    Is there any way to do this with 2 sets of terminals?

    I am going to do a 2 ohm load from my 2 BLs with 2 ohm DVC

    here is how I m supposed to wire them up..


    But I am trying to figure out if there is a way to wire them up to 2 sets of terminals?

    here is a pic of what my terminals looks like


    If it is not possible at all then I guess I could just use one terminal.. (i d prefer to use 2 if possible)

    Any input would be appreciated, thanks in advance

    Easy. Wire each sub to 4 ohms to the terminals, run both terminals to the amp for a 2 ohm load.

    Re: Is there any way to do this with 2 sets of terminals?

    So I am assuming that I should do this http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftec...hmDVC_4ohm.gif

    and then how do I wire both of them to the amp? just both of them directly to their own set of + and - on the amp or what?

    From the look of it, I think I m wrong? Shouldnt I wire the + terminal to another + terminal and then go down to the amplifier's +.. same thing with the - ??

    Like I said, if I have to use just one, fine then..

    And I think I want to do 2 sets cuz I am bored lol, I wanna play with my subs so I can just play with wirings for now until I get my amp

    Yup, that's what each sub will look like inside the box. I assume you have a monoblock amp? If so, just put both + on the terminals to the + on the amp, same for the -.

    but then it will be 4 ohm load from both of them?

    shouldnt both +'s and -'s be together going to the amp?

    or the mono amp's terminals are already connected with each other?

    Sorry, like I said, I m a noob at this sometimes

    After you wire them to 4ohms in the box do this......Pretend the subwoofer terminals are the box terminals. I'd use 1 terminal.

    so is this correct? lol



    If so, then I learned something lol, I never knew that the amp have 2 sets of + and - that are connected to each other

    Stupid question- am I looking at any kind of performance loss or anything with this set up compared with using just one terminal? thanks

    im doing the same thing here so this picture what i did will work too? i put in 2 terminals and basically just wire 1 of the amp power wires to the matching +- and then run it through to the matching +- sub?
