General Car Audio Discussion & QuestionsAll general car audio discussion goes here. Need help installing speakers, headunits, amps or electrical? Having problems with equipment? Have questions about a product, post here.
Ok need some people with lots of knowledge or experience on this. Found some nice 6 layer coils that will fit with my MTX9500 motors well. Only thing is, each coil has 2 different impedances, 2 ohm one side, 1 ohm the other. So who in here knows if I can wire these parallel or what weird stuff has to go on with coils like this?
you wouldn't need to wire both as parallel or both in series. if ran individual to two different sources, they wouldn't be equal due to the impedance difference. the 6 layer is often done to gain a specific OD on the coil
My only concern is you will have more current going through the lower impedance coil if you run each driver in parallel. I personally would be leery of sending additional heat into the what I'm going to assume is the 2 layer coil. maybe there will be no issues with heat dissipation...Ideally you would run an individual driver's coils in series and then run both drivers in parallel to one another, but that only gets you a final ohm load of 1.5.
