    mono amp Ohms question?

    What is the best Ohms to use on a mono amp that is stable at 4, 2, 1 Ohms what is the difference besides the more power when using a lower Ohm rating? Does the amp run hotter with a lower Ohm usage and will the amp be used to the max meaning more where and tear less life of the amp. I was thinking of running 2 4ohm dvc subs 600w rms each,1200w peak each, wired parallel/parallel doesn't that equal 1ohm would this be stressing the amp 2000w rms @ 1 ohm stable amp would this be a good pairing of sub to amp or should I go to a 3000w rms @ 1 ohm amp?

    if the amp is stable on 1 ohm it is not stressing the amp

    2k rms should be PLENTY for x2 600w rms subs, depending on what subs we're talking here that may even be too much...
