    Put a voice coil on a multi-meter and test the resistance..divide by 2 and you will know what it comes out to at a 2 ohm load..or wire them in parallel and measure it..If it is a dual 6 ohm VC then ya it will be 3 ohms.

    I always feel like I'm being yelled at when someone types like that.

    Re: ECLIPSE OHMS

    Wingmans here with eclipse ohms! I have a set of them and they are 4 ohms nominal! But wait there's more! Subs are a reactive load so if you run the subs at difference frequencies you may end up with 3 ohms or even 6 ohms! It is called impedance rise! Holy ****!



    ^^^Hey wtf I just tried to cap lock everything and it got changed to non-cap.

    I bet it was to keep idiots from typing in all caps.

    Because the rules were different 9 years ago.



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.
