    wire it to the sub to 2 ohm (assuming its dvc4) and look on ebay for 2 ohm stable amps.

    well im lost, cerwin says its a dual voice coil sub but its nom is 4 ohm

    http://www.cerwinvega.com/manuals/mo...oferManual.pdf

    if its a 4 ohm sub, go with US Amps, if its 2 ohm, the Alpine

    and i wouldnt buy a Lanzar or Leg amp

    if its a dual 4 ohm voice coil, it can be wired in to 2 or 8 ohms

    if its a dual 2 ohm, it can be wired in to 1 or 4 ohms

    if its a single 4 ohm coil, it can only be wired up 4 ohms

    ....2 coil, can be only wire up 2 ohms

    you really need to find out what it is, i'd contact CV
