Kicker makes nice stuff. Depends on your budget, if you can budget a better amp, go for it, if you can't, then leave it.

How do you have them wired now?
You can do 4ohm DVC at 2ohm load, but that is just one sub, if you did 2 of those, it would bring the resistance down to 1ohm. You could do 1 VC from each sub into 2ohms, but then you wouldn't be using both subs full potential.

what is the model number of your amp?

say A is positive and B is negative on 1 4 ohm sub that makes 2 ohm load
what if at the amp terminals u put 2 A's and 2 B's will this result in 1 ohm or double 2 ohm?
