Hi , I would like to know if it possible to wire 2 dual 4 ohm sub down to .5 ohm ? If yes , how ? Thanks


No, Ohm's law works like this.

Electrical resistance is measured in Ohm's
In a parallel circuit, resistance is lowered. This is measurable with a simple formula.

1/ (1/r1+ 1/r2+ 1/r3+ 1/r4) = Final ohm load

Your voice coils are the r, and you have 4 of them. so 4 4ohm coils in this formula are

1/ (1/4+ 1/4+ 1/4+ 1/4) = 1ohm

That is the lowest you can go with what you have.

Series circuits increase resistance.

The only way to get more power, in a safe manner is to get a larger amp that does more power at 1ohm.

To get a lower ohm load on that amp to 2 woofers, you need to use Dual 2ohm coil woofers.
But your increase in power will be very small compared to the increase in heat, distortion, and danger to equipment.

i still run them... at or above 1 ohm there awsome

you scruured? lol pussy

if i need more power i buy a bigger or but the same amp and have 2 i will not go below 1 ohm ever again

have had nothing go pop since then and that was years ago

lmao whats the point of staying on topic the OP asked if he can get his dual 4's to .5 ohms

NO YOU CAN NOT

hes lucky he didnt flamed for trying to run .5 ohms with his lack of knowlage

Sig'd!

But OP, just don't do it. Can't wire that low with 2 dvc 4 AND if your amp isn't stable at .5, you shouldn't run it at .5.

the only time you should ever really use it is if your system has a dip at whatever the bass boost freq is. dont use is as a "it makes my shit bang" knob.
