I'm building a couple Dayton 18" HO sub enclosures, one driver each, and I would like to wire them in parallel to one channel of an amp. The goal is to have a 2 ohm load on one side of the amp with two separate subs and then the same on the other side of the amp for a couple subs in a different room.
My question is regarding the connector that I should use for the IPR2 5000 amp. It appears that the amp will take either of these connectors for the speaker outputs:
It also appears that each of those connectors takes a max 12AWG wire, but my plan (which might not be the right plan) is to wire two 14AWG wires per terminal (two wires in +1 and two wires in -1 on channel A and two to +2 and -2 on channel B).
1. Will these connectors take two 14AWG wires in one terminal (two wires in +1 and two in -1)?
2. Is there a better way to go about this?
My parallel wiring plan, just confirm it is correct, is as follows:
Would this wiring scheme work or so I need to do something else that does not require fitting two 14AWG wires in one terminal?
3. And I could get an RCA to XLR for the signal in on the amp from my 3312ci receiver, correct? I guess this depends on whether or not I'm using a minidsp or anything else in the chain.
Thanks in advance! - Hugh
