    Default Quick question on DVC sub hookup

    We're installing one of the MOMO 10" subs that is dual voice coil. The amp we are using is a MTX Thunderbird 8302.

    I've used this amp bridged before to drive one momo 12", not DVC.

    What's the best way to hook up this sub to this amp? It's a 2 channel amp, should I run one channel to each voice coil, or is there a way I can still bridge it and hook it up?

    Here's a link to specs, halfway down the page

    Thanks guys...

    i dont see a link...but anyway, yes there is. Im guessing its a dual 2 ohm sub?
    If it is, use this picture:

    If the sub is dual 4 ohm, then you might be able to hook up one coil with each channel but youll need to use an o-scope to adjust the gains.

    You cant bridge it.

    That is a dual 4 ohm voice coil sub which means you can either get a 2 ohm mono or 8 ohm mono load. Your amp wont handle a 2 ohm load and a 8 ohm load is pointless.

    Your best shot is to hook up one channel to on voice coil.

    Youll need an o-scope to set the gains? Nah. Unless that amp has L/R independant gains, you can set it normally.
