say you have a two channel amp. Ratings are 50x2 @4ohms and 100x2 @2ohms.. so how do you wire speakers to 2 ohms? I see how its done but wouldnt this just put me back down to 50watts per speaker again. Its like sneaking in two more speakers....
somenoe help me i have a 800watt sony amp ....well that is what is says on top but the problem i am having is that it is over heating and pukeing out on me but i cut it off for like 30 seconds and turn it on it works fine this is the way i have it wired......... i have it bridged.....but i am running 2 MTX 10"s i am not real sure of the model # on the subs can some one tell me what i am doing wrong i think it is the load i am putting on it......... it only shuts down when loud listening
dont barge in on someone else's thread. create your own.
it sounds like your amp is overheating and going into protection. is your amp hot when it turns off? what is the model # of ur subs, and are Dual voice coil 2 ohm or 4 ohm? what is the model # on ur amp?
thanks....Understandable yes I would hook up (2) 2ohm subs to each channel, However my goal is to hook up (4) 6x9s. each 6x9 is a 4 ohm, so wiring them like pic above would achive a two ohm load on amp, thus it would deliver the 100 watts. Now each 6x9 speaker would only see half of that 100 watts, like 50 watts each. Now If I just hooked up (2) 6x9s rated at 4ohms One to each channel, they would receive 50 watts each. I dont know of any 2ohm single voice coil 6x9 speakers. My goal is to install 4 speakers instead of 2. Providing amp is 2ohm stable. P = E2/R p=13.6*13.6/2ohm p=92.48 /2 p=46.24 watts each
" I dont know of any 2ohm single voice coil 6x9 speakers."
Infinity Kappa's are 2 ohm, and I believe their '06 reference lineup is as well.
"I have one New 06' square l7 kicker that is 4ohms. And then I have a new memphis mono amp that is rated at 1100rms. What is the best way of hooking this up can someone help please, I need to bang....."
What is the model numbers of your sub and amp? If the sub is DVC 4 Ohm then wiring in parallel will present a 2 ohm load. Depending on your amp model, you may or may not get all 1100 at 2 ohms.
To wire in parallel:
^ ^ Connect the + on one voice coil to the + on the other vc. Then connect the - of one to the - of the other.
^ ^ Then connect the + of one VC to the box, and the - of the other VC to the box.
