i have just bought two 12" Cerwing Vega V-max subs, i am really new to all of this car audio stuff and i have no idea what kind of amp that i need. Here is the site with all the information on the subs that i have
Just different impedances. The SVCs are 4 ohm and the DVCs are dual 4 ohm, meaning the DVCs can be wired for a 2 ohm load, two SVCs will present a 2 ohm load in parallel and two DVCs will present a 1 ohm load when wired in parallel.
SVC mean single voice coil. DVC means dual voice coil. Vmax's use voice coils with 4 ohm impedance(kinda like resistance). Your subs are strictly 4 ohms but the dvc version can be wired either as a 2 ohm or 8 ohm sub. Since you have the 4 ohm version you're really limited to an amp that produces its best power into a 2 ohm load(your subs wired in parallel).
You can if you want, but you've got limited choices either way you go. The subs you have now would "require" a monoblock stable to 2 ohms, a 2 channel stable to 2 ohms bridged(1 ohm stereo), or a 4 channel amp stable to 4 ohms bridged(2 ohm stereo). With a pair of the DVC's you'd need a monoblock stable to 1 ohm or a regular 2 channel stable to 4 ohm bridged(2 ohm stereo).
Lotsa numbers, huh. I think you're ok with what you have. There's plenty of monoblock amps out there that peform well into a 2 ohm load. Thats what I'd be looking for. Didn't I give you a list of a few in another thread?
yeah you did, but i was wondering what the different between DVC and SVC were and i was wondering if i went with one sub or another if i would have more options on the selection of an amp, but you said that either way i do no have a big selection?
