    Can u run 2 ohm load on bridged amp rated only at 4 ohm?

    I am just wondering if you can run a 4ohm DVC sub on a bridged channel on a 4 channel amp. Amp requires 4ohm but wondering if you turned the amp down to where its not trying to put out anymore than rated power would it be ok?

    Don't do it. Run each voice coil to a separate amp channel or get a 2 ohm stable amp. A small sub amp is cheap. Damaging your 4 channel amp by running it this way is not worth it.
