I personally recommend DVC (dual voice-coil (I think all L5's are), dual 2 so your amp will feed 2 ohm to each), and then hook up one channel to one voice coil and the the other channel to the other voice-coil. This way it will be an easy hook up and your sub will be getting a 2 ohm load from the amp, that way you can put out maximum RMS power of 500 watts, your sub will need every watt of it.

2ohm stereo power = 4ohm mono power (500watts)
a single coil sub 4ohm would have been less wiring...

That's true, but I don't believe an L5 15 comes in Single Voice Coil.

By the way Racer Raul, nice stereo setup there, I see you're going to be going with an Alpine Type-X sub here soon. Very Very good choice. What size are you going with. I have a 12" in my Durango, but I also have a 10" here at my house that is brand new, only opened to inspect for damages. I was originally going to get a truck and was going to use the 10 in it to save space over the 12. I ended up getting the Durango, and decided I wanted the 12. Because the Type-X sub is a special order item and most stereo shops (at least the ones in my area) don't carry that kind of thing in stock so they would not take it back.

I would like to sell it, maybe you're interested. I'm going to lose money on it, but at this point, that is ok, I just don't want to take a huge hit. Any reasonable offers are accepted. I live in Oregon, if you give me your zip code, I can check on shipping costs.

Edit: I PM'd you, check your inbox
