i have a kicker cvr 12" 4ohm dvc sub rated at 400watts rms. is it ok to wire the sub in parallel to get the 2ohm load into a 2 channel amp that gives 400watts rms at 2ohms each channel but using only one of the channels?

bridged its at 400rms at 4ohms. if i do it bridged id have to wire in series giving 8ohms to the amp so therefore ill only be getting half of power when bridged :(

I wonder if you can put each voice coil to a channel, each of those voice coils are 2ohm? unfortunately i cannot help

Wrong section brutha. But yes, you can wire the sub @ 2 ohm to one channel. Depending on what amp it is you might even be able to run it at 2 ohm bridged though I doubt it...
