    adding 2 subs for a total of 4, what ohm should i get?

    Couldnt think how to word the title right. Basically I want to get lets say 2 twelves and put them on 600 a peice. Then I want to save money upgrade four subs (same subs just adding two more)and a better amp, and put 600 rms to all four. I'd want to do this at one ohm pretty much the whole time to save money. Is is possible to run the first two at 1 ohm, and keep it at one ohm when I upgrade to 4? If so what ohm subs should I be buying.

    if they are D4 subs, then with 4 subs you'll only have 2 ohm final, only way you can do it is with 4 D2 subs in series wiring.




    09 Sienna Subs : 4 hdc3 18s c pillar below windowline Sub amp: ampere tfe 8.0 at half ohm.
    Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS Mids/Highs amp: PPI 900.4
    Front stage: 3 way active front stage with Massive Audio CKX tweets, alpine type R 6x9 midrange in doors + Crescendo PWX 10s in the kick
    320 amp Singer alt. 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

    Re: adding 2 subs for a total of 4, what ohm should i get?

    Lets say I got two 15 vvx and ran them off my brz1200 at 1 ohm. Down the line I wanted to add two more and run 600 to each, I won't be able to do it at 1 ohm? What would be my best route if wanted two now and to run four later

    you can just get another brz 1200 and run them in seperate amps. at 1 ohm each

    Or get a BRX2400 and run it at 2 ohms now, then run it at 1 ohm when you get the rest of the subs.
