    Strapped Amps Wiring Correction?

    Awesome info! Thank you so much, this is the kind of feedback i like to read... Im starting to see a trend. That there are less benefits to strap them than i misunderstood. How sensitive to variations will 2 gain matched amps be to 2 subs in the same enclosure? Bc i doubt he will be interested in building a new box right now.

    That sounds like what may be the best plan. This project is my buddies, so we will see if he will wna invest in the tool. If i can reliably and safely get away w setting the xovers thru head unit, i may jus go on n unstrap them like everyone is suggesting

    Strapped Amps Wiring Correction?

    Thanks Kyblack! Must be a common misconception eh? Well, as my name suggests, i am here to learn so... You addressed another question i was unsure of - If its a good idea to use the x-over on head unit and run amps unfiltered?

    Strapped Amps Wiring Correction?

    Oh i didnt know that. Guess i figured it had more of a benefit than tuning... So how can i accurately set the subsonic and hpf on amps to exactly the same as each other if i choose to gain match instead?

    Thx RB, The VC are wired series on each sub, and the subs are wired in parallel to each other. Off of only 1 positive and 1 negative terminals in the box. So you say i can take both positves and both negatives from the amp and hook them together into the same terminals on the box?

    Strapped Amps Wiring Correction?

    From my understanding... I can get the same amt of power, except i can get it at 2 ohms which running 6000 watts, we are tryna keep it as cool as possible. I can control both amps gain and xover points off 1 amp which means i dont hafta worry about getting them exactly the same. - noobie I dont know how reliable it is to accurately get them that close if i could - OCD pranoia Other than that, no particular reason... thats my plan B tho

    Strapped Amps Wiring Correction?

    Yea the details of the connection points have me unsure if im translating it to my application correctly. I believe i am, but w the lack of terminals in the rendering i have not fully convinced myself... (edit: And im not sure if i can safely add both positives, negatives from each amp into the same terminal. This is why im thinking i need another set of terminals) Im one of those dot my i's cross my t's, double check n then recheck i didnt cross my eyes sorta guys lol

    Can anyone confirm or correct if this would get me at 2 ohms? This thing should bang and we almost have the subs broken in, so its ab that time to turn the power up some.!

    12" sub Box build

    I have some programs on my laptop, but ive used this before https://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/boxcalcs.asp#rec
  14. As the title states... What is the most unconventional, innovative or risky thing youve done in car audio? Cant help but respect those who are not afraid of pushing the envelope or thinking outside the box! (so to speak lol) Lets hear it!

    Strapped Amps Wiring Correction?

    This is how i interpret the above photo... Seems to me i need 2 positives and 2 negatives coming out the box where each sub gets its own set? Correct me if im wrong pls
