I have an old 325 watt kenwood 694s amp i believe. Michael Hi Michael, It seems you have a good handle on how to connect your speakers — all good. The larger pipe above would represent a 2 Ohm load whereas the smaller pipe would be 4 Ohm. Four days after installation the subs blew up. All of this boils down to the fact that the power amplifier will see a total equivalent-load impedance Zt of 4 ohms at 500 Hz. Returning once again to our subwoofer saga, say youve grown tired of your eight subs and now want to design a system that focuses on sound quality — not quantity. Working with Zab, substitute 100 for Po, 4 for Zt, and 8 for Zab.
One way to lower resistance is to use thicker wire. I don't have any gains turned up or anything i just would like to be able to adjust it and turn the volume up higher. They differ electronically in the way an amplifier will react to being connected to them. Capacitors work just the opposite. Usually, it is small but sometimes it can be greater than the resistance of the speaker itself. Wired together to a mono 1-channel amp they can form a , a , or a 16-ohm load.
In Closing… I hope this has helped you understand how-to, and how-not-to, wire four or more pairs of HiFi speakers around your house. We reserve the right but are not obligated to review all submissions and edit or remove any image s in any manner which we deem necessary. The larger pipe represents a lower Ohm load than the smaller pipe. This allows the Amplifier to run cooler and more efficiently. Adding additional Speakers is as easy, however, adding Speakers in Parallel causes the overall resistance of the circuit to drop, as resistance drops, the current must increase according to Ohms Law.
First you would look at potential voltage which is represented as a body of water in the diagram. I was going to wire them 3 down to 1ohm so i can get the most power from the amp and the most out of the subs. Then wire the two subs together and to the amp channel. If you want a question answered about a system, you must identify the gear by brand names and model numbers. If you need to wire more than four speakers, particularly in a commercial installation, see the article on.
My question is, i am now ready to wire them both at a 2 ohm load which im sure i will need to upgrade amplifier. I recommend getting separate amps for your different model subs. If you had wired yours with the subs and coils all in parallel, then the amp would have seen a 0. Or does it supply each with 500w? Remember: 4 Ohm mono is equivalent to 2 Ohm stereo. If reversing the leads makes the system sound louder, then you know you have fixed the problem. My question is can it be possible to over power the Type R? In most cases, load impedance should be held to a minimum of 2 ohms — provided the amplifier can handle impedances that low. Is this correct and how much power do you think i will have at 1.
The same applies the other way around. Four speakers wired in parallel This diagram shows how to wire four speakers in parallel. I just bought a 1 ohm stable amp 3000 watt planet audio. Thank you for the help I greatly appriciate it. Also, keep the fields out of phase with each other by rotating the inductors 90 degrees.
And, if I unbridge the amp and directly connect a channel to each speaker with the second voice coil bridged as shown in the diagram, what is my final impedance? When you know how many speakers youre going to use and the impedance driving capability of your amplifier, youll be able to select a wiring scheme that will deliver the best sonic and electrical results. Any idea's about that or where you went to find out or how you know. If this page has helped you, or perhaps even saved you paying for a technician, please consider a donation to Geoff to encourage him and appease his wife for the many hours he puts into this website. The basic components of crossovers are inductors and capacitors. The easiest way to solve this problem is with a second amplifier. Plus, it gives you the option of just replacing the amp with a larger one in the future if you want more bass. Thank you for your time.
In other words, how much power will the amp deliver into each channel given the equivalent-load impedance youve created? This would be a typical installation and can be found in many installs. I'm having trouble with wiring the subs and connecting it to the amp. Your amp will react to a 1. The two single 4 Ohm subs are easy to wire and you can see that in the diagram above. So how do we do that? This is logical as the signal is being shared by more than just the one speaker. Therefore you could have two speakers on each side of the amplifier right and left.
