Sub 2 Ohm Amp Wiring Diagram
Your amp won t like this and will probably shut down or overheat.
Sub 2 ohm amp wiring diagram. The amplifier produces 750 watts rms power at 2 ohms so this is a perfect setup. One or all of the wiring options shown in this application may not be compatible with your amplifier because of low impedance loads. The resulting impedance ohm load is considered the nominal impedance seen by the amplifier. Single voice coil wiring options.
Step 1 choose the of subwoofers you will wire in your system from one amplifier output. Check the amplifier s owners manual for minimum impedance the amplifier will handle before hooking up the speakers. One dvc driver with voice coils in parallel. The second speaker output terminal is there for convenience and if you hook a speaker to each terminal it would result in the two speakers being wired in parallel cutting the total impedance in half.
Now click view wiring options. They show a typical single channel wiring scheme. Subwoofer wiring diagrams for 1 ohm 2 ohm 4 ohm and 6 ohm dual voice coil subwoofers and for 4 ohm and 8 ohm single voice coil subwoofers. Diagram shows two dvc 2 ohm subs with each subwoofer s voice coils wired in series to form a 4 ohm speaker 2 2 4 then the two 4 ohm subs are wired in parallel with each other to form a single 2 ohm load.
The picture says mono amplifier 2 ohms which is just what we needed. Step 2 specify 2 or 4 ohm single voice coil or 2 or 4 ohm dual voice coil subwoofer s the subwoofer wiring diagram tool will then display two wiring options with the final impedance at the amplifier. Wire a 2 ohm sub to each terminal and the amp sees one ohm as its total load. 4 ohm mono is equivalent to 2 ohm stereo.
Speakers are usually connected in series or parallel well really most often in parallel which affects the total resistance an amp will see. Minimum speaker loads for wiring a 4 channel amp to 4 speakers and a subwoofer diagram showing how a car amplifier s ohm rating works with speakers. The zx750 1 is a monoblock single channel amplifier so choose mono under the amp type in the subwoofer wiring diagram tool. One dual voice coil speaker in parallel.
Connecting the two voice coils of the driver in parallel to to will result in the following impedances. Sadly if you wire the diamond subs in other ways they either will be too low of a load for the amp 1 2 ohm or can t develop full power wired as 2 8 ohm speakers.
