    to me it sounds like he's confused... im trying to get it straight...
    do you have single 4 ohm coils? dual 4 ohm coils on each sub? dual 2 ohm? etc etc... let me know for sure

    ok..
    wire each sub in parallel... 2 2 ohm loads...
    now wire these in SERIES single 4 ohm load.
    however, that amp will be soft on that pair of subs...

    no, those subs are the right VC configs, just htat amp has relatively low power for a pair of them...
    good power for a single one... but not for a pair...
    its RMS is onlyy 900 watts.

    actually, that is the peak rating...
    rms is a mere 900 watts... and it may be underrated, but not more than 1000 watts will come from it.
