    You can wire each sub itself to 2ohm. But your mono load choices 4ohm or 1 ohm.

    yes

    Wire each sub parellel, Each sub will only have 2 wires coming from it.
    Just because is has 2 voice coils doesn't mean you'll have to have 4 wires coming from it.

    ______VoiceCoil 1 VoiceCoil 2

    You Have:Black*____red
    _________red*______Black


    So wire: Black* to Black and red* to red, then have 2 wires
    leaving the red and black. that will give you 2ohms.


    P.S. don't pay any attention to the ____ marks.

    dvc help

    snapnakk--is your 2 channel amp
    1 ohm bridge/mono stable
    then wire each sub into 2 ohms
    then wire both subs together (parallel)
    for a 1 ohm load to your amp.
    if not
    is it just 4 ohm bridge/mono stable
    then wire each sub into 2 ohm
    then wire each sub in stereo (2 ohms)
    one sub for the left channel
    one sub for the right channel

    wiring both sub in stereo each
    sub will have the the most power
    that your amp can put out at a 2 ohm load

    the amp is 2 ohm stereo stable. So how would i put the wires to get that 2 ohm load. I dont know exactly how to hook them up. I do want the most power possible from the amp without wreckin anything.
    thanks so all the help.

    for each channel of the amp: wire the amp pos(+) to the pos(+) of sub of both VC. and then the amp neg(-) to neg(-) of both VC. repeat for the other channel of the amp. this creates a 2ohm load for each of the amps channels.
