGLE COIL SUBS AND YOU CAN VIEW THAT WIRING DIAGRAM AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:
http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/subwoofers/TechData_T9510-04.pdf

THE T9510-44 SUBS ARE DUAL VOICE-COIL SUBS AND YOU CAN VIEW THAT WIRING DIAGRAM AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:
http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/subwoofers/TechData_T9510-44.pdf

SINCE YOU NEED A 1 OHM LOAD, I PRESUME BRIDGED AND ARE USING TWO SUBS, THEN HOPEFULLY YOU HAVE THE DUAL VOICE COIL TYPE, AS THEY ARE DUAL 4 OHM AND YOU WILL HAVE TO CONNECT THE VOICE-COILS IN PARALLEL WHICH WILL MAKE EACH SPEAKER A 2 OHM SPEAKER AND THEN CONNECT THE TWO SPEAKERS THEMSELVES IN PARALLEL AND THIS WILL PROVIDE YOU THE 1 OHM LOAD. IF YOU IN FACT HAVE THE SINGLE 4 OHM VOICE COIL VERSION, THEN IT WILL ONLY PARALLEL THE PAIR DOWN TO 2 OHMS. OK. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

How do you hook up 2 15 inch cvr to 1 ohm


Hello juanelreypla,

If your CVR's have dual 2 ohm voice coils, they can only be wired for 0.5 ohm, 2 ohm, or 8 ohm final loads.

http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/woofer_wizard.asp?submitted=true&woofer_qty=2&woofer_imp=3

If they have dual 4 ohm voice coils, they can be wired to a final load of 1 ohm. Wire the voice coils in parallel and then parallel both subs. Like the diagram in Wiring Option #1 shown here.

Logic soundlab cpx1400 need to wire to a kicker cvr 15


Hello discrete01,

The Kicker model number 07CVR122 has dual 2 ohm voice coils, and can be wired for either 1 ohm or 4 ohms. Model number 07CVR124 has dual 4 ohm voice coils and can be wired for either 2 ohms or 8 ohms.

Kicker's wiring page is here: http://www.kicker.com/dvc_wiring

If you have the version with 2 ohm voice coils, you want to use the 2nd diagram for a final load of 4 ohms to the amp. The 1 ohm load is too low for the amp and will cause it to overheat and possibly fail. If you have the 4 ohm version, use the wiring shown in the 3rd diagram which is a perfect match for the amp.

Hope this helps.

I have 2 positives and 2 negatives on back of my alphasonik sub, do i connect amp to one side or both sides?


Hello gaz69,

Your PSW815 has 2 ohm dual voice coils allowing you to better match the impedance to your amp. Each voice coil is 2 ohms. If you wire them in parallel (both +'s together and both -'s together and then to the amp terminals), the sub presents a 1 ohm load which is too low for most amps. Wiring the voice coils in series (one + to the other - and the remaining + and - to the amp terminals) results in a 4 ohm load.

This link shows the wiring diagram for both options. If you know for sure that your amp is 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #1. If the amp is not 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #2.

Hope this helps.

How to wire it up


your best bet is to go onto www.the12volt.com and find the tab at the top that says subwoofer wiring diagrams. Next go to google and search for audiovox subwoofers and search through. You will definately have no issue if you find the model it will tell you the impedence of the subwoofer. 2 ohm dual voice coil, 4 ohm dual voice coil, 8 ohm dual voice coil. anyway it is a dual voice coil

Wiring 12" icmb-5612 preformance teknique subwoofer


That sub has dual 4-ohm voice coils. It can be wired either as 2-ohm, 4-ohm, or as 8-ohm.

2-ohm = voice coils in parallel (both positives and both negatives connected to your speaker amp out wires).
4-ohm = use only 1 voice coil (either is OK).
8-ohm = voice coils in series (connect the positive of one voice coil to the negative of the other and connect the remaining positive and negative to your speaker amp out wires).
