A dual Voice coil Subwoofer is like having two speakers in one, but the inputs from the amp to the sub must be the same level or you can over-heat the coils. Simply hook the subwoofer to your amplifier as if you had two separate speakers, make sure you get the + and - correct. If there is a level control on the amplifier for Left and Right, be sure to set these at the same level, also if the head unit has a subwoofer output for the amplifier be sure to use this
Hope this Helps GM

Can I wire 2 dual 2ohm subwoofers to a 1ohm load and yes my amp is 1ohm stable I want to get the max rms from my amp


King Chambers,

It would be optimal to have subwoofers that are Dual 4 Ohm. However I am going to tell you the most optimal way to hook up the combination you have to extract the most power out of your amplifier.

You will need to wire each subwoofer in series by taking the positive from one coil on the subwoofer and connecting it to the other voice coil on the same subwoofer; then take the left over positive and negative and hook that to your amplifier.

You will do the same with the other subwoofer. This will give you a 2 ohm load. If you had dual 4 ohm coils then we could get you down to a 1 ohm load.

What's the best way to hook up 2 Hifonics hdl12d4 subwoofers to a mono amp


Ok, your post has two different models listed. Let's start with something you need to know about your amplifier. Is it one ohm or two ohm stable. This will make a difference. Also, whether your subs are single voicecoil (HFI12s4) or dual voice coil (HDI12d4).

Let's start with the easy scenario. Let's say your amp is two ohm stable and you have two single voice coil subs. It's simple. You go from the positive of the amp to the positive of both subs and the negative of the amp to the negative of both subs. This will provide a 2 ohm load to the amplifier, thus pulling all the power out of it.

Unfortunatley, if you have two dual voice coil subs, you won't be as efficient. You will only have the options of a 4 ohm load or a 1 ohm load.

This is where having a one ohm stable amp would come in handy. If the amp is one ohm stable, hook the positive of the amp to all 4 of the positives on the subs, and hook the negative of the amp to all 4 negatives of the subs. This produces a 1 ohm load.

WARNING!! If you have a 2 ohm stable amp DO NOT use the last wiring scenario. It will fry your amp.

Now, the last is a little trickier. This is for two dual 4 ohm subs. Follow closely. Hook the positive of the amp to one of the positives of each sub. (do the next step to both subs) Go from the negative of the voice coil that you hooked positive from the amp is hooked to, and hook that to the positive of the unused voice coil. Then go from the negative of that voice coil and hook to the negative of the amp. Make sure this is done on both subs. This will give you a 4 ohm load.

Hope this helps

  1. Visit the following link: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-jXlGCwReN8E/learn/learningcenter/car/subwoofers_wiring.html
  2. Choose which column your amplifier falls under, then find the number of subs you have, followed by the voice coil configuration.

How to wire lanzar opti1532d dual voice coil 2 ohm


Do you have just one???? If so and your amp can handle a 1 ohm load, hook one voice coil to the other (positive to positive, neg to neg) then bridge it to the amp...If not you will have to take the positive of one voice coil and the negative of the other and bridge it to your amp....The other hot of one voice coil and neg of the other needs hooked together (jumperwire). That will give you a 4 ohm load.

off the same amp? you have two way different sounding speakers man. you can buy 2 identical speakers from the same company and brand and series and they will play differently every time. you have 2 speakers with nothing in common so you will hear a difference and maybe interference because of the different ohm levels.

How do you hook up 2 15 inch cvr to 1 ohm


Hello juanelreypla,

If your CVR's have dual 2 ohm voice coils, they can only be wired for 0.5 ohm, 2 ohm, or 8 ohm final loads.

http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/woofer_wizard.asp?submitted=true&woofer_qty=2&woofer_imp=3

If they have dual 4 ohm voice coils, they can be wired to a final load of 1 ohm. Wire the voice coils in parallel and then parallel both subs. Like the diagram in Wiring Option #1 shown here.

How to wire it up


your best bet is to go onto www.the12volt.com and find the tab at the top that says subwoofer wiring diagrams. Next go to google and search for audiovox subwoofers and search through. You will definately have no issue if you find the model it will tell you the impedence of the subwoofer. 2 ohm dual voice coil, 4 ohm dual voice coil, 8 ohm dual voice coil. anyway it is a dual voice coil

2 sets of pos. and negs. on 10" infinity reference 1052w


This means you have a dual voice coil sub. It is probably a dual 4 ohm voice coil. If you hook up the left channel to one input and the right to the other you can safely push the sub but the amp will be running at a lower efficency. In other words it isn't the best amp for the job because it can't push max power to a dual voice coil speaker but it will work.
