    Icon32 which amp out of these 2 is best? and best way to wire them

    Ive been doing my research on car audio and ive finally narrowed it down to one of these amps U.S. acoustics USX2100 or a Rockford 500s and a pair of AudioBahn 12" Performer Subs in a sealed box. what is the best way to wire my subs to my amp to make it have the deepest loudest bass without risking blowing my amp or my subs

    Also which amp would be a better choice?

    the specs on the US USX2100 Amp is:
    100Wx2CH @ 4ohms
    150Wx2CH @ 2ohms
    300Wx1CH @ 4ohms all rated at 12v

    Rockford 500s
    125wx2CH @ 4 ohms
    250wx2CH @ 2 ohms
    500wx1CH @ 4 ohms all rated at 14.4v i think

    12" Audiobahn Performer Sub
    500 rms power handling
    {Dual 4ohm} or 2ohm or 8ohm

    my friend had 2 audiobahn 1251q with rockford 360.2 and it knocks.. you can feel the bass 3 houses down.... i like rockford and audiobahn setup... as wiring goes... do it series-parallel

    how does series-parrel work?

    The only way i have ever hooked up my subs and amp is take a single wire from the neg part of the amp to the neg part of the sub and a single wire from the pos part of the amp to the pos part of the sub...

    so i dont know too much about any other ways
