    Question about ohm load on different subs (Not the Normal Questions)

    I had a custom built box by mobile enclosures that is for two Creadence SQ10's(same as L7) and the box is perfect. Also the box is ported and subs share the same airspace. I am running a RF T-1500bdcp for power. Heres my issue. When I went to install my subs I realized I have a D2 and a D4 10's! I thought they were both D2's.

    I know I can wire the box a couple different ways (series or series parallel) Whatever the final ohm load is, will the subs actually get equal power? Does the power somehow split up through the internal box/sub wiring?

    I don't want the subs fighting each other and I feel since they are not matched they will not see equal power but please let me know how it really works.
