    Re: wiring 2 subs into 1 ohm

    Assuming they are dual 4ohm subs, the simple way to get 1ohm is to wire all the + together and wire all the - together.

    Re: wiring 2 subs into 1 ohm

    there dual 4 ohm subs. I got the subs themeselves wired in parallel but i dont know how to hook them up to the amp. Where should the sub's lead wires go on the amp. Heres the amp terminals below,


    12 34
    ++ - -

    where should the negatives and positives go from the sub to the amp. I swear im doing this right but theres barely any power

    ok both subs are metered at 2 ohms each now. Is that correct for a 1 ohm load?

    Re: wiring 2 subs into 1 ohm

    most mono block amps that have more then one postive and negative are uselly link in the inside of the amp so you should be able to just hook the woofer postive to amp postive ect. it may just be amp idk

    Re: wiring 2 subs into 1 ohm

    have you tried reading the owners manual instead of taking the time to make 2 threads about this?

    i read the owners manual on your amp and in 2 minutes in knew how you should wire these up. try it.

    All + hooked together. All - hooked together...

    You're only giving the R's 450w a piece, and given that music is very dynamic, I'd be surprised they're seeing much over 250-300w on heavy bass. Not to mention that box looks to be about 1/2 the size you should have.
