Your amp does

150x2 at 4 ohms stereo
300x2 at 2 ohms stereo
600x1 at 4 ohms mono

The most you can get out of this amp is 300 watts wiring the sub at 2 ohms.
so my sub cant be wired parallel or in a series with my amp?

Yes. In parallel at 2 ohms in 1 channel for 300 watts, or in series for 8 ohms 2 channels bridged for 300 watts. Doesn't really matter.

well here is a simple explanation...
Ohms is electrical resistance, usually from wire and/or connectors...

as for wiring stuff... you should take a look at this... it basically works for subwoofers and speakers... http://www.crutchfieldadvisor.com/IS...rs_wiring.html

Hey I noticed on the Kickers they have a primary VC.

I can work out my resultant resistance easy enough, just want to know where the above comes into the equations. or does it not matter at all?

I am new to these forums and have been into audio and sound systems for quite sometime but now I have finally started working on my car stereo.

I have two svc 8-ohm subs, two dvc 4-ohm subs, and one svc-4 ohm sub. I know that is an odd arrangement but its what I got. My amp can run at half an ohm stable and thats what I would like it to be. My amp is also two channel but I would like it bridged. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
Chris

If those are different subwoofer brands/models, then it sounds like the perfect combination for a crappy sounding system.

I'd highly recommend starting a new thread, detailing the brand/model of each piece of equipment you have so that we can help you put together the best performing setup.

DVC 3 ohms = 1.5 ohm load
DVC 3 ohms = 6 ohm load

DVC 4 ohms = 2 ohm load
DVC 4 ohms = 8 ohm load

DVC 6 ohms = 3 ohm load

DVC 8 ohms = 4 ohm load

Dual subs
Dual Voice Coil
2 ohms = .5 ohm load
2 ohms = 2 ohm load
2 ohms = 8 ohm load

3 ohms = .75 ohm load
3 ohms = 3 ohm load

4 ohms = 1 ohm load
4 ohms = 4 ohm load
