I have a Skar Audio RP-2000.1D 2000 watt mono block amp. I have it run to 2 Skar Audio EVL-15 D2 15-inch dual 2-ohm 1250 watt subwoofers. The only way to wire them to this amp is at 2 ohm or 0.5 ohm and the amp it rated at 2000 watts at 1 ohm. At 2 ohm im only getting about 1400 watts so about 700 watts each. My question is can i wire them up at 0.5 ohm and turn the gain down to 2000 watts and run it that way without hurting the amp? I know the equations for tuning the gain to match my subs. I dont want to do that tho i just want to run the amp at its rated 2000 watts or more specifically 2300 watts because that's what it dyno tests at 1 ohm.

You can try it. If the amp has the correct over current protection and it works then the amp will just shut down.
Really you just run them at 2 ohms. Or just give 1 the 2300.
I bet you don't have a power wire that is capable of 300 amps.
That's about what you'll be drawing at .5 ohms.

Either buy D4 subs, or buy an amp that is rated at .5 ohms. If it was .5ohm stable they would have rated it as such.

You would likely have to turn it down to significantly less than 2000 watts to keep the output current below its maximum. About 1100 watts would produce the correct amperage at 0.5 ohms, so you'd be better off running at 2 ohms.
