    need help with type r sub wiring

    My friend needs to hook up his one type r dual 4 ohm sub to a 2 channel kenwood kac-7201 amp. I'm not sure how many ohms the amp is rated at or if it will even work with the voice coil setup. any suggestions?

    you can wire that sub to either 8 ohms or 2 ohms. i doubt that amp isn't 2 ohm stable bridged. should've got a dual 2 ohm.

    Re: need help with type r sub wiring

    In curiosity, is that why so many type r fans want to have a 2 ohm stable sub? Because it seems that everyone is more interested in a 2 ohm rather than 4 ohm.

    Subs are not stable at different impedance levels... I think youre shooting for a 2 ohm coil configuration

    He meant "box" as in the amp itself...not a speaker enclosure. At least, that's how I took it to read.

    ok so he has two of those amps, would it be better to wire it to both of them if that is possible?

    Yeah, I didnt even realize that I wrote box... At least someone on here has some common sense.

    Re: need help with type r sub wiring

    so my options are only to wire it down to 8ohms?

    Originally he had 2 type r's each wired to a seperate kenwood amp, but one of the type r's are blown so i was thinking about rewiring it when we put just the one back in.
