I have four 2 ohm dual voice coil 12inch kicker L7's. I will be running them on a new BD1000. When the shop installed them they ran it in series. But I know they will be much louder if i run them in parrallel. but is it safe for the woofers and amp. (the bd1000 is a mono amp and 1ohm capable)
Hey i have 2 15'' audiobahn high ex. and they are duel 4 ohm and the only run 2 or 8 ohm and i have an amp that only runs at 4 ohm and right now i have my subs wired up at 4 ohms and i was wondering what is gonna blow first the subs or the amp ( i had the subs hooked up like this for about 3 weeks now )
No, thats not possible, because think of it like this, when your messing with ohms, every time you HALVE an ohm, you DOUBLE your POWER, so if u have taken algebra, or math in general lol, you know that if u keep halving somen you will keep just getting a smaller number, never ever reach zero but get close but keep going, and if u cant reach zero you cant get to negs
Mike, no, .25 ohms is definitely not safe for that amp. I've personally never seen an amp that can go blow .5, and then again they are top quality amps. I've never heard of people running below .5 ohms either. Can you imagine how hot the amp would get running at .25 oms? Why would you even want to try it?
