    Question about my friends 10" a/d/s

    Sup guys my friend got a 10" a/d/s subwoofer for free. its in a sealed enclosure and it looks like an old school subwoofer. I wish I kept the sub overnight but I didn't. And there is this this plate amp hooked up to the box and then the power and the ground terminals are like this metal posts.

    What kind of wire terminals fit those metal stick like poles??

    I ask him how much ohms is the sub? and he said he doesn't know so I was like okay, And I hook up the sub to my VR300watt amp and then it was gonna put out a 4ohm load so I turn up to level 18/33 (Amp perfectly set for my RE8s) and the sub started to distort!. I can't believe my 2 RE8s killed my friends a/b/s sub.

    Im guessing the sub is 100watts rms and 150watts peak right??

    no idea buddy.

    a 10" ads is kind of vague. and if it has a plate amp, why didnt you hook that up?

    i dont know if that plate amp is 12v or 120v if it has terminals, im guessing its a loaded and amped 12v enclosure (all in one package kind of thing).

    Don't knock the a/d/s due to this little run. If you can get your hands on it again try it off the supplied amp. It was built for it after all...
