    Dual 2 Ohm wiring help

    I know Dual 2 ohm can go negative > negative to negative on amp and same for the positive to obtain 1ohm stable through the amp (if the amp outputs power @ 1 ohm). Can you wire this any differently to get 4 ohms or 2 ohms or anything? Or am I stuck at 1 ohm as my only choice?

    Cadence ZRS-10
    Pioneer DEH-P5500

    Re: Dual 2 Ohm wiring help

    I thought so about the 4 ohm. With these amp specs, what kind of power will it see:

    4X 75 RMS 4 Ohm @ .04%THD
    4 X 150 RMS 2 Ohm
    2 X 300 Watts RMS Power (4 Ohm)

    It's not my equipment. I sold my D2 XXX to a friend and he has this ghetto multichannel Planet Audio TT4300 amp.

    I know whatever this amp will push won't be REMOTELY enough for this sub, it's temporary until the end of the month and I'll have him buy a 1500w @ 1ohm monoblock at the least.

    And thanks for the link to the help thread, it helped a lot.

    Re: Dual 2 Ohm wiring help

    the best thing to do with a 4ch amp to one sub is just bridge ch 1 and 2 to get the 300rms at 4 ohm, then wire ur sub up to get the 4 ohms........ dont even mess with ch 3 and 4 unless you got another sub to hook up the same way

    wiring option

    at 2 ohms per coil connect them to channels 3 & 4 in the amplifier. This way you get 300w RMS into the speaker and have 2 free channels to run mids etc

    I know it won't. I ran a 1500w Cadence ZRS-8 to it in my car, but between the box literally taking up my entire trunk and my rears seats not folding down except for that little middle section ('98 grand prix gt) it sounded like **** compared to what it sounds like in his 4runner on that crappy amp at only 300w. I can't imagine what it will sound like with the proper wattage and a better amp.
