    Will ZX400.1 work with 1 cvrdual 2 ohm?

    i have my cvr dual 2 ohm wirfed to 4 ohms bridged right now at about 300 rms and i found a cheap zx400 but is it possible to run my subs at 2 ohms? cause i think this amp is only 200 rums at 4ohm

    If the Zx is stable at 1ohm, that's your only other option besides 4..

    This is FALSE INFORMATION!!!!! Yes you can..You have the option to run One coil @1/2 the rms factor on ANY DVC subwoofer..Im running 2DVC 4ohm Kicker CVR on one coil ea,at 4ohms ea for a total 2ohm load on one amp, and have done several subs in the past with no issues ever..You are only going to get 1/2 of the RMS rating of the sub woofers recommendation.Please DO NOT GIVE OUT FALSE INFORMATION Sir.

    You can run that Kicker on one set of coils of that sub@1/2 the RMS factor without any issues as long as you set your gains correctly/no clipping issues, and you will be just fine..Later on, you can get another dvc2 ohm sub, the same, and you will be able to use this amp on all 4 coils @the 2ohm load for both subs at the total RMS rating for both subs

    You can take a DMM, and check both coils, to see if either is still good,to run as a single voice coil sub,at that ohm load..just because one coil is gone , doesnt mean the other isnt,and can be ran at 1/2 the rms rating of the DVC sub..I have ran several subs that way, and still do from time to time as back up subs.No issues
