    You can't. Do not pay attention to anything that has been said.

    Plain and simple, you cannot run TWO dual 6ohm subwoofers to a final 3ohm load. Your possibilities are 6ohms and 1.5ohms.

    what you can do depends on what amp you have

    Depends on your amp. You can either 1) Wire them to 1.5ohm, 2) wire them to 6ohm, 3) sell the subs and buy something different, 4) sell your amp and buy something different
