    *help* With Amp And Sub Connection

    I have 2 JL Audio W3's and a JL 500/1 (mono amp). I was wondering what kind of setup would make the best performance? I kind of understand parallel-parrellel, but not quite sure?

    Do you have the 2,4, or 6 ohm?

    JL500/1
    Rated Power:
    500 W RMS @ 1.5 ohm-4 ohm


    If you have the 2 ohm your gonna have to wire it in series, other than that you should be fine wiring in parallel. It should be a good match.

    Im pretty sure they are 4 ohm subs. If you run them parallel it will be a 2 ohm impedence load on the amp. Seeing as it is a mono block amp it should work perfect. Set the gain btween 1/2 and 3/4 for good clean power.
