    Re: Help me out guys !!!!!!

    it depends what impendence your l7s are. if theyre dvc 4ohm, you can either do it in a 4ohm load or 1ohm load. also depends on how they're gonna be used, if its a daily driver, id wired into 4 ohms. but that also depends what amp you have. need more info

    Re: Help me out guys !!!!!!

    They are 12's dual 4 ohm coils......
    That's the thing I don't have an amp yet.... i'm trying to find out how this works so i can buy the best amp that i can possibly buy for these subs.....
    .:uD3::. If it was the daily driver why would you wire them at 4 ohms ???
    So if I wire them at 1 ohm What power do i need ??? 1 ohm, 2 ohm ???

    Re: Help me out guys !!!!!!

    So my best bet would be a 1 channel amp that would give me 1,200 to 1,500 watts rms at 1 ohm. right ??
