    does not work
    each woofer would see different levels of power and you would have terrible cancellation and all around crappyness.

    Re: quick question on multiple woofer wiring options

    wait - are you saying 24 subs in total or 2 subs in total?

    just for f*cks sake if you are talking 2 subs the final load would be 0.667 ohms , but like I said you cannot (should not) run different subs on the same amp

    Re: quick question on multiple woofer wiring options

    Is it possible that you type your whole question out and not just parts of it?

    "Here you say you want 12 - 4 ohm subs and 12 - 2 ohm subs = 24 subs total."

    What is your question exactly?

    I think he wants the loads for 12 d4's and 12 d2's. Probably so he can figure out which vc's to go with.

    using an "OR" instead of that "AND" would have made it much more clear.

    What ohm load are you looking for? There are tons of different answers but knowing what you are looking for would make it much easier to decide?

    Are you looking for 1 ohm .5 ohm?

    Re: quick question on multiple woofer wiring options

    If you go with Dual 2 ohm's

    wire 3 sets of 4 subs in parallel = .25 per set of 4

    run those 3 in series and I believe you will have a .75 load but someone else should check that as the only thing I am not 100% sure on is what happens when you series 3 .25 ohm loads (I think the answer is .75)
