2 ohm amp to 2 10 inch dual coil 4 ohm subs how does it need to be wired

Is the amp a single channel? If so, the only way to connect the subs (without overloading the 2 ohm stable amp) is to wire each sub's voice coils in parallel (2 ohm) and then connecting the subs in series (4 ohms). If the amp is two channel, the subs can have their voice coils connected in parallel (as before) and then each sub connected to its own channel.

What's a dual voice coil sub?

Dual voice coil subwoofer has two separate voice coils, offering more flexibility in system wiring than a standard sub. The DVC sub can be wired in three different configurations: parallel, series, or independent. This way, you can wire the subwoofer according to your system design and preferences.

What kind of amp to buy for an alumapro 10 inch sub 4ohm 250watts rms?

Is your sub single or dual voice coil. This will also make a difference in choosing amps. Pretty much any amp that will supply your required power will do. But, if you have a single voice coil sub, you will be wanting to look for RMS power at 4 ohms. If you have a dual 4 ohm voice coil sub, you can wire it to a 2 ohm load. Then you will need to search for amps that supply the RMS requirements of the sub at 2 ohms. The choices are almost endless. I am an RE Audio dealer, so I absolutely know that they will do you well. Hope this helps.

I have 1 audio bahn eternal series awes15p 15inch subwoofer.I'm having problems hooking it in my vehicle,I don't have the wiring manual.I would appreciate if you can tell me or give me a...

There are some things to think about when you install this.

1. Is the sub a dual or single voice coil?
2. What ohms are the voice coils?
3. Is your amp 2 channel or mono?
4. What are the ohms loads allowed by your amp?

I am going to assume your sub is dual 4 ohm and you want to get as much power out of your amp as you can. I am also assuming the amp is a mono channel amp. (if it's a two channel amp, you can bridge the channels)

Go from the positive of your amp and wire to both positives of the voice coils. Then go from the negative of the amp to the negative of both voice coils. You will have 2 sets of wires to your sub. This is called a parallel set up. This drops the load of one dual 4ohm sub to a 2 ohm load. The lower the resisitance, the more power is able to flow from your amp, giving your more sound. Make sure your amp is 2 ohm stable.

Hope this helps

I have a alpine type r 15 inch it has two hook ups i cant figure it out i have positive two pos and neg two neg and it keeps cuting out one bridge two amp plz help plz plz

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

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.

How do i wire mtx 9500 subs 2 10'' down to a one ohm

THE T9510-04 SUBS ARE SINGLE COIL SUBS AND YOU CAN VIEW THAT WIRING DIAGRAM AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:
http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/subwoofers/TechData_T9510-04.pdf

THE T9510-44 SUBS ARE DUAL VOICE-COIL SUBS AND YOU CAN VIEW THAT WIRING DIAGRAM AT THE FOLLOWING LINK:
http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/subwoofers/TechData_T9510-44.pdf

SINCE YOU NEED A 1 OHM LOAD, I PRESUME BRIDGED AND ARE USING TWO SUBS, THEN HOPEFULLY YOU HAVE THE DUAL VOICE COIL TYPE, AS THEY ARE DUAL 4 OHM AND YOU WILL HAVE TO CONNECT THE VOICE-COILS IN PARALLEL WHICH WILL MAKE EACH SPEAKER A 2 OHM SPEAKER AND THEN CONNECT THE TWO SPEAKERS THEMSELVES IN PARALLEL AND THIS WILL PROVIDE YOU THE 1 OHM LOAD. IF YOU IN FACT HAVE THE SINGLE 4 OHM VOICE COIL VERSION, THEN IT WILL ONLY PARALLEL THE PAIR DOWN TO 2 OHMS. OK. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

How do i wire two 15 inch subs to 2 ohms

Hello familia_gome,

Those MOFO-15's have dual 1ω voice coils. So the only way you can get 2 of them to present a 2ω load is to use 1 voice coil on each one with the two of them wired in series. Using both voice coils, you can get a 1/4ω load by wiring the voice coils in parallel and then wiring the subs themselves in parallel. You'll get a 1ω load with the voice coils in series and then parallel the subs. Or you'll get a 4ω load with both the voice coils and the subs in series.

Here's a link to Power Acoustik's PDF for the MOFO's. I recommend that you check out the wiring diagrams on page 3.

Hope this helps.
