http://www.avsforum.com/photopost/da...hmDVC_4ohm.gif This would give a 4 ohm draw.

You could also wire them for a 2 or a 1 ohm draw. You want to wire them to get the best performance from your amp. Many amps are not stable at 1 ohm. What amp will you be using and what is the RMS of the subwoofers?

OK so you will need to put 600W to them. With 2 4ohm dual vc subs 2ohm is not an option. You need to choose between 4 or 1 ohm. An amp for 4ohm draw is very doable. This one would do fine. > https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item...CE2600.1D.html

You haven't said anything about the rest of your system so I've just answered what you asked. I'm a bit concerned though that some of the unasked questions may be just as important. For example if you have or want component front speakers you might be better off with a multichannel amp to run but the fronts and the subs. If you like to get some advice about that please list your car make and model, your current head unit, speakers, amps etc.

It's cheaper to get an amp that does rated at 1 ohm than 4 ohm.
