I could not find a good diagram on how to setup 12 = 6 on each channel
Or 8 = 4 on each channel.

Driver is a 4ohm single voice coil.
Amp can only do 4 or 8 ohms.

Thanks.

Well if it can do 4 or 8 ohm it can do 6 ohm

So for 6 to a channel wire 3 and 3 in series and then parallel the two series of three. That will give you 6 ohms.

For the 8 then go two banks of four in series and then parallel those. That will get you to 8 ohms.

This all sounds like a crazy Frankenstein plan though. Can't imagine why you need that many subs.

INUKE 6000.

Home audio.
Well you know is like asking why two subs.
If you can fit 12 why not :).
But most likely 8 and later on add another 4.

Thanks TSL that sound like the only way to go.

Well those are car drivers and not sub drivers in the home audio sense.

They are totally unsuitable for home use. One decent sub would best all those no matter how many you use.

Here is the technical data.

The FS is 28 Hz and they are fairly high Q. They are classic car thumper/boomers.

Look at the FRs sealed, vented and band pass out of car responses. Note the peaked response at 60 Hz vented or sealed. The response falls rapidly after the peak. The band pass box is better, but the frequency is still falling off well above sub range. Sealed they are 18 db down at 30 Hz, 7 db down vented at 30 Hz and 15 db down with the band pass cabinet. If you look at the in car responses, you can see that this type of driver works and fits well for the type of bass you get in a typical car environment from the small cabin gain. That is why sub and home drivers are very different animals.

That will be a terrible home sub system. You are wasting time, effort and money going down that rabbit hole.

Ah, the "replacement" for the Infinity 1260. Was just reading the avs thread on them.

Going sealed? What size box?

Seems quite a few are quite happy with these. Hard to beat the price.

lol,
Well I will give it a try and see how it turns out.
Dual 12” 1.22cf per side boxes.

I hope multiples would help a little bit.
With a even bass response.

I am not a Behringer iNuke fan, too much BS..
6Kw for $399 o_O
A couple of months ago, we sold/installed a pro-audio system in downtown LA near Staples Center that replaced a rack of iNuke amplifiers. The club had multiple failures and requested for a reliable system, we designed an updated the system using QSC amplifiers. The system cost was 4x higher but in a pro-audio system failures are not acceptable as system downtime means no revenue....
IMHO...
iNuke tries to pass off their products as pro-audio, unfortunately their reliability is mixed... Something 1 cannot afford in a pro-audio application. A couple of weeks ago, we sold off some of the working iNuke 6000 amplifiers on e-bagger for $105 each, the defective ones ended up in the dumpster.

Just my $0.02... ;)

I'm not particularly a fan, when I originally looked into such too many complaints about reliability and construction issues for my taste. They are cheap and appealing and probably better than Pyle :) I can't imagine dragging something like a Behringer around on tour in any case.
