    Advise with wiring eight 4ohm loads

    Elemental Designs Nine.5:

    RMS Power @ 12.5v : Front Channels
    4 x 100 @ 4Ohm @ 0.05%THD
    4 x 55 @ 8Ohm @ 0.05%THD
    4 x 175 @ 2Ohm @ 0.05%THD
    2 x 350 @ 4Ohm @ 0.05%THD
    RMS Power (Subwoofer Channel) @ 12.5v :
    1 x 250w @ 4Ohm @ 0.09%THD
    1 x 450w @ 2Ohm @ 0.09%THD
    1 x 600w @ 1Ohm @ 0.09%THD

    I am on 16.5 volts charging (YES this amp can handle this voltage)
    so I figure the real power will be a little more..

    I went with 2 sets of Rockford Fosgate T2652-S components

    Each of the 4 tweeters (4ohm) is rated at 100RMS and 200MAX
    Also each mid (4ohm) is rated at 100RMS and 200MAX

    The nine.5 has crossovers built in for channels 1-4
    but also the rocksfords came with 4 crossovers that have a protection circuit for the tweeters.


    Could someone help me decide how to wire this please?
    I went over every variation on paper and cannot seem to figure out something that works

    Re: Advise with wiring eight 4ohm loads

    Series parallel would put my amp at this?

    2 x 350 @ 4Ohm @ 0.05%THD

    wouldnt that make it instantly bridged? since there would only be two of the four channels used?

    2 set of speakers per channel @ 2 ohms. Run tweets off front, mids of rears. Sub for sub if you have one.

    You better get ready for that amp to get warm playing a 2 ohm load through all channels.

    Re: Advise with wiring eight 4ohm loads

    If you have two sets of components, why not simply run one to each channel, using the passive crossovers included, like you normally would?

    Re: Advise with wiring eight 4ohm loads

    @RAM_Designs

    because the 4 crossovers supplied have two sets of inputs one for tweet, one for mid
    so to do that simple stuff I would need 8 channels?

    8 speakers at 4ohm

    4 channels at 100watts rms each

    one sub channel 600watts at 1ohm
    or 350 at 4ohm

    Re: Advise with wiring eight 4ohm loads

    So how many crossovers do you have and what power can they handle?

    Re: Advise with wiring eight 4ohm loads

    Does the amp have bandpass crossovers for each channel?
