    Wire them in parallel.

    Amp + to both coils +
    Amp - To both coils -

    This will give you a 1 ohm load. I don't recommend this unless your amp is designed to run @ 1-ohm. Most amps are only 4 or 2-ohm stable. So a 1 Ohm load would eventually destroy the amp.

    TNX

    But if I buy a JBL 1200.1 or a RF bd1000 they are 1ohm stable, is it safe to run it that way(1ohm)?

    Should be.

    What happens with amps that aren't 1-ohm stable is too muh current passes through and burns them out.

    A 1-ohm stable amp has the ability handle this current and won't burn out

    last tiem i checked, teh bd1000 was NOT 1 ohm stable...
    RF doesnt seem to like making amps that like 1 ohm laods....
    the JBL will however be stable at teh ohm load, just make sure that it is ventilated enuf as it is known to get warm to the touch under such a load..
    also, make sure it is getting enuf current..
    4 awg, nuthihng less....
    and it will sucka LOT of current so watch out...
