OK, I am running a 2 channel amp to push 3 dual 18" subs.They are wired so that Channel one drives the top 3 woofers and channel two drives the bottom three woofers. This equates to a 2.7-ish ohm load. The subs are daisy chained, out from the amp, to the 1st sub then to the 2nd sub to the 3rd sub. We use 4 conductor cabling.Is this an acceptable way to run subs? Its the way I was shown how to do it years ago.Someone told me that each sub should be "home run" to the amp.Which way is correct or does it even make a difference?The reason I ask is that we popped some woofers this past year and I am wondering if the way I am wiring the subs together may be the culprit.Thanks!
Thats what I thought, he had cited back-voltage causing problems the way I am wiring it.The odd thing is that the 2 woofers that blew were re-coned by a EV authorized re-coner and they didn't last 2 shows, the other 9 dual 18's had no issues. Just wanted to ask.Thanks.

Each woofer is getting about 600 watts give or take at full Boogie. Continuous rating is 500 watts per woofer.
Both woofers popped in the same box. I don't have a accurate answer if they were laying horizontal or placed vertical.I do think I found the culprit, when Paul O'Brien mentioned EDM, I checked back in our calendar. Turns out that sub got smoked on a DJ festival. Apparently the engineer was not watching what he was doing. I was the guy who used them on the next gig, a rock show. After pressing the previous shows engineer a bit, he fessed up.Now I just have to figure out why the re-cones are not lasting.I keep calling EV to see if they re-cone directly, they take my number but no one ever calls back.Does anyone have a reliable recommendation for a re-coner in the midwest that they have used and trust?
