  1. System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    Hi, I've been getting more into car audio lately and I am trying to do the head unit and amp in my current system. I am trying to figure out how to reasonably power all of my speakers, and I'm not sure what the practice/standard is for this situation. Right now the head unit and amp are both...

    2 x 4 ohm dvc - 200w rms 1 x 2 ohm dvc - 400w rms 800w rms amp @ 2 ohm 4 ohm dvcs wired in parallel for 2 ohm load, then together in series to create a 4 ohm load. 2 x 4 ohm in parallel with the 1 x 2 ohm. Total load of 2 ohms at amp. Power gets split 50% for 1 x 2 ohm dvc, 25% for each 4 ohm...
  3. General Car Audio Discussion
    It is perhaps a silly question, but I have always had this doubt: When a multichannel amplifier is stable, say, at 2 ohms, and for example, the specifications are these: 6 x 75W @ 4 ohms 4 x 110W + 2 x 150W @ 2 ohms Is it possible to connect 4 channels to 4 ohms, and 2 to 2 ohms? Or all...

    Hey guys. I'm completely new to subwoofers, and i don't really know how to hook up what i have bought. I have a Pioneer TS-W307D2 sub with an excalibur x300.4 amp. Now i have already been told that this is far from an optimal combination, but if it works i'm happy. I have done some research...

    Forgive me if this is an overly simple question. I've done some looking around, and I can't really find what I'm looking for. I've read a couple of articles on Ohm's Law and I'm either not taking enough time to understand them, or they were rather poorly written. I've searched on here, but...
  6. System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    Hi, I have acquired a 300/4v2 amp after purchasing some Polk MM6501 component speakers. I intend to use the amp in a stereo/bridged configuration to drive a sub as well. Unfortunately I didn't know about how RIPS works before I got this gear. According to the manual, for max power for the...
  7. Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    Hi guys - first time posting on this forum, but I have been reading here for a while! I recently installed the Focal polyglass 165vb component set in my car. I'm very happy with the woofers, but the tweeters are often too bright (probably because of location, but I don't want to cut or glue...
