    PLEASE HELP!!!

    I have just recently purchased 3 12in Audiobahn ALUM12X (6 ohm DVC)subwoofers along with the Audiobahn A2300HCX 2400 watts( in 1 ohm bridged) 2-channel amplifier. I am new with car audio and this is my first system.. how would I hook up my subs so that I could get the most out of my amp? I know that with the 6 ohm DVC I can choose either 3ohm or 12 ohm but with 3 subs how would i connect that to my 2 channel amp? Wire the subs in parallel or in a series? Any advice would help, Thanks.

Then parallel the coils of each sub, then parallel all of the subs to the amp. BLING BLING 1ohm mono load.<br /> <br /> [ 01-07-2002: Message edited by: ramos ]

    try ramos' method first.... just make sure your electrical system is up to pushing that much wattage at that low of a resistance... just keep an eye on your voltmeter, and you should rock out...
