    2 or 4 ohm dual voice coil subs for mono amp?

    Good Morning Everyone,

    I'm looking to upgrade my subwoofer setup in my Mustang.

    I am interested in getting a pair of Alpine R-Type 10" subs. These are dual voice coil woofers that come in a 2ohm and 4ohm variety.

    I was also looking at using an Alpine MPR-M1000 monoblock amp to power the pair of subs.

    My question is this: Which ohm rating of subs do I need to get to have the amp properly power the set?

    I do apologize for the novice question. No, I will not be installing these myself, I am just trying to get better understanding of the technology involved.

    Thank you kindly for reading this.

    From the product listings it shows: Speaker Impedance: 4 or 2 Ohm

    A direct link to the amp I am looking at is : http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...MRP-M1000.aspx

    Thank you for your help.

    Thank you for the replies gentlemen.

    I do apologize for the novice question. Trying to get a better understanding of what everything actually does rather than just purchasing what the installer recommends. =)

    personally i would buy one 15" unless you already have the 2 10" box. if you go with one sub, you need a dual 4 ohm with the mrp-1000
