    amp and OHM help

    I currently have a Kenwood KAC 792S and am looking into getting the JLw6 sub or the Kicker Solobaric L5...What OHM's should I have my subs at to match up the OHM for this AMP. The amp will be bridged into a single channel.


    Another ? I was thinking about was with subs now having dual voice coils, is it possible to take a 2 channel amp and run each channel to a voice coil?

    I'm going to guess that the amp is a 2-channel amp, and is only 4ohm bridged stable. Which means you want the final impedance to be a 4ohm load. Which means the subs need to be either single 4ohm voice coils, or dual 2ohm voice coils.

    Yes.
