Did you honestly just state that you have been installing for 10 years, and then directly following that, state that he should run one coil on a DVC Sub!!...Running only one coil cuts the power handling in half, which also cuts the woofers perfomance and output ability in half...
If you in fact read that Sticky on running one voice coil, you would know that what I just said was 100% correct...
Moreover, once again we are not attacking you, we are putting you in your place. This is one of the top forums around for get the correct advise or the perfect answer to your questions. And you were giving bad advise and stating false facts, which is why we had to jump in and let you know that you are not correct...
As for the shop I work at, you can ask anyone on here about the reputation of Superior Sound....
Whether he is right about the capabilities of Kenwood amps or not, (I personally think they are garbage, and would never recommend one to even my worst enemy, but that is not the issue here...) please, everybody chill. It is PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE to run one voice coil on a dual voice coil woofer. It has been discussed ad nauseum right here, in this very forum. Please read it. You will find that running only one voice coil does NOT reduce the power handling by 50%, but only by approximately 10-15% (although, I personally de-rate about 20%). These numbers are per Dan Wiggins of Adire Audio.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

Ok, let's all calm down.  Deep breath...good.  'pwner wasn't saying "the 9102D is the best, most powerful amp of all time!  Verily, it was built by God Himself and placed into the hands of men!", he was only saying that it would push those subs fine without breaking the bank. 

He also  never said that the 9102 and the 7202 were comparable, he said "either one of these or two of these," just offering up an opinion.  Instead of taking said opinion and going "Kenwood? Nah.", you told him he couldn't install.  Have you ever seen his work?  No?  Hmm.

As far as the single coil on a DVC, that horse is starting to stink.  Its fine to run one coil, but its not the best way to maximize your setup.
