So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    The reason you can't wire different ohm subwoofers is because the will recieve different amounts of power. If these subwoofers are in the box there will be some cancellation issues and other things.

    These pictures are just to give you an idea

    2010 Kia Forte Koup
    Pioneer DEH-9500
    Not sure what subs im going to use yet using some pioneers atm
    Crescendo BC2000

    Orion 4800HP < Not in use
    Knu 1/0
