    Running a 4ohm single voice coil sub at 2ohm?

    I am having a single voice coil 4ohm sub with 325w rms I am looking to buy a mono amplifier as i want to make full use of the rms. Also looking to buy another similar single voice coil 4 ohm sub with 300w rms(not 325w rms as earlier because it’s unavailable) Ques1 Is it safe to run two 4ohm...

    Impedance technical discussion

    Ok, decided to put this in the general discussion section because it will deal with subs and amps. I will also be posting this on CACO and MAF to get more information. I understand that impedance rise isn't always a bad thing. Enclosures are often very efficient when impedance is the highest...

    Can I run at 1 ohm?

    Hi, I have a Pioneer GM-D8604 4 channel amplifier. Currently I have it pushing two speakers and 1 subwoofer fine. However, I want to add two more speakers to it, but I don't know if I'll be causing damage because my two current speakers are 2 ohm and on channel a. The sub is 4 ohm and on...

    Amp wiring

    so you hear hype about a 1 ohm or even .5 ohm system. but why does that crap matter? If your system is 2 ohms at 2000 watts or 1 ohm at 2000 watts, are they not the same? I'm curious because I'm deciding whether to buy the 2 ohm dual voice coil or 4 ohm dual voice coil version of the same...

    A speakers impedance

    I looked all over google for this answer and can't find it. What determines a speakers ohms? is it the voice coil, the magnet, or both? does the thickness of the voice coil or how long the coil is or how big the magnet is have anything to do with it?
