Re: how do i hook up the voice coils up to 2ohm stable?
Depends on the impedance of the coils on your subs and if they are single coils or dual coils. If you are trying to achieve a 2 ohm load then a pair of 4 ohm coils in parallel will do the job.If you have dual 4 ohm coils on your subs then you will have to use only one coil from each sub which will still give you the 2 ohm load that you seek but it will affect the power handling of the subs by half as you are only using half of the coils.

OK what you are saying now is that your speakers are dual voice coil; models? 4 Ohms per Coil? I have always used single 4 Ohm Voice ciol speakers since amps are mostly based on 4 Ohm outputs. but you can get 8 Ohm dual voice coil subs also. With 8 Ohms per coil you can get 4 Ohms if you parallel the wires. What is best for you and will get you the most stable power and still will be in the specs of that amp is to run the amp in BRIDGED MODE running each subs voice coils in series with each other then run those 2 subs in parallel to the amplifier giving it a 4 Ohm load. So, your will have two sets of wires from your amp 1 for each speaker. Then you will take a short piece of wire that will connect the + to the - of each voice coil then hook up the wires from your amp to each sub What it will be is 4 Ohms + 4 Ohms = 8 Ohms per speaker the 8 Ohms in parallel each speaker to the Bridged amp output using just the + from one channel and the - from the other will give you a total of 4 ohms and power out put of 600 Watts so that ends up being 150 watts per voice coil or 300 watts each speaker
Ok, for starters. Is your sub a dual 4 ohm sub? If so, great. Is your amp 2ohm stable? If so, then great. If you are running one sub, is your amp a monoblock (single channel) amp? Are you running a two channel amp Your subwoofer is a dual voice coil subwoofer. This means that you have to have power to both voicecoils or risk damaging the voice coils. Subs are designed with dual voice coils to give it more control over the cone movement. This results in better reproduction of sound. Anyway, back to wiring.
This is for a monoblock amp (you can also bridge a 2 channel amp) Go from the positive speaker out of your amp to the positive posts of both voice coils. Then go from the negative speaker out of the amp to both negative posts on the sub. And there you have it. It's called a parallel set up. Setting it up this way just dropped the ohms load for that sub to 2 ohms. Less resistance means more power to the sub. Hope this helps
First you need two 4 ohm speakers or one Dual voice coil speaker. you wire the speakers in parallel bringing the total impeadence to 2 ohms. The amplifier is what has to be 2 ohm stable...check your technical specs on the amp to see if its stable at 2 ohms...not all are. check this
If your sub woofers are SVC (single voice coil) 2 OHM each, then connecting one to each channel would make the amplifier run in 2OHM stereo
Then again, if your sub woofers are 2OHM each, it would be better to connect both together in series and connect them to the BRIDGE specified speaker terminals of your amplifier making it run a 4OHM load into one channel.
This will give you all the power the amp can give and still run stable.
A 2OHM load into one channel will likely damage your amplifier.
Do not forget to set the LPF (low pass filter)on if you are going to use the amplifier to run sub woofer/s.
No it depends on you speaker or sub right now i have one that runs 2ohm up to 8ohm what speaker do you have it will tell you what it can run in the owners manual to the speaker or sub also if you have dual voice coils you may have to wire it a sertain a the manual will also tell you.
Your amp is stable bridged mono at 2ohms, however, having dual 2ohm voice coils will drop the amp to 1ohm if parallel and will kill it. The cleanest possible way to run this amp and keep it cool with lots of headroom is to run the coice coils in series then run the amp in mono @ 4ohms. To do this, run from one voice coil to another, a jumper. connect positive from one voice coil to the neg of the other voice coil. Then connect the remaning positive on one voice coil and the neg from the other voice coil to your amp (positive left and negative right on the amp) If your amp has a switch for momo make sure it is on, some are automatic. Hope this helps
The only way to wire a single 4ohm DVC sub to present a 4ohm load is to just connect one voice coil. If you wire the coils in parallel, you get a 2ohm load. If you wire them in series, you get an 8ohm load. But it will work great with just one voice coil. Or if you really want to use both voice coils, and your amp isn't stable at 2ohms, wire the voice coils in series and present an 8ohm load to the amp. It'll work fine, it just won't deliver quite as much power.
Your sub has dual 2ohm voice coils and can be wired to present a final load to the amplifier of either 1ohm or 4ohms. Unless you have an amp that is stable at 1ohm (not many are), then you will want to use the 4ohm wiring. To wire for 4ohms, jumper the positive terminal of one voice coil to the negative of the other terminal, and connect the remaining positive and negative terminals to your amp. If you know for SURE that your amp is stable at 1ohm, you can connect both positives and both negatives together on the sub and then to the amp. But if the amp 1ohm stable, this will result in overheating, and/or going into "protection" mode, and/or damage to the amp.
The 2 ohm stable rating on the amp is PER channel meaning that you could effectively hook up a 2 ohm speaker or a 2 ohm load to each channel without the amp getting f"d up-butin bridged mode it will only be 4 ohm stable. to achieve a 4 ohm load with your sub the type x wire the coils in series that will get you at 4 ohms to run in bridged mono .But you will get the exact same amount of power if you wire each coil to one channel of the amp as bridged mono sees the sum of your 2 ohm channels combined-Hope that helps.
