    stereo gurus's.. need help mtx1501d and 8500's

    I need to find out if the this amp is 1ohm stable? the speakers are wired in parallel and I have the amp wired at 1 ohm right now... is it safe? can this amp handle it ? I had wired everything parallel @ 2 ohms but for the equipment being what it is I didn't think it was hitting the way it should be.. also when I turn it up it seems like my mids fade away, is this a sign i need to cap my subs? or what can this be? i never encountered this problem before..

    Thanks for any help...

    depending on which 1501d it is.

    the newer one is rated at 1500@1 and obviously runs at 1 ohm.

    the older 1501d runs 1500@2 and needs to have a protection circuit removed to run at 1 ohm.

    yeah when you pull too more power than the electrical can produce something has to suffer weather it be bass mids or even the car shutting off on you
