    4channel amp into 2 dvc's

    I have a four channel amp and it just occured to me by bridging the wire gets bigger so there is less resistance therefore less ohms ok well if I knew this to buy svc subs I would have but with a pair of dvc type R's and a 4 channel amp if I run a channel per coil is that a 4ohm load? Is there anyway to get a 2ohm load so I can get more watts outta it so I can run my 125x4 watt at 4ohm amp at more wattage in 2 ohm so I can get the full 300watts per sub? If I cant wire to 2ohm is 250 instead of 300 watts going to kill me and if I turn the gains down **** it that will **** but lets say I use half gain will that be ok!

    2 ohm

    jurmax-- your amp is not stable into
    2 ohm mono you'll be getting the most
    power at 4 ohm bridge/mono
    by wiring your type R's in series /parallel
    to the rear channel of your amp each sub would
    be getting 250 watts ( per sub ) for a total of 500 watts
    for the rear channel . then you'll
    be able to use the front channels of your amp
    to run another pair of type R's at 4 ohm bridge/mono
    or mabe some seprates at 4 ohm stereo
    for your front doors . " just a thought "

    http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI...tem=1337525653 all these sites I have found says they are 2ohm stable and 250 x 4 in 2 ohm instead of 125x 4 in 4ohms so I would like it in 2 ohm is it possible?And how would I get 250 watts out of 2 channels and have 2 channels left over confirm I read that right!

    2 ohms

    jrmax--the amp on ebay item # 1337525653
    is a 2 channel amp rated at
    250x2 at 4 ohm stereo
    500x2 at 2 ohm stereo
    1000x1 at 4 ohm bridge/mono (this amp is a 2 channel amp
    and not a 4 channel amp)

    on your original post you said that
    you had a 4 channel amp
    rated at
    125x4 and you wanted to know how you
    could wire your dual 4 ohm voice coil sub
    to your amp for a 2 ohm mono load

    so do you want to know how you could
    wire you sub to that 2channel amp (that is on ebay)
    or wire your sub to a 4 channel amp
    ( please explain)

    amp load

    jrmax- the p-4125 is rated at
    125x4 at 4 ohm stereo
    250x4 at 2 ohm stereo
    500x2 at 4 ohm bridge/mono

    your type R's are dual 4 ohm voice coils subs
    the only way to acheive a 2 ohm load with
    your subs . would be by wiring both voice coils
    in parallel (per sub) then wiring each sub
    in 2ohm stereo for 250 watts per sub
    for a total of 500 watts
    the p-4125 is only stable at 4 ohm bridge/mono only.
    for both front and rear channels (when in a bridge mode.)
    so to run your sub at 2 ohm you'll have to run it in stereo

    your best bet with those sub for more power would be to
    #1-- a 2 channel amp rated between 600 to 800 watts at
    4 ohm in bridge/mono
    (wiring both subs in series/parallel)for a 4 ohm load

    #2 -- a class d sub amp with between 600--800watts at 1 ohm mono
    then wiring both subs in( parallel ) for a 1 ohm load

    So if I wire it in stereo then I cant get more than 500 watts!
    250x4 at 2 ohm stereo How do I achieve this set up with my dvc subs?

    4 ohm load

    jrmax- how about wiring both subs
    in series/parallel. for a 4 ohm load
    then wiring your subs to your front
    channels of your amp in a( bridge/mono) mode
    for 500 watts.

    then get another pair of type R's
    dual 4 ohm voice coil subs and wire them
    in series/parallel for a 4 ohm load
    then wire them to the rear channels
    of your amp in a( bridge/mono) mode
    for 500 watts.
    grand total
    500 watts for your front bridge channel
    and
    500 watts for your rear bridge channel
