    He has two subs.... Two DVC subs, wired in parralell = a 1 ohm load.

    And dont expect 1800w from that amp at all.

    And the others are right, you do not need twice the RMS nearly to get loud. And from what I have seen, there are conflicting reports on whether or not the amplifier will put out rated power. Some show the BX1500d put out right at it, some show it put out less, I would imagine the 1800 is the same way. Either way you should be getting at least rated coil handling power to the drivers. Enjoy and let us know what happens.
