    Some help with an amp selection!

    I got an audiobahn alum15q 1100 watt rms sub recently.
    but i have not got my amp yet because i dont wanna get the wrong one.
    OK, the speaker has dual 6 ohm vioce coils that operate on 3 or 12 ohms. Im kinda new to all this car audio but that means the lowest load my speaker can take is 3 ohms right?
    So i was eyeballing the jbl bp1200.1 amp to power it.
    the amp is 1200 wats @ 2 ohms
    and 600 watts @ 4 ohms
    so I would have to wire the speaker in parallel to get 3 ohms and it would be pushing about 900 watts to my speaker correct?

    Well maybe if there is a better amp i could use or a better way to wire my speaker someone could let me know? any help would be appreciated... thanks

    Re: Some help with an amp selection!

    if you run it paralel wouldn't that give you 2Ohms not 3, cause it divides it in half
    and you said it can only go to 3 so i'm thinking thats not gonna work, but i might be wrong
