    Amp/Sub Question

    I recently purchased a Hifonics HFi1000D, and one Alpine 1223D sub.
    The amp is rated for
    RMS Power Rating:
    4 ohms: 475 watts x 1 chan.
    2 ohms: 750 watts x 1 chan.
    1 ohms: 1000 watts x 1 chan.

    The sub is a DVC 2 ohm rated at 300-600 rms

    I wasn't thinking on how to wire up the sub and didnt realize that it could only be wire up to 1 ohm and 4 ohm. Obviously, if I wire it up to a 4 ohm load, the amp is under powering the sub.
    If I do 1 ohm is over by 400.

    I'm just wondering if it is okay to to wire it to a 1 ohm load, or If i should try to find a better amp for the sub?

    Re: Amp/Sub Question

    Either way, you will be fine, as long as you start with the gain,at 0 and work your way up to setting it..Max is max/burp!Run it at 1ohm load, at your min levels will be great, being conservative on the gain as well as it running a bit cooler verses an almost maxed out gain,running a bit warmer/harder for the demand
