That would only give you 200 watts on that sub. My honest suggestion, either sell the sub, and get a 2ohm version, or upgrade the amp to a mono amp. I would take the second option, and that way you could give that sub some more juice to make it roar. You can get Hifonics mono amps on SoundDomain.com for a great price, here is the link:

Or this US Acoustics amp:

Both are stable into 2 ohms, and will get your sub going nicely. Sounddomain is a trusted and respected name, and they are authorized dealers of all they carry, so you dont need to worry about warranty issues! I recommend them.

Default Here's a related question

Hi all...first post. Great forum!

I'm planning on running 4 mb quart rce 216 components (6.5 and tweet- 4 ohm) and 2 dvc mb quart 12's (2 ohm) off of my soundstream vga 800.5

I assume I should have no trouble running channels 1-4 at 4 ohms and channel 5 at 2 ohms?

Check your amp's specs. If you can run it that way then yes, no probs. Usually multi channel amps have no problem with running in separate modes like that.
