    Wiring 6 single 4ohm speakers need help

    Just a quick question guys, i have 6 svc 4 ohm apex jr super 8's and I would just like to know what are my wiring options?
    On 12volt.com it only shows up to 4 speakers, so not sure if I need a 2ohm stable or 1ohm stable amp ect. Thanks for the help guys!

    2.6ohm would be the easiest I guess.

    .6 is an option.

    I'd just wire them down to .66 and run an amp that has been proven to handle <1ohm operation with ease. I'm not familiar with how much power those subs need in a normal install, but the Sundown 1500D comes to mind...I ran mine at 1/2ohm and never had issues.

    Re: Wiring 6 single 4ohm speakers need help

    So 2.6 or .66 ohms?

    Also, anywhere I can see a diagram on how to wire them to those ohms?

    Not really, but I can make one if you need one.

    3 in parallel and 3 in parallel , take the final load from each 3 speaker set and wire it in series that will get 2.66

    all positives to one terminal and all negatives to the other terminal will get you .66
