    best way to hook up 2 JL 10w3's to a PG ZX500

    Hey guys



    2 JL 10W3's ( single voice coils, both are 2ohm speakers ) currently in a single box and wired each to their own sets of terminals.


    PG ZX500 (2/1 channel amp) which is rated by PG as: "300w x2 at 2 ohms" ~or~ "600w x1 at 4 ohm BRIDGED"


    Now I have no idea how impedance works, at all. It's pathetic, I know. How should I hook up the subs?


    I already did some research - does this look like what I should do??




    The PG amp has 2 sets of speaker outs. It goes L+ L- R+ R-

    There is a line between the L+ and the far outer R-, which says BRIDGED



    Is the "bridge" actually done by wiring the speakers in series, and using the outer terminals?

    Or can i hook both speaker positive to the outer L+ and bothe negatives to the R-


    Or am I tripping on drugs and should do what the crutchfield says (do the #'s match up with my setup)


    It should be at 300w each sup with them wired like in crutchfield pic?



    Thanks in advance

    well what ever you decide, make sure you use speaker wire to hook your woofers up

    is that a joke or are you serious?

    ive used 8 gauge power cable for subwoofer wire before but didnt really feel a difference

    still need answers




    Also, do i really need to fuse near the amp like in mymanual? The amp has no fuse.
    See Attachment.

    Thanks
