right now i have a 12 in the backseat of my ex cab silverado, its behind the drivers seat on the backseat facing the passenger side of the truck, if i get another 12 and build the same box and put it on the passenger backseat facing the drivers side would the two subs cancel each other?

ok i must be retarded or somethin cuz i cant figure out how to do this, im trying to wire two infinity reference series subs (4 ohm) to the amp to get a 2 ohm load. ive seen the pictures and diagrams but its confusing me on the amp, it looks like the amp is just a mono amp and mine is a two channel amp so thats where im stuck on.

yeah u are slow j/k

just do as the diagram says I mean put one speaker + to the other speakers + then put then run the neagtive one like u did the postive.Then there should be 2 terminal left on one of the speakers.Run the other postive and nigatives to the amp.

now there not dual voice coils so if i run the negative to other subs negative and the positve to the other subs positive then i cant plug any into the amp


{edit}

ok i might get it take 1 speaker wire put one half on the + side of the subs and plug that into the + side of the right and left channel of the amp, same for with the -, but if i do that doesnt that make my amp not bridged anymore?

Ok what you can do is wire the subs first, then worry about the amp.

Wire the + on one sub to the + on the other, and wire the - on one sub to the - on the other. Now get a seperate speaker wire and connect the + of it to one sub's +, and the - of it to the SAME sub's -. You should now have a + and a - on the opposite end that are not connected to anything.

This is what you are going to use to plug into the amp. Now if the amp is 2 ohm BRIDGED STABLE then you can hook up the + to the + on the amp for bridging and the - to the - on the amp for bridging. If it isn't 2 ohm bridged stable, then you have to hook the + to the + on one channel and the - to the - of the SAME channel. This will only give you 1/2 the power of the amp though.

Hope that helps.

ok i think i get it know

"Wire the + on one sub to the + on the other, and wire the - on one sub to the - on the other. Now get a seperate speaker wire and connect the + of it to one sub's +, and the - of it to the SAME sub's -. You should now have a + and a - on the opposite end that are not connected to anything."

so im puttin two wires into one plug on the sub?
