2 dvc 2ohm subs wired series/parallel = 2ohms, do I have to draw it out for you? Oh wait it already is Look on the magnet it should say what "ohm" it is. If it's DVC 4ohm you're SOL

Infinity Sub & Amp Wiring

Good day. In relation to sub wiring, I need help on wiring my sub. I have an Infinity 5761a 6-channel amp (using ch1/2 Front, 3/4 rear speakers).
Amp specs
56W x 4 channels and 107W x 2 channels, at 4 ohms & 1% THD + N.
80W x 4 channels, 150W x 2 channels at 2 ohms,14.4V supply & 1% THD+N.
148W x 2 channels, 287W x 1 channel at 4 ohms,14.4V supply & 1% THD+N.
Dynamic power: 117W (channels 1, 2, 3, 4);163W (channels 5, 6) into 2 ohms

As sub i have one infinity kappa 100.3dvc (4 ohms per coil). I have wired it as 2 ohm load (+/+ and -/- per V coil) bridged to + ch5/-ch6. Is this ok? Got a recommendation that I should wire it ch5=1 vcoil abd ch 6=1 vcoil. Which do i get a better "bump" from the sub without endangering the amp.
Thanks.
Ronald

a dual 4 ohm voice coil sub is not a good choice for that amp. the only safe way to wire it would be to run the voice coils in series to create an 8 ohm load, then bridging it. you should see about 150 watts to the sub this way, but it will be a safe load on the amp. you should consider getting a SVC 4 ohm sub, or a dual 2 ohm sub, those would be the best choice for that amp. or you could just get a 2nd one of the subs that you have.

Thanks for your input. This may sound silly, but with wiring the sub in series, am i getting less or more from the sub. How about the load on the amp? Thanlks again.

you will be putting less power to the amp when wiring the sub in series, and your amp will see an 8 ohm load bridged. its not the ideal setup for that amp, but its the only safe way to do it.

ok. i tried wiring the sub is series. only thing is i got less "bump" out my sub. how about wiring the voice coils separately per channel. it 's going to require additional wirings though. Anyway, given the situation i'm in right now, i might have to go with wiring the sub in parallel and just watch the gain i put on my amp. like you mentioned, i don't have the ideal setup right now, but it will have to do until i'll be able to get a new sub. thanks again.

wiring the voice coils to each channel would give you the same power as you have right now. when you bridge 2 channels into an 8 ohm load, it is the same as having a 4 ohm load in stereo.

Hello Duck Tape
After much tweaking with my system (and some inputs from other installers as well), i have wired my dual 4 ohm voice coil sub in series to create an 8 ohm load, then then bridging it to the amp (just as you had earlier suggested). Some tweaking with the gain and boost knobs, and i got the "bump" i wanted. Next up is to get hold of a really bassy cd and see how far it will go. I don't know if i'll be able to set off car alarms, but it'll worth a try.
Again thanks for the replies.
Ronald

If you want some really bassy stuff (wouldn't quite call it music) get some bass mechanik I got mine at BB also has useful things on the cd like sine waves pink/white noise and different things

This page is in startup phase right now, i will list more diagrams over the next few days as i have time to make them.
Chris

Single sub
Dual Voice Coil
DVC 2 ohms = 1 ohm load
DVC 2 ohms = 4 ohm load

DVC 3 ohms = 1.5 ohm load
DVC 3 ohms = 6 ohm load

DVC 4 ohms = 2 ohm load
DVC 4 ohms = 8 ohm load

DVC 6 ohms = 3 ohm load

DVC 8 ohms = 4 ohm load

Dual subs
Dual Voice Coil
2 ohms = .5 ohm load
2 ohms = 2 ohm load
2 ohms = 8 ohm load

3 ohms = .75 ohm load
3 ohms = 3 ohm load

4 ohms = 1 ohm load
4 ohms = 4 ohm load

6 ohms = 1.5 ohm load
6 ohms = 6 ohm load

8 ohms = 2 ohm load
8 ohms = 8 ohm load
are the diagrams for series wiring correct?
