Hi, I was hoping someone would help me out - Im bladdy useless when it comes to sounds. Ive got a couple of JL W0 4's. Ive just purchased a Rockford 551x amp, which I got dirt cheap. Anywho, I just realised that this amp is way to powerful for the subs. I need some advice. I realise that if I wire the subs up at 4 ohm, the output would be 70w - would that be ok, bearing in mind that the rms for the subs are 125w? If I was to wire then up in 2 ohm mode, the output goes up to 140w, which sounds far more appealing. However, like I said, Im very ignorant when it comes to sounds. How would I go about wiring these subs to run at 2 ohm, if it is possible? Please help...... Cheers
Thanks for your help guys. Just one more thing - how would I go about wiring the subs to run at 2 ohm - is it possible? You have to pardon my stupidity, as I keep on saying, I dont know anything bout ICE.
The 12W0 is a potent 12-inch subwoofer designed to extract maximum performance from small to moderate power levels. Highly flexible in its application, this speaker works extremely well in sealed, ported and even bandpass designs.
Ok let me break it down for you if your powering two 125 watt rms subs you need an amp thats at least pushing 250 watts rms at 4 ohms i beleive, they are dual voice coil? the amp you have is only pushing about have of 275. you want to look at rms rating not peak or max power.
