    Icon7 Hooking up 2 JL 10W3's to a PG ZX500 amp

    Hey guys



    2 JL 10W3's ( single voice coils, both are 2ohm speakers ) currently in a single box and wired each to their own sets of terminals.


    PG ZX500 (2/1 channel amp) which is rated by PG as: "300w x2 at 2 ohms" ~or~ "600w x1 at 4 ohm BRIDGED"


    Now I have no idea how impedance works, at all. It's pathetic, I know. How should I hook up the subs?


    I already did some research - does this look like what I should do??




    The PG amp has 2 sets of speaker outs. It goes L+ L- R+ R-

    There is a line between the L+ and the far outer R-, which says BRIDGED



    Is the "bridge" actually done by wiring the speakers in series, and using the outer terminals?

    Or can i hook both speaker positive to the outer L+ and bothe negatives to the R-


    Or am I tripping on drugs and should do what the crutchfield says (do the #'s match up with my setup)


    It should be at 300w each sup with them wired like in crutchfield pic?

    Is this pic applicable to my setup?

    Is this a "bridge" and i can use this as one channel on my amp?






    or stick with the first pic in my original post?

    Thanks in advance

    bridged is better, connect the subs so there is only 2 wires and connect those 2 wires to the amp brdged,....if the amp is 1 ohm stable

    wire your subs for 4 ohms cos your amp does 600@4 ohms.

    oops, that doesnt help, jl reccomend NOT connecting different drivers in series, looks like your best option is connect each driver to your amp seperately.
