    Wiring sub help.

    Ok i got a couple of wiring diagrams in mind to do. Ok first of i have a 2500d which has two bays whcih is really throwing me off in wiring. Then i have (2) dvc 2 ohms each. Will wiring the speakers straight up meaning - to - and + to + on each sub then send those parallel to amp, with a sub on each bay of the amp will that give a 2 ohm load on the amp. Or do i really have to wire the subs together to get a 2 ohm load. I looked at the rockford fosgate wiring diagram and i can wire them together by running each sub at series then run them together parallel to get a 2 ohm load but i figured since i have two bays on my amp and i have 2 dual 2 ohm subs that i can just wire it straight up to get the same ohm load. But i may be wrong

    Please help me out

    Re: Wiring sub help.

    Use the JL audio wiring diagrams they are better.

    Each sub can be independantly wired for 1ohm or 4 ohms

    When wired together in Series Parallel you will get a 2 ohm load
    When wired together in parallel parallel you wll get a .5ohh load

    I think I would wire each sub in Parallel down to 1ohm and use the both speaker inputs on the amp.
