    well it's a general rule around here that you won't get an answer with your caps lock button on. most likely you will get a picture of the location of the caps lock button on your keyboard just in case you forgot how to turn it off.

    Thanks for not yelling. It's considered very poor manners.

    I can't address the box question, other than what I've read... ported boxes tend to be louder, sealed boxes have better SQ. I think sealed is what most folks choose. If you search this site for the phrase "sealed AND boxes", you'll get almost 200 threads on the subject.

    As for wiring, the VR's are dual VC and you can get them either dual 4 or dual 2 ohms.

    The JBL mono amps like 2 ohm loads. If you get one of those, then get the D2 subs, wire the coils in series, and parallel the 2 subs. That'll give you 2 ohm total mono load.

    The RF amp wants 2 ohms per channel, or 4 ohms bridged. If you get that amp, buy the D4 subs and wire each coil in parallel and either connect each channel to it's own sub or put the subs in series and run the amp bridged.

    Hope I helped.
