    Icon32 1 ohm stable Mono amp. Two 2 ohm dvc. Help please

    I got a hifonics Brutus
    it is stable at 1 ohm

    I have 2 alpine type r 2 ohm dvc.
    Right now I have it wired series then parralel to get a 2 ohm load to the amp.

    I was wondering since this amp IS 1 ohm stable and has 2 terminals,
    can I wire each sub parralel to get 1 ohm load each and run each to the two terminals on the amp. Would I be getting a 1 ohm load?

    Basically can I have the each sub wired parralel and connect each sub seperatly to each terminal on the mono amp?

    Thanks guys

    Please help. I searched everywhere can't find an answer.

    The dual terminals are wired together internally.

    You'll need to switch to dual 4 ohm subs if you want to obtain a 1 ohm load...

    You can run .5 ohm (not recommended) or 2 ohm.

    You need two D4 or D1 subs to get a 1 ohm load.



    System Layout help available via PM.

    My system:
    Sounds good.
