    One 4 ohm 10" sub vs two 8 ohm 10s

    Right now I'm running one 8 ohm 10" sub because my other one blew. It does OK, but it lacks the gut wrenching lows I used to get when I was running both subs. Because I'm running my amp into an 8 ohm load (as opposed to before when I was running both subs in parallel giving my amp a 4 ohm load it pushed 500 wrms to the subs), it's now only pushing 250 wrms to the single sub. I'm wondering if I'd be better off going with a single 4 ohm sub capable of handling 500 wrms, or should I go with two subs (that I can wire into a 4 ohm load) capable of handling 250 wrms?

    The amp is an Alpine MRV-545 and the one 8 ohm sub I'm using now is a Sundown SD-1v1. I guess if I were to go with two 10s I'd be looking at the ID Tidals. I haven't really looked at any 10s that would handle 500 wrms yet so I don't really what I'd go with there. I realize there'd be twice the cone area with two subs vs using one, but that is based on if both subs have the same amount of xmax.

    It doesn't seem to matter what the topic is I post in here, I always get very few responses. What's up with this?
