I am looking at purchasing a Kicker kx600.1 which is rated 600x1@2ohms and is 2ohms stable. Now I am looking at purchasing an eclipse SW8102DVC.

Heres the info on it;
Santoprene Surround
Aluminum Cone
Dual Mirror-Image Spiders
Aluminum Voice Coil Former
"Bottomless" Design
Aero-Vented Pole Piece
Cast Aluminum Frame
Double-Stacked Magnet
Small Sealed-Box Enclosure
Continuous Power Handling: 500W
Music Power Handling: 1,000W

Since it is a dual voice coil sub, is there a way to wire it so my amp is pushing the 600x1@2ohms? Thanks for the help.

Yes. You didn't say that its a 4 ohm DVC, but Eclipse has a lovefest with 4 ohm coils, and thats all they make. The sub is 4+4, so you can get a 2 ohm load from it.

You want to wire it like the first diagram from here:

Great! Thanks for the help. Sorry I didnt mention it was a 4 ohm DVC, my mistake. I saved that page to my favorites for future reference. Thanks!
