    you cant, you can either wire it in series to sustain a 4 ohm load or in parallel for a 1 ohm load

    you can wire them up however you choose.....chances are it won't sound good or last very long tho

    like the guy said, you're better off with just one big-*** amp.

    Re: 2 amps 1 voice coil

    that's so much power...
    no need for it...

    go with a single 1100 or even an 1800 if you are feeling quite adventurous

    Re: 2 amps 1 voice coil

    I was referring more to the power levels
    teh 1100 will be plenty of power for any daily driver setup... esepcially if the box is ported...
