  • Need a little assistance Please.

    First I apologize if this is in the wrong section.....there is just so many sections at this site.

    I haven't used my subs in over a year because of a lack of an amp. I have ordered the Clarion DPX1851 to power my Pioneer TS-W256C Single Voice Coil 10" subs.

    With my old amp the wiring was straight forward as it had two sets of speaker terminal outs, but the amp (now blown) left my subs way under powered.

    With this new amp from the few pictures I see online it has only one set of speaker terminals out.

    How do I hook up two subs to this amp? Can I just hook both subs into the one set of terminals which would then run at 4 ohms right? Or is there another way? With only being single voice coil type subs.....I don't think there is a way to run at 2 ohms is there?

    Any help would be great.

    I do plan on upgrading my subs within the next six months but for now this is what I have.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, this page says they're 4Ω speakers, so if you hook them both to the same output (parallel), they'll present a 2Ω load to the amp.

        Awesome information. Thanks to both of you. I am going to run these at 2 ohms because the amp is 2 ohm stable.
