I just bought a pair of fosgate P2s and it came with a cer2600d boss amp. I am wondering if 1. the amp will work and 2. whats the best ohm i should run it at? i researched and came across this for the amp (488 W X 1 RMS @ 4 ohm). does that mean both will run at 488W rms or will 488W rms be split between the two (as in 244 x 244)?
 
If you hook 2 woofers to a mono amp then the power is split between each speaker (244 and 244).
Since the dvc woofers are rated for 400 watts rms each you want the amp to produce as close to 800wrms as possible (975wrms at 2 ohms) to get the maximum output from the woofers.
You can hook the voice coils of each speaker in series (making each 4 ohms) and then connect each speaker in parallel to get a 2ohm load to the amp.
That will get a a bit more power than the speakers are rated for so don't go crazy.

thanks bro I've been waiting for a clear answer! I have also heard you SHOULD have your amps RMS 75%-150% of your woofers and they will be fine. If I take 150% of each woofer RMS it equals 1050 so do you think (if I can even do it) connect the amp as a 1 ohm so each sub pushes 975. Do you think this too much?
