You can but it will sound like ass. Best bet would e to get a good amp and run it at 2ohms.

2012 Chevy sonic 1xSQ HDC3 12 D2 RF R1200d

140 square foot of Q-Mat(soon to be installed)

140.2Db sealed on the dash with TL

142 DB sealed on the dash with another meter (was dead on with the TL at a show i was at)

141 on music.

bridging the amp to 2 ohms? you'll probably smoke the amp.


it has a 30 amp fuse. so its good for like 150x2 at 2 ohms. or 300x1 at 4 ohms.

Invest in something a little more decent than dual if you actually want to give some good power to the sub

Straight from the owners manual.google is your friend.

Speaker Connections
Connect speaker wires observing polarity. The minimum impedance load for the XPR520 is 2 ohms stereo and 4 ohms bridged. Use of loads lower than these is not recommended and may cause amplifier damage. The XPR520 can be wired for stereo, bridged or stereo/bridged simultaneous operation.

That being said a lot of people's definition of "music" is a clipped 30 hz sine wave with some 80 IQ knuckle head grunting about committing crimes and his genitals.
