    Best set up for my subs?

    Ok, first off, this is my first post here

    The set up i have right now is ONLY temporary because i haven't had much time to change it since i installed it.

    Im running 2 12" MTX 8500s with an absolute evd 2200 amp

    http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...+EVD-2200.html
    (i have no idea why, but my amp has 2 channels instead of one)

    How i currently have them set up is:
    Input goes to crossover, which cuts off the lows at 200hz
    goes to the amp.
    amp sends individual signal to each sub.

    Subs are 4 ohm dual coiled, in series, so each one is wired at 8 ohms.

    Should i parallel the coils, then parallel both speakers and bridge the connection?
    Or keep the signals separate, but parallel the coils?

    Here's a pic of my set up

    You definatly want to bridge the amp.

    Seiries coils so each sub makes 8 ohms, then parrallel the 2 so that you get a total load of 4ohm to bridge to the amp.
