    Need help wiring my new ED k's to a USX800d

    I didnt see this when i did a quick search and i wanted to make sure i did this right since this is my first "good sub setup". I spent alot of money on this and i dont want to f@ck it up.
    I have two ED K's (two of these http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...015682463&rd=1)
    and
    USX800d (link= http://www.sounddomain.com/sku/USAUSX800D)

    How do I bridge these to be at two ohms? I have only dealt with circuit city (meaning that the subs only had one connector for speaker wire) subs before and i dont want to **** these up. Thanks guys.

    -Matt

    You have 2 e12kd2 subwoofers and want them
    wired for a 2 ohm mono load for your amp.

    If you wire each sub in series they become 4ohm
    loads each.
    Then wire them together in parallel to give you a
    2ohm mono load so your amp will put out max power.

    I tried doing it but i did it wrong. Thanks for telling me this, this might explain the popping sound i am getting.
