    Can I ohm a single svc (4)ohm down to 2 ohm?

    Hi, I'm new here. I was just trying to get the most out of my set-up. I have a kenwood kac7201 amp and a 12" eclipse sw6123.4 sub. The amp is 230x2 @2 ohms and 460w x 1 @ 4ohms. The reason why I'm asking if you can ohm the sub down to 2ohms is because 460 is too much. It's a 250 rms sub. And...

    Do class D amps drop ohms like bridging a 2 channel?

    My title pretty much sums it up. I'm wondering if my class d mono amplifier will lower the ohms the same way bridging does. My understanding is that, let's say you bridged a 4 ohm subwoofer, you then would be running that subwoofer at 2 ohms. Correct? So does that rule apply for class d mono...

    I have a Kicker Cvr 12" 4 ohm, wired to a kenwood 600 watt amp but ever since I've had the sub I've tried wiring it down to a 2 ohm load, every time I try to, it begins to do a "heart beat" distortion and end up wiring it back in a series, 8 ohm load. This sub was brand new and is only 2-3...

    Amp suggestions

    So, i have a RE Audio SXD418. Wired to 2 ohms. RMS on the sub is about 1000w. I just fried my RF 1000.1bd so now, looking for an amp that can push 1000 watts rms @ 2 ohms. Money is an issue right now, so preferably cheap. I was actually looking at the HIFONICS HFi1500D. Any other suggestions?
