Alright so, I have my set up ran at 1ohm. getting a bigger and lower hitting sub. and i want to run it at 1ohm.

My setup now is 2 10's. DVC 4ohm. wired at 1ohm. dual crossovers.

can you do this with 1 sub??
I looked at these set ups. there so plain and blah.

OR would a SVC be better to run at 1ohm. or maybe a SVC 2ohm?

Like this im guessing.

1=positive right.
2=negative right.
3=positive left.
4=negative left.

just wire.

1 ohm is preety cool to have on tap.If your amp can do it then i would wire it to 1 ohm.

If you want 1 SUB = dvc 2ohm sub is your weapon of choice then.

This is your setup ATM(pic Below). As you know by the wirring wizard you posted , if you use one of your existing 4ohm DVC subs then you will have a 2 ohm load.

Yeah just dont get confussed.. amps are presented the load by the subs, the AMP needs to handle the load. Hooking a 2ohm load to a 1ohm stable amp doesnt make it a 1ohm system, its a 2ohm system because the subs coils are what determines the loads.

SVC 2ohm can on present 2ohm load to the amp.
A pair of DVC 4ohm can present a 16ohm (everything series), 4ohm (parallel coils, series subs), or 1ohm load (parallel everything).
