    I have three DVC 4ohm kicker L5's going to a kicker 1200.1 amp. I was looking on the kicker web site and it said I could wire it parallel to get a 2ohm load or in series to get a 8 ohm load. Just wondering what I should do or which would be louder, just don't wanna wire them wrong and blow either the amp or subs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    2 important things to note. First, wiring in series or parallel will not result in any more power or volume. Second, wiring 3 subwoofers on one amp is not really feasible. It will result in non-standard impedances and while it may work, it's going to produce unpredicatable results, uneven power distribution, and quite possibly failure of either the amps, or any number of the subs. Always wire either in singles or pairs to a single amp.
