Subwoofer Wiring Question
Hello all, I recently bought a 12" 4 ohm Diamond M6 subwoofer (Dual Voice Coil). I have a PPI A600.2 amplifier, and know that it can handle 150x2 watts @ 4 ohms, 300x2 @ 2 ohms, and 600x1 @ 4 ohms bridged. Now, I want to bridge my amplifier so that i can get the 600 watts, however, I don't know how I should do this because I know that it is impossible to wire a 4 ohm DVC sub with an impedance of 4 ohms. I know how to wire the sub so that it will have an overall impedance of 2 ohms, but am not sure if my amp could handle it. If someone will please advise me on what I should do it would be greatly appreciated.

With a dual 4 ohm sub you can only have a 2 ohm impedance when wired in parallel and 8 ohm in series. Looks like you stuck, you needed a dual 2 ohm sub to get the most out of your amp. You could just wire it up using one channel and get 300 watts at 2 ohms. You could also try to send 150 watts to each voice coil at 4 ohms but that might be tricky bc is everything on the amp is not equal you could blow the sub.
