    how to wire alpine /w jbl bp600

    thealpine is a dual voicecoil with 2ohm on each voice coil
    (Alpine Type R 1221 [2ohm+2ohm])

    the jbl runs 300 watts at 4 ohm

    i have 1 sub
    the alpine runs at 1000 watts peak and 300 rms
    so how do i wire the sub?

    parallel the two voicecoils or series?
    i want the sub to present a 4 ohm load on the amp

    sorry im a newbie

    Since you want a 4 ohm mono load at the amp and the sub has Dual 2 ohm Voice Coils. You will need to wire the sub like this:




    Typically 10 Gauge wire works exceptionally well for subwoofers.


    take it easy,
