If I remember correctly, when a 6 ohms mono is bridged onto an amp, it becomes 3 ohms. Right???

Thanks~

425W into 4ohm

800W into 2ohm

1100W into 1ohm

600W into 3 ohm should be fine for this amp.

thanks for the reply~ yeah, I know bridging is not necessary but the thing is I can get a cheaper amp if I bridge it u know? Am I correct in saying, if bridging is possible in an amp, it wont be anymore stressful then not running it bridged right?dark_is200 said:

Are these older W6's or the new dual 4 ohm ones?

As a reminder, the amplifier has limits and it does not cut the final impedance in 1/2 when bridged. The rule to remember is that if its say 2 ohm mono stable then it will be 1/2 that stereo stable. I.E. 2 ohms mono is 1 ohm stereo stable.

So the guy from car toys is wrong??? The 2 jl's are in series at 6 ohms. Oh also, yeah i have the old 6ohms DVC's.

sorry im a newbie and don't really know how the amp works pass it's specs. :lol:

You have dual 6 ohm voice coils, so if you series 2 coils together you have a 12 ohm load. Now if each speaker is wired this way you have 2-12 ohm speakers. Now if you go from the amp + to each speaker positive and the amps - to the speaker - you will have a 6 ohm final load. This is the mono load the amp will see. If the guy told you the amp will see a 3 ohm load he is infact incorrect.

What I would do is wire them + to + and - to - each speaker. That will mean each speaker is a 3 ohm load. Now wire one set of coils from each speaker to the amp via + to+ and - to -. The final load will be 1.5 ohms. Now get a HiFonics Brutus BX1000D. This amp will give around 750 watts at 1.5 ohms. Its a little more than needed, but JL subs are supposed to handle it. I know that Image subs would.

ZX6000 or BD1000??? I can only either run at 6 ohms or 1.5 ohms. Unless I wire two subs seperately into the amp at 3 ohms each. But the thing is, my box only gives out mono output, meaning there's only one outlet in the back. So my 2 jl's are coming out from one +/_ in the back of the box... So I can't really do 2 subs into two channels. So my only choices are 6 or 1.5 ohms. so I think my best bet is rewire them in pararell in 1.5 ohms and get the BD1000. What do you think lisunup??

Thanks~

Thats what I would recommend! Remember that subs are not a matter of mono or stereo as the human ear can only destiquish mono at those freqs.Boodies said:
