I am thinking about purchasing either the Audiobah Alum12Q or the Kicker L7 subs.
The problem that I am having is, I noticed that the Audiobahn run at 6 ohm. Can I still run the subs at 1 ohm and if so what does this affect. Also, can an amp running at 1 ohm power more that one subwoofer.
I have it in my head that a mono amp at 1 ohm can only power one sub.
A mono can power more than 1 sub, but it would be hard to run 2 subs at 1 ohm unless you wired them at .5 ohm's each. What amp are you looking at, and the audiobahn's are difficult sub's to match up with an amp becuse of there 6 ohm's. The Kicker's will be easer to get the right amount of power.
well first of all a dual 6ohm sub can only be run at 3ohms or 12 ohms so with just one sub it isnt possable to show your amp a one ohm load. For your second ? you can run 50 subs off of a mono amp providing it has the power to power them and you run the voicecoils in a way that it would give you a 1ohm or more load and providing that your mono amp is stable at 1ohm which I am assuming it is or else why would you be inquiring about 1ohm loads. Your other options to get a 1ohm load are to buy two dual 6ohm subs and run them in parellel/parellel at 1.5ohms or get three of them and run the the same way at 1ohm.
yes it can if you wire 3-dual 6ohm subs in parellel/parellel whalla you get a 1-ohm load my friend. Trust me man I had 3-jl10w6's and I could have run them at 4ohms series/parellel or 1ohm parellel/parellel.
