.5 ohms vs 1ohm on my electrical.

Recommended Posts

Everyone knows you can't get loud unless you run at .5 :sigh:

I feel like this is the 100th thread asking if I can run .5ohm on my electrical that is barely cutting it at 1. You said it yourself OP your fairly WEAK electrical. Answered your own question.

+1 on I wouldnt do it. But if you do it a fry your amp can we have some pictures??

I think theyre pretty neat. When the water runs down your crack as you let one out... its like shitting in a crockpot.

I know people who've had issues running the 1200 at half ohm. Plus, not sure how you can wire your subs from1 ohm to half ohm anyways.. It's iether 0.25/1/4 or 0.5/2/8

My system did just fine at 1ohm. Never had an issue. Now I was just wondering how much more current .5 would be and what about box raise? Sorry if this is 100th thread but it is a forum and I don't think its hurting anyone to answering this the 100th time. I'm a noob that is looking for knowledge from my fellow bassheads.

Here's how this works around here... I run .5 daily but will tell everyone else not to do it. Why? Because I, and everyone else who runs that knows there is a risk of blowing something and if it happens, we don't get pissed because we took a gamble and lost.

But when someone else asks, we all say NO because there is a chance it can fail on you. We don't want to tell you to do something that can and will screw up you equipment.

Here's my advice

Do you want a reliable daily system?

Yes - Wire to 1 and your amp will thank you

No - Wire to .5, then enjoy the possibility of blowing the amp as well as a shit ton of draw on your electrical for not much gain

Just remember... It wasn't all too long ago that wiring to 1 ohm was a new and scary thing ;)
