    Can you bridge it at 4ohm? You could get two dual voice coil (DVC) subs and wire them in Parallel so you get two seperate 2 ohm loads.

    I can bridge it to 1200 rms at 4 ohm, but wouldnt that be the same as just runing 2 channels at 600 rms 2 ohm? Or is my understanding wrong?

    no that is about the same I was just wondering becuase you could also get two svc 2 ohm subs then.

    ok, u have a lot of versatility...u can get numerous diff. types of voice coil configurations. You could get one sub and send it 1200 watts @ 4ohms bridged...the sub would have to be either single voice coil 4ohm or dual voice coil 2ohm sub. With 2 subs, you could either get 2 single voice coil 2 ohm subs and send 600 watts from each channel to it...or 2 dual voice coil 4ohm subs and wire the voice coils of each sub to 2ohms and send 600 watts from each channel. Also, with 2 subs...two dual 4ohm can be wired to 4ohm birdged to give them a total of 1200 watts. What type of subs are u looking for...sq or spl?? and what is ur price range? and j/w what is ur amp? u can get a lot of help from here...peace

    thanks a lot guys, its a legacy 2400 max, cheap amp with a lot of power. As for what kind of subs I want, I'm leaning more towards SQ because I have a chevy extended cab. Not much air in there. If you have any recomendations it would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking about two audio bahn 12's, but like I said I'm new to this game. So if you pro's have any good suggestions. I'm looking to spend no more than 500-600 on the subs.
