Choosing the right amp

I got a good deal on four 8" DVC Alpine Type-Rs (swr-823d) at a yard sale. They came with a Nitro Audio amp (which I was told was garbage) and a Hifonics 1500w.

All the subs work, but I was told if I wanted to use all four subs with the Hifonics amp they would only be getting 250w each. But I think he thought they were 4 ohms, the website says they have dual 2-ohm VCs, so if I wired them like this:, would it be running in 1 ohm (1500w) or 2 ohm(1000w)?

Should I just get a different amp?

Yes, exactly like the diagram... given the rated power of the amp, each sub will get more than enough power. I've owned all the equipment you list, except the nitro, they are good and reliable.

I've owned a Hifonic amplifier for 8 years. Very satisfied with it.
