Default 3 Sub Impedance Question

Okay, so when you wire three subs together, there are always weird impedance numbers. It's never a solid one or two ohm. It's always some strange decimal.

Example:


So I was wondering, what if you wired, say, two dual 1's together for a 1 ohm load, then wired a dual 2 to a one ohm load and plugged them all into the amp, would the third sub be in phase or all out of wack?

I just want to know if this will work out, because then you have all three subs together on a solid 2 ohm load.

Well, nothing I suppose. I am looking for a 2 ohm load though.

It will never be a solid 1ohm, or 2ohm. Ha.

Even if you're wired at 1ohm, 2ohm, 4ohm, 8ohm or whatever. It's constantly changing. I don't get why 1.33ohm bothers you?

I was saying theory. I want to know it will work before I buy them. For the instance I am asking: 2x 1 ohm dvc and 1x 2 ohm dvc

Alright, thank you.

And just to clarify, the two dual 1's are wired together, and the dual 2 is wired by itself, then just the leads will plug into the amp. Adding the loads together will create then 2 ohm load.

When u install the wires into the amp it will change the load to 1.33 again. Just b/c u don't have the third sub hooked to the other two and have a 2ohm load when those wires touch other subs wires it will not be 2 ohm. It's just wired down in a dif location.
