    PPI DCX 1000.1 Question.

    Not sure if anyone is familiar with this amp or not. Currently I have it wired at 1 ohm. I want to do four. I have 2 Dual 4 ohm subs. I'm aware it's not possible to wire the subs together for 2 ohms, but it is if each sub is wired seperate. The DCX has 2 positive terminals and 2 negative terminals. If i wire each sub differently, will i have 300 watts going to each sub (600 watts total), or 600 to each sub (1200 total).

    Amp ratings.
    400x1 + 4 ohm
    600x1 + 2 ohm
    1000x1 + 1 ohm

    A mono amp is usually paralleled internally so it won't matter if you wire the subs seperate or together, you'd still get a 1-ohm load...

    No.
    The internals of the amp as CJ said, are split at the out puts so you dont need to jam a bunch of speaker wires into only one terminal, its just for convenience it is not an actual left and right channel.
    Read this tid bit I wrote on how ohms work so you get a better Idea what to do.

    Re: PPI DCX 1000.1 Question.

    You pretty much answered my question. If each sub is wired seperately in 2 ohms, the amp is gonna get a 2 ohm load.

    Re: PPI DCX 1000.1 Question.

    With 1 sub it would see a 2-ohm load ,but since you're using 2 subs & it's paralleled internally it'll still see a 1-ohm load...
