Default Car audio Ohms?

Different subs have different ohm levels right? So if a sub is a dual 2ohm sub then is it a 1ohm sub or a 2ohm? Similarily with a dual 4ohm. I need to know the difference, because I want to know how much my amp is producing to my sub! Thanks!

if you have 1 sub and both coils are running on one channel then If they're dual 2's, they could be 1ohm or 4ohm. if they're dual 4's then they could be 2ohm or 8ohm. depends if you run them in series or parallel.

i thought you knew this stuff?
