Seeing that is a a/b class concept i know it will do 1ohm but if dont have good battery power stay at 2ohms with it and it will do fine

I have a comp s 12 2ohm kicker and a comp vr 12 dual 2ohm kicker how do i wire these to stay at 2ohms to the amp

you can wire them to be at 2ohm load you need two of the same speaker. its is very bad on the amp to run like that and you will not get a good bass sound because one will over power the other sound wise

Tip

How to calculate impedance in multiple speakers.

The ohms value is determined by the equation product /sum if the speakers are parallel,and addition if they are in series.
For example, you have two 4ohm speakers,and they are hooked up +to+ and _ to _. it will create a 2ohm load.The product or multiplication factor is 4x4 divided by 4+4.
16ohms divided by 8 equals 2 ohms.

A series configuration is different : if two 4ohm speakers are in series,where the _of one is connected to the + of the other,you have to add the two values hence 4+4 will make 8ohms. When you reduce resistance,you draw more current and create more wattage as long as the amplifier can deliver that current.A higher resistance draws less wattage,but will not shut down the amplifier.
Unless an amplifier is designed to drive a 2ohm load,it will shut down or burn out.Always follow the recommended speaker impedance.

Can I hook up 2 single coil subs at a 2 ohm load on my sony xm-1252gtr?

If your sub woofers are SVC (single voice coil) 2 OHM each, then connecting one to each channel would make the amplifier run in 2OHM stereo Then again, if your sub woofers are 2OHM each, it would be better to connect both together in series and connect them to the BRIDGE specified speaker terminals of your amplifier making it run a 4OHM load into one channel. This will give you all the power the amp can give and still run stable. A 2OHM load into one channel will likely damage your amplifier. Do not forget to set the LPF (low pass filter)on if you are going to use the amplifier to run sub woofer/s. dreamsystems

Amp tripping ,voltage is 12v and not dropping,speaker is 1 ohm. can anyone help

These amps can only handle 2ohm load if im correct....Thats why its acting funny

I have an mmats pro audio car amplifier model d800.2, the problem is whenever i power it up it powers up and goes into thermal protection. can you tell me if it is a fried cap or something

i believe your amp is 2ohm stable so be sure your speaker are wired for a 2ohm load or higher anything below 2ohm would throw the amp into protect

My 12" subwolfer has two ports how do i install it to my amp

if it is a dual 4 ohm voicecoil subwoofer - and your amplifier is rated at a 2 ohm load - both + to the + on the amplifier, and both - to the - on the amplifier will net a 2ohm mono load.
Most amplifiers are capable of a 2 ohm bridged load.

If your subwoofer us dual 2 ohm - a 1 ohm load is achieved, but many amplifiers cannot handle this low impedence and damage will result.

Verify your amplifier's capabilities before wiring - and also the impedence of your voicecoils.

Finding the best amplifier

Hello sharky75,

That 1600 watt peak power figure for your subwoofer can't tell you what amp you need. You need to know the maximum RMS power the sub can handle. And you need to know the impedance (ohms) of the voice coil(s). JBL GT5 series subs have an RMS rating of 275 watts. The GTO series handles 300 watts. The Power series handles 400 watts. The GTi series handles 700 watts. Some are single voice coil, so the impedance is fixed. Others are dual voice coil allowing you to wire them for different impedance loads.

For maximum performance your amp should be able to provide at or near the same number of watts RMS into the lowest impedance at which the sub can be configured. For example, if your sub is the Power Series Model number P1224, it has dual 4ohm voice coils and can be wired to present either a 2ohm load (parallel) or an 8ohm load (series). You want to wire the voice coils in parallel for the 2ohm load and select an amp that outputs up to 400 watts RMS into 2ohms. The Orion Cobalt CO8001 is just such an amp. If you have one of the GTi Series subs, a better amp would be the JVC Arsenal KS-AR75 which outputs 700 watts into 2ohms.

Hope this helps.

My Orion d-5000 amp which is wired to an Orion hcca 12.2 sub cuts out at high volumes , it's wired with 0 guage wires

Your speaker is a dual 2ohm sub. If you have both voice coils wired Parallel that will drop the ohm load to 1, which the amp can not handle. You need to wire the voice coils in series. Treat each voice coil as a speaker.

This sounds like an amplifier that trying to push a lower impedance load than its supposed to. Typical aftermarket car speakers have a 4ohm reading per voicecoil. By running more than one speaker per channel you can get more power(sometimes alot more) from the amp by feeding it a 2ohm load or more. If the amp isn't designed to handle ratings less than 4ohms a channel it will overheat and shutdown.
