    which amp(s) do you have in mind..2 D4 subs wired to 1 ohm = + to + and - to - all the way to the amp :

    Re: =HELP= ohm's amp and speaker

    ok Its so hard to explain stuff to you all!!!
    If the amps are .5 ohm each, strapped will make them 1ohm stable right???
    my subs will be hooked to 1 ohm

    Re: =HELP= ohm's amp and speaker

    So your amps are .5 ohm stable right? So you're asking if you strap them will they make 1 ohm? I don't know what difference it makes when you're going to run your speakers @ 4 ohm? First off what kind of subs are they and what's the voice coil configuration? Meaning are they single coil 4 ohm, dual coil 2ohm, etc.? Without knowing what subs they are and how are you're going to wire them we can't answer the question. The amp has nothing to do with ohms. The subwoofers do.

    Now I get your question! Lol! Unfortunately my experience with this subject might make me put my foot in my mouth. Wait a few minutes and I'm sure someone with more experience will chime in. I've only seen people strapping amps to end at a 2 ohm load. One ohm load strapped just seems like a heavy strain to me but I could be wrong.
