hi, my installer changed my subs to 8ohms from 2ohms, this leads me to think that my subwoofer are weaker now ? the higher the ohm the weaker it is ? i have a BMW 530i my question is at what ohms is it the best power ? i dont want to drain the battery or anything but i want the speaker to do what is capable of which is pounding bass.
one more question is, if I add 1 more jl 10w6v2 sub but with 2 ohms is it ok ? will the amp be able to adjust ? or do I have to have same ohms for both subs that will be connected to my amp ? its a JL 500/1 amp.
If you add one more 10w6v2 you will have no problems. I whould recommend wiring the subs in series to get 4 ohm to give the amp less stress. Your options will be 4 ohm or 2 ohm. Either will work fine with this amp.
you will want to wire the subs the same. The higher the ohms, ussualy gives you better SQ and a higher damping factor?? im not sure on that one but i heard that somwhere, but the lower the ohms the less resistance it has so it can handle more power...
