    alright well to get the best outta the situation you suggest just doing 4ohms to 4ohms like it says in crutchfield's diagram?

    That's all you can do if you have DVCs. If you have singles it should be at 2 ohm already. It's a very ****** amp and honestly those subs are not much better. You got hosed like thousands others do everyday by false advertising.

Well, 15 minutes down the road, at the level they tuned the system at(base and subwoofer levels(-6)) it shut off when i changed the song. i stop take the key out restart the system and it works again. The amp was pretty hot. The next day the same thing happened but a lot sooner this time maybe 4 minutes into my drive. I got out and the amp was still running(light was still on). Took the key out put it back in and it worked fine. The amp this time wasn't that hot. What do you think it could be? Maybe they shoulda made it 2 ohms instead of 1 because i know the more ohm the less stress it is on the system. PLEASE HELP thanks a lot
    From the bit you said. Possibly the amplifier isnt 1 ohm stable. Putting that low of an ohm on an amplifier that isnt ment to go that low puts it into protect mode. Try to put the ohms to 4. Cause you cant put two DVC 4 Ohm speakers to a final impedance of 2 Ohms.
