    Two Kicker CVR's from an internet company - $200
    One sealed Bestbuy enclosure for the CVR's - $90
    Having a XXX just waiting to replace it all - priceless.

    Wait..Dosn't the bx1500 run 1500watts@1ohm? If so you have 2 dual 4's. Aire parallel parallel for a 1ohm load.

    if they were dual 2 ohm then i would be getting a 1 ohm load, but since they r dual 4 ohm only 2 ohm load

    Yes Im aware of that. Wire the 2 woofers together. Series parallel =4ohm load, parallel parallel=1ohm load.

    Re: why i hate my setup right now

    2 Dual 4 ohm, wired in parallel = 1 ohm load
    2 Dual 4 ohm, wired in series = 4 ohm load

    2 Dual 2 ohm, wired in parallel = .5 ohm load
    2 Dual 2 ohm, wired in series = 2 ohm load

    blackgeltabs is right... good for him!!!

    Sorry, wierd mood, just got another job! More bling for my ride now!!!
