    Default Pa1200.1

    Hey i recently wired my 2 SR's into a 1ohm load, and plan on hooking it up to the PA1200.1. Just wondering since the PA1200.1 has four speaker inputs (+ + - -), which inputs would I wire it in ? Does it matter?

    The 4 inputs are there just to make things easier.

    Wire both voice coils from one sub to one set of inputs. One set for each sub.

    Thats what I thought...but it tells you to be cautious about any load less than 2ohm and since this is 1ohm, im not sure. The amp is definitely 1ohm stable, but just not sure whether to wire each sub to one set of inputs or wire them parallel into 1ohm and only hook the sub woofers up to one out of the two set of the inputs.

    Wire them to the two inputs.

    Its saying to be careful because at 1 ohm the amp is at near 100% output. It will be really easy to overdrive it. Keep the gain set properly and use common sense with the volume control and youll be fine.

    oo alright...so thats the 2 SR's wired at 2 ohms each and plugged in its own set of inputs, 1 set for each sub, combining in a 1ohm load.

    100% correct. The two set of inputs is just for ease of wiring multiple subs. Internally, they're all connected.
