    Icon32 3 2ohm DVC subs wired to 1ohm?

    Alright, guys, so I have three DVC 10s that are 2ohm/coil and a monoblock amp. I need to split 1000w x 3 subs. They are rated 250 RMS a piece/500w max. What I need to know is how to wire them to change the 2ohms to 1ohm. They will be running from only one channel. I have searched around all over the place and just can't find the answer Im looking for. I mean, I have seen wiring diagrams and such, but the commentary was vague and I just need some confirmation. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    wire the voice coils on each sub in series and then wire all the subs parallel for 1.5 ohms.

    who the hell knows how many watts it will drop? Hell, you might have box rise and it will go above 1.33. Just put it in at that ohm load, run it, if it doesn't sound good then do some research and buy some subs that will be better suited for your amp, or vice versa
