I haven't even bought the driver. Nor the amp. Nor an enclosure... or anything, really!

I've just been browsing all these great DIY threads (awesome job @bluer101 , btw!) and decided to play around with it.

Yippee-ki-yay...

What's the correct wiring for two SI18 d2's and the 6000dsp? I know it's on here somewhere but I can't find it. Thanks!

you will see how to wire your subs as well as the speakon connectors. You can also verify by going to the Parts Express web site as well as the Beheringer web site the amp can only run at either a 4 or 8 ohm load. Now of course you could buy 2 more D2's then you would be set.
I guess I'll have to look into it a little more. I thought the 6000dsp worked with two d2's?

Years ago when I sold car stereo you wanted to run your subs at 2 ohms for max. power I have since discovered ( the hard way of course ) home audio is different.

Home audio is not different than car audio in that aspect. It all depends on what the amp is rated for at what ohm stable. Then that dictates the speaker ohms and wiring possibilities.

That is true but I have been told as well have read that when running an amp at a 2 ohm load will put a lot of stress on the amp. I will also say before I went nuts with my system I had two SI HT18 D4's had them wired in parallel off of the nu3000dsp and never had any issues. My only complaint and its just mine it just seemed the build quality of the amp was cheap and I wanted something better. Currently I have two HST18D1's wired in series being pushed by a Crest PL7.5 knock on wood no issues if I had to do it over I would have rather gone with the D2's then I would not be driving the amp but so hard. So yes if the amp can handle it great but for how long I do not know I have read pro's and con's for and against so anyway just my thought.

Hey guys, I pm'd a memberr here that's been helping me with my martysubs and this is what he said about running two d2's with the 6000dsp....thought it might be helpful for anyone seeing this thread down the road.

"You'll want to wire the voice coils of the sub in series for a 4 ohm load. Then you'll wire up your speakon cables positive to +1 and negative to -1. Each sub will be on its own channel so you'll want to set the limiter to ~1100w on each channel. Let me know if you have any other questions."

Sorry my mistake I was under the impression they were single voice coil yes you are right you wire the subs in series and you will have one on each channel no problem. I forgot the HT18D4 were also dual voice coil. Once your done it should be pretty intense.

This is my first attempt and building speaker/subs so I appreciate all the help. I can't wait to try them out, they're built, just need to decide on a finishing route and get that done.

lots of people have many different ways of finishing their subs, I looked at Duratex but then I decided on going with Restore 4X at Home Depot. I first tried Restore 10X did not like it at all the 4X does a decent job its approx. 32.00 a gallon. I have also used a black semigloss stain and then added a few coats of polyurethane. Some of the subs people have posted images of that used veneer look incredible. I decided to go with something I can handle and for what its worth I am happy with it.
