    2 12 inch subs reading 3.2 to 2.9 ohms safe hook up to new amp or will I just fry amp

    2 12 inch wild beast had them tested at audio store tested at mostly around 3.1 ohms 750 rms will it be safe to hook one up to a brand new amp or will i just fry or blow the amp? Spider seems firm they are cadence brand old school, audio tech said I should use them as paper weights.

    You are just measuring resistance and 3.2 to 2.9 isn't that bad of a variance between the two.



    I used to swear by old school car audio gear, now I swear at it!

    4 ohm single voice coil sub is this a safe idea the tech told me the subs probably fried the last owners amp that is why he sold them to me, I think the tech is just trying to sell the subs in the shop to me.... SO safe idea from the info provided or not a safe hook up
