    Icon32 yet another amp to sub wiring question

    ok i want to bridge an amplifier, so that would make it send out 2 ohm load right, but the subs that i have are dvc 4 ohm. should i wire the subs the same way i would if i just wanted to wire them at 4 ohm? since i bridge the amp, 2 ohm power is already coming out right, so do i have to wire the subs a certain way to get them to accept the 2 ohm load? or do i just wire them in the normal 4 ohm way like this

    the amp doesn't determain the impedence...the drivers (resistors) do.

    that right there is 4 ohms x 1. with two 4 ohm dvc subs, you'r only options are 1, 4, or 16 ohms.



    when in doubt, check the ground.

    or if u ran each sub off of it's own channel on a two channel amplifier...then u could get a 2ohm load from each sub to each channel. peace
