do you have single 4 ohm coils? dual 4 ohm coils on each sub? dual 2 ohm? etc etc... let me know for sure - 06-02-2003Mr. Nipples
there dual 4 ohm voice coils

- 06-02-2003Wonderbread
ok..

wire each sub in parallel... 2 2 ohm loads...

now wire these in SERIES single 4 ohm load.

however, that amp will be soft on that pair of subs... - 06-02-2003Mr. Nipples
what do you mean soft?

would i be better off with the 2ohm model but that wouldnt wokr brcuase of the amp would it? - 06-02-2003Wonderbread
no, those subs are the right VC configs, just htat amp has relatively low power for a pair of them...

good power for a single one... but not for a pair...

its RMS is onlyy 900 watts. - 06-02-2003Mr. Nipples
I have a 1.0 stinger digital fard for it too and that amp pushes more than 1500 watts also its on teh upwards of 1900 watts

- 06-03-2003Wonderbread
actually, that is the peak rating...

rms is a mere 900 watts... and it may be underrated, but not more than 1000 watts will come from it. - 06-03-2003MaXiMa
ya nice amp for one L7 but not for 2.

- 06-03-2003MaXiMa
