you gain 6db by doubling power and doubling cone area. Hes keeping power the same and doubling cone area
I thought long and hard before I posted my response. He is not going to see a 4 ohm load to each channel. It's going to be an 8 ohm load.
So double the cone area and half
+3db with the same power
+6db with double the power

Am I really keeping the same power?? I thought going the 8ohm route id go down to 2350watts per channel, then that's getting split to 2 LMS's. How does power vs. efficiency work out here??
Shaboom.. That's the logic I'm talking about.

Seems like the same output would obviously more effortless (for the subs anyway) with that much more displacement. Reducing the ohm load should technically be less stress on the amp, correct?
