 ihave 2 12w3v2's dual 2 ohm being powered by a 500/1. they are wired to 2 ohm. i want to put another w3 on the amp. if wire them to produce a 1.3 ohm loadwould that be hard on the amp. or should i wire them in series at a 3 ohm load. would the amp produce a little more power at a 1.3 ohm load?

The JL amp produces the same *power* at any ohm from 1.5 to 4.

so does that mean it is stable between 1.5-4ohm? can it go lower?

No you shouldnt go lower then 1.5 ohms. Iike dcgc said it puts out the same amount of power between 1.5 and 4 ohms. Besides i would go with the 1000/1 if you upgrade to a third W3v2.

If I'm not mistaken the actual load from the JL is an average. My 500/1, that I am not using anymore, had a load of 1.3ohm when I checked with a digital meter when I upgraded my 10w3D4's to my 12w6v2's. I ended up using a load (from amp) at 4ohm. which actually reads 3.5ohm.

Was that reading a constant reading or the lowest reading you got dcgc?

i wsa told by the best car audio guy that the 500/1 could take another sub. and i figured it out: i could wire each sub to 1ohm andhook them to the amp in series producing a 3ohm load. is that not correct?

yes that is correct, go to the JL Website there are many wiring config using thier products online, but you can run the 3 subs at a 3 ohm load to this amp and you will be fine....in a sealed box, considering you are going to be cuttin power to each sub. you shouldnt expect more then a 2-3 db increase
