Question about Ohm Car Audio & Video
If the subs you have are 2 ohm DVCs, that usually means each voice coil is 2 ohms. Putting the DVCs in parallel will make the sub 1 ohm, which is beyond the capability of the amp (which is only stable down to 2 ohms per channel). Putting each subs DVCs in series (for a total of 4 ohms per channel) will at least allow the amp to operate properly, even though you will not be able to maximize the output power.

Halving the impedance will draw twice the current. You could technically get a 3 Db more power since the peak voltage will remain the same. BUT if the magnet structure is not intended to use that cone design, the magnet difference MAY not give you 2 ohms.
In fact, if the designed magnetic flux were smaller, you could wind up with a 1 ohm speaker.
trying to get that much power is really kind of silly as even 50 watts with efficient speakers will exceed safe levels of sound that will not cause damage to your ears.
As you push an amp up in power, usually distortion will increase as well.

First of all your ******** shouldn't be running that many watts to two 12" cvr's. I have one in the specially insulated and plastic ported box that kicker made exactly for that sub. I'm running 850 watts to it and the peak on it is only 800, and i cant even turn the amp more than half way up. So pretty much you wanted help trying to figure out what to do, well here it is get another ******* amp with less wattage and a 2 channel amp *******.
