Problem matching Sub & Amp Ohm's
Hi all I currently have 1x PP-SW120 http://www.fusionelectronics.com/car...p-12-Subwoofer
and am looking at getting another one. They each have Dual 2 Ohm Voice Coils, 500w RMS, 2000w Peak.
Looking at matching with the following amps.....
Simplest option: CA-DA41400 http://www.fusionelectronics.com/car...nnel-Amplifier
A 4 Channel Amp that will output 440w RMS x2 @ 4 Ohms, Which will almost perfectly suit the Sub's with a little bit of under powering.
More Painful Options: CA-DA12250 http://www.fusionelectronics.com/car...lock-Amplifier
or 2x CA-AM10900 http://www.fusionelectronics.com/car...lock-amplifier
Now the CA-DA12250 will output 1x 1100w RMS @ 1 Ohms, Only problem is getting the 2x PP-SW120 to 1 Ohm i can get to .5 Ohm or 2 Ohm.
The CA-AM10900 will output 1x 480w RMS @ 2 Ohms, Same problem getting a single PP-SW120 to run at a 2 Ohm load.
I looked around and came across some Resistors that i thought could be added in the mix to get my desired load, but wondering if it will effect the quality, the amount of power the sub will receive or anything else it may effect...
To get the desired load for the DA-DA12250:

Thanks for any insight and help.
