    is this amp too much power

    you might have seen my post b4 but i just got my subs in and i upgraded my amp to a profile 2000

    320 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms
    480 watts RMS x 2 at 2 ohms
    960 watts RMS x 1 bridged output at 4 ohms


    but heres the thing i have kicker cvr's so i want to wire them up to two channels so they will only recieve 320 rms to each sub. but they are DVC 4ohm subs... here is the diagram that was recommended to me on how to wire them.



    but wiring them that way i will have to have the amp bridged correct? is there any alternative to wiring them, like will i have to wire them bridged like that? or is there some way to wire them to 2 channels?

    Edit: Prowler needs to read more carefully in the future...

    The amount of power they get is proportional to the gain/volume knob. Just because you wire them to get 480watts each, they wont ever see that much power unless you turn the volume up that high.

    Just wire them each series/parallel like that picture and watch the gain and volume..

    juju the amp comes with a bass nob. i want to be able to turn these things up so is there a screw or something on the amp i can turn the level down or something? or should i just wire them up like the diagram and then leave the bass nob on half or something.

    x2... use the formula in the sticky and set the gain to put out however many watts you want.
