Can a soundstorm F2500D handle a subwoofer impedence of 1.7 ohms?? My two 10inch JBL subwoofers are hitting at an impedence of 1.7ohms i was told to get an amp that is 1ohm stable and im wondering if the Soundstorm F2500D is a true 1ohm stable amp?

Hello sincere4140,

The Soundstorm is stable only to 2ohms.

Hope this helps.

Wireing diagrams for a pair of 12" jbl gt1200D grandtouring subwoofers JBL Grand Touring Series GTO1200D 12" subwoofer with dual 4-ohm voice coils

Check crutch fields website for sub wiring it's really straight forward depending on the desired impedance.

What kind of amp can adequately power P112 S8 subs

you shouldnt run it at 8 ohm it shows what ohms it can handle . to run it at 1 ohm you would need 2 subs to do this. and no i wouldnt run an 8 ohm sub on the amp.

How to hook it up for one ohm

oh yes the JBL GTi W15GTI Mkll. this subwoofer is a dual 6 ohm voice coil subwoofer. This is impossible to run this sub alone and get 1 ohm you will need another JBL GTi W15kll. the lowest impedance you can go to is 3 ohms. you can achieve this by connecting the positive terminals together and then running a wire from the two positives to the positive terminal on the amp. then connecting the negative terminals together and then running a wire to the negative terminal on the amp. this is a real nice sub it just has that one down fall of having a six ohm voice coil.

Hi can you tell me that impedence on JBL TLx4 speakers- i need to know if they are compatible with my denon RCD M37 dab player thanks

hi,
Is it JBL TLX 420 then its impedance is 4OHMS. You cant connect these speakers to denon rcd m 37, because its output impedence is 6 to 16 ohms.
ok

I have 2 positives and 2 negatives on back of my alphasonik sub, do i connect amp to one side or both sides?

Hello gaz69,

Your PSW815 has 2 ohm dual voice coils allowing you to better match the impedance to your amp. Each voice coil is 2 ohms. If you wire them in parallel (both +'s together and both -'s together and then to the amp terminals), the sub presents a 1 ohm load which is too low for most amps. Wiring the voice coils in series (one + to the other - and the remaining + and - to the amp terminals) results in a 4 ohm load.

This link shows the wiring diagram for both options. If you know for sure that your amp is 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #1. If the amp is not 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #2.

Hope this helps.

Finding the best amplifier

Hello sharky75,

That 1600 watt peak power figure for your subwoofer can't tell you what amp you need. You need to know the maximum RMS power the sub can handle. And you need to know the impedance (ohms) of the voice coil(s). JBL GT5 series subs have an RMS rating of 275 watts. The GTO series handles 300 watts. The Power series handles 400 watts. The GTi series handles 700 watts. Some are single voice coil, so the impedance is fixed. Others are dual voice coil allowing you to wire them for different impedance loads.

For maximum performance your amp should be able to provide at or near the same number of watts RMS into the lowest impedance at which the sub can be configured. For example, if your sub is the Power Series Model number P1224, it has dual 4ohm voice coils and can be wired to present either a 2ohm load (parallel) or an 8ohm load (series). You want to wire the voice coils in parallel for the 2ohm load and select an amp that outputs up to 400 watts RMS into 2ohms. The Orion Cobalt CO8001 is just such an amp. If you have one of the GTi Series subs, a better amp would be the JVC Arsenal KS-AR75 which outputs 700 watts into 2ohms.

Hope this helps.

When i connect both subs(jbl gt 1041d) my amp goes to protection and when i ony hook one up it doesnt go to protection

Hello lilcylentsur,

It sounds like when you connect both subs, the impedance match is too low for the amp to handle. 2 4-ohm DVC subs with both the coils and subs wired in parallel will present a 1-ohm load which is too low for most amps.

The solution is to wire the voice coils in series, (connect a short jumper from one positive to the other negative on each sub). and then wire the remaining terminals to your amp. This will result in a 4-ohm load which most amps can handle.

Here's a "wiring wizard" which allows you to see the ohm loads of different wiring configurations.

Hope this helps.
