Yeah, i know bro...i used that as my reference and still got bamboozled.

If you look in the pics, each VC has four prongs. Im not sure which of the prongs to wire...does it matter? I'll give it a go in a minute and report back.

Just a question...What way did i have it wired in the first place? Was it alright?

jdm92_accorn is very helpful jdm92_accorn is very helpful

the way you had it wired was 2ohm. connect a wire from the - on voice coil 1 to the + on voice coil 2 then connect the two remaining to the amp(+ on voice coil 1 to + on amp and - on voice coil 2 to the - on amp. make sense?

True that. I put atleast 12ga on subs.

Most amps are rated at 14.4 volts but a vehicle has a hard time keeping that voltage. I usually see around 13.6-13.8 on a stock/stockish car.


It doesn't matter which little prong you wire it to..behind the prong there is only one wire.

Parallel wiring is just as the name implies. +coil1 to +coil2 to +amp and -coil1 to -coil2 to -amp...you would be running the two signals in parallel with each other...this will take your ohm rating down.

Series is like daisy-chaining. +coil1 to -coil2..then -coil1 to -amp and +coil2 to +amp. Sometimes, to me, it doesn't sound right in theory but it is...this will take your ohm rating up.

So a 4ohm DVC sub would be 2ohm parallel mono and 8ohm series mono...or you could just use one coil and wire it at 4ohm mono. Some people don't like to use just one coil on a DVC sub but I've been doing it for years on my old-school 10" Kicker DVC CVRs and they have never skipped a beat. I've heard that you are supposed to use both coils on a DVC sub to prevent damage to the unused coil but I don't believe it. They started using DVCs to allow for more wiring flexibility.

It is safe to use one coil, but you'll get diminished performance
