Say if one had 6 dual 2 ohm subwoofers and a taramps bass 8k 1 ohm, what is the optimal wiring diagram? I don't know why I cant wrap my head around this so flame me all you want. 

so 2 banks of 3 subs wired 1.3 ohms each bank final load be 2.6

3 banks of 2 subs 1 ohm each bank but then the final load be 3 ohms 

….im retarded lately...teething baby = no sleep

You can wire to .66 but I'm not sure what the bass 8k is stable to. If you're talking about a hd8k you shouldn't wire it below 1 ohm

Six DVC drivers with Voice Coils in Series / Parallel





Six Dual Voice Coil Speakers in Series / Parallel


Connecting the two voice coils of each driver in series (+ to -) and the drivers themselves in parallel (+ to +, etc.) will result in the following impedances:

  • Dual–8 Ohm Subwoofers: 2.67 Ohms
  • Dual-6 Ohm Subwoofers: 2 Ohms
  • Dual–4 Ohm Subwoofers: 1.3 Ohms
  • Dual–2 Ohm Subwoofers: 0.7 Ohm
  • Dual–1.5 Ohm Subwoofer: 0.5 Ohm

Might want to ask if the Bass 8k is also .5 stable. I haven't seen many of them in the US yet to know.
