Besides, what hits harder 2ohm or 4ohm?

A subwoofer with a lower electrical resistance produces a louder sound than one with a high electrical resistance, which means that **2ohm** subwoofers are louder than **4ohm** ones. Although louder, **2 ohm** subwoofers are also more likely to produce a poorer quality of sound due to its' power consumption.

Additionally, is it better to wire subs in series or parallel?

When speakers or voice coils are wired in **series**, you add their impedances **together** to find their total impedance. Two 4-ohm speakers wired in **series** have a total impedance of 8 ohms. When speakers or coils are wired in **parallel**, however, the formula for their total impedance is more complicated.

Is 1 ohm bad for an amp?

if an **amp** is designed to be **1 ohm** stable, then its **ok**. running an **amp** not designed to do it can/will end up **bad**. there are some **amps** that can do . 5 **ohm**, and a very few that can do .

Can a 2 ohm amp run a 1 ohm sub?

Your **1 ohm sub will** draw twice as much current as your **2 ohm amp can** deliver, which **will** kill it. Is it a dual voice coil **sub**? You **can** wire it for higher impedances if it is. if you only **run one sub** coil the **sub will** only have half of its power handling.

If **you** take **4 ohm speaker** and **wire** it in parallel with a **4 ohm** resistor **you WILL** get **2 ohms** of total resistance. However, your **speaker will** still get the same amount of power and all the additional power created by dropping the **ohm** load **will** go to the resistor and be turned to heat.

Basically, a **2 ohm** subwoofer demands less power from the amp and tends to deliver louder bass. On the contrary, a **4 ohm** subwoofer will demand more power from the amp and deliver less loud but higher quality bass. Thus, make your choice depending on the kind of bass you want.

When you **bridge** an **amp** the **ohm** rating **does** not change. You can only change the **ohms** by wiring speakers differently(series or parallel). When you **bridge** an **amp** it typically won't be 2ohms stable, most are only 4ohms stable when **bridged**.

Most **mono amplifiers** are designed to **run** at 2 ohms; some are even 1-ohm stable. A: The benefits of hooking up **two subs** to a **mono amplifier** are the same as hooking up any other number of **subs** to a **mono amp**: **you can** push the **subs** with more power at lower impedances.

RMS, and RMS only with anything car audio. secondly, **the amp** can be a little under, but you will suffer as far as sound quality goes. 400 watts RMS per sub, that'd 800, so 150% (optimal) **would** be 1200 watts. 1200 watts (RMS) is what you want in an **amp**, look for that.

At **1**-**ohm**, this **amp** will be capable of powering **1**-channel at a constant 750-watts over one channel, 550-watts at 2-**ohm** over one channel, or 400-watts at 4-**ohm** over one channel. This means you'll be able to completely optimize your individual sound system, depending on how you want it to be set up.

If you want it to **sound** best AND you want the system to last longer, you want to run a sub at **4 ohm**. The ONLY reason to run a **1 ohm** load is when you simply can't afford an amplifier that will give necessary power at a **4 ohm** load.
