I wouldnt hook this up to most of you guys amps. =D
I got dual 2ohm subs now all already wired!! Exchange my old ones in, now I got new ones. I love warranties. Yeah baby....

im positive i wired them correct. =D
box is tuned to 27hz also.

where did you get that ohm reader..and how much was it...and can that also tell how many watts the amp can play?

nevermind..radioshack...but does it tell watts?

no but you can calculate watts. lol
its a electricians best friend buddy. this is just my cheap one. lol

Okkkkkk, so what ya trying to say, that you can rig a box for .5ohm? So what's your point, do you have an amp that will run it? Are you using multiple boxes orrrrrrr? Or are you showing that the coils aren't accurately constructed? Give us a hint because there is nothing you have in your systems list that will run that load..Polo. :-)

didn't someone say a while back that one of the old orion amps would handle that kinda load?

well, I do not think that unit is wrong, 2 dual subs will give you .5ohm load , it is ran parralel. each sub will load either 1ohm or 4ohm... and the old school orions handle .5ohm stereo load.

yup .5 ohms stereo and 1 ohm mono. The soundstream reference series amps can handle the same load.

He can just use 2 1 ohm stable amps...

I am talking about his amp list in his profile, none of those will run a .5 ohm in any confg. I believe an Orion HCCA can run a .25 ohm load, VERY underated @4ohms, lol. :-O

polo the hint is about 3200 rms matched to an impedence of .5 ohm load!!!!

Hmmmmm, you gona pump 3200rms into two subs rated at 500rms each? Go figure..

Cheap stamped baskets means more money spent on parts that matter :-)

Optidriven, Polo doesnt know anything.. He is just being a chap! lol
He need to go back and read the site he tells people to read: http://www.bcae1.com/speakrat.htm

Bottom Line:
No one can tell you if you will blow your speakers with a given amplifier. They may be able to tell you whether or not a pair of speakers will be able to handle a given amount of continuous RMS power. But... since they don't know your listening habits or your ability to hear (or even be concerned about) distortion, they (in my opinion) cannot actually tell you if a given amplifier (with you at the volume control) will blow your speakers.

Now im I still goin to blow my subs? OK
like Optidriven said "stamp baskets means more money spent on real parts the matter"

FYI the basket is powerder coated....

or does he think they wont do it?? << but who careS?
Treo will till you run 1K to each all day. And thats moderate..

Cause ive seen them with double what im about to give them! Playing all day every day!

They were even tested 4KW, for 2 hrs each day, guess what? they lasted 1 month!

Thats whats make a GOOD company, some people have alot to learn. =D

the only problem I see is that you're measuring DCR, not impedance. The DCR should be lower than the nominal impedance of the circuit.

I use a pair of dual 2 ohm coil subs myself, but I wired each sub with coils in series, and use a bridged amplifier on each sub at 4 ohms. I don't like running ultra low impedances on amplifiers.
It leaves very little in the way of head room, and increases heat and distortion, and decreases the SNR and damping.

The only real benefit you get is the added power and the cost of SQ.

yea its DC resistance. Im going to be runing @ .5ohms for competitions & daily! Im doin it for the benefit of the added power like you said. =D

Glasswolf Im not worried about the amp being able to handle it, cause its been tested & proven daily @ .5ohms without any major change in operating temperature. The amp also will be able to drop to .34ohm for burps at competitions..

If i set my gain low/boost and watch the hu, play with the eq, I think my SQ wont be bad at all!
Im just goin to have to be more responsible and attentive to the setup. It goin to be a STEET POUNDER!

=D

And in case you don't have this rule in place already:

NOBODY touches the volume but you! haha
