    Over kill!

    well boredom got to me and I had a bunch of 4g spade terminals around and 9' of 4 wire so I figured using the terminals to clamp both a 12g wire and 4g jumper wire together and using the spade would allow me to use it as speaker wire! just took some tight twisting to get it in the amps outouts but it looks good and clean and memphis emailed me today they have two new end caps for my amp for me!




    and a before shot

    Kinda pointless unless you account I did an ohm load reading at the amp with the yellow jumpers as the primary wires and the same 12g(different color) jumpers and got 1.1 ohms, after I got dead 1.0 so itty bitty difference, but it does look cool and my wife was always bitching about the extra wire I always have laying around.

    Re: Over kill!

    but now I need 8g jumpers. terminals for 0g to hold two 4g runs would be hard to mod to fit the terminal on the sub.

    Thats really cool that it did, in fact, produce a readable drop in resistance. Nice!

    doesn't this mean the one coil with the yellow 12ga jumper will see less power than the coil with the 4ga coming in...unless you run 4 ga to both coils and splice them together between the amp outs and sub?...I could see some distro blocks looking pretty cool.
