It all depends on what amp you run. Some amps are only 2 ohm stable so it would be best to go with either a dual 4 ohm or dual 1 ohm sub. If you are getting an amp that is 1 ohm stable, it is best to get a dual 2 ohm sub to get the full potential out of the amp. Send me a private message and I can help you more with any questions you might have.

i bought the dual 4 ohm. and have been looking for a mono amp. and came across this on. the sub is dual 4 ohm, 800w max 400 rms. how would this amp work with it? sobe3yourself im not sure if you got the pm's or not

I did, I just replied to your pm's. That would actually be a bit better than the Pioneer you asked about. That amp is only 2 ohm stable so you could get either a dual 1 ohm or dual 4 ohm sub. I would go with this over the Pioneer, I never really liked pioneer amps and I have NEVER had any problems with the (over 20) RF amps I have owned.

that amp will work well with the sub you have, just wire up up as a mono 2 ohm, you could get a more powerful amp tho so it wont have to work so hard.

wiring:
amp + -
1st sub terminals + -
2nd set + -


hope you undertsand that......run both positives together and both negs together, when i did my probe with that same set up i used one piece or speaker wire (2 wires +/_) to feed bith positive sub terminals and shortened the one side to fit tighter and did the same on the negative side
