 3 ohm woofers?

Does anyone know how to wire a 3 ohm woofer? Im not sure if a stable 2 ohm amp can break down into 1.5 ohms(bridged} or not? Id perfer to have a mono amp. Please help.

What amp are you running? A 2 ohm stable amp can run at 1.5 ohms but may become hot and cause it to go into protection mode. Your better amps are more efficient (turning the power it gets into watts and less into heat). So basically if your amp can keep from overheating then you shouldnt have a problem. Make sure amp has space to disperse the heat it generates. A little something I do when I run my amp high or at a lower impedence is I turn my ported box toward my amp so that the air pumping out of the enclosure will help circulate the air around the amp.
