    impedence question

    alright, 2 subs with dual 4 ohm voice coils...right now ive got them run in series parallel to a 4 ohm load...if my amp was 1 ohm stable, would it be better to run the subs at a 1 ohm load rather than 4? when i say better, i mean louder/better sound

    If your amp is one ohm stable it probably does put out more power at 1 ohm than 4ohms so yea you would get louder. There may be a bit more distortion in the output, just set it up right though and you'll be fine.
