got my 12" kicker cvr!!

hey guys, i`m working on buying my second system and just bought a 12" kicker 07cvr122.

its a DVC 2 ohm.

my only problem is i dont understand how to hook all that stuff up haha. i had some old pioneer free airs before and it was just + to + and - to -.

can i wire this sub differently to get 4 ohm or 2 ohm or how do i go abouts looking for an amp?im totally lost!please help!!(ive read definitions of ohms and impediance etc but still, nothing....please help

i havent found an amp, thats where i`m confused, i dont know what to look for.
i know my sub is 400 rms, so i should find an amp thats around there.
but they all have different ratings for different ohms

can someone explain ohms to me simple?

well your sub is a dual 2Ohm, so you can either wire it to 1Ohm (series) or 4Ohm (parallel) so you'll want an amp that has about 600 watts RMS @ 4Ohm, or one thats 1Ohm stable (no sense really)

thanks, i dont understand that series or parrallel thing though aha.

i will keep my eye open for a 4 ohm amp

i also dont understand why i should get 600 rms for a 400 watt sub?

I like a little headroom, 400 rms will be fine

I have a Premier PRS-x320 that does about 450RMS at 4Ohm, new for 175 if you want to make the drive.
