    Re: Wire me stupid

    1 ohm final load/impedance? How do you know your sub isn't slamming? What type of enclosure is it in?

    How is your gain set? Match the HU?

    Re: Wire me stupid

    whats bridged?? and how do you have a d2 sub wired series - parallel ?? a d2 sub wired in parallel to the amp will be a 1 ohm load.

    Re: Wire me stupid

    Youre either at .5 ohms or 2 ohms provided you have 2 subs. Guessing 2 ohms by ur description.
    You cant get full power unless u run it at 5 ohms, which the amp isnt rated for.

    You don't bridge a mono amp and it's either series or parallel not both.

    Re: Wire me stupid

    Series parallel is when you have the subs in series and vc's in parallel, or vice versa
