  • Sell one of them and get a duplicate of the other, or:

    Run each one off it's own amp.

    Essentially, you are in the same situation as this thread.

    Hope This Helps!!!

  • hmm dang.

    well i have another 2 channel amp.

    would i wire the 4 ohm sub to 2 ohm then hook it to one channe.

    then wire the 2 ohm sub to 4ohm then hook it to the other channel

  • If you have only one 2-channel amp, then yes, you can do that, but depending on the amp, you will likely be sending 300W RMS to one of the subs and 200W to the other sub and you can't set the gain between channels separately, so the DVC-4-ohm sub is always going to hit harder/be louder.

    If you have two 2-channel amps, then you probably would want to bridge the amps and run the DVC-4-ohm sub at 8-ohms and the DVC-2-ohm sub at 4-ohms, but it depends on what your amps can handle.

    Hope This Helps!!!
