I have a 195rms@4ohm / 390max@4ohm amp (MONO).
225rms@4ohms / 400max@4ohms Dual voice coil sub.

I'm going to run the dual voice coil in parallel (+ to + and - to -) connecting the + from the amp to one coil and the - from the amp to the opposite coil. The ohm's is going to drop to 2.
Therefor my amp will put out 265rms@2ohms. I'm confused by what is going to happen to my sub. Is the amp power of 265rms@2ohms going to be divided into 2 so each coil gets equal power and the 225rms@4ohms is on each coil. And does the rms of my sub increase because of the decrease in ohms?

Each VC will get half the watts.

The RMS on your sub is a rating telling you how many watts RMS to feed it. It doesn't change no matter how you wire it.
