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.

your fine, your speakers are the same they just have a different resistance voice coil, which gives you different wiring options. check this out

you can screw around with the voice coils and see how much resistance you have in the end.

You should have that sub wired at 2 ohm so that you can take advantage of your JL 500/1 amp which puts out 500 watts rms from 1.5-4 ohm

for some reason the fuse was blowing from the amp I am not sure if its true or not, thats why he changed the speaker to 8ohms, should I tell him to change the speaker back to 2 ohms ?

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...
