 WILL I FRY MY AMP?

I HAVE 3 JLW6 12'S THAT ARE 6 OHMS. I WAS RUNNING THE BOX AT 4OHMS. I AM USING AN OLD SCHOOL PHOENIX GOLD M100 AND IT WAS LOUD. MY BUDDY TOLD ME TO REWIRE MY SUBS SO THEY ARE RUNNING AT 1 OHM. WILL THIS MAKE IT LOUDER AND IF SO CAN THIS AMP HANDLE 1 OHM OR IS IT GOING TO FRY?

It will burn up your amp quickly if your amp is not designed to run at 1 ohm mono. Most amps run at 4 ohm mono. There are some that run at 2 ohm mono. I will check the specs of that amp and let you know.

I just checked and that amp will only do 2 ohm mono. If you run it at 1 ohm it will burn it up.

I am running 4 12" Hollywood Edges with a USAMP 2000. Which is a 2000 watt RMS amp at 2 ohms at 12.5 volts. It actually puts out more than that at 14.4 volts. With absolutely no distortion. I am also running a MTX line driver that brings the signal level going into the amp to 10 volts. I have heard from alot of people that it is the loudest system and cleanest system they have heard. Most systems they hear are either distorted or not very loud. I have all this in a 83 full size Blazer. The highest I have hit so far is 151db. Trying to go higher this year.
