Dual voice coil hook up
You have to determine the impedance by hooking the coils is series in parallel and series and read the connections with a multimeter.

It looks like you're new here. Conversely, if the amp cannot drive a 2-ohm load, you have to connect the driver in series only.

You cannot run the driver with only one coil without probable damage to the driver. The driver can be either dual 4-ohm or dual 2-ohm drivers.

If they are 4ohm then you can run parallel and get a 2ohm total load or run series and get an 8ohm load. If they are 2ohm then in parallel they would be 1ohm and in dual voice coil hook up 4ohm.
I have heard mixed things about running just one coil, but my understanding is you can use just one without hurting the speaker. Contact Account Shopping Cart.
You can also run each coil off a separate channel using a 2 channel amp. March edited March If your amplifier is capable of driving a 2-ohm load, you would run a dual 4-ohm in parallel or the dual 2-ohm in series.
I always the wire the subs to lowest impedance that is SAFE for the amplifier.

I have a Lanzar 12" watt, Unsure of the model due to someone scraping the sticker off the magnet, but it has dual voice coils I've always seen people just "Jump" From one voice coil input to the other VIA speaker wire, is there a more effective way to hook this sub, or any dual voice coil sub up for that matter, to produce better sound?
It all depends on what the coils impedance is. Dont guess the amp is good on 2 ohms check it out.
