2 ch Amp & DVC

Discussion in 'OT Technology' started by Minitrucker88, Jan 11, 2004.

  1. is it possible to hook up each channel to each voice coil, rather than running the voice coils parallel and then bridging the amp?

    example: 400 x 2 @ 4 ohm amp, and a 4 ohm DVC sub. 400w to each voice coil.

    the advantage that I see here is that you could use an amp that would otherwise blow up if you bridged it and ran it at 2 ohms.

    Yeah, that would work fine. But I personally would wire the two voice coils in series and bridge the amplifier, you will get the same amount of power, and you won't have to worry about more than one set of speaker wire, or worry about level matching.

    if you are worried about wiring it correctly or what not you might whant to look at some of the MTX amps. they come as mono amps but actually have two channel terminals. this is intended to do exatly what you are wanting to do: hook each VC up to it's own terminal. by doing this you avaoid the pitfalls that 04 was talking about since it is still only reading as one channel
