    How much power is given?

    Ok so lets says you have 4 d2 speakers and you run them in a series/parallel set up to make a 1 ohm load off a 1000 watt @1ohm amplifier how much power does each see in this set up?

    Row 1 = 2 voicecolis in series : 2.00 ohms : 2.00 ohms
    ( 4.00 ohms total for row)
    Row 2 = 2 voicecolis in series : 2.00 ohms : 2.00 ohms
    ( 4.00 ohms total for row)
    Row 3 = 2 voicecolis in series : 2.00 ohms : 2.00 ohms
    ( 4.00 ohms total for row)
    Row 4 = 2 voicecolis in series : 2.00 ohms : 2.00 ohms
    ( 4.00 ohms total for row)
    Connecting Row 1 and Row 2 and Row 3 and Row 4 in Parallel
    Total Impedance for this combination = 1.00 ohms

    In theory...each would see 250 watts.....

    However, actual resistance and impedance rise and actual output of amp all come into play.

    Re: How much power is given?

    so if you had 10 speakers same set up same amp each would see 100 watts then ok I am asking because I am going to be setting up a wall with 8 12's in my explorer and would like to see about 500 to each sub so that means I would need about a 4k watt amplifier then right?I want to run just a single sub amp though

    If you want a full 500w to go to each sub, I would be looking at something that does what you want at 2 ohm. Your box rise will put you closer to that rating or higher.

    So you want 4-5k at 2 ohm.

    Re: How much power is given?

    Yeah that makes sense to me. Well I guess I am off to find a 4-5k rms amp @2 should be able to find 1 in the $600-900 range I think
