Question about AudioBahn 400w E Car Speaker
I just put in 4 cvr 10's to a 1500 RF after one week, today i had to power all the way up to engage the subs, i also live in a very cold and high area. what do you think is going on?
Your amp may be on it's way out due to an overload situation. When connecting speakers in parallel, calculate the total impedance (load on the amp) by dividing the ohms of one speaker by the total number of speakers, assuming they’re all the same. When in series, add them up.
If you go below the ohm rating of the amp (say, you connect 4 speakers in parallel and they’re each rated at 4 ohms, the total load is 1 Ohm and amp is rated at 2 ohms), you going to blow the amp eventually. When in doubt, connect in series. You won’t get as much sound, but at least you’ll still have an amp to power them!
In your case, you can use a series/parallel connection. This means using the speakers in pairs. Connect the + of one speaker to the - of another, and use the remaining + and - to connect to the amp, and do the same for the other pair. Make sure you connect each pair exactly the same.
You can try this now and see what happens. Hopefully the amp isn't too far gone and connecting in series/parallel will help, but if it doesn't, then you'll need to get your amp fix and be more careful next time.
Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!
