Wiring Three 4ohm DVC Subs?

I have a 1500w Class D Hifonics Brutus amp. I can't find much information on it, does anyone know what this amp is stable to run at? I heard 0.75 ohm but...I don't want to go on just hearing from a friend.

This in mind, how can I wire 3 4ohm DVC subs to get the lowest ohms? Or, what are the possible ohms I can achieve with this setup?

that amp will kill you if you try and play it below 1 ohm

You can wire those 3 to .67 / 2.67 / 6ohm

Wire them like mine. Connect the negative of VC1 (voice coil) to the positive of VC2 on all three subs (also known as series). Then run the positive from your amp to all the VC1 positives and the negative from the amp to all the VC2 negatives (parallel). That will give 2.67 ohm load.

i burped my hifonics bxi 2006D once at 0.5ohm and nothing happend.

i highly doubt if your careful with the gain and volume **** that its gonna go up in smoke before it goes into protect

key word bump, they wont take it daily, nor would I even think it would last a few rounds burping. The 2608 I had SUCKED as far as reliability went

Well, before reading this thread, I just had my system going wired to 0.6 ohm as you guys said with no problems. I checked the amp and felt no excess heat, if that's any indicator.
