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....Upload

if you wanted to wire it to 2 ohms, you would wire it like you said... so you would get 100 watts each channel.

no ur amp will see a 2ohm load and put out 100x2, or 100rms per channel

ya 100 per channel but split between the two speakers is back to 50 watts, yes?

to clarify each speaker would receive 50w of the 100w correct?

no,it is 200watts total, 200/2=100 to each channel

channel 1 speaker 1 50w + speaker 2 50w = 100
channel 2 speaker 1 50w + speaker 2 50w = 100

total of 4 speakers at 2 ohms at 200 watts

you hook the one sub to EACH channel, so each sub gets its own 100 watts.

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?

create a new thread and answer these.......

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

"say you have a two channel amp. Ratings are 50x2 @4ohms and 100x2 @2ohms"

2 subs get 100 each...
4 subs get 50 each...

where is your math man!? jeje

ya, I'm with you...I did the math...BTW, I am hooking up speaker...6x9s. anyway, why in the hell would you want to feed a sub a lousy 50 or 100 watts anyway, Maybe some Sony Explode stuff perhaps..

" 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.

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:

Upload
^ ^ Connect the + on one voice coil to the + on the other vc. Then connect the - of one to the - of the other.

Upload
^ ^ Then connect the + of one VC to the box, and the - of the other VC to the box.
