    Icon32 Wire a 4ohm sub to 2ohm?

    Hey guys, I ordered two 15" Diamond D3 subwoofers. I ordered the 2ohm version but I received the 4ohm. I was talking to some people and they said I could wire it down to 2ohm. I'm not sure though because of what my amp is. Can you guys just double check to see if these speakers can be wired down to 2ohm with the amp I have? Thanks!

    Speakers: http://www.diamondaudio.com/content/view/135/149/
    Amp: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...ZX1000.1.html#

    Schematic drawn up by a guy at the audio store(not sure if it will work with my amp or not):


    Thanks once again guys.

    Right, that's exactly what I was thinking. I have to use it at 2 ohm. I'll see if i can't get the 2ohm version back of these then... gah.
