So im looking at an amp for my subs and im not good with electronics at all, but it says its rated at 700rms at 2ohms x1 so if i hook 2 subs does that mean each would recieve 350watts each? or 700 each?
I would guess 700.....maybe??? GOOD QUESTION!! Let me ask you...what size fuse should i run on my power wire? It is a 1500 watt mono 1 channel amp and the amp has 2 80 fuses.Thanks
350 but the subs have to both be 4 ohm if they are both 2 ohm or ones 4 ohm and the other is 2 ohm you cant hook them up safely. if the subs are both 2 ohm thats even worse for the amp because that totals 1ohm and your amp will be ruined eventually
so if your subs are either 4 ohm or 8 ohm you can hook them up the way you want and yes your power cuts in half if you add another sub.
For Jo1, yes each sub will get 700RMS, X2 means 2 subs at 2ohms. For Kicker, always get a bigger fuse on you power wire than the amp fuses, get a 100 amp fuse.
From what ive read you should have an in line fuse 12 to 16 inches from your battery that matches all the fuses located on your amp (ie 2 amps at 40 each would mean an 80 in line) so for yours im guessing a 160 in line but to err on safety you could go with a little under like a 150 amp just to be careful but it could blow if you max it out. but im not fully sure maybe some of the regs might be more experienced in it than i am.
