I wanna run 3 subs do i need to buy 4 ohm or 8 ohm subs????????
Single or Dual voice coil? If you get 3 single 8 ohm subs, that will give you roughly a 2.66 ohm mono load, if you run 3 4 ohms, that will give you a 1.33. So if your amp makes full power at 4 ohms, get the 8 ohms, but if it makes full power at 1 ohm, go for the 3 4 ohms.
It depends on what amp you are using. You have to find out what ohm load your amp can handle.
It also depends on how you wire them. Series = 2Xohms Parallel = .5Xohms. If you get DVC (dual voice coil) subs, you have more wiring options and can get many different resistances. What amp are you using?
