    hehehe

    the feed is mono meaning you'll get no stereo sounds when playing

    For an electrical circuit to be usable it needs a way towards and a way back

    You could see your amp and your sub as a race track each on a oposite site of the track. You just need some line going towards it and another line going back to make the circuit

    Any given speaker or sub will have a negative and a positive terminal. Normally when you got a basic situation where one port (exists out of a + and a - on the amp) is used to power one speaker then where the + or the - goes doesnt matter because you have a simple circuit. In your situation (if i'm getting it right) your sub as multiple speaker connection slots for getting a good feed, make sure that + goes to + and - goes to - (on both connects).

    Madness what I see

    i think u want to bridge it. Wire the subs together. so that u get a 2ohm load. so wire each sub into 4ohm then wire them togethere and u get a 2ohm load. Then u take the one + wire and put it on the left positive then u take the - wire and put it in the right -. Someone back me up on this one.

    Hmmm

    If it's a one channel amp, the two sets of + and - are the same connection.Just used them according to your sub box set up..For exampl : I also have a one channel amp (xtant 1000.1), running 2 10w7's, i only use one set of the +and - , cause my sub box has one connection which splits up inside to feed both subs..If i had one connection on the sub box for each sub,then id use both the sets of connections on my amp....
    Hope this helped..
