    Looking at a P2 8 inch from amazon Deciding on a 4 or 2 ohm DVC

    Right now I am building a custom center console for my pickup. I'm going to put an 8 inch inside of it, and I am deciding now whether to buy a 2 or 4 ohm dvc. The amp i am running will be a sony 4 channel. Its a 4/3 and I think that it bridges at 4 ohm... what do you guys think I need?

    Soon to add an 8" in custom center console

    What does that Sony amp put out? Need to know the power your dealing with to make recommendations.

    Not much you can do with that. Would you be willing to upgrade your amplifier? There are plenty of budget amps that put out 500rms that would open up your options a whole lot as far as a decent subwoofer would go.

    Well all I drive a 97 Dodge with 160k on her. Definitely not a pretty pickup, really just wanting something to add a little extra. I don't listen to music that loud. I mean im definitely open to suggestions, I just don't want a system that just slams.

    (College tuition kinda nips at the available cash fund too haha)
