    The subs will be seeing different amounts of power which is a terrible idea

    If you really want to, run that d2 in series so itll be at 4 ohms.

    Thought that said DVC 4 ohm, my bad... They would be seeing "roughly" the same power. But it's still not a good idea to mix subs

    If its a dual 4 ohm, then you can only wire it at 2 or 8 ohms. So it wouldnt be seeing the same wattage. But yeah, I wouldnt mix subs.
