    Quantum doesn't have a good reputation. There power ratings are not CEA compliant. The amp is not likely to put out RMS anywhere near what the spec says. If it says "2 ohm stable" then don't run it at 1 ohm, you're just asking for trouble (IMO).

    alright then well here is another question i have a 4 ohm sub that i would like to wire to 1 ohm and did some messing around with the sub and found that if i connect both the positive and negative sides of both voice coils they equal out to .5 ohm on each side will my sub actually work wired like that?
