    4 channel amp 2 different ohm loads?

    I've got a 4 channel Viper amp. I want to use the front 2 channels at 4 ohms on some components. I wanna use the rear channels to a set of subs. The subs are each SVC 2ohms. Can you have 2 different ohm loads on 1 amp? Thanks, by the way, Im the man.

    Then can't I just wire pos to pos and neg to neg from speaker to amp on each speaker?

    Yes, you can wire one sub to one channel, and one sub to the other channel. Or, you can bridge the rear two channels and wire the subs in series. Either way should result in the same power output.
