    Strapping and woofer ohm load

    Is this correct???
    2-1ohm amps Strapped making it 2 ohms= Sub needs to be 2 ohms
    1-dvc 4ohm sub
    so i took both termial +'s and connected it to the master amp
    and took both -'s and connected it to the slave amp
    Is it going to be 2ohms all together?
    or 4 ohms lol ?

    List what equipment your actually working with... (not all amps are strappable).
    Knowing what you've got will aid in knowing how to wire them... When strapping amps - each sees half the load, so if you've got a 2-ohm load, each amp will see 1-ohm.

    depends on the amp . but if they are strappable .its master amp speaker + is the + from the sub,then the speaker - from the master amp to the - of the slave amp,then the speaker + from the slave amp to the - of the sub .you must also link the 2 amps .one master the other slave .
