    What amp should I use and how should I wire it? Details needed!!!

    I'm getting ready to buy a 12" Power HX2 for 300 bucks new, just wondering what amp I should use its a dual 2 Ohm voice coil design. so would that mean I would need a 1 Ohm stable amp to get the most potential out of it? Or could I use a 2 channel and bridge it......ive never had a dvc sub so im not exactly sure of how to wire it.....any help would be appreciated.......and i would also like to know if anyone has a website with programs to design and figure out box volumes??? THANKS MUCH

    All you would have to do is wire you sub in parrlell all the +s and _s together to the amp and this will create your 1 ohm load on your amp although if i were you i would just gvet a 4ohm version and buy off e-bay will get the sub for 50+ dollars cheaper.

    The guy is right, bridging the two subs is the best bet to get the 1 ohm

    wire the voice coils in series to get a nice 4-ohm load. very few amps are stable at one ohm.
