    Default (Newb Q) What amp do I need to match my sub?

    I have one MM2084DVC 8" sub

    What do I need to push this little guy to get the best results?

    Here are the specs of the sub:
    Nominal Impedance Dual 4 ohms
    Minimum Impedance Dual 3.25 ohms
    Power Handling (continuous) 200 w
    Power Handling (peak) 400 w

    I Know absolutely nothing when it comes to audio so I need to know what specs to look for in an amp.
    The dual 4 ohm voice coil thing is throwing me off cuz i read that it pulls 2 ohms from the amp... whatever that means.
    Thanks in advance.

    Youll need to find a mono amp that makes 200-300 watts RMS at 2 ohms mono. Check Crutchfield.com. They have a pretty big selection.
