alright. well in an earlier post someone said to buy a 2 ohm or 4 ohm sub depending on the ohm of my amp. what are ohms? and if i have a 1000watt 2 channel amp. what ohm would it be? and what ohm should i get my sub in? i'm not real sure what this stuff is.
very basically, ohm refers to impedence or resistance. a amp running at 1ohm is wide open so to speak and produces more power than it would at 2 or 4ohms (generally). however,it stands a greater chance of running hot and possible failure. not all amps are 1ohm stable and lower. speakers are wired in such a way to take advantage of different amps. here is a great link from which to study. http://www.bcae1.com/
