    Wiring Subs @ 1 ohm help

    Ok i have a sealed enclosure This exact one Fierce Audio - 10" Dual Sealed Flat Pack Subwoofer Enclosure - FPS210.1

    I am planning on putting 2 500w rms subs in it my problem is my am will do 900w x 1 @ 1ohm but i cant wire them inside the box unless i put holes in my box will that mess up the sound or is there anyway to wire them into their own seprate terminals and get them to 1 ohm btw my subs are going to be RD sonace 10' dvc 4ohms subs

    Wire the subs up separately to each cup terminal like you normally would then on the outside of the box you can just run them how you need too using those.

    So are they dvc subs or not? Those are not, so if those are what you have your wiring options are 2 ohm or 8 ohm loads.

    DVC subs should have 4 connectors, two for each voice coil. both the negatives and both the positives, meaning the neg and pos on each sub?

    Thats not always the case though. I had a DVC audiobahn that had 2 positive and 2 negatives per voice coil.

    Interesting I did not know that. I suppose then I should have said a minimum of 4 connectors per sub.

    rumdada that is a pic of DVC sub unless for some reason they decided to give a SVC four terminals on opposite sides . That link must not be to the right sub. If they are D4s, then each is wired to 2 ohms if you've done pos-pos and neg-neg on each, and if you've wired both in parallel to each other they will be at 1 ohm.

    If they are D2s they will be at 1 ohm each, and 0.5 in parallel with each other. Check the final resistance that amp sees with a multimeter. connect the leads to the speaker wire going to your amp (disconnected)
