    two 8 ohm subs into a 4 ohm load

    is there any way that I can run two 8 ohm subs into a 4 ohm load? Making them run @ 4 ohms instead of 8

    This is effectively wiring your woofers in paralel, thus reducing the ohm load by half.<br />Wire your 8 ohm subs like this and you will have a 4 ohm mono load.
