I was just thinking and began to wonder if it were possible to use two subwoofers with different voicecoil configurations? like two subs that were the same, but one is a dual 4 and the other is a dual 2
iv done it and DONT i repeat DONT do it unless u wanna destroy a sub. first hand knowledge 4 JL w3s 3 d4s and a d6 2 d4s wired on a line and the other d4 and d6 on the other paralleled the lines which was a 2 ohm roughly sealed single chamber box 5cf. and destroyed the d4 that was paired with tha d6. so i had left was a set of w3d4s and a d6 :sad5:
you know the reason why it's a bad idea? If you have one subwoofer that's 2 ohms and one subwoofer that's 4 ohms, there is a huge problem and it goes like this:
even though your amplifier sees a final ohm load of 3 ohms, your subs won't get even power, because the 2 ohm sub has half the resistance of the 4 ohm sub, *SO* the 2 ohm sub will get double the power that the 4 ohm sub will
