    the a8000t is a mono amp but is not a class D is a class A/B...

    that amp is 2ohm stable so you can run 2 4ohm svc subs or 2 2ohm dcv subs or 1 4ohm dvc sub... any of these configs in order to get the max power from the amp.



    Front Stage: Kicker DS600.2 Comps
    Rear Fill: Kicker KS693
    Sub Stage: Pair 10's Kicker CVX 2.8 cubes @ 37.5hz
    Mids/highs amp: Exile X600.4
    Sub amp: Exile X1200.1

    No, you can not. It is impossible to wire two dual 4ohms subs into a final 2ohm load. Only wiring options are 1ohm and 4ohm.

    You can do it, it is not a matter of "can I", but more of "will it work best"... And no, it will not. Two DVC 4 ohm drivers can NOT be wired toa final 2 ohm load, you can wire them to 1 or 4 or 16 ohms. 1 ohm will be too low of a load for your amplifier and it will SURELY fry, do NOT attempt a 1 ohm load on an Audiobahn that is not rated for it... 4 ohms is your only other option, but you will not get a high amount of power from the amp.

    Nothing wrong with underpowering a driver...

    What subs are you looking to run?

    Might want to upgrade to a better amp.

    Doesn't sound like that Audiobahn amp even has enough power to adequately power two of those subs.

    You're better off with one anyways.
