    gimme some info on the subs. Dual voice coil I assume? What ohm rating do they have. You may not want to set up at .5 ohms so a series parallel on the speakers maybe? Let me know what the resistance and config of the speakers is

    I have heard of only 1 line of amps that claim to be able to run at .5 ohms. I am not real sure of the manufacturer, but I believe that it is Soundstream. The series of amps were named 'Tarantula' and 'Davincci'. I read a review on them and they sounded like awesome amps, but big$$$.
