It just depends on how it is wired, so you can get different amounts of power from you're amp. An amp might put out 250 watts rms at 4 ohms, then at 2 ohms it will put out 500 watts rms, then if the amp is 1 ohm stable, it will push 1000 watts rms at 1 ohm.
I thought its better to have a more Ohm sub isnt it?
hi, i am new to this and dont know alot about this stuff but i want to put 3 alpine 12"R class subs in my car but do i go with a 2-ohm sub or a 4 ohm sub to go along with the alpine mrd-m1005 amp or is there a better amp(s)i should go with to get the most out of my subs?
there actually is a difference in 2 ohm or 4 ohm VCs. some of the specifications are slightly different. one may be more efficient over the other. but its a slight difference. if youve noticed RE doesnt put out specs on the MT because there are so many different VC configurations and they have all different specs.
and scott... if you have 3 subs you will come out to a weird ohm load. ex like 2.67 isnt a regular ohm load. also. a 1000w alpine amp is not anough for 3 type X subs. try the type Rs and either get 2 of them or 4 ad 2 1000w amps. or of course 2 type x's and 2 1000 w amps
yes 1000w rms 3000w peak and could u give me an ide on what amp to go with for the 2 x class subs? pref a 2 channel so i dont need to go with 2 amps. i was thinking legicy 2400w 2 channel because its cheep but alot of people said dont get it bacause its crap so any sugestions would be helpfull.
"u chose stuff based on WRMS not max" - should have been typed out - u have to choose stuff based on WRMS & NOT Max ratings .....
Also i might add u choose subs based on what ohm configuration that your amp can push ......
I have a 2000 watt max peak on both subs combiend a 500RMS raiting on each so i went safe with a 1200 watt amp about 600RMS i didnt wana push it to the point where i over did anything now looking back 800RMS woulda been nice tho lol.
hehe i am in a electronics class atm we r starting to get into this stuff so i decided i want a system in my car thats how all this came about. anyways so i need 2 4-ohm subs and hook them in parallel to make th amp see a 1 ohm load?
