    Icon32 break in

    I recieved my 12w6v2 today and still waiting for the box. I want to break it in using my home stereo as many of you have described doing. It is dual 4ohms so how do i wire it to the stereo?? Do i need to hook it up to subwoofer output, or can i use the regular speaker output?

    Also i think you have to wire it to 4 ohms, right?? but the sub is dual 4 ohms so i can wire it to only 8ohms or 2 ohms?

    ohhhh nevermind dont put it into the speaker outputs: bad idea, no high frequencies should go to the subs. and yes, wire it to 8 or 2 ohms and its fine. my bad
