    wiring subs to .1 ohm

    I have a DC audio 1.2 k, and 2 DVC 4 ohm subs, now the amp has 2 sets of speaker inputs 2 pos, 2 neg, do I still have to wire them together the traditional way or can I wire them separate? And do the 2 sets of inputs bridge internally? Thanks

    Wire all positives together and all negtives together. Called Parallel wiring

    Like that ^

    OH. I see what you're asking. Yes, the outputs are internally bridged. So each sub could have it's own positive and negative terminal if you wish to do it that way.

    Re: wiring subs to .1 ohm

    Ok makes sense, do my end wires pos&neg have to come off each sub or can I run the final wires off of one sub?

    Re: wiring subs to .1 ohm

    They do get wired together. Through the amp. Those output leads are bridged inside the amp..

    Re: wiring subs to .1 ohm

    So would I still have to wire the subs together or could I go separate with each sub having a jumper then + & - off of each sub?

    Re: wiring subs to .1 ohm

    You can do either. they both bring you to the same final impedance.

    Re: wiring subs to .1 ohm

    Ok so that diagram u showed I wouldn't have to wire them together at all? Just a +&- jumper on each sub then the other +&- to the amp? Repeat for each sub?

    If you wanna use all the terminals, it gets wired like so:

    Wire ea sub to a 2ohm load back to on set of +,and - terminals,and the amplifier bridges internally for dropping to the 1ohm load on the subs impedience.This amplifier and others like it with dual connections are made to eliminate that extra Jumper exposed wire from sub to sub
