    NEW to car audio..for the most part

    So irecently bought a Mmats Juggernaut 15.
    and...
    im confused as to what ibought.
    all iknew when ibought it was it was 1400rms.
    what ido not know is that if it is 1 or 2 ohm...or 4? idoubt 4 though.
    it has a positive and a negative on one side and another positive and negative on the other side..so is it 1 or 2..or 4!?

    im also having a problem figuring out what im going to power it with..
    ive seen a hifonics amp 1800rms at 1 ohm, 1200rms at 2ohm and 650 at 4 ohm off sonics's wbsite
    the thing is..what if the jugg ends up being 1 ohm..isnt 1800 too much power?
    is it possible to set the "1ohm" sub at 2 ohm and feed it 1200? or does it just not work that way?
    ive been looking for something like my question^^^ all over the internet and cant find similar thoughts.
    ithink things will be easier if someone can tell me what the heck ibought with the picture attached.
    also..does anyone know what the jugg can max out at?---most ican feed it
    as-in...whats the highest amp ishould possibly get...once one of you guys figures out for sure what the sub is.

    P.S. iforgot to ask, ithink ibought an older jugg...are the new ones the same or is mine the same? or a bit different. just so ican base off the pdf file on their website on this jugg..

    thanks to whoever, if anybody reads this. and help out a newb
    because honestly idont understand much....BASS GOES BOOM

    Re: NEW to car audio..for the most part

    Why would you use a hifonics amp on a juggernaut sub that a very nice sub and a not so nice amp look at nicer amps. Like a vfl dc. Or sundown

    Re: NEW to car audio..for the most part

    Why are you putting "I" attached to the next word, like an apple product? Shit that bothers me.

    Test each coil, each pair of inputs on either side of the sub, with a multimeter and see what the resistance of each is.

    Do you have a multimeter? If so take it and measure the resistance between your positive and negative hookups on your sub, that will tell you your resistance, whether it is 1, 2 or 4 ohm(or whatever).






    With a dvc sub you have a few options of wiring it to get the ohm load you want on your amplifier.

    ^^^This. Go get a cheap DMM from Radio Shack or wherever (maybe 10-15 bucks for a cheap one) and it'll tell you what impedance the Jug is....

    so I bought the multimeter and now I don't know what to set it to..on the resistance side there is a 200, 2000, 20k..etc up to 2000k..what do I set it as?

    I forgot to show the needles to the sub.
    but the red was to positive and black neg.
    there are another pair of pos. and neg. on the other side..is that what is called DVC? the other side read 1.9

    Yes it is dvc=dual voice coil. 2ohm

    You can wire it to 1ohm or 4ohm

    I feel running at the higher ohms is better, easier on the electrical and amp, but it costs more to get the power.

    Re: NEW to car audio..for the most part

    You have a Dual 2 ohm sub (DVC)

    You can run it at 1 ohms

    Makes getting a cheap amp easy.

    I'd recommend the Audiopipe AD1500 or the MB Quart 1500

    Re: NEW to car audio..for the most part

    so wait the first guy said to get a high end amp. you say cheaper..
    AHHH!
    and iwas thinkin hifonics.
    now the only thing left is to know whats the max ishould get in an amp...as in..is a 1800rms at 1 ohm hifonics too much for it?
    also anyone know how to build a box for this? isnt it cheaper to build one? a lot more difficult I suppose.

    sorry, I dont want to keep this post/thread to last forever but just those questions would be great for someone to comment on.

    and BTW thanks to those who helped me figure this out.. I appreciate it.

    Re: NEW to car audio..for the most part

    I don't know crap about specific brands of amps, I would go with a quality amp someone will chime in. @mylows10 ;

    You want to have a box built/designed for your sub, the prefab generic boxes do no sub any justice. There are guys that can design a box for you and you can build it from there plans or they can design and build it for you and ship it to you.

    Re: NEW to car audio..for the most part

    ok I see.
    well I'll check every once in a while back if anyone else has something to say. ithink 100 is around how much for a box right? or a bit higher?
    I'll keep you guys updated on what I end up doing and the progress.
