    Switching from DVC to SVC

    i currently have a 1600w 4 channel amp powering one DVC 12" kicker and 2 tweeters. The tweeters are on separate channels 1 and 2 and then the DVC sub is on a bridged channel 3/4 and it works great!

    then i recently got an SVC infinity 12" sub, not sure on the power rating and when i hooked it up replacing my DVC sub, my overload protect keeps tripping on the amp

    ive tried putting it to 1 channel instead of bridging channel 3/4 and still does the same thing
    please help

    Re: Switching from DVC to SVC

    1) Instead of asking specs, I'll just ask make/model of the amp and look it up.

    2) What are the Ohm ratings of the voice coils for the DVC sub? What is it for the SVC?

    3) How was the amp wired to the DVC? Did you have a voice coil on Ch 1 and one on Ch 2?(Amp was not actually bridged if so...)

    Or was the dvc sub paralleled (or series) and you used Channel 3's + with Channel 4's - ?

    If we had to guess, I would say the DVC was wired at 4 ohms and the SVC is a 2 ohm....and the amp just isnt stable in that condition
