    wiring each VC on a D4 to 2 amps? WANT To Do EBB

    If you wired each vc on a D4 individually with matching amps(monoblocks) what would the final ohms be?

    And are there any pro/cons wiring a sub this way?

    Re: wiring each VC on a DVC to 2 amps?

    Need an answer here would like to pick up a pair of 1000watt 10's for EBB
    and Im looking at SSA icon or DC lvl4's and maybe the Mach5's.

    It would be cheaper for me to just add 2 more Xenon 600.1's but if I need more
    juice Ill add 4 Xenon 1200.1's if I have too.
    Obviously Id like to stay with PG but if wiring each vc independantly is not
    recommended then I need to know before I start dropping cash.

    What would be the final ohm load on a d2 or d1?

    So you want to use 4 amps and 2 DVC subs with one coil per amp.. ?


    If they are dual 1 subs, then each amp will see 1ohm..

    I don't know if it's just me, but running 4 amps for a pair of subs doesn't sound the wisest decision...



    I INSTALL STUFF.

    i do it all.

    ditto. i think thatd be more expensive than just 1 big amp. not to mention space.

    all in all, its just not efficient

    Re: wiring each VC on a D4 to 2 amps?

    check and find out if they are strappable...if so it would be at 2 ohms...so wire a dual 1 in series pair of strapped amps.....would be 2400 @ 2 ohm per sub (and 2 amps strapped)....LIKE I SAID TALK TO PHOENIX GOLD before attempting.

    well each amp would only be seeing 4ohms if the subs are dual 4 ohms. so you wouldnt even be getting full power out of them. you will get a better and smarter answer if you posted the type of sub and voice coils your dealing with. this is not a smart idea...

    No they are not thats why I was wondering about wiring each vc independently.
    But if the Maxxlink can link up to 5 amps problem solved regardless of strappable
    or not. Right?

    The Maxxonics website description has no mention of the amps having to
    be strappable just that the unit is universal works in a master and slave config.
