View Full Version : No 2 ohm comp sets? Or DVC comps?

It would be nice to have a 2 ohm comp set to get the most out of amps that get more power at 2 ohms. I know you can bride to get the power if you have a 4 ch amp. Seems 2 ohm or dvc would make sense to get the most of 4 ch amps too?

I believe ID has a component with 2 ohm version.
Check on www.woofersetc.com

Infinity and Jbl make 2 ohm comp sets

Coo,l now is there any disadvantage to 2 ohm sets?

i wonder why more companies dont make ohms speakers,

I'm guessing it has to do with the tiny bit more distortion at the lower impedance level, but I doubt its very audible.

The increase in power delivered is usually offset by the decrease in efficiency because of the reduced length of wire in the magnetic gap and the corresponding decrease in motor strength. Roughly half the wire means roughly half the Bl means roughly half the efficiency. Since no amps actually make 2x the power into half the load the overall result is a loss in output despite an increase in power.

also, most, if not all, headunits dont have an internal amp capable of playing down to 2 ohms..

Real speakers are meant for real amps, not HU power. Higher end component makers could give a rat's *** about what a HU "amp" can or can't do. Nothing to do with the lack of 2 ohm mids.

Who the hell puts components on HU power?

I believe CDT also has a set. Or you can go with dual mid Germs like me to go down to 2ohms

- Bingo, this is true.... it's harder to make a 2 ohm speaker as efficient. It's a sales gimmick.
