Re: solobaric subs l7 15-inch

When you drop the Ohms and put them together, they go even lower. 2ohm + 2ohm = 1ohm which ur amp is not capable of. try this, with one subwoofer on one voice coil connect the positive (+) and negative(-) together(the ones without the dots) and the ones with the dots run to the speaker terminal like normal. do this for both speakers

Like this. Go to this link for a diagram:

Please leave good feedback.

Since it is a mono block amp, it depends on your subwoofer (s), and how you wire them to the amp.

Single 4 ohm sub would be just that, 4 ohms.

Single dvc 4 ohm sub, with both voice coils wired parallel would be 2 ohms.

2 dvc 4 ohm subs wired parallel would be a 1 ohm load.

It is only stable to 4 ohm mono(which is 400 watts RMS or a bit less not the max rating of 800 watts which is a PMPO rating).

Your Sub would have to be wired in series(8 ohm final load, if you wire it in parallel 2 ohm-you will fry that amp).

The amplifier is only stable to 2 ohms.

Assuming the cubs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils - a 2 ohm load with 2 subs is not possible.

You can only wire up 1 dual 4 ohm voicecoil sub (both positives to amp... and both negatives to amp) to get a 2 ohm mono load.

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.

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!

Hello familia_gome,

If you have 2 subs that are 2 ohms, the final impedance will be either 1 ohm if they are wired in parallel or 4 ohms if they are wired in series. You cannot get a final load of 2 ohms. Unless your amp is stable down to 1 ohm (many amps are not), your best solution would be to wire the subs in series, positive of one sub to the negative of the other sub, and the remaining positive and negative to the amp. Yes, this will result in a 4 ohm load and the amp power will be reduced. But it is better than destroying your amp with too low of a load, and the subs will work fine, just not as loud.

Dual 4 ohm subwoofers can only be wired @ 1 ohm, 4 ohm or 8 ohm.

2 ohm mono load is not possible.

You will need to use (1) subwoofer to get the 1000W out of the amp.

Wire both positives on one sub to + on amplifier and both - on the same sub to - on amplifier to give the amplifier a 2 Ohm load.

Add a second amplifier, or buy an amplifier that is 1 ohm mono stable.

You can wire both to the amplifier at 4 ohms 600W, but they will share the power and only see 300W ea.

Well first of all all solobarics are dual voice coil so you have 2 2ohm voice coils so if you wire them in parallel the sub will be pulling a 1ohm load wich would in time blow out your amp. So you want to wire both voice coils in series to produce a 4ohm load.
