    clear things up

    ok im looking at amplifiers and i dont really understand what i want or am looking for. im interested in (2) 12 in type R's. Im looking into a Hifonics Amplifier. i dont know which one and maybe if i understood the specifications i could know what i want. ok these are from the hifonics BXI 2006 (Brutus?) Anyway at 1ohm it pushes 2000 watts at 1 channel. At 2ohms it pushes 1300 watts. Ok what does all this mean. i think one channel means i would have to hook the subs together and then go from one sub to the amp. Is this correct. If so then whats the ohms part mean. I know this is probably an annoying question but i hope to get answers. Please help!

    www.bcae1.com read that WHOLE SITE. it takes a while, but youll learn a lot...

    ohm load is basically the resistance level. your sub has voice coils at a certain ohm level and that determines how you can wire your subs together for a final load at the amp. (2x) 12 inch type r's with dual 4ohm coils will get you down to a 1 ohm load, being a good load for that amp as it does max power there.

    Thats really all it is, the ohm loads (for beginners) just sets how you can wire the subs together.

    I have a way better amp new in the clasifieds that you should love and not worry bout load cause it makes enough power at 1 ohm or 2 ohms..........
