Sometimes the amplifier is installed in a ventilated cupboard so it is never seen nor touched. For more detail see Many practical examples of the methods outlined above have been explored in the comments below. You can connect this way? Sorry for so many questions but i believe you guys have the best advice. Would it be better to bridge a 4 channel amp to run the sub and 2 speakers, or would it be better to get a mono channel amp for the sub and a 2 channel amp for the speakers? Overheating or permanent damage can result. If you are having a party and want loud music outside, just make sure the workshop and lounge room are turned down — this reduces the total load and this effectively means only one or two pairs of speakers are connected to the amplifier.
Hi Parag, Using a speaker selector switch will look after the impedance for your, but it does reduce the power. Or, you could wire one sub per terminal set, and then run two pairs of wires to the amp, it's electrically the same. If that lack of power is not an issue, you can wire them together. Does wiring into series make it safe for my amp or will it still overhead due to the 2Ohm voice coils? With about 600w rms from each sub i would need atleast 900w rms from my amp to be within the 75% amp power rating. I don't know how your 2-channel amp could handle that. Remember to allow a volume control for the lounge room speakers so they can be controlled also. This way, the volume for the speakers for the workshop is controlled in the workshop.
Whats your advice on wiring? Can I bridge the voice coils or would that demand too much from the amp? Each channel door i have 2 -4 ohm speakers and 1 tweeter. Mono lock or 2 channel and how many watts? His full range of products can be seen on his Web site www. How and what type of amp do I buy to make this work properly. Normally, you shouldn't wire different impedance subwoofers together to the same amplifier because the lower impedance sub will get twice the power of the higher impedance sub, possibly under-powering one while over-powering the other. It would be best to solder terminals to the ends of the wire to prevent the rust problem.
Now the question i have os crutchfield is really nice pricin on alot of things and well i wanna be able to get another 10 wit a box. If you want a question answered about your system, you must identify your equipment by brand names and model numbers. How would I go about doing that, in order to reach maximum sound? The cone movement for both coils will be identical, and will not cause distortion problems. Failure to plan for a safe cabinet power rating could result in blown speakers if the amplifier output is higher than what the cabinet is designed for. As an alternative, you could wire each sub to a set of output terminals.
A voice coil changes its impedance depending on what frequency the signal is. Which would mean 4 sets of rca's. These things are monsters, I'm having trouble finding an amp that can power these things without buying something that has way to much power. One amp per sub, wired. Almost all car receivers are designed to work with 4-ohm speakers only.
They should be not be considered in a commercial install or for use with high output power amplifiers. Both are 500 watts each. Gauging the amp output monitor it clips anywhere after 35 vac. The end result is a strange and poor sounding stereo. The two 4 ohm speakers create a new 2 ohm load.
How would I wire the sub to 2 ohm? Is there anyway to wire my subs in my box to get a 2 ohm load to have more power? I already had a 1 cubic foot sealed box and I purchased a 1. . I can actually hear the bass kicking and thumping now as before it seemed well under driven despite the speakers being rated at 350 watt rms 750 watt peak. But if i can get more from the speaker and the amp. The problem is that if you change something in impedance or staying the same with the 4 ohm speakers or at risk to burn or affect something. Lastly, want to make sure this amp can handle three of these speakers. If your receiver doesn't have a dedicated subwoofer output, you can take the preamp outputs of one of the 4-channel amps and use that for the sub amp's input.
When subs are wired together their individual impedances don't change, the amplifier's sense of what load it's driving does. Note: When you wire dual voice coils and multiple subs together, the resulting total impedance is not always simple to figure out or practical to use. Practical Considerations in Wiring Four Speakers The above installations will work, but they have some limitations. If i wire them in parallel, would that give me 1 ohm per sub and would i need two amplifiers to make this happen safely? Thats the last thing I need happening to mine. He was asking me about many different things having to do with wiring up the home, but one question in particular had to do with integrating a whole house distributed audio system. I know that you can wire them for a total of 4 ohms, but I would like to run them at 2 ohms for the advantage in power.
I have looked through a lot of sizes and dimensions and it seems that I am going to need slim subs to accommodate the slim depth in the box. Geoff Hi Geoff, I am in the process of building a new home and we are trying to configure the audio system. Or if either of those amps could even power those subs? It increases it a very small amount as far as your ears are concerned. Do you have any idea what the problem could be? The first resource is best for finding the power wires for your car. I need to purchase two woofers for this system. I am going to use one amp for rear subs and full range pillar mounted speakers and the second amp to power the front full range door speakers and door mounted tweeters. These wiring diagrams have it all! Loads that are wired together in series result in a total resistance impedance that is equal to the sum of all loads or resistances in the circuit.
