I recently purchased 2 eclipse sw-6123.4 subs and they are 200w rms 4ohm svc, and i want to get the most out of them. How do I hook them up? Is it possible to hook them up to a mono 400rms amp and split the load between the subs? or do i have to use a 2 channel amp that is 200x2 at 2ohms? or 200x2 at 4 ohms?
a mono amp means you'll be wiring the subs together for a single load - with a pair of svc4's your options are series for 8 ohms, or parallel for 2 ohms. 8 ohms is not a very practical impedance for car speakers/amps. You're looking for something around 400w at 2 ohms. What's your budget?
