parallel vs series wiring

Lets say i have an amp with peak power at 2ohms and i want to buy 2 12" subs.. is it better to get dual .5ohm and run series or single 4ohm and run parallel.

Here's what a friend sent me regarding putting multiple subwoofers in one chamber...

..."parallel wiring is to be prefered in general.Impedance peaks, even at frequencies higher than fs,*correlate with high voice coil velocity due to resonant conditions.

Parallel wiring will tend to balance voice coil velocity betweendrivers, when resonance peaks are differing due to tolerances,which is normally the case. The resonating driver simply getsless current than its non resonating neighbour.

In the series circuit current through all drivers is the same,and the resonating driver will see higher voltage at his clampsthan his non resonating neighbours, which tends to make thingsworse, because power is always distributed to the driver whichbehaves worst at a certain frequency"...

Umm... say what?

There is some conjecture that parallel has advantages over series, but seriously... it nothing to get worked up over. I've tested it. Zero differece.

do both...Series/Parallel

get two 2 ohm DVC subs and wire the coils on each sub series, so you end up with two 4 ohm subs. Then, wire the two subs in parallel for your final impedance of 2 ohms. This is common practice when using a common chamber.

Your Going to confuse the op....... Lmao

Re: parallel vs series wiring

In no way am I confused.

Maybe I just posted this in the wrong place?

Is there someone who actually builds woofers in here?

No offence to any of the replies, I truly appreciate your help!!
