    You can run a dual 2ohm at 1 or 4ohm and you can run a dual 4ohm at 8 or 2ohm.

    Re: ohmage

    Can I take 1 4 ohm type r and run it at 2 ohms with a monoblock or should I just get the 2 ohm sub?

    If the subwoofer is a single voice coil 4 ohm woofer then you can only run it at 4 ohms. If your amp is 2 ohm stable get the 2 ohm sinlge voice coil type arhh. If the subwoofer is a dual voice coil subwoofer than get the dual 4 ohm coil subwoofer
