How to wire a dual voice coil subwoofer in parallel?

In order to wire a dual voice coil subwoofer in parallel, you need a minimum of four wires going to the speaker terminals. The additional power from your amplifier is divided by the total number of speakers in parallel.

What is a voice coil on a subwoofer?

Voice coil: tightly wound small gauge wire of a large length (this is suspended inside a gap in the magnet) Single voice coil subwoofers have only one speaker voice coil winding while dual voice coil models have a 2nd voice coil of the same Ohm rating (impedance) added in the bobbin.

What is a dual-voice-coil subwoofer?

On a dual-voice-coil sub, there are two pieces of wire and two sets of connections. The coils can be wired in series, in parallel or individually to power the subwoofer.

What is the difference between single voice coil and dual voice coil?

Single voice coil subwoofers have only one speaker voice coil winding while dual voice coil models have a 2nd voice coil of the same Ohm rating (impedance) added in the bobbin. A 2nd pair of wire leads and speaker wire terminals are added, too.

How do you wire a dual voice coil subwoofer in series?

Need to wire a dual voice coil subwoofer in series? First, connect the positive lead from Voice Coil 1 to the positive speaker output from your amplifier. Next, connect the negative lead from Voice Coil 1 to the positive lead on Voice Coil 2. Finally, connect the negative lead from Voice Coil 2 to the negative output of the amplifier.

Can you connect two subwoofers in parallel?

Two Dual Voice Coil Speakers in Parallel / Parallel Connecting the voice coils of each driver in parallel (+ to +, - to -) and the drivers themselves in parallel (+ to +, etc.) will result in the following impedances: Dual–8 Ohm Subwoofers: 2 Ohms Dual-6 Ohm Subwoofers: 1.5 Ohms

Are dual voice coil speakers any good?

Dual voice coil speakers have a unique benefit here as you could use a dual 4 ohm subwoofer for both car or home use: Wired in series for 8 ohms for home stereo use Using a single 4 ohm or parallelled to 2 ohms for car stereo amp use

What is the difference between single voice and dual voice subwoofers?

One distinction between the two is that dual voice coils have double the winding length of single voice coils, which means greater motor force and power handling. Single voice coil subwoofers have 1 set of leads, which limits wiring options. Dual Voice Coil subwoofers have two sets of leads.

What is the difference between single voice coil and dual voice coil subwoofers?

As mentioned before, the difference between the single voice coil (SVC) and the dual voice coil (DVC) is minimal and not performance-based. First, the dual voice coil subwoofers give you more wiring options than the single voice coil subs.

What are dual voice coil (DVC) speakers?

The purpose of dual voice coil (DVC) speakers is they allow for more flexibility for how the speaker is wired into the system depending on the resistance required. The dual coils within these speakers allow them to be wired as a single speaker with both stereo channels running through it, allowing one speaker to act as a stereo speaker.

How does a voice coil work?

The third major component of the voice coil (the first two being winding and former) is the collar, which is sometimes wrapped around the winding. The voice coil accepts the amplifier current, which in turn produces a magnetic field. This magnetic field reacts with the magnetic field of the permanent magnet attached to the speaker’s frame.

Is a bigger voice coil better for speakers?

Using a speaker with a bigger voice coil will provide a better frequency response from the audio system, and you will more clearly hear all the frequencies present in the music, but it does draw more power from the amplifier. A bigger voice coil does produce more power, which also means that it produces more heat.
