Stupid question?


for an amp... is a dual 2-ohm impedance the same as 4-ohm impedance on a sub????

an amp puttin out
800 watts rms @ 4-ohm and
600 watts rms @ 2-ohm
... would the sub be gettin 800 or 600 watts rms???

wait. are u talking DVC or SVC? and whats the impedance of each coil?

Unregistered guest
dual 2 ohm voice coils can be wired to 4 ohms or 1 ohm.

Dvc..... i just used random examples.. but i have a sub with dual 2-ohm coils... so thats equal to 4-ohms to an amp.. correct?

if u wire the coils in a series. But if you wire them in parallel then it will equal 1 ohm.

the amp usually puts out more power at lower ohms though. it can be. if the sub was wired to 4 ohms rms it would get the 800 watts. if you ran your sub parallel to 1 ohm, you will kill your amp because there is too much power running through it and it will overheat and fry and in the process it will screw up your sub
