Parallel will put more of a load on the amp = more watts. You can run any ohms just don't go under 1ohms. The higher the ohms the less watts the amp will push.Don't hook it up bridged and then hook the other speaker up to the first one. When the amp is bridged it's using both channels as one. Hooking the other speaker up to the first one will drop the ohms down on that side more and could burn one channel out.
If your amp supports tri-way, then it's possible to use it as bridged and still use channels 1 and 2. However, it'll require you to buy a non polarized capacitors for speakers on channels 1 and 2, and a coil for the sub.
Isaac you mind explaining it in laymans terms? lol. I dont know what tri-way means. The amp is a Audiobahn A8002T. I have a cap 1.5F but I dont know if thats what your referring to. So Donald ur saying that any ohm above 1 is ok? then what does 2 ohm stable mean and matter? thanks guys for all the help
"2 ohm stable" means that your amplifier is rated to run with a 2 ohm impedance load, the less impedance meand less resistance, and more power. BUT too low a resistance load will burn your amp straight to hell, so wire your woofers for 2 ohms or above (higher ohm rating)
Some amps are stable @ 2ohms each channel but not bridged. Most amps bridge @ 4ohms. Then some amps are bridged @ 2ohms. It should tell you on the amp or in manual. To be safe I would not go under 2 ohms.
NateJ, that amp can do tri-way. It means you can connect 2 speakers to the left and right channels as well as a sub in the bridged mode. To do this, you have to attach a capacitor to each speaker, and a coil to the sub. It's in the amp's manual. If you don't have it, download it from Audiobahn's website. The 1.5F capacitor is for the amp. The capacitor I'm talking about is for your speakers. It acts as a filter/crossover.
but I only have 2 speakers isaac. I think ill jus hook them 4 ohm. Thanks guys for all the help.
