I'm going to be hooking up an Infinity 12 DVQ 4 ohm dual voice-coil sub along with an Infinity perfect 10.1 4 ohm sub to a Kicker 600.1. If I wire them up normally, it'd give a 1.33 ohm load...not good.
Is it okay to hook up just ONE of the voice coils on the DVQ, so it's just 4 ohms, then the 10.1 is 4 ohms, so I'm running a 2 ohm load on the amp?
What he's trying to tell you, and so am I, is that it isn't a good idea. Besides that, you shouldn't mix subs period. All subs dont sound the same, nor do they have the same power handling, etc... That's gonna be one phucced up system if you ignore the advice given
IT WILL SOUND LIKE STRAIGHT S$#T. Trust me. Dont mix sizes and sub brands. Even different sub models from same brand. Each sub is unique with its q. In other words how accurately it hits the with actual music. If you mix a 10 and a 12 they wont drop at the same time. So do your self a favor, save up and buy a 2nd 12 or a 2nd 10. Dont mix subs. and you will be fine. Oh also if you mix an uneven ohm. like a 4 ohm dvc and a 2dvc it will make power unstable which can equal blowing the subs and frying the amp.
