Recommended Posts

Got a new re audio srx 12 inch dual 2 ohm I wired it 4ohm but when I test my wires going to the amp it reads 6.8 ohms. I double checked the box and it states dual 2 ohm not the 4 ohm one. Anyone had this problem with the srx 12? Or any other sub? Did I just mess up the wiring or r they just high? Any thoughts?

Sounds a little too high.....double check your wiring here

If everything checks out ......try using a different multi- meter

Only running ~300rms to them until I figure this out, I don't want to have the wiring messed up and blow it before I can give them any real power. What sized box were using? Just curious

i used a prefab BBox slot,, it worked good i think it was tuned to 38hz but not sure..

Test the resistance of your prongs first, touch them together and see what the ohm reading comes out to. Then measure the subs normally and subtract that number from the ohm reading of the subs and you'll get the correct reading.

Checked using that site and I have it wired "right" never had any issues with this ddm, check my other subs with it and it's spot on

do they play ok with power? what u runing for a amp? 6.8 ohm is way off
