I have a 2 Ohm Kicker CVR10. It says if I wire the voice coils in series I will get 4 Ohm, and if I wire it in parallel it will give 1 ohm. I don't know what to do. I know nothing about this. I want whatever will give me the loudest and most noticeable sound. its 600W max, 300 RMS. I want to do this as an amp:

so I don't know how I'm supposed to wire the sub for best preformance. If that amp won't work very well for that, what should I use?

You need to pick a different amp, that one won't do on that single sub...

what do you recommend?  Also what really is the diffrence?  Obviously I get more watts out of a lower number of ohms, but why would someone want a higher number?
You need an amp that makes the power you need for that sub at either 4ohms mono or 1ohm mono...

but which would give me the best sound, the 1 ohm or 4 ohm, or does it not matter?  Plus i've never seen an amp rated for 1 ohm.
No, it will not matter as long as the required power is made at that particular ohm load...

Most class D amps are 1ohm stable, not all, but most, it's quite common...
