How do I hook up my two kicker comp Vr 12" 2ohms to my Zapco I-2100 Amp 2 channel? I looked at the diagrams to hook up the subs to the amp and the ohms ways and I m totally confused!

Dual Voice Coil Subwoofers

Dual voice coil subwoofers are becoming a popular choice among car audio enthusiasts who want more flexibility in wiring their sound systems. While typical subwoofers have a single voice coil, dual voice coil (DVC) subwoofers use two separate voice coils, each with its own connections, mounted on one cylinder, connected to a common cone.

The key difference between single and dual voice coil subwoofers is the multiple wiring options DVC subs offer:
Parallel: A dual 4-ohm voice coil subwoofer with its coils wired in parallel presents a 2-ohm load to your amplifier. Since an amplifier produces more wattage at a lower impedance, the parallel connection ensures you'll get the most output from your amp. In the same fashion, if you have a stereo amplifier and two DVC subs, wire both subs for 2-ohm impedance (one per channel) for maximum output.


Series: Series wiring lets you configure multiple woofers to one amplifier at an acceptable impedance. Wire both coils in series for an 8-ohm impedance, and then wire two 8-ohm subs together in parallel for 4-ohm total impedance (perfect for most 2-channel amps bridged to mono operation). Another example: if you have a high-powered 2-channel amplifier, wire four 8-ohm subs per channel (each channel sees a 2-ohm load).


Independent: You can wire each voice coil to a separate channel of your amplifier, if you prefer not to bridge your amp. Independent wiring is a nice option if you're wiring two DVC subs to a 4-channel amplifier -- one voice coil per channel.

That's how you wire for a 2ohm sub right?

Stereo, 4 ohms: 2 x 100 Watts
Stereo, 2 0hms: 2 x 175 Watts
Mono, 4 ohms: 1 x 350 Watts
T.H.D. : <0.3%
Frequency Response: 10 - 25KHz
S/N Ratio: >90dB
Channel Separation: >50dB

God I should have just waited and bought ednine1. amp instead. Damn what a weak amp to power my comp vrs. But it says on the info: Bridgeable 2-channel amp so doesnt that mean it's stable?

Well I went and exchanged the 2ohm subs to 4ohms. They said with that amp and wiring it series/parellel I would be getting 400 watts a sub.

because u have tot ake it out of context, its 2 cahnnels right, and tis bridgable, but ONLY bridgable to 4 ohms stable, but with that amp YOU WILL NEVER get 400 watts rms to each sub, you wire each sub in parralel to a separate channel to get 175 watts rms to each sub, thats the best you can do, i would return the amp
