I've got a question about powering DVC subs. Now for example: if I send 150 watts to both coils will that perform the same as sending 300 watts to one coil?

I'm assuming you are asking if sending 150 watts to each voice coil on a dual voice coil sub will perform the same as sending 300 watts to a single voice coil sub?

I hope you are not asking if it would be the same as sending 300 watts to one voice coil on a dual voice coil sub. :)

Why? you can't power only one coil on a dvc sub.

no you must power both coils. the main reason for dual voice coils is so you can change the ohm rating. lets say you buy 2 subs, single voice coil, rated at 4 ohms, when you hook them together it presents 8 ohm rating, or 4 ohms each. if you buy dual 4 ohm voice coils you can wire the subs in paralelle(brain fart, I can't think of how to spell it right) it will give off 2 ohms each sub or if they are wired together it will present a 4 ohm load. hope this helps you.
