Can you wire eight 4-ohm SVC subs to 1-ohm mono amp? If so, know where a diagram is? Pictures are just easier to visualize.

No. You will blow your amp for sure. You are gonna be asking way to much from your amp and it will blow or go into protect mode everytime.

Definitely not doubting you. I just would like an explanation so I can understand it. I'm here to learn what I can.

A sub, lets say it is 300 RMS, that means it is gonna try to achieve the full 300 watts. And if your amp can't give out enough power for all 8 of your subs then the amp is gonna start trying to draw more power from your battery...which will cause it to fry or go into protect. Its hard to explain but it won't work.

I believe you could get either a 2 ohm load or .5 ohm load with 8 subs....if they were 4 ohm DVC subs though a 1 ohm load would be possible...

oh and for the record too it does not matter how many subs you hook up to the amp....as long as you wire them properly and get the correct ohm load at the end then you are good...gotta make sure though the amp has enough rms power to provide enough power to match the specs of the sub

With the 8 twelves wired at 1-ohm it will match my amp perfectly. I just didn't know if it was possible. My amp has enough power for my plans. I am actually trying to do it as a joke. Just a huge box in the back seat. Is it possible to wire it at the .5-ohm and a resistor to bring it to the 1-ohm?

are you able to get the woofers in single 8 ohm coils? that would work out to one ohm as well....idk if the resistor idea would work honestly

Alright. The subs I was looking at are not available in 8 ohm that I have seen. I will just continue looking. Thanks for the help though. 8 ohm SVC or 4 ohm DVC. Any other options as far as getting them down to 1-ohm? Keeping 8 subs in mind...

Why not run 2 amps with 4 subs on each at 1ohm.

It can be done if you run a 2ch amp in bridge mode.

I already have the amp. I am not looking to go out and buy a whole new setup. Just replace my two powerful 10's with 8 weak 12's. Through my connections I can get the subs new for $15 a piece. It was going to be a saturday time killer and a waste of money. Still looking into exactly what I want to run. When I get around to it I will post up pics and info of the build. Thanks all for help and input.

Read everything then talk. I am building the system as a joke. This thread is not a joke. I have the amp and wondering what subs to get. Way to make yourself look like an a**. Thank you so much for your educated input.
