    Hey Zane and geonn look here real quick....

    If I parallel wire my two 4ohm 12" subs does that mena that my 4ohm amp is only sending 2 ohm to each speaker?....Does that hurt the sub? Amps always send more watts in 2ohm form then they do in 4ohm form...My speakers are 4ohm...should i not parallel wire them....if i do will that allow my amp to send more watts to each sub....Basicly how should I wire my 4 ohm map to my 4 ohm subs in order to get the most watts out of it?

    This really depends upon your amps circuitry capabilities. If the amp is 2 ohm stable mono; then you should have no problems wiring 2 SVC 4 ohm subs in paralel to a 2 ohm mono load.

    Typically more power is produced at lower ohm loads- as the amplifier has to work harder to drive the lower impedence or resistance.

    Below is a diagram of how the subs would be hooked up to achive this 2 ohm mono load.
