A normal wiring setup to produce a 4-ohm load is what you usually see - each speaker is wired to one channel of the amp. This is series wiring. To get a 2-ohm load, you need to wire in parallel. Here's how:

Take sub A and wire the positive terminal to the positive terminal of channel 1 on the amp. Wire the negative terminal of sub A to the negative terminal of channel 2 on the amp. For sub B, it's the opposite - positive terminal of sub B to the positive terminal of channel 2, and the negative to the negative terminal of channel 1. That's parallel wiring, and will produce the 2-ohm loading (and subsequent increase in output) that you're seeking.

Alpine x is not reading proper ohm resistance amps blew


the gmax amps are only 2ohm stable. it is odd that they both blew at the same time but if the impedence is too low to amps will fail.dual 4ohm dvc subs wired in parallel should read around 2ohms. allthought impedence varies with frequency and isnt truly stable.

I want to know the best subwoofer wiring diagram for three kicker cvr 10 inch subs, 2 of them are dvc 4 ohm and 1 is dvc 2 ohm, the amp that i am using is jl audio 500.1 1.5-4ohms stable. can anyone help...


if the amp has a 2 outputs then i would wire the two 4ohms together, and the 2ohm by itself. and if its a 4 channel output then wire them all sepretly, if its a 1 channel output then wire the two 4ohms together and leave the 2ohm sub out

How many svc subs at 4ohm does it take to get this amp to 1ohm stable and can you reccomend a good sub combo for this amp whether it be dvc or svc


It depends if your sub is 4ohm svc, or 2ohm svc. 4ohm would take 4 subs wired in parallel, 2ohm would take 2 subs wired in parallel. But for a amp that big, subs that'll handle it are definitely gonna be dvc. I'd recommend 2 Orion 4ohm dvc hcca's. They come in either 15in or 12in. the 15s are louder if you have the space for them. As far as wiring goes, wire the voice coils on the subs in parallel to 2ohm per sub, then wire the 2 subs in parallel to 1ohm. Goodluck and congrats on the equipment, Orion is about as good as you can go for subs and amps. just be ready to lay down some dynamat cuz this system'll bloww your vehicle apart! good luck...

How do i bridge 2-4ohm dvc's to a mono block


If you have a DVC 4ohm speaker, and you are using both voice coils, the amp is seeing a 2ohm load.
If you bridge the amp, you CAN run both subs as long as the amp is Two Ohms Stable.
Wire each subs voice coils in parallel.(Positive to positve, neg to neg.) (2ohms) each.
Then wire the two subs in series.(Neg from amp to neg of sub one, pos of sub one to neg of sub two. then pos of sub two to pos of amp.

If it sounds too hard, leave it as you are already running the amp at two ohms.

Wiring options


Hello chino2g,

For 3 DVC 4 ohm subs wired to a 2 ohm stable amp, your best option would be to wire all of the sub voice coils in series (individual 8 ohm loads) and then parallel the three subs for a final load of 2.67 ohms. There's really no other configuration. Here's the wiring diagram:

I have a Pioneer GM-5300T amp wired to a 10 inch kicker sub. The music plays throughout the speakers of my car but the sub goes in and out. I noticed that the amp's power light dims when the sub goes in...


Hello pburgfootbal,

You do not specify which Kicker sub you have or how it is wired to the amp. The GM-5300T is only stable to 4ohms in bridged mode and if your sub is a 4ohm DVC with the coils in parallel, it presents a 2ohm load. If the sub is 2ohm DVC with the coils in parallel, the load is only 1ohm. Either configuration would be too low of an impedance for the amp in bridged mode. I'd check the sub specifications and make sure that the wiring configuration properly matches it to the amp.

Hope this helps.

Mono amp to a 4ohm dvc sub


Hello joverstre525,

Sure, just wire both voice coils in parallel to the amp output terminals. The "wiring wizard" here shows the possible wiring options.

Hope this helps.

Wiring options for amp


Te dual inputsm are tied together on the output side thus having a "MONO" amp. Most class D anps are stable down to 1 ohm (check your manuel) therefore, 2 2ohm subs are a 1 ohm load. 2 DVC (dual voice coil) 4 Ohm on each voice coil will give each sub a 2 ohm load so 2 dual4 ohm V's will give you a 1 ohm load as well. Parrallel all conections.

What subs do you have? Is this amp 1 ohm ono stable?

Wiring


You have 2 subs and 2 amps right?In that case make sure that the amps are capable of stable 1ohm load and also you'll need a lot of power and 4 gauge power cable for each amp with fuse of course.
Now....take one sub and connect the (-) with the (-) and the (+) with the (+).Now you have one (+) and one(-) to connect to the amp.Do the same with the other sub and you're ready to rock!!

Best results


huge shared common space slot loaded box (size depends on sub 10", 12" 15" you need to clarify that please) the amp specs on earthquakes site say the phd5000 is rated at a max output of 5k watts at 1 ohm 3k watts at 2 ohm so, with 3 dvc 2 ohm subs you only have 3 options of which only 2 will be a usable solution:

1. 3- 2ohm dvc series at sub parralel at amp = about 1.33 ohms at the amplifier this is the best option to get the most power to the subs as each sub will produce a 4 ohm load then wire each one to the amp the amp sees 3 4 ohm parralel loads which = 1.33 ohm so based on the amp specs you would be close to 1200 watts per sub.

2. 3- 2ohm dvc wired in series at sub and all 3 subs series wired together very difficult to wireand will give you a 12 ohm load which is next to no power at all (not a viable solution)

3. 2- 2ohm dvc parralel wired to each other and then at amp the amp sees a 1 ohm load and makes 5k watts max but you can only (REREAD THAT LINE! ONLY USE 2 SUBS IN THIS WAY) WHICH GIVES THE MOST POWER BUT ONLY USES 2 SUBS
