2 NSv3 15's 2/4 Rockford 2500's

Recommended Posts

New to forum trying to read these on a phone very hard to search sorry if questions have been asked and answered before. I have 2 NSv3 15's dual 2ohm and 2 Rockford 2500, each amp hooked to each speaker at 1ohm. I've noticed people running 2 amps on 1 speaker by hooking each amp to each voice coil. My question is it possible to use 4 Rockford 2500s by hooking each one to each voice coil (would be 2ohm loads). Would this be too much power? I have seen videos of people pushing 10k 12k but those are being done by 2 amps. Does Anyone know if this is safe and can be done? Or just a bad idea.

Thank you.

You can do it, or you can run the amps strapped (like it's only one amplifier).

Is it necessary ? I don't think so. You may need more knowledge and experience.

Go to the RF page and see if those amps are strappable. I think so, but you'd better check.

It be a waste to run 4 amps at 2 ohms with those amps especially if they are not the bdcp constant power series, even if they are the bdcp models I would say you might as well recone to dual 1 ohm coils right away to get the most power out of them. Just adding 2 more amps and running them all at 2ohms you wont really hear much of a difference.

Yes they are the Rockford 2500 Constant Power. They are linkable with sync cables but only when they are hooked to 2ohms at the lowest. The Rockford 2500 Constant Power also says it has 2500 RMS at both 1 and 2ohms. So I figured if I ever blow a speaker later I could recone them to total 2ohms each then be able to link them with the sync cord for 5k. That was why I asked. I didn't know 2 2500s hooked to each speaker voice coil at 2ohms wouldnt make much of a diffence since the rockfords2500s put almost the same amount of power in 1 or 2ohm. Or would 4 Rockford 2500 hooked directly to each coil at 1ohm (after blown or reconed like audiofanaticz recommended) then would the 4 amp setup be worth it? And which would be better 4 Rockford 2500s directly to each voice coil @1ohm or a pair of Rockford 2500s synced to 5000 @2ohms to each speaker?

Two of those amps per sub at 2 ohm would definitely be a noticeable difference over 1 per sub at 1ohm.

Whether or not you should do it is something you need to decide,

The subs should take it fine if you know what you're doing.

That being said a lot of people's definition of "music" is a clipped 30 hz sine wave with some 80 IQ knuckle head grunting about committing crimes and his genitals.
