If your subs was Dual 1 Ohms, wiring the subs like that put your subs at 2 ohms, because it's in series.
Yes it matters, lol. Do EXACTLY what the diagram says. Put a short wire leading from the + post of one voice coil to the - post on the other voice coil. This will leave you with one positive post and one negative post open on each voice coil.... hook them up to your amp accordingly. + to +, - to -. use good speaker wire for all of this....
Edit: just make sure you're doing it right this time. double check to make sure everything is perfect before hooking it up.
And make sure that they are different coils I seen 1 guy hook the + and - together on 1 coil and run the other + and - of the remaining coil to the amp and that was his idea of series lol.
"Originally Posted by Kangaroux" Bridging takes a way a lot of the SQ and it sounds extremely distorted. I believe when you bridge it it switches from a class A/B to a class D, but I"m not positive..
