Ok so the amp puts out:

50watts @ 4 x 2
100watts @ 2 x 2
200watts @ 4 x 1

My sub is a dual 2 ohm VC config.

So with a mono input on both the L/R channels would you:

-Run 1 VC to each channel
-Series the VC's to get 4ohm, and run a bridged load on the amp


Same wattage... but I would imagine the THD would increase bridging the amp.. but is the power more uniform to the sub?

The reason is a uniformed load across the coils.

increase in THD is ussualy not enough to worry about. .01% stereo compared to .05% bridged. maybe less. you are going to get the sum of both channel THD since, you are using both channels with one inverted.

x2...exactly.....really not much to think about here....just keep the load with in the design parameters of the amp

plus it's easier to wire
