hey iv decided to set up a system in my car.. iv picked either the pioneer ts-w3002d2 (dual 2ohm) or the ts-w3002d4 (dual 4 ohm) both 3500w peak, 1000wrms.. what im clueless about is the difference between the 2? iv done some research on google on which one would be the better choice but im still having a hard time understanding.. would getting two of the ts-w3002d4 and wiring them up at 1ohm to a SOUNDSTREAM TARANTULA TX1.2000D ( Soundstream TX1-2000D review - Tarantula Car Amplifiers ) be the best way to go or is there a better way with the ts-w3002d2?
The only difference is the voice coils. One has dual 4 ohm and the other has dual 2 ohm which just means they can be wired to suit different amplifiers.
Two TS-W3002D4 with the voice coils and both subs wired in parallel will give you 1 ohm which will suit that amplifier perfectly.
Subs don't make power, they receive power from amplifiers and make sound. But yes, the subs are rated at 1000Wrms and the amp will be giving each sub 1000Wrms.
Yes, it is safe to wire the subs to be 1 ohm, that's what dual voice coils were designed for. The amplifier is rated to run a 1 ohm load so all is fine.

The big three?
A vr 5 litre bt1..?I think bt1s came out with different alternators not to sure
Uhh yeah sounds easy enough? lol il have a look when i get home
Iv checked around at a few auto electricians and audio shops and they all pretty much tell me that gettin my car ready to handle all that power will cost more than the system itselfso im gonna go for the cheaper option and get weaker subs so i wont have to change all the electrics under the hood. iv decided to go with 2 pioneer ts-w309d4's (dvc 4ohm 1400w peak, 400w rms).. I was just wondering of anybody could suggest a good amp to get the most power out of these subs?
That info is bad, you can run more power your electrical system is fine, worst case you will have to spend $30 on cables and lugs from jaycar.
My VY Berlina Build Thread - Mainly Stereo
I was told that running 2000w rms would mean id need a more powerful alternator,bigger or possibly even an extra battery ?
They're wrong, it's not required. Auto electricians know #### all about car stereos, I'm constantly repairing head units that they blow up because they're living in the past and think they know better than the wiring instructions.
Your 2000Wrms amplifier when playing music will only ever draw 2000Wrms for milliseconds at a time if you're running at full volume. What happens in this case since the alternator can't supply that power, the voltage drops until it hits the level of the battery and then the battery supplies the power. This will be the headlight dimming that you will get, it is annoying but it's not a major problem and definitely doesn't mean you need a larger alternator.
