    Re: What size wire to run to my subwoofer?

    if u got a d2 means dual 2ohm voice coils, u can only run this as a 1ohm or 4ohm load wiring configuration, meaning with the amp u got, u can only run it at 4ohm, so ur only feeding it 500watts. http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftec...hmDVC_1ohm.png http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftec...hmDVC_4ohm.png
    if u had a d4, dual 4ohm voice coils, yes u could wire it down to a 2ohm load. http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftec...hmDVC_2ohm.png
    the only way ur going to run that amp at full power is to run a dual 4ohm voice coil sub, or get another dual 2ohm voice coil sub and wire it in series to create a 2ohm final load. http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftec...hmDVC_2ohm.png
    this amp is NOT designed to run at 1ohms. lowest impedance is 2OHM!! @1000watts rms.
