Re: How would I best wire up 2x 100-300W subs + 1x 400W sub to a 1000W mono amp?
Your ideal impedance depends more on the amp and the speaker configuration. 1000watts at 4ohm is basically the same as 1000watts at 1ohm. One has more current, one has more voltage

No matter how many times you try to write out the formula, it isnt going to work the way you think it will.
Sorry if this is coming off wrong, but this is a very basic theory and general rule of thumb that i have a hard time bringing down to the level you are wanting.
