500 watts x 2  is about 100 amps max in a pulse type draw so should be just fine

and an amp for the highs  around 30 watt draw   again not constant 

my old taco does this on a cheap battery

wire it up and tell us when your thumpin!!

You cant' wire 2 ohm DVC sub to 2 ohms. either 1 or 4.

So now I’m confused, I thought if the sub was 2ohms that was the load it put on the amp

If the sub is 2ohm dvc, that means it is a dual voice coil sub, with coils that are 2ohm each. In order to properly use the funcionality of this subwoofer with two voice coils, you wire the voice coils so they both receive power from the amp, which in your case, is going to be one of two ways.Screenshot_20190128-235924_Chrome.thumb.jpg.ffb90b08c22ede01353804281ebf2a1e.jpg

Ok thanks for clearing that up,I now realize I’m only pushing 300 watts to each sub with the mrv m-500 which sucks because I bought 2 of them.any suggestions on a correct amp? They are wired to 4 ohm load like the diagram reedal posted,and they are 450 rms

If you have two 2ohm dvc subs, then your wiring options for a single amp are 20190129_094925.thumb.jpg.5a5d1199bbfee929824f40bd1f5aae8c.jpg20190129_094943.thumb.jpg.1028d89993fa4292f5e357ae6bd221b7.jpg20190129_094952.thumb.jpg.a85d5105885a8b69601e775cb4d30d50.jpg

you could always buy a second matching amp, gain match the amps, and wire one sub to each amp.
