    What is up with my sub wiring?

    In my last thread we came to the conclusion that one of my subs needs to be broken in, well i got curious so i switched positions of the subs, and now its doing the same thing, with the other sub.

    The one that i originally thought was not broken in is moving with more excursion, so now i'm confused. I THOUGHT my wiring was right, i checked it again and it still matches this wiring diagram, which is the third one down...

    http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftec...2&woofer_imp=3

    that is the correct way right? And if i have dual .5 VC's this will make it a 2 ohm load, RIGHT?

    I'm so lost now



    New car...new build coming soon.

    Is all of your speaker wire the same gauge?

    no...could this really be the problem? The VC wires are 10 but they aren't long enough so i connected them with 12...

    Re: What is up with my sub wiring?

    Yes that could be. Less current will run through the 12 gauge and that equals less wattage. So change that and see if that works.

    Re: What is up with my sub wiring?

    i took out the 12 gauge and wired the VC's together directly, no change

    no it isn't loading oddly, but now i'm starting to worry that it is my box, which means a new one would be in order...that sux

    Hmmm. I'm lost. Make sure there is no air leaks in the chambers.

    its a common chamber box, and i just switched which sub was getting the power first, and its the one getting the power first thats being over powered, so i've came to that conclusion.

    EDIT: I'm going to try running it series/parallel, i'llbe running it at .5 i'll just have to watch my gains i guess...

    Re: What is up with my sub wiring?

    didn't turn out so well...

    i think i blew one of my subs when i press on the driver you can hear the VC's scratch

    but i was only running the gain at 1/4, that Z1 must put out crazy amounts of power, and it got REALLY hot in like 20 seconds, this sux, i've had this sub all summer i hook it up for 20 seconds and now i think its blown
