    still not possible 3 of those wire to eather e 8ohm load's which get's you a 2 something load, and wired to 2 ohm that get's you a below 1 ohm load not sure what though.

    if they were 6 ohm dvc subs you could get a one ohm load like this but since they are 4 ohm subs you'll get 1.33 ohms...which isnt horrible...good luck

    Thanks for the diagram, but can i run that 1.33 load on a 1ohm stable amp or will it overheat or something?

    your amp is 1 ohm stable then it will run perfectly fine at 1.33 ohm's. to be honest it would honestly be louder to run those 3 subs as opposed to like 2 dvc 4 ohm subs running down to a 1 ohm load. you will have a very minimal amount of peak or rms wattage difference between 1.33 and 1. your amp will run it fine my friend.

    keep it thumpin,
