    L7 watts?

    Is 600 watts RMS enough power to push a s10L7?

    Re: L7 watts?

    How many do you have, one or two? Also, is it (are they?) the dual 4ohm/coil version? If you only have one sub, and it has dual 4ohm voice coils, then yes...you can wire it to 2ohm. If you have a pair of L7's, and they are both dual 4ohms, then you can not wire them together for a 2ohm load....your only options would be 1ohm and 4ohm.

    Re: L7 watts?

    get the 4 ohm DVC L7's like you said.
    you can wire each down to 2 ohm
    then the pair back up to 4 ohm...
    and the VGA1600.2
    it does 1600x1 @ 4ohm
    which will give the L7's 800w a piece.
    see, you did it all yourself and didn't even know it
