    A single audiopipe 3k would suit ya. Cheap, and good for your ohm load.

    Take 2 subs, put all the + together, and all the - together, and put it in the left channel of the amp....then take the other 2 subs, do the same and put it in the right channel. Done.

    The amp is 2 boards in 1, hence why you can run 2 ohms bridged or 1 ohm to each side. Easy to do 1 to each side. It will also have the power you need. Plus they are cheap to buy for the power ya get.

    the ap3k is actually a 2 channel (or more correctly 2 amps in one case) so wiring like mentioned above will put each of the amps inside at a 1 ohm load which is what they are built for.

    my bet is that he was thinking the 3k is like most sub amps with 2 sets of terminals that are in parallel with each other.
