    okay well i have a slight delima here, i have a audiobahn aw1251se which has dual 4ohm voice coils. well i wanted to get a kenwood kac 7202 amp which has the following specs:

    two-channel car amplifier
    150 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms (230 watts x 2 at 2 ohms)
    460 watts RMS x 1 bridged output at 4 ohms (4 ohm stable in bridged mode)
    high-pass (12 dB per octave) and low-pass (24 dB per octave) filters variable from 50 to 200 Hz
    selectable bass boost (0-18 dB at 40 Hz)
    cooling fan
    MOSFET power supply
    CEA-2006 compliant
    preamp- and speaker-level inputs
    preamp outputs
    Tri-way capable (Tri-Way Crossover required)
    requires 4-gauge power and ground leads — wiring and hardware not included with amplifier
    13-5/8"W x 2-5/16"H x 11-1/4"D

    would i be able to hook that up to a audiobahn sub with dual 4 ohm voice coils, because since im using a single subwoofer i cant find a way to lower the impedience to 4ohms, which the amp is rated at. i can either get the impedience to either 2ohms or 8 ohms which isnt exactly 4.

    does any one have any information on this? i emailed kenwood but havent recieved an answer and i cant seem to find it online, due to the massive amounts of audio websites.

    any help is great, thanks guys.

    Your best bet is this setting ------>150 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms.

    Just hook each channel to a coil. As long as you hook it up with a MONO INPUT the same power will be to each coil and it will run fine.
