Default Re: new amp?

well it didnt do what I was hoping// I called sound cubed and was told I didnt know what I am doing // wiring 2 d-4 subs parallel in each box and series out side would not result in 4ohm with 2 leads plugged in and plugging all 4 leads would not result in 1 ohm //
is my math flawed? If I series inside its 8ohm and I can only achieve 4 or 16
so parallel inside makes 2 so I can achieve 4 or 1

Default Re: new amp?

I had heard good things about sound cubed so maybe its just my exp
I wrote this on my rma
This amp gets hot!!I //wired my 2 skar vd-10 d4 at 2 ohms (parallel) in each box// and then series outside the box 4 ohms// and this this gets major league hot! // I got agm battery 2 gauge marine grade 2 g wire both - and + // I got big3 plus a few I did earlier I never removed just added on 2 g //200 amp alt// I tried it at 4 ohm and its hot enough I got smoke from the vents let it cool and scratched my head didnt have any thump to it wired to 1 ohm tried again and tried to up my cross over it makes more sound the higher I bumped the cross over freq on the head unit started at 63 at 120 hz it started to work better but sounds like garbage and again enough heat to see the wisps again they seem like oil smoke as they dont smell acrid very little smoke but my work light makes em obvious
I have the low pass at full 200hz so my hu can do the work filtering and sub at 10hz // sealed I didnt really need the subsonic // gain is at half which I know is a bit high with 4v out of the hu// lci I kept in line for kicks
I wired it at 4ohm and at 1 it still gets hot
since I seemed to have confused your tech I have 2+ and 2- take one of each and put in outer + and outer - the cross the others and 4ohm
I took the other 2 that I crossed uncross and put in open + and open - and now its 1ohm
also I have 2jbl gtx 500 that make these 2skar woofers work well 2ohms each so wiring to the new amp is simple

Holy crap, your sentences are tough to read, especially when you substitute periods with slashes.

You should be able to achieve a final load of 4 ohms, which shouldn't be a challenge for that amp at all. Have you verified with a meter that you wired them correctly? Is the amp grounded properly? Do you have any photos of the setup that might be helpful?

Default Re: new amp?

what wrong with my 2gauge??
with the woofers I got I cant exceed 1500 watts rms so 2g should be more than adequate I hope

I have the Skar Audio LP 1000.1d on 2 skar audio VD 10's. It's sounds great and the amp pushes the heck outta those 10's..I was a little hesitant at first but once installed it I was amazed.. still sound great a year later..
