Just wondering if this seems plausable or if i should scratch out and drop one Sub.

Currently i have:

3 x DIAMOND CAR AUDIO D610D2 SPEAKER 10" SUBs

Sub specs are:
Impedance: Dual 2 Ohm
RMS Power Handling: 500 Watts
Peak Power Handling: 1000 Watts

1x Rockford Fosgate T10001bd 1000 Watt Class-bd Amplifier

Amp specs are:
* 1000 Watt RMS Class BD Amplifier
* RMS Power Ratings:
o 500 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms
o 750 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms
o 1,000 watts RMS x 1 at 1 ohm

Im wondering if i could use this set up as to i currently built a box to house all 3 Subs. im wondering if my amp has enough power to put out to the Subs with out causing any damage.

Currently i havent seen a way to wire them to have the same power going to all 3 Subs. one would have to be at 2 ohm and two would be at 1 ohm. Or so it looks.

If this doesnt look like it will work i can alway just get another amp and hook one sub up seperatly or just dirtch one all together.. But figured i would see if there is a way to make this work.. Blah! haha Thanks for your time and any comments.

This is my Box i made: (first time with Fiberglass)



Thank again!

Try running them all in series. They wont be playing to their full potential, but with an amp that size and because there are three subwoofers, you should get some decent bass.

You'll mess up your amp if you run it either way you have it shown there. Your only option is to run one set of wires from the amp to the middle sub, and then "jumper" wire running to the other two. I really don't know what ohm that will put you at, but you don't want the amp trying to do what you have drawn out.

Thanks for the great info guys!

I apprciate the feedback! I didnt think the examples i posted would work but thought i might throw them out there and see.

Ill take Escort94GT advise and run them in series.. actually a easier way to route the wires than my brainstorming :p

Yea i spent about $800 when i bought the amp like 4 years ago.. and only ran it with 2 subs. It for sure has the power so i figured it would run the 3.

Running them in series is basically what I said too, it's definitely going to be the safest.

Yea i know he just said it first :(

Now should i bridge them?

all 3 subs off one set of terminals?

or

all 3 subs off one + and then the - from the second terminal?

(if that doesnt make sence im good with paint :) )

Run the amp bridged. Run the wires off the amp to the middle sub. Then run one set of wires from the middle sub, to the left sub, and the same with the right sub, feed them off the middle sub.

wire each sub at 4 ohms. one thing you guys are failing to notice is his amp is a mono amp. this will run your amp at 1ohm. increasing teh ohm load doesn't increase your power handling. so 500 is 500. but since you will be at 1 ohm on each in the end your maximum power handling across the board will be 1500. your amp is a 1000. but that fosgate probly births out at around 1200-1300. so your set!

don't run middle to out. you will not have enough speaker connection point. if you run the proper wire your subs will not be able to handle 3 wires twisted together in the push down connections.

if you give me your email i can send you a picture of te proper wiring diaghram.
