    4 channel amp with 2 dvc's

    I just got my 2ohm 4kw hooked up to my 2 crossfire xt's. They are 1.4 ohm dvc subs. It's hooked up with my amp running 4 channels bridged to 2 channels and running at 2.8 each. I'm wondering if I should just run each channel to each coil or if it it's best the way it is now. I don't want to risk blowing anything up even though it would be covered. In theory it should work but I'm wondering if the cable lengths need to be exact if I run each channel to each coil.

    bridge the channels and just run one sub per channel. its not good to run a channel to each vc. cuz some people say its not the exact same signal.

    one sub a channel.

    well...unless the gain is set exactly the same running a vc to each channel can be hazardous

    I always thought the same thing. On this amp though the gain would be the same. Right now I can either run at a 2.8 ohm load or a 0.7 ohm load. I don't think it would like 0.7 ohms. I would think if I could get each channel at 1.4 ohms I would get optimum power from this amp and to my subs.

    Found my answer. It's amp dependent and in my amps case the gain would be negligible to wire each channel to each coil, like a 6 watt increase.
