    Quick question ( subs amp )

    What you guys think is better for my electrical system and performance :

    SHould i buy 2 dvc 600 rms (2 ohms ) and run my amps at 2 ohm
    or buy 2 dvc 600 rms (4 ohms ) and run my amps at 1 ohm

    Here my amp spec :

    Audiopipe apsm-2000 Power :900W @ 4 Ohm rms
    1400W @ 2 Ohm rms
    2000W @ 1 Ohm rms

    ( i know my amp dont do the rated power so let say it does what it say -25% )

    ohm load doesnt matter much if your running the same power reguarless. id wire to 1 ohm just so the amp gain would be as low as possible

    at 1k rms i would definately wire to 1 ohm. if the big 3 and power/ground is all decent 4g wire you should be fine, only pulling 70-80 amp, may get dimming at idle.
