i have an amp that does the following....and i only want to run one 10 in sub (trying to save as much trunk space as possible)

400 Watts X 1 Channel @ 4 Ohms
700 Watts X 1 Channel @ 2 Ohms
1200 Watts X 1 Channel @ 1 Ohm

can someone be kind enough to tell me which sub configurations are applicable to each amp configuration? for example, i know to run my amp at 400 Watts x 1 @ 4 ohms, i will need a dual 2 ohm sub. what kind of sub ohm config will i need for 700 Watts X 1 Channel @ 2 Ohms and 1200 Watts X 1 Channel @ 1 Ohm . i had this amp sittin in my closet, i figure i might as well use it and save some money.....can anyone lay the smack down for me?:D

Dual 4 ohm sub wired in parallel will give you 2 ohm load to produce your 700 watts
thanks for the reply ron....i was wondering if i could run a 10w7 off the amp that i have...its an Autotek SX-1700 (try not to laugh) would this work??
