    Re: how would this sound???

    get a bigger amp and run 1 amp to both subs,,,, thats the way to go sir!!! if you go with 2 sererate amp,, each sub will recieve a different amount of power,,, 1 amp will distrubute power equally to both subs,,,,,,, go with shivas... end of discusssion,,,,, KTHNXBYE

    The Shiva's are 8ohm DVC. Wire the coils in paralell for 4ohms. Use 2 Shiva's wired in paralell for 2ohms. If your amp does full power at 4ohms, then use 1 Shiva. If it does full power at 2ohms, then use 2 Shivas...

    The problem of using 2 diff amps is that you have to have the gains set on them near perfect to ensure that the subs will be getting the same amount of power at X volume. Also its probably easier on your wallet if youre buying 1 more powerful amp rather than 2 smaller ones.

    Decide which subs you want, based on performance, price, brand loyalty, looks... whatever floats your boat. THEN decide which amp works for those subs.
