    if it is the 4ohm dvc then wire parallel to create 2ohm at the amp

    if it is the 2ohm dvc then wire series to create 4ohm at the amp....500/1 amps are rated for 1.5ohm and i don't know if you can run them at 1 ohm!?

    if it can be run at 1ohm then wire the 2ohm dvc parallel for 1ohm load

    it is 4 ohm thats for your help ! does anyone know if it would hurt anything to run the 500/1 amp with the speaker wired in parallel with a 2 ohm load ? thanks

    It should be fine. They have regulated power supplies from 1.5-4ohms?
