Subwoofer Wiring Diagrams.

This is an updated page, if you need a diagram that isnt listed, please pm me and i will make one and post it here.

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.

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

yes, as do rockford and a few other places.

However, i didnt want to just link those because A. copyright, and B. They dont have all of them. This way any combo is possable.

Statistically, very few people that are far enough into the game as to own a QVC sub need wiring diagrams.

However, i will draw QVC, and already have drawn a few on request, so if you need any, feel free to request them. Will send to the person requesting within a day.
They will be added to the list eventually, but not a big priority.

And yes, i have been slacking, but more diagrams will be posted soon.

Wiring for fronts, sub, and amp

I have a 3 channel Kicker KX-550.3

Can I wire a DVC 4 Ohm sub to 2 Ohms (for more power) and then wire my two front speakers at 4 ohms?

Or does all the wiring have to be at 4 Ohms?

I'm a newbie to all of this.

Need 2 4ohm SVC 8's to wire up to 4 ohms? Can it be done?

What about 1 4 ohm SVC 8 wired up to 2 ohms?

You can wire any resistance to the amp as long as it doesn't go below the amp's stability. If you have a 1 ohm stereo stabled 4-channel amp, you could wire a 1 ohm, 2.34 ohm, 3.75 ohm, and a 4 ohm driver on each channel and it would be safe to do it.

So yes, you can wire a single 4 ohm load on the front 2 channels, 1 2-ohm load on 3rd channel.

The only possible resistance for 2 4-ohm drivers is 2 or 8 ohms.

On top of that, you can't change the resistance of a SVC driver on its own.

Please pick up any 2nd Semester College Physics Book in Electromagnetism and learn "resistance and capacitance". Very helpful.
