i have two mtx t9512-44 12 inches dvc and they are push terminals for the speaker wire but right on the sides of the push termianls there are the allen wrench type screws for both + and the - side on both sides of the speakers. is it for hooking more subs up? or setting the subs down to 1 ohm? thats how i see it because there aint enough room too hook another speaker wire up to the push terminals

sorry for the bad pic...

they're to wire the voice coils in series (8 ohm) or parallel (2 ohm). then use the push terminals to go to the amp.

Wow.. I've messed with quite a few drivers and I've never seen that before

looks like the type r's. and i believe your right about the use. id check with a dmm just to be sure tho

ok so i have two mtx 9500's dvc say i wanted to put both to 4 ohm how would i do that the mtx speaker configuration paper that came with the sub confuses me

i have this paper it came with the mtx 9500's but it totally confuses me. i have two mtx 9500's dvc i wanna wire to 4 ohm load can i still use the allen wrench screws to hook both up to 4 ohm

Just leave those alone and wire the spring terminals as usual (to 4 ohm load). Those are jumpers for other wiring setups

You can get a DMM for $20 and easily run a few tests to see what ohm's you're actually making if you are paranoid

(digital multimeter, from homedepot/radioshack/etc, you can test voltage, ohms, etc)

that's exactly what the screws are for, instead of jamming all the wires into the spring terminal... you want each at 4 or the pair at 4? you can wire each with coils parallel, the both subs in series. that would be 4 ohms final at the amp

He's looking for 4 ohm final load

then he needs to do as said above ^^

like so:

Right.. ignore the jumpers and wire as normal..

Why do new people always post topics asking questions about their subs in the classifieds?

if you're tryin to be right... then ok. where you put the wires on the terminal is irrelevant. if you find you can't fit all the wires into the spring terminal, that's why the screw terminals are there.

im looking for a final 4 ohm load for both subs hooked up



that's exactly what the screws are for, instead of jamming all the wires into the spring terminal... you want each at 4 or the pair at 4? you can wire each with coils parallel, the both subs in series. that would be 4 ohms final at the amp
