hi steve!


thanks for the reply


tech specs say 2 ohms impedance

Ok, what brand is the amp - sorry I should have asked.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

amp brand is boss, sub brand is pioneer

Yes, that amp will like the 2 ohm load. You should have no problem using that sub with that amp.

Good luck.
