2 fosgate power 1500bdcp pushing 2 audiopipe TXX-BDC4-15D2


Recommended Posts

I have a wiring question. The two audio pipe 15s are 2 ohm speakers. I want to hook one Rockford Fosgate power 1500 bdcp amp to each 15 with a final load of 2 ohms. Is that possible or should I have gotten the 4 ohm speakers? The wiring diagram shows 2 ohm speakers at a 2 ohm load but it is coming off a single two channel amp I want one amp for each speaker to finish at 2 ohms

Yeah but I can't get it to a 2 ohm load unless I have 4 ohm subwoofers correct? From what I was looking at I need a 4 ohm subwoofer for each amp to get to a 2 ohm load. I've already tried to cancel the order I'm just waiting on confirmation but apparently I can't get the two ohm subwoofer to run at 2 ohms if it's just one.

Yeah but it's not the power that I'm going for the subs hit different at different ohms I believe. I always thought that the 2 ohm overall load sounded better than a 1 ohm. 1 ohm hits deeper base but the 2 ohm seems to hit a wider spectrum of bass than just the 1 ohm.  Its for rap music and I always thought that the 2 ohm sounded better. But from what I've seen I can't get a two ohm subwoofer to pull two ohms off of that amp unless I use both channels but then they're only going to get 750 each. The subs I want to use are 1400 RMS so I still want to get the full power of my amp.

If you are using the rf1500s then you don’t have 2 channel amps. They are single channel and the only wiring that makes any sense for you at all is wire the coils in parallel. One amp per sub.

Actually no, if you wire coils in series you get 4 ohm, one sub per amp and you will be sourcing 1000W to each sub nominally (look at the table I left you above) but since rockford fosgate are under rated I am pretty sure you will be getting like 1200W to each sub.
