Mono amp sub wiring question...

473 4
I read through the ohm laws in the sticky and still have a quick question.

I was always under the impression that if you had a mono block sub amp, let’s say 1000w at 1ohm you could wire 2 subs to it and depending on the way you wire it, each sub would receive the 1000w. I know that this would also be dependent on the number of voice coils and the ohm stability of each, so I guess my main question is, can you wire 2 subs to one amp and have each of those subs receive the max wattage the amp is capable of putting out? If this is a possibility, can someone please setup a scenario or two where this would be possible. Thanks!

2 dual voice coil 4 ohm woofers wired down to 1 ohm mono would get 500W each.
Cool, thanks for the feedback.

So, if you have 2 subs, ohms and voice coils aside, is there anyway to get the full wattage from a monoblock amp to each of the subs? Or no matter how they are wired (parallel, series, etc) will each sub still only get half of the amps total wattage at most? Thanks again, and sorry for the redundant questions, just want to be clear.
