Which setup is louder?

Hey Guys. I got a Kicker 12L7 Dual 4 ohm and a Rockford 801S

http://www.carreview.com/cat/car-aud...0_1806crx.aspx

Right now I have it bridged to one voice coil and its not loud at all.

I was wondering if i put both voice coils in parallel (2 ohm output) and the just put it to one channel of the amp would it be louder? Its in a vented box right now. Thanks in advance.

i'm guessing you have it wired to 8 ohms and have the amp bridged? if you do then no, it won't make a difference as the sub will still be getting 400 watts regardless. my suggestion is to get a sub that is a d2 configuration so then you can bridge your amp and the most out of it.

I'm only wiring it to one voice coil... so its 4 ohm... then bridged at the amp. So one voice coil is getting 800 rms.

umm sir you need to wire both, it requires both voice coils to get the full potential. either buy a new amp or buy a new sub. no way around it.

specs on the amp?
and yes, wiring only one voicecoil is like only using half of your engines power....... wire both coils down to 2ohm if your amp is stable @ 2ohms

You need to wire it in series to 8 ohms and bridge the amp. You'll only get half of the 800 watts, but you're limited to with that setup since the amp can't be bridged at 2 ohms. With 800 going to one coil, I'm surprised it hasn't blown.
