    How much power is the sub seeing?

    I have about the coolest gf on the planet and she is about to buy me a setup from ED. I'm confused on something and want to make sure of it before I have her buy it. I am looking at the 110v2 which handles 450 rms. I want to get two of them and run them bridged to a nine.2x which at 4 ohms would be 600 rms. Would each sub see this much power? Or would it be split between the two? What is the best setup for two 11v2's? Should I get the nine.1 or the nine.2x? Also which dual ohm version should I get? My purchasing plans are in your hands. I am 100% going for SQ here so please don't make your opinion on output, but rather tight response.

    Thanks in advance.

    Justin

    Re: How much power is the sub seeing?

    Good question. I have a 600.1 in my Honda which should be 600 to the one. I bought a 1200.1 for my truck and that should give me 600 to each 12 I have in there. At least I hope!

    It would be split between the two.

    300w RMS to each sub.

    What is the best setup for two 11v2's? Should I get the nine.1 or the nine.2x? Also which dual ohm version should I get?
    I would personally go with the nine.1 and dual 4ohm voice coils. This would allow you to wire them down to a 1ohm load, for 600w to each sub. According to the info on eD's website, this should be a good combination, just use your head with the gain setting and don't use any bass boost.

    "11Ov.2 Ideal Power Range: 220w - 650w"

    If you wanted to play it cautious, go with dual 2ohm voice coils and wire them in series-parallel for a final 2ohm load and 900w RMS. This would give ~450w to each sub.

    But that decision is really up to you, and your confidence in your ability to not damage anything....LOL

    Re: How much power is the sub seeing?

    Ok, I'm going to go with the nine.1. I guarantee I'm going to be back here in a few weeks with the how do I get these wires on correctly (to the subs) questions LOL. I see the tuturial, but I never understood how you connect the subs to each other when they are in sealed boxes. I think its why I used a single sub last time LOL.

    I'll go order now. 11ov.2 and the nine.1
