    Re: Alpine DVC Subs Instal Question

    you cant just set them up as 2 ohm.
    im pretty sure in your case you'll be running one amp to each sub.
    what model alpine subs do you have?
    if you have dual 4 ohm subs then they'll show the amps a two ohm load
    if you have dual 2 ohm subs then they'll show the amps a four ohm load
    think of is as you have two separate systems, each sub and amp being it's own system.

    one sub to one amp

    make sure the jumpers on the subs are connecting both red terminals together and both black terminals together. Then just get a wire from one of the red and one of the black to go to your amp, and on the amp just put the red on one of the positive connections and put the black on one of the negative.

    yup just like that.
    now just run that set of wires to one amp and do the same for the other amp and sub.
