    Do you have a crossover, EQ or LFE? If not, you need to combine the signal coming from L+R prior to amplification. Then set the amp to 2 ohms.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    i do have a LPF switch on my amp which is turned down to 60 htz. but can i do that. just hook up the postive and negative to one voice coil to one channel and the other one to the other channel. if so would that make it a 2 ohm load.
