Hey everyone, I am not quite a noob to these things but no where near an expert, I am trying to learn about the really techy details of my system, so I can optimize the amp and speaker settings. I have 2-12 inch db drive subs that are 4 ohm, dual voice coil, 750watt rms a peice. I have them wired parallel on a 1200watt mono amp that is 1ohm stable and capable of pushing 1200watts rms@1ohm. I am curious if someone can tell me what this all boils down to in laymans terms. Im decently capable of understanding technical things, but online searches have gotten me nowhere. I've already seized up an alternator running this system, so I now know I need a high output alt. and a stronger battery, and that capacitors are pointless.
1)I am wondering what it means to have the system wired in a 1ohm setup, and if it is possible for me to set my subs up this way because I am thinking less ohms is better because that means less resistence on the system putting less stress on the electrical system.
2)please let me know if any of the following is correct!So far from what I understand, my amp is pushing out 1200watts and since it is a mono amp the 2 speaker inputs are internally tied into a single channel. since the subs are 4ohms and have dual voice coils wired in parallel, they are each receiving 300 watts per voice coil (or 600 watts per subwoofer)
Now I also was wondering if there is a better way to wire the dvc's. I saw that I can wire them in a "series" pattern but from what I gathered that will divide the power even further and bring the ohms up. And if i'm correct the less ohms the better.
Please let me know if this is right, and if there is anything that im confused about or just plain wrong about.
