thanks for the power/spl/db info. i kinda knew that, but now its clear.

when i was talking percentage, i was referring to max excursion. since thats the defining point of the music i play. if it had 10mm xmax, and i run it at approximately 9mm, thats the 90% im referring to. but yes. DB is probably the better way to measure, i just havent ever worked with those measurements ever before. so got no reference to it.


on a different note, im doing a birthday gig on saturday, in a narrow shed (double bricked on both sides) its approximately 5-6m across. would you stack subs together or upright in this case?

do ya think stood up like this?

Hi maxo,

Usually 3 drivers in parallel give around 2 Ohm. 4 drivers will end around 1.5 Ohm and most amps are not build for that load.

Djim, i was always taught that it halves?

2x 8R in parallel, = 4R and then two 4R pairs will equal 2R???

But it's not 8R in the first place, it's more like 6R. So two in parallel are 3R and four in parallel are 1.5 Ohms... pretty low load.
