    Ohm Help

    Hey guys I have a subwoofer question. Question about OHM.

    I'm buying this amp, Polk Audio Class-D amplifier D5000.5, and I want to know if I should get a 4 Ohm or a 2 Ohm subwoofer.

    This is the name of the speaker. RE Audio SRX10D4 or RE Audio SRX10D2

    I also have 4 speakers.

    Thanks.

    Also can someone please explain to me what the difference is.

    Re: Ohm Help

    Dual 2 ohm sub >>> can be wired in series to have a final load of 4 ohms or wired in parallel to get a final load of 1 ohm

    Dual 4 ohm sub >>> can be wired in series to have a final load of 8 ohms or wired in parallel to get a final load of 2 ohms

    Now from looking at the specs on your amp for the sub channel and the sub, either sub will work, I would buy the SRX10D4 and wire it in parallel for a 2 ohm final load, this would allow me to add another sub later if needed.

    I can only fit 1 sub into the car. Will it affect the system if I buy the four but hook it up as a 2 ohm?

    Re: Ohm Help

    The 4 Infinity Reference 6032cf will work on the other 4 ch on the amp, one on each channel and wire it normally because it's already 2 ohm load each.

    And yes the 1 sub will work fine on the sub channel, and seen that you will only have one sub, then get the dual 2 ohm (RE Audio SRX10D2).

    Just curious, what's your budget for the sub? maybe we can suggest something better.

    The amp is nice, but I would suggest this DCON 10 Sound Solutions Audio 10" 300W DCON Series Subwoofer - SSA STORE for sub it's a bit more than your budget but it's a very good sub for it's price.

    I'm really hooked on the Re Audio sub, since a friend of mine has it. I have a Jeep Wrangler 2 Dr, so its a fairly small car. Is there a bad review about the Re Audio SRX10D2?

    It's not bad, just not what it use to be.
