    your wiring options are 4connections of 4ohms,2@2ohms,2@8ohms,1@16ohms,1@4ohms,1@1ohm. So if your looking for a 2ohm connection with DVC 4ohm sub you would have 2 connections.

    you would have 2 connections for 2 channels of an AMP. YOU would put each speaker's coils in parrallel by wiring the positives & negitives togther then connect that to the amp.

    so i wire 1 sub two each channel of a 2 channel amp? i think this is how you describe it. b/c i was wanting to run a mono amp, and with the setup you gave me i could not use a mono amp? say i connected the subs in series two a mono amp? what whould the ohms be?
