    This may be a dumb question, but is there any way to wire a dual 2ohm voice coil sub for a 2ohm load? I know I can go series and parallel for 4 and 1 ohm loads, but my amp is only stable down to 2.

    It's a mrp-m350, 200w @ 4ohm or 350w @ 2ohm.

    Or should i just wire it for 4 and be done with it?

    Wire to 4 or get another D2 sub if you have the space for it and really want to use the amp to its full potential. Or sell that D2 and buy a D4.

    yea I was kinda thinking that. Would I notice much of a diff going to a d4 and wiring it for 2ohm as opposed to using the d2 @ 4 ohm?

    almost twice the power. will definitely hit harder, and be a little bit louder

    Double power = 3dB increase in theory. 3dB is just a tad bit noticeable.

    I think it'll be fine wired up as a 4ohm load. I was given this setup, so if it makes noise the way it's wired, I'm not about to spend a whole lot of money on it :bigthumb:
