Dual voice coil issue
Yo guys wassup I am about to hook up my 4 channel amp up to my two subs and two rear speakers. The problem I'm having is finding out how I am going to wire my subs to the amp. I do not want to bridge them off the amp I want then on their own channels for best quality. My amp puts out 500 watts RMS per channel. The subs are rated at 250 RMS but they are duel voice coil. My question is should I just use one of the connection terminals instead of both or wire them both up? I always had single voice coils so it's kinda new to me. Trying to keep it at 4 ohms. Thx for any input and pod are down below. That bad boy amp gets me excited. Had to add that in their

RE: Duel voice coil issue
Go here and put in the specs for the speaker and see how it can be wired.

If you wire only one coil, you lose half the speaker. You need to figure out how to wire both coils and then to the amp and figure out the ohms to the amp.

RE: Dual voice coil issue
When I had my subs, they were both 2 ohm DVC and each wired in series to be 4 ohm, then wired together parallel to be 2 ohm at the amp.

RE: Dual voice coil issue
Just got done getting everything installed but it is no where as near as loud as it should be, rear speakers and subs. Gona test a few things then if I can't figure it out I will put my my specs and pics to get any suggestions.
