Re: speaker load

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

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

Ppi dcx 1500.1 is it 2 powerful 4 da 12in. L7?

Hello montyski20,

The amp outputs 500 watts RMS into 4ohms, 750 watts RMS into 2ohms and 1000 RMS into 1ohm.

The L7 can handle 750 watts RMS (375 watts per each coil). If your L7 is the 2ohm version, you should wire the voice coils in series, the positive marked coil to the negative unmarked coil. Then connect the remaining positive and negative to the amp terminals. This gives you a 4ohm load (500 watts). If your L7 is the 4ohm version, wire the voice coils in parallel, both marked and unmarked positives together, likewise both negatives and then to the amp terminals. This gives a 2ohm load (750 watts).

Paralleling the 2ohm sub will result in a 1ohm load (1000 watts) and that is too much for the L7.

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.

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.

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.
