    Wiring sub in parallel?

    Usually when I do this I wire both positives and both negatives and then send a positive and negative out to the amp. On my sub now, however, it has 2 postives and 2 negatives on one side,,, and 2 positives and 2 negatives on the other. The sub says impedance dual 4 ohms. And the amp is 2 ohm stable when bridged. How do I wire this bad boy?

    Oh ****, sorry dude, I forgot to reply to your PM. Audiobahn makes thier subs like that for ease of hokking up two or more drivers. That way you are not stuck trying to shove 2wires in one terminal. Just use one of the + and hook it up to the other +, same with the negative. THEN, with ONE SET of open + and - terminals, run it to the terminal cup on the box, then to the amp. Get it? I can draw something up for you if you do not.
