    Which subwoofer(s)?

    I've got a Boston Acoutics GT-2125 and want to be able to power two subs. Below are the amplifiers specs for reference:

    4 ohms: 125 watts x 2 chan.
    2 ohms: 200 watts x 2 chan.
    Bridged, 4 ohms: 400 watts x 1 chan.
    Bridged, 2 ohms: 600 watts x 1 chan.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!

    DCON's in the proper box will get nasty with the power you have.

    Re: Which subwoofer(s)?

    I run the same amp. If I had a twin for my ID10, I wouldn't think twice about running them both on the Boston. Basically any 250-300W sub would do great in pairs. But my overall vote would be for a pair of Dayton HO SVC 4ohms.

    Re: Which subwoofer(s)?

    If I were to run two parallel 300w @ 4 ohm subs on the 600w @ 2 ohm load, that be alright?

    Correct, I agree with the dcon suggestion as well as the sundown e series.

    I just want to verify that the above set up WOULD work.

    You'd need Dual 2ohm DVC subs or Single 4 ohm subs to run as a pair for the Boston. Just make sure you don't get DVC 4ohms.

    Re: Which subwoofer(s)?

    Actually that's really helpful, thanks!

    So the boston will basically run any two subwoofers (ran parallel) whose RMS is around 300, and are either a SVC 4 Ohm or DVC 2 Ohm on the 600w @ 2 Ohm load?

    Re: Which subwoofer(s)?

    Yes, sir. Just make sure that you run the pair of DVC 2ohm subs in series-parallel or you'll be at 0.5 ohms...amp won't last long that way.
