    Look..... The sub does not care what impedance it is run at. It is the amp that matters. Please go here Basic Car Audio Electronics and learnd about how car audio works.

    nope.

    100% incorrect.

    Please try again.

    also, you could probably use some practice typing anyways

    Wow. Boss audio is your problem. Everything you have is just wrong. Worst possible equipment. Buy a good amp for a cheap price such as the precision power phantom series 900 I beleive for like 189 shipped.

    This review is from: PAIR BOSS AUDIO P156DVC 15" 5000W Car Subwoofers 2 Subs (Electronics)
    These subs are good for a cheap system with a decent amp and a good amount to bass to be heard around the block, I've purchased the 12 and 15" version of this sub and the 15"s are by far much better than the 12"s. The main thing about these is they seem to handle their rated power but exactly at 4 ohms, if you run them parallel and drop them down to 2ohms or even 1ohm on a pair than these things will smoke up before you even know it. So stay at 4 ohms and these things are great, also the cones look cool but very flimsy and flexible, I can't really complain much on this because the subs are cheap and hit very hard for their price. Overall 3 stars.

    Re: Subs keep blowing.

    lol, Andreas sounds like quite the expert.

    You should do some reading into basic electronics, you sound like a ******* idiot, and judging by the fact you believed those reviews just re-enforces it.

    those subs are crap, that's why they keep blowing. I'm sure they blow at any ohm load with a true 500 watts rms on them if you're clipping the hell out of them, which I'm sure you are. cause they just weren't "as loud as you think they should be" so you cranked the gain and bass boost.

    How did you set your amp in the first place, OP?

    he probably wire the same amp he had at 4 ohms, down to 1 ohm and the inevitable power increase cooked the shizz out of those beasts.

    Re: Subs keep blowing.

    The fact that Andreas claimed to run that PAIR of subs at 4, 2 and 1 ohm should provide enough insight to automatically dismiss his claims.

    500 watts is 500 watts is 500 watts, 1 ohm just means amp doesnt need to work as hard to put 500 to the sub.

    Do yourself a favor and think about the kind of people that run this type of equipment. Do you think they have any idea what they are doing? I would put money down that most are running them on way overrated 2 channel amps. Bridged way to low.

    Re: Subs keep blowing.

    Actually at 1 ohm the amp is hotter/less efficient than at 4, so in essence it is working "harder" at 1 ohm.

    More than 5 people here on a car audio forum has said it is wrong. I think that would trump 5 people on Amazon who buy boss saying that stuff.
