    I have 2 Kicker Comp VR 12's, they're the 4Ohm DVC model. I was thinking about using a RF 800.2 to power them, inless anyone has any other suggestions. Question is, if using the 800.2 how will I wire them up, thanks.

    Hmm, so each speaker has 2 4ohm voice coils, correct? If so, you run each voice coil in parallel with each other and connect each speaker to the right or left channel. Each channel should then be seeing a 2ohm load, which should be fine for that amp.

    OR, you could wire each voice coil in series which would give you a net 8ohm load per spaker and then wire the two speakers in parallel giving you a 4ohm mono load. Or you could do it vise versa and wire each voice coil per speaker in parallel, and then the speakers in series.

    Just dont wire everything in parallel and then hook it up to that amp. At that low of an impedence, Mr. happy smoke will probably come free at any time, which is not good! :)
