Hi guys. I have an inuke 6000 that I just got and 2 elemental designs 18" 19vo.2 subs. I'm running them in an infinite baffle setup. I was trying to wire them both up to 1 channel today so that I could channel 2 for a second setup if necessary.
When running the setup, without the gain too high, I was getting the red protection light at the top of the 4 orange led indicator lights. I was getting it with only 1 orange power light lighting up. So, I have a question about how I wired the subs.
I ran a multi meter to verify that my subs were dual 4 ohm last week. It read either 4.0 or 4.1 (I don't recall of hand).
So I wired each of the subs voice coils in parallel and I crossed the speaker wire between the two. I thought that if each speaker was 2 ohm and I ran them in series, then I'd be back at 4 ohm. Am I correct here?
This is a newbie question, but can I run only one of the voice coils on each speaker so that they run at 8ohms, assuming I run 1 coil on each speaker in series? I'd still be getting more than enough power since I don't need much more than 500 watts a speaker and the amp will do 1600 at 8 ohms and 2200 at 4.
