 15th September 2006, 01:36 AM #1 anglerz007   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Sep 2006 Quick subwoofer/amp power question Say you have an amp that says it outputs 300 watts at 2 ohm, and you wire 3 subwoofers to it in a 2 ohm load, does each subwoofer get 300 watts, or does each subwoofer get 100 watts? Thanks

no...does it make a difference though?

Are you not understanding me?? I was answering your previous post!! "So the amp will split the power output into 3 equal streams of power?"

I have no idea if you'll understand this, but I'll post it anyway: http://wickedcases.com/caraudio/amplifiers.html
