    Wiring Kicker CVR properly.

    Basically I want to wire 2 12" Kicker CVR dual 2ohm subs to an amp that can run a minimum of 2ohm. amp specs:
    2 x 250 Watts RMS @ 4 Ohms
    2 x 450 Watts RMS @ 2 Ohms
    1 x 900 Watts @ 4 Ohms Bridged
    Dynamic Power @ 4 Ohms 450W x 2
    Dynamic Power @ 2 Ohms 800W x 2
    Bridged Power @ 2 Ohms 1900W x 1
    Min. Speaker Impedance 2 Ohm

    My Question is:
    How would I wire the subs for max output and keep them at 2ohm load, if possible. If not, I guess Ill find a different amp.
    Thanks,
    Itsbmw.

    wire the speakers in series giving each sub a 4 ohm load then wire it in parrallel giving you your 2 ohm load.

    Positive wire from the amp to red terminal. Black terminal to red terminal with dot. Black terminal with dot to negative on the amp.

    Repeat for sub 2.

    Win.

    That'll only give you 250w per sub, but you can't wire it to 1 ohm per channel or bridge at 2 ohms. Your best bet is to get a 2 ohm stable mono amp. I'd recommend a ZX1000.1 or a ZX750.1
