but it will consume double the power at 2ohm, so unneccesary drain on the battery.

i'd say if it's a class AB amp, get 2 ohm
if it's class D get 4ohm
i have a 1ohm stable amp, so i got 2ohm and running them in parallel
That just adds more questions for me...
My concern is with 'sound' i want the best bang for the buck.

- are the oe underseat subs wired direct or parralel?

- what wiring setup will yield the punchiest, deeper bass -- parralel or 2-ch direct?

- is there a class AB amp that compares to the d-class amps' physical lightness, compact structure for my 'underseat sub replacement only' setup?

- would i hear or feel an audible difference if i upgraded the underseat subs between a d-class 4ohm and an AB class amp?

Thanks ahead for your time.
