i have two subwoofers at 4 ohm each
i have a mono amplifier
if i run these two subwoofers at 2ohm to the amp will their power handling increase or decrease power handling rms i mean
say they are rated at 200 watts rms each and i run them in a parellel would i be able to feed them 400 watss rms or would they power be lowered sorry if im unclear try to answer as best as possible please !!!!:)

the lower your ohms , less resistance, the more power is traveled. Their power handling will not increase they can only handle what is specified (to an extent) but the power delivered to them would be more at 2ohms than at 4ohms

maybe this answers it :cool:
Series Wiring - For speakers in series you add the impedances of the speakers together. To determine the wattage you add the wattage of the speakers together.

If you were using (2) 8 ohm speakers you'd have a 16 ohm cabinet. If you were using (2) 200 watt speakers you'd have 400 watts of power handling.

so if i wire my two 15 inch 4 ohms a piece 700 watts max 350 wats rms subs together would they handle 700 watts rms and 14oo watts max?
