    How do I wire 1 Inverted and one Reg Mounted sub?

    They're 2 Rockford Fosgate P2s Dual 4 ohm..

    How do I wire it so I can have only one inverted and one reg mounted.. the box is ported to 38hz btw..

    Thanks

    Why are you doing that?

    And to answer your question, I believe you just need to reverse the polarity on one of them...could be wrong though.

    wire the inverted one opposite of the regular mounted one.

    Re: How do I wire 1 Inverted and one Reg Mounted sub?

    to be honest.. I just wanna change up the look of it.. no real reason but just wanna do somethin to change the look and I think this would be cool..
    and to Compjake,
    How do I wire the inverted one opposite of the reg one?

    Right now I have left side - to + right side and then the other - from right side and + from other side to the box terminal. ?? I hope that makes sence..

    I've read some thing about wiring in phase?? And reversed polarity but have no idea how to do either one??

    Use the power of imagination to pretend that the polarity of the inverted sub's terminals are opposite of what they are marked. Or what those two guys said^ And btw, the Fb of 38Hz was completely useless, irrelevent information for this discussion. Hope that helps.

    I just want to here some theories how this happened.
    In case you were wondering I drive a tahoe and when I say loud I mean loud to the point that your ears will pop and it starts hurting.

    I assume your trying to wire it to 1ohm right?

    You need to leave the wiring on the subs alone, they should be identical. But at the amplifier, switch the leads for the inverted sub.

    EDIT: and no that pic isn't right...that left sub is wayy off

    see i have it hooked up to 4 ohms like this..

    they both go soldered on to the box terminal internally and then from the outside of the box I just hook up neg. and pos. to my amp.
