Kicker CVR's and Audiobahn
hello, this guy i work with wants to buy a brand new set of 12 CVR's off me but the only amp he has is an Audiobahn 1500hct...i believe since the subs are dual 4 that the amp would put out 500 watts at 4 ohms....is this correct and will it be decent power

first off are the subs dual 4 ohm or dual 2 ohm? Dual 4 ohm means you can wire down to 1 ohm and that means that you'll be pushing 2000 watts to those subs, which is too much. But if they are dual 2 ohm then you can wire it to a 2 ohm load which would be fine with that amp.

I am confused... the subs are dual 4... can you not wire a set of dual 4 ohm voice coil subs in a series/parallel combination to where each sub is 8 ohm and then back to 4 at the amplifier? BTW...the amp is 500 watts @ 4 ohms if this helps.

yeah for sure man. Sorry for the confusion, i just didn't know if they were dual 4 or dual 2 ohm. But now looking at it, I could have figured that out because you can't create a 4 ohm load with dual 2 ohm subs. Then in my opinion, I would want more power to my subs. You are definently in a strange spot with this combination. I'm currently running 2 mtx 7500 svc to 1 jl 500/1 and it bumps and everything, but i'm somewhat dissapointed. It's not enough power for those subs. But you are going to get good clean sound with 500 watts at 4 ohms

Which is better two single coils or duals with 4ohms each?

there is no better....they will all recieve the same power at a given load

well dvc is better if you are looking at wiring options. i.e. Two 4 ohm svc subs basically can be wired into 8 ohms (why?) and 2 ohms. one sub can only be wired into 4 ohms and 3 subs into 1.34 ohms. Two 4 ohm DVC subs can be wired into 1 ohm or 4 ohms. one sub can be wired into 2ohms or 8 ohms, and 3 can be wired into 2.67 ohms. and i'm sure thats way more than you really care about. Later, Garrett

So if my amp was (MONO)400 Watts RMS X 1 Channel at 2ohms. Should I stay with the SVC 4ohms?

well it depends, what are you subs rated at (rms) and is the amp 1 ohm stable? If your subs are about 150300 watts rms and svc then yes stay with svc, but if the amp is one ohm stable and your subs are about 400 watts rms (assuming the amp will put out 800 watts X 1 rms at one ohm) go with 4 ohm dvc.

Memphis PR 250RMS, even though my amp is mono I dont think its 1ohm stable. 400 X 1Channel at 2ohms

yeah stick with it, it sounds good. The subs will be a little underpowered (about 50 watts each) but that means you can crank your gain up without worrying that you will blow your subs. TXHustla, what part of Texas you from? I'm in Tomball, just north of Houston.

Im from Dallas but I go to school in PV. Is it true a box can mess your speakers up?

maybe you can answer another post ive got....would it matter how many speakers are run off of a given channel lets say four as long as the impedance doesnt drop below operating limits....i am trying to run kappa 6.5" two ways,(kappa 6.5" three ways, kappa tweet in factory "component" location) and a set a kappa comps(if it'll work) in kicks. I belive the final load per channel was 2.66667. The amp is a kicker 550.2
