I have 12" 4 Ohm subs..

I dont quite understand you.

How many subs do you have? What kind of VC's?

If you meant you have 12 4 ohms speakers, i THINK you can wire two speakers together in series(so 6 pairs of speakers wired in series), then wire them all to the amp. I THINK that produces a 1.33 ohm load, i'm not sure though.

series them into pairs, that gives you 6 8 ohm loads

parallel them into quads, that gives you 3 4 ohm loads

parallel the 3 quads, that gives you 1 1.333 ohm load

Yup 1.33 ohms it is. Should pound pretty hard with 12 10's and about 2kw //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif

Good luck with it man.
