    Bridging Amp

    I just installed my (1) eD 13Ov.2 Dual 2 ohms and the store who installed it said it isn't gonna be loud because I have a 2 channel amp (Rockford Fosgate P6002). So i guess i have to bridge it myself.

    I read the manual and it shows me how but i don't know if the sub is wired correctly. Here is a picture:




    Can someone tell me if its right or not? if not, how should i wire it

    right, i'm sure they have no clue what they are talking about. Without a doubt, you should throw their advice to the wind and start hooking things up any old way. It will eventually get loud.

    That speaker is wired in series. If it is a dual 2 ohm speaker, then that would equal 4 ohms. If they are dual 4 ohm speakers, then it equals 8. Both would be safe to run on that amplifier if you bridge the amp.

    You could run the amp in stereo to each voice coil as well. 600 watts X1 = 600 watts (like you have it wired). 300 watts x 2 = 600 watts (running it in stereo). They are basically the same thing. just do NOT wire it in parallel, i.e. + to +, - to -. You will blow up the amp.

    Meh, won't "BLOW UP" the amp, that's slightly overkill ;P but it'll overheat the amplifier quickly.

    Your sub is DVC 2ohm, so your wiring is correct, just bridge the amp to get a mono signal. And Will Albers is right, you can run it to stereo if you'd like as well, one lead to each coil.

    And what store installed it??

    Looks fine to me too--if you have one dual 2 ohm voice coil sub, your setup should work great. That's a decent sub amp, too. FYI--on RF amps, the outer positive and outer negative are used to bridge the amp, like so:
    use this for the positive --> + - + - <-- this for the negative

    how is that sub working out with your amp?

    I have that amp, and I'm looking for a clean sounding sub to match it, or a pair of subs, i've been looking for specs on the sub, but they're hard to come by, so just wondering how good the combo is working out for you

    Don't ever do that. If the amp can handle the load at stereo it can handle the load at bridged mono. 2 ohm stereo = 4 ohm mono.
