    Wiring question - need help

    alright, i am getting 2 12" rockford HX2's and i am getting the dual 4 ohm models. I have 2 SEPERATE boxes for them. My amp is 2 channel and runs at 2 ohms stereo and 4 ohm mono. If i wire each sub with the voice coils parallel, that will give the amp 2 seperate 2 ohm signals right? now my question is this: if my amp runs at 2 ohm in STEREO, will the 2 seperate 2 ohm signals be right? i guess im not getting the whole mono and stereo idea. <br />Also, when i wire them parallel, i make 2 Y's and connect the +'s of the coils together and the -'s of the coils together, then put both +'s to one connection and the 2 -'s to the other? is that right? do i just twist the 2 sets together and put them to each connector?<br />thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for your help,<br />Dustin

    yep

    i guess im not getting the whole mono and stereo idea.

    Stereo is two seperate channels. Mono means these two channels are combined two make one

    Also, when i wire them parallel, i make 2 Y's and connect the +'s of the coils together and the -'s of the coils together, then put both +'s to one connection and the 2 -'s to the other? is that right?

    you can do it that way<br /> <br />do i just twist the 2 sets together and put them to each connector?

    you can do this if you want.

    If you're not caught on the name trend try 2 12" Volfenhag 1000 watt subs. These thing are monsters. 22 lb magnets dvc 500 watts rms. I just ordered four of these and haven't found anything close for the price. They'll hit you for @ 175 on e bay w/ shipping. If tested them against some audiobahns and fosgate and the Volfenhags ate them. They do need power, if you could give them 400 rms per channel in a larege slot port SPL box I think you'ld be impressed.
