    I don't have them wired like that, I have it wired like this, I'll draw a crappy paint drawing.

    If your subs was Dual 1 Ohms, wiring the subs like that put your subs at 2 ohms, because it's in series.

    Yes, this will add the two resistances 1+1=2

    When you wire two voice coils with identical impedance, in parallel, it gives you a final impedance of half of one of the voice coils. Thats what you did. And you ended up with a .5 ohm load. You need to wire your voice coils in a series, which will give you a final impedance of twice that of one of your voice coils. I only know the basics, and there's certainly much more to it than that, but you get the idea.

    Alright so does it matter where I put the 2 wires coming out that will go into the amp? Can I put them in any negative and positive terminal?

    Yes it matters, lol. Do EXACTLY what the diagram says. Put a short wire leading from the + post of one voice coil to the - post on the other voice coil. This will leave you with one positive post and one negative post open on each voice coil.... hook them up to your amp accordingly. + to +, - to -. use good speaker wire for all of this....

    just realized that you were talking about the fact that the apsm has 4 terminal screws. 2 + and 2 -... lol, my bad. no, that part doesn't matter, I just use the two that are farthest apart.


    Edit: just make sure you're doing it right this time. double check to make sure everything is perfect before hooking it up.

    And make sure that they are different coils I seen 1 guy hook the + and - together on 1 coil and run the other + and - of the remaining coil to the amp and that was his idea of series lol.



    "Originally Posted by Kangaroux" Bridging takes a way a lot of the SQ and it sounds extremely distorted. I believe when you bridge it it switches from a class A/B to a class D, but I"m not positive..

    Lol, I swear I did that about 11 years ago before I started dabbling in car audio. I had a alpine type-r and wanted to run it at 8 ohms off a 300 watt PA amp in a powered sub box off my home system. Ruined it in minutes.... Lmao

    There were Alpine Type R's 11 years ago? I didn't realize they had been around that long.

    So like this?
