Single Voice coil sub or Dual Voice coil sub ?

A single voice coil sub likely NO the two amps will fry each others outputs

A dual voice coil sub and the Same amps CAN be done but need to be set near perfect to be effective as the gains must match to keep things balanced

You should NEVER attach two amp outputs together , EVER , The voltages will feed back and blow the outputs in a few seconds...

Certain competition amps can be daisy chained meaning the output of one feeds the input of the next but thats very few amps that can do that ...

If you have multiple subs and the amps can run them singly then thats the best route

Yeah, unless your model amplifier can be strapped and those that can be strapped usually have master and slave controls on them.

yes its paint.. shh!

This is how a friend has his 18 woofer hooked up.

runs all day everyday... no issue. its running 1 ohm.. if it was on one massive amp, it be .5 ohm.


his 2 amps are 2000 watts RMS a piece (at 12V). his sub takes 1500/6000 (RMS/Peak)



it works all day everyday. hit a 147.x at a show just to see what it would hit. not bad for a single 18.
