Ok i am looking at three 15" speakers each speaker has dual 6ohm voice coils. How would i wire them to get a 2ohm load?

i would wire them into four ohms if i were you
Thanks. Will do.

why? if he has a mono amp then 4 ohms wont do shit for him, am i right? now if he has a 2 channel amp then 4 ohms would be perfect....... but yeah like i said if he got a mono amp he just gonna be loosing power from the amp

Connecting the two voice coils of each driver in series (+ to -) and the drivers themselves in parallel (+ to +, etc.) will give you a 4Ohm load.

Connecting the two voice coils of each driver in parallel (+ to +, - to -) and the drivers themselves in parallel will give you a 1ohm load ;)

if they are 6 ohm you can only wire them into ohm that are divisible by 3 as in 3 ohm 1.33 ohm .33 ohm etc not 4ohm or 2 ohm if that made sense
i think what your trying to say is right but you did it wrong think of it this way if you have a dual 6 ohm sub in parrallel then its 3 right? divide that by 3 and its 1.... then in series the sub would be 12 divide that by three you get 4.......

yea but it wont go into 4 ohm even if you wire it to 12

:uh: :twak:

of course you can wire it into 4 ohms, that's one of the advantages of having three dual 6 ohm subs, to wire it into a standard 4 ohm load. or even a 1 ohm load. instead of all this 2.2452523434 ohms.....nonsense.

I can say that the only reason that the 6 ohm speaker was brought out was it's ability to be divided into 4 ohms. You would have to wire a Series/parellel configuration to achieve it, but it is possible. But if he does run that amp at 4 ohms, and it is a mono amp. Then it better be rated to give all it's power into a 4 ohm load, otherwise you will be wasted the power that is available.

im problay twice as smart as you because i know you cant get 4 ohms out of 6 :biggrin:

I guess you're smarter than JL Audio too, huh??

3 DVC drivers with Voice Coils in Series / Parallel
Connecting the two voice coils of each driver in series (+ to -) and the drivers themselves in parallel (+ to +, etc.) will result in the following impedances:
Dual-6 Ohm Subwoofers: 4 Ohms
Dual-4 Ohm Subwoofers: 2.67 Ohms
Dual-2 Ohm Subwoofers: 1.33 Ohms

Did you notice something while being so smart?

The third sub only has one coil hooked up. This means that the 3rd sub will only be useing one coil, not both like the other 2 subs.

This means the third sub will be pushing half as hard as the other 2 subs. Smart guy. :biggrin:

What are you talking about. The third sub is wired in Series. As it was said you must wire in a Parellel/Series wiring configuration. When you do this, it will give you a 4 ohm load.
