Strapped vs Gain matched

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Would love some feedback, if you will, since this has been on my mind a while now... If you had 2 subs (dual 2 ohm) in a common chamber w 2 amps strapped, will there be any negative effects if both subs were wired to their own amp, even tho they are both using the same airspace?

I have the equipment to gain match them, but just curious what kinda issues can arise due to them being independently powered. Will there be any decreased output if there are any electrical variations between the 2 amps?

Anybody? Would love some feedback on this bc I'm thinking I'd like to wire them separately if it's a good idea. Thanks guys!

I myself,  hate strapping. Have always and for a long long while ran a big board per driver. ....

I've always preferred it over strapping. Ick...

How the crescendo highs sound I’m looking around 

I love em! Went from Polk MM6501 to the PWX n they get loud n clear. I do like the Polks natural midrange sound, but that's what a dsp is for right.

Hellya, that's awesome. Are those in a single chamber? My concern is if there are any issues when its 2 power sources in a single airspace.
