4-Ohm vs 2-Ohm vs 1-Ohm


 4-Ohm vs 2-Ohm vs 1-Ohm
Question topic by killnarmy - 06-15-2009, 02:58 AM - Boxden > Whipz 'n Stereos (vehicles, sound systems)


Which wring set up would be best? My old system was set up to 8-Ohms and 2-Ohms, sounds like 2-Ohms just hits harder but I heard that the higher the Ohm the clean and clearer the bass, is this true? I'm about to get a 10" RE SE 4-Ohm sub and a 1200 hifonics brutus amp going at 1200x1ohm and 450x4ohm. How would Ya'll recommend me wiring it up? Also some amp tuning tips would be cool too otherwise I might take it to a shop so the amp can be tuned properly.

Its not a "best" situation when it comes to wiring set ups. The ohm load of the amp is based on the subs they are powering. So whatever subs you end up with will determine what wiring set up you use. The sub that you are getting will only allow you to run it at "4-ohms" (that is if it is a single 4 ohm sub). If you got another one, you can run the amp at 2 ohms.

yea the higher the cleaner the signal, but dont think youre goin 4 sq so it really doesnt matter.

with that setup ill recommend running it at 2 ohms.

I'm getting a 4-ohm dual voice coil sub, I thought you can wire it to either 4-ohms or 1-ohm. With the 2-ohm sub I used to have, I was able to wire it to 2-ohm and 8-ohm. So if I wire it to 4 - ohms and the sub says it can handle 600 watts rms at 4 ohms, can I turn my amp all the way up if the amp powers 4 ohms at 450 watts rms? Or should just I set it up at 1 ohm to push 1000 watts peak?

^Thanks man, I guess I got confused with my other sub. Maybe I shoulda got the 2-ohm DVC sub. So if my sub is 4 ohm dvc 600rms how much is it gonna push if wired to 2 ohms?

With 1 4 ohm DVC sub, you will be able to run it at 2 ohms or 8 ohms. 1 2 ohm DVC sub, you will be able to run it at 1 ohm or 4. You will get roughly 750/800 watts at 2 ohms.
