no, nothing inherently better with a DVC sub. They do offer two wiring options, compared to just one option on an SVC. A dual 4 ohm sub can be wired as 2 or 8 ohms, for better amp flexability.domm said:the dual is usually better and can handle a little more power (i believe)
Yeah, I agree. As for diferent wiring comparisons, it goes like this: compared to wiring a single VC, when you wire them parallel, 1/2QES, 1/2R, +6dB/2.83V/1m, 1/2LVC. series wired, 1/2QES, 2*R, no gain in dB, 2*LVC.TL said:Poison, that depends on a few things..
you're right, P=E2/R, Running the sub in parallel will cut the impedance by 3/4.. meaning 4x the power. BUT it all depends on the amplifier, whether it can take the lower impedance load, and whether it is capable of the 4x power jump at the lower load..
I thought car audio amplifiers were increasingly becoming more popular to 2ohm stable operation?TL said:The problem is, for a single sub setup, the vast majority of DVC subs are dual 4 ohm, and the vast majority of 2 channel class A/B amps can't handle a 2 ohm load. Also, the majority of those amps don't double power going from 8 ohms bridged to 4 ohms bridged. Most manage only 1.5x the gain..
