    Rockford Fosgate power hx2 help

    I have a question. I have just bought one 12" rfr 3112(power hx2) It has 2 2ohm voice coils. now my question is, how do i wire them for 2 ohms???
    I was told you cant wire them for two ohms. only 1ohm or 4ohms. I bought the rockford bd1000.1 amp to power the sub. it gives off 500 watts at 4ohms but i want to give them the 1000watts the amp gives at 2 ohms.

    GEONN!!! NO WAY!! you cant make a single 2ohm DVC sub to produce 2ohms impendance.. its only 1ohm and 4ohm...

    1ohm = parallel wiring
    4ohm = combination series & parallel

    if you have a PAIR of 2ohm DVC subs, then you can wire them in combination series & parallel to produce 2ohms.
