Hi ohms will be selected when an amp is bridged. In the manual it will tell you what ohms it is capable of running at.

    Hi i was wondering why you gave me one thumb "no help" when i answered you question correctly did you need more help because you dont have the manual? you will need to know the ohm's of the speakers you will be hooking up to the amp. two 4ohm subs that is sterio, two 8 ohm subs you run the amp mono, four 4 ohm subs is mono, four 8 ohm subs sterio"quad" let me know if you need help wiring your subs I need to know what ohm they are and how many you will be hooking up and I can explain how to wire them and what ohm you will be running. The amp selects the ohm for you when it is turned on by what ohm sub and how many is wired.

    ok let me try to explain this the amp does not change ohms like a switch on it the speakers have whats called INPIDENCE that are measured in ohms that they can handle, then the amp has the ohms its capable of running at. If you have two 4 ohm single coil subs you run the amp in sterio and it will be matched inpidence with the subs and it will not over heat or shut off

I have a nad 3130 amplifier which has been in storage for sometime. I've plugged it in and I have no power to the amp.


If the fuses are good....do this.....
1...unplug the amp from the wall AND KEEP IT UNPLUGGED !!!
2 Turn the power switch on ( again , the amp is UNPLUGGED from the wall )
3 with an ohm meter or a multimeter set on ohms., measure the ohms across the ac cord that plugs into the wall....in other words...take one meter lead and touch it to only one " blade" that plugs into the wall and keep it touching the " blade".....while you are holding it there, touch the other meter lead to the other " blade " that plugs into the wall.....you should get a very low ohm reading ( 2-50 ohms )......if it is over that number, your transformer or your switch is open ( toast ). hopefully it is the switch as transformers are un-available......good luck, be safe, and if you arent sure....ask before doing something silly.....Rob

4-8 ohm output


it is load resistance. set the amplifier switch to the resistance ( X amount ohms) to match your speakers. Although running 4 ohm speakers at the 8 ohm setting is louder, it will hurt your amp
most home/semi pro speakers are 8 ohm, while car speakers are 4 ohm. If you are doing a multi speaker pa/intercom install use your formula to calculate total load is 2 8 ohm speakers in parallel are four ohms . express them as fractions and add the denominator ie:8/1 +8/1 = 8/2 or 4/1 or 4. now connect that in series (add the top numbers)with another 2 speakers in parallel and you get back to 8 ohm load. repeat the same process over and over and you can hook up to 32 speakers to the amp without needing the 70 volt tap. hope this helped.

I have a budda superdrive 30 II amp and have a setting question. I made a 2-12 cabinet to hook to this amp. Each speaker is 4 ohms. They are wired to their own output jack. My amp has 2 outputs for...


You best rewire the cabinet to put the two speakers in series. Wire one speaker plus to minus of the other and bring the other lead, one from each speaker to your jack on the cabinet. The amp output impedance is what is set on the switch... for two 8 ohm speakers you would use both jacks to the two speakers BUT ssince you have 4 ohm speakers the ONLY option is for two in series and set the switch to 8 ohms. The amp is ONLY 30 Watts so don't expect too much sound output... You should get a nice CLEAN sound at a reasonable level. If you drive the amp too hard it will clip and you will get garbage.

We installed the amp and bass package and the subs are not nowhere near *** powerful we think its the amp and when the remote bass switch when we turn it it doesnt change


what product brand did you install. do you set the amps x-over and gains a sub sonic filter right
need to see if the amp is on check led light on amp. make sure your subs ohm load is correct for the amp.

let us an example fake amp 500x2channel max output 1000watts

if you wire your subs at 4 ohms you 250x2 rms stereo
if you wire your subs at 2 ohms you 500x2 rms stereo
if you wire your subs at 4 ohm mono you get 1000 watts

if you have the input voltage of 14.4 all the time at the amp

whats the equipment power

How to setup my fli900s amp ,just wont to know how to get the best sound out of it


In order to get the bass you want, you'll run your amp switched as a two channel amp and you'll need to run your subwoofers in 4 ohm Mono that's 450 x 2 to give you 900 watts of power.

2, 2 ohm dual voice coils ran in series and bridged on the amp for each sub.

Otherwise, Single Voice Coil 4 ohm subwoofers bridged to amp.

ONE OHM STABLE 2500W MAX POWER AMP DIAGRAM ON 2


For a 1ohm load it's positive to positive and negative to negative run 1 wire from one speaker to the other. Positive to positive neg to neg. Then 1 wire from the speakers to the amp. The amp will have + - + - on it's inputs for left and right speakers (if stereo) Use the outside positive and outside negative. If there are any switches on the amp that say "mono" "stereo" switch to "mono". Hope this helps
