    Wiring a 2 DVC subs

    Hey I am buying a pair of subs this week and I am wondering wether its better to get 2 or 4 ohm DVCs. I know if you wire 2 4-ohm DVCs in Parrellel you can get a 1 ohm load outta them and split the amp power to each sub, I am wondering if this puts a hell of a load on the amp. Thanks for your time

    not many amps can handle a one ohm mono load. but with dual 4 ohm subs you can run the subs at 2ohm stereo which a lot more amps can handle. dual 2ohm are good two but you have to look at more wiring options, i just got a pair of audiobahn aw1208x's they are dual 1ohm and i am going to run them at .5 ohm stereo to a ma audio high current amp



    HU: Pioneer Premier P-720
    Front: JVC 2 way 6.5" component system
    Rear: Kenwood KFC-1687
    Subs: (2) 2002 Kicker 15" L7's
    Amps: (2) Infinity Beta Digital 300's
    (2) 1 farad Stinger Power Caps
    (2) 1 farad Monster Cable Monster Caps
