    hrm you prolly could, but i wouldnt...
    it would be safer to send them only 300 to each coil, so 600 total persub, so 1200 watts at 2 ohms....
    send each sub 600 watts, and you shall be VERY happy...

    It is my belief that the Type R's are underrated and can deal with 500-600 watts RMS no problem.

    15" can handle 500 watts rms. 10" and 12" can only handle 300.

    dvc



    Dual Voice coils are not for power they are for wiring.

    By having dual voice coils it allows you to wire your sub up to pull much different types of ohms so you can work with a more vartiey of amps.

    Example:

    lets say you have 3 Audiobahn Alums 10 inch, which are dual 6 ohm that means 3 ohm or 12 ohm operation 800 watts rms;

    If you wire all the subs in paralell-paralell that means all +'s to the + of the amp and all the -'s to the - of the amp it will pull 1 ohm. If you use the 2300 hcx audiobahn amp which is rated at 2400 watts rms at 1ohm, you divide that by 3 (number of subs of course) which will be 800 watts rms per sub. pretty simple.

    www.audiobahninc.com under tech support has some picture of how to wire up dvc's

    i would recommend looking, i've yet to find any other website that tells dvc wiring options.

    If some one steals your system, get pissed, then shoot them.
