Need help with new sub

My old MA audio sub has died but i got about 10 years out of it . THe amp is still working fine . I want to replace the speaker

The amp is a MA audio m180i and i can't find much info on it . one guy is selling one on ebay and he only listed this info .

M180i 2 Channel 180w x 2 RMS 400 x 1 RMS bridged ... it says this at the top then it also says

MA Audio 180 watt 2-Channel M180i 400W Max 2 Ohm Stable. Bridgeable

here is a link to it

based on the power output i found some subs that handle 400 watts rms max and 800 peak. on crutchfield

this speaker is available with dual 2 ohm voice coils or 4 ohm which one do i get? is there anything weird with wiring them? I'm thinking just one negative one positive. take it off my old speaker and onto the new. is there any more to it with dual voice coil if there is only one speaker?

do you guys think it will hit hard ? My ma sub when i got it was rediculously loud especialy for a 10"

That amp will do 400wX1 into 4ohm or 200wx2 into 2ohm.

Your common coil options are Dual 2ohm, Single 4ohm, or Dual 8ohm.

Look for a sub in the 300-400w RMS range with thoes coil options.

I decided on the infinity kappa 102.7w . its 350 watt 4 ohm and it should work perfect in my box .
