Im not sure if i can explain this right. ohms are the resistance. The lower the ohm level the less resistance so more power can travel through. If you hook up the 2ohm sub to the amp it will usually be getting about half of what the amp is rated to do.

If you lower your Ohms you make your equipment work hard and produce more power...

For example:

an amp that produces 100 watts @ 4 Ohms can produce 200 watts @ 2 Ohms... And 400 watts at 1 Ohm... and 800 watts @ .5 Ohm...

U.S. Amps used to make a series of amps that would go to 0.1 Ohms... That's like running 32 subs on 2 channels!!! :cool:

That was pretty good.
