    Dual Voice coil 12" installation..

    Hey i have 2 12" volfenhag 1000w 500w rms subs, with a dual box, they 2 12's are Dual Voice Coils, i was wondering how to hook this up to my Amp which is 2000w, a drawing or a very "lamens term" text tutorial is preffered, i dont know much of the "jargon" or slang words for things on the amp and etc. so in the easiest words could you please explain or draw out how to hook up both subs to my amp for best sound and loudest i know the number of Ohms has a part in that. Thx in advance.

    well i found this info for my sub and somepictures according to this info which setup do i use?
    Maximum power output @ 2ohm 1000W x 2 = 2000W
    Power output:
    500Wx2 @ 2ohm (1000W)
    250Wx2 @ 4ohm (500W)
    Bridged Power 640Wx1 @ 4ohm

    2ohm stable stereo
    Tri-mode capable

    Need to know a couple things:

    1- Are your subs dual 2-ohm, or dual 4-ohm? (the above diagram shows dual 4-ohm)

    2- Are those your amp specs posted above? If not, I will need them.

    Then we can give you the best setup option.

    The best way for you to wire this is not together, but separate.


    This way, each sub gets 500 watts. So you will connect each sub to it's own channel. Any ??'s

    so for each one of my subs just do that wiring, and when you mean channel that means you connect the "+" and "-" onto different "spots" on the amp, i couldnt think of a better word but what i mean was how there are like colored pieces of metal showing if its + or - and by different i mean like sub 1 goes to a diff. + than sub 2 does and same w/ the -'s if that is correct please let me know thx for the help.

    yeah, kinda. You should have 2 pairs of speaker inputs (+/-,+/-), speaker 1 will connect to the left +/-, and speaker 2 will connect to the right +/-. Get it? If you have a friend that knows what to do, it might be a good idea to have him look things over.

    yeah i do have a friend that installed this.... the first time, the subs blew but luckily i have a 1 year warranty and i think they blew (within 1.5 months) b/c the way he wired them... this is how he wired it.

    That is exactly how they should be wired, just like the diagram I posted. What caused them to blow probably was an improperly set gain control (on the amp), which introduced a clipped signal to the subs.
