    is this hooked up right... diagram done in paint!!!

    everyone.

    ive managed to upgrade my system to
    a memphis 16 mc1000d 1100 watt mono block amp

    and

    2 12" JL W3v2's

    in a small sealed box... the box is divided in two within
    providing each sub with its own airspace...

    right now i have it wired like in the diagram... supposedly
    this is in parallel[???] at 4ohm... which i thought was
    right since the speakers are 4 ohm...

    the subs should be getting 300 watts a piece which they
    can handle supposedly...

    this stuff is QUIET!!!!!!!!!!!!! i dont get it... my old subs would
    even bang with this amp...

    did i wire it wrong???

    Re: is this hooked up right... diagram done in paint!!!

    ok that amp is...
    RMS Power 4 ohm (Watts) 300X1
    RMS Power 2 ohm (Watts) 600x1
    1100x1 at 1 ohm

    are the subs DVC 2 ohm? DVC 4 ohm? or DVC 6 ohm??

    you said you think they're 4 ohm... so i supposed you meant DVC 4 ohm... well with 2 subs you can have it at 4 ohms or 1 ohm... so you can either have 550W RMS to each sub... or 150W RMS to each sub



    Been out of this for a longgg time...

    Re: is this hooked up right... diagram done in paint!!!

    it is DVC 4 ohm...

    so your saying im only getting 150 watts per sub... the amps
    manual made it seem like at 4ohm each sub would get 300 watts
    not share it... hmmm... confusing...

    isnt your diagram the same as mine???

    Re: is this hooked up right... diagram done in paint!!!

    the amps manual also has the 1ohm setup for one speaker
    set up like this...




    + - + -
    |.......|
    |.......|
    |.......|

    speaker


    with the middle two not used... for the 4ohm setup it shows this




    + - + -
    | | | |
    | | | |
    | | | |

    speaker speaker


    i have it wired to the amp like in the 4ohm pic...

    what happens if you wire it like the 1ohm set up for one speaker
    and then use the middle two for the other speaker???

    does it blow up????

    bump... for anyone that knows more about this stuff than me...

    also... am i supposed to use any special gauge wire to do
    the connections just between the terminals on the sub???
    i have a heavier gauge wire going from the terminals on
    the box to the amp... but how about these crazy connections
    just on the sub alone???
