Re: Purpose of Dual vs Single Voice Coils?

Well, morphing from a discussion about DVC vs SVC to pro amps, I think when I have the chance to do a sub build, I will definitely be going the pro amp route vs plate amp.

Re: Purpose of Dual vs Single Voice Coils?

So in a nutshell: in a pro amp you get higher power handling and efficiency at the expense of a little more distortion, but for subwoofer use this little bit of added distortion doesn't really matter...

Re: Purpose of Dual vs Single Voice Coils?

Ok, that makes sense. I was really thinking in my mind all this time that pro amps were just a higher power handling sibling to consumer amps, but it makes total sense that a pro amp would be able to...

Re: Purpose of Dual vs Single Voice Coils?

Ok, but using my limited knowledge here, when you have a 2 ohm load, you will have a higher likelihood of overdriving the amp, right? Overheating, distortion, etc?

Re: Purpose of Dual vs Single Voice Coils?

Sorry, what I was trying to ask here was what is the typical ohm load for HT amplification. Thinking about it more, obviously there needs to be that versatility in wiring, loads, etc. Thanks

Re: Purpose of Dual vs Single Voice Coils?

So essentially it gives you the option for wiring possibilities depending on the amp. Most HT applications are 4 ohm loads though, right?

That makes a lot more sense now, pharoah. If amps weren't...

Purpose of Dual vs Single Voice Coils?

This seems like something I should intuitively know, but I am having a hard time understanding the virtues of dual voice coil drivers. Does it have to do with multiple driver setups, versatility, or...
