Hey, the internet seems to lack information on wiring 6 subwoofers. They're DC audio m3's, d2. So dual 2 ohms and I have 6 of them. What would be the ohm rating? Also, would the RMS change as the ohm rating changes? 300 RMS each at 2 ohms. Sorry for any possible ignorance, I'm pretty new to all this

Wiring too what?
1 ohm capable amp, 0.5 ohm or 2 ohm capable amp?

in parallel it is 1/12th ohm.
in series it would be 24 ohms.

The DVC in series per stub, and then all subs in parallel is 4/6th ohm.

or…
Each “coil pair set” in parallel - gives1 ohm per sub.
Then three subs in series, is 3 ohms.
then those two sets of 3, in parallel, gives us 1.5 ohms.

Option 1 (series/parallel) = 0.67 ohm load
Voice coils wired in series, speakers wired in parallel.

Option 2 (parallel/series) = 1.5 ohm load
Voice coils wired in parallel, speakers wired in series

Option 3 (series) = 6 ohm load
Voice coils wired in series

Are you sure?
Option 1: i get the same number

Option 2:
I think 2 ohm coils in become 1 ohm in parallel. Then the 6 of them in series become 6 ohms?

Option 3: isn’t DVCs in series 4 ohms, and then 6x 4 = 24?

You should probably play it safe and run at 1.5 ohm as I drew above.
That looks like the picture of my wording in post #2… so it makes sense to me.

You are correct, I see my error in option 2. I was thinking like lithium drew it up, but it’s late and I should be asleep.
