    I'm confused and I don't want to sound like an idiot here.

    But I have a rockford 400s and it puts out
    100 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms
    200 watts RMS x 2 at 2 ohms
    400 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms in bridged mode

    I also have a w6v2 @ 4 ohms but it has dvc

    I was told that when you connect the two voice coils, you get 2 ohm. The amp is 4 ohms when in bridged mode. Am I right? I would need to get a new amp? Or am I wrong? Is it 4 ohms with the dvc and I'm all right?

    First, I need to know if the 4ohms is per voice coil or for both coils in series or parallel.

    Most likely though, it sounds like it is a dual 4ohm voice coil, which means you can wire it in series and achive a 8ohm load, or 2ohms when wired in parallel.

    2ohms is too low an impedence to run safely on that amplifier, and 8ohms wont produce maximum power...
