gotta love people who dont even know how to wire up subs and they are out trying to run at impedance that takes some knowledge and know how

and some decent sized balls.


ehhh its when you drop below that is when it takes some balls. Now i know more what im doing than 3-4 years ago i wont run an amp at or above 1ohm. I ran my 1100.1 daily on it and my 2 D9s strapped at 1ohm. My stetsoms would have been a little iffy but i bet they could have done .5 no problem but i didnt quite have the balls yet to find out

.25ohm, batteries wired in series for 24v. get a timer that will show how many milliseconds it takes to get to the center of a FET.

.25 ohms is where its at never have the amp play above 1 ohm even on music

i like fire balls coming out of my amps!!!!


what i got at .5 ohms

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.
