    Stuck with 2ohm DVC subs, ways to get 1 ohm final load?

    Well, if I had two 2 ohm DVC subs, my options are .5 2 or 8 ohms. Well, I was wondering if I could wire to .5 ohms, and just add wire length or maybe run through a few aluminum posts or something that have resistance until I was showing a 1 ohm load. Theoretically it makes sense.

    Cliffs: Amp only rated for 1 ohm. Have two 2 ohm DVC subs, trying to get 1 ohm for daily.

    This sounds kinda dumb but I dont see why it couldnt work. I mean a lot of times its going to end up being more like .7 or .8 anyway after you wire it up.

    Thoughts?

    What amp? a bigger box brings your impedance up I've heard.

    It will hardly see below 1 ohm on music anyway

    Yeah I think during the music it will fluctuate below 1 ohm. But what I'm saying is as long as it is seeing 1 ohm at rest, 1 ohm is 1 ohm right? Even if its attained by adding metal resistance lol
