    !¿!¿!¿Total wiring help!¿!¿!¿

    I have found out that wiring is very important....and the box is also important.....i dont realy know anything so imma just tell you about my system and help me out of wiring please.

    I have 2 15" fostgate series 1 158 subs(old). The box is seal(have been told its too small) the speakers are inverted. I have a 4 gauge wiring kitfrom wal-mart.....i have 12 gauge coming from both speakers bridged to one channel on a two channel amp....600 watts at 2 ohms(pyle rated at like 14.5 volts).....i have the negative on negative and all that. i have a crossover(180degree punch switch).
    Also....How do you tune a box
    ask any questions needed...but remember i am car audio illiterate.

    well asd for how to wire it.....read the sticky at the top...gives many diff. wiring possibilities.....my guess is u have 2 15" 4ohm svc subs...if thats the case wire them in parallel for a 2ohm load to the amp....since it can be bridged they will be geting 300w a piece(if ur amp wasnt highly overated) appears everything is wired right so far.......as for tuning a box......you would need a ported box to tune it.....the tuning freq. would be determined by the volume of the box and the length of the port......if u have any more questions feel free to ask


    if ur subs are svc(single voice coil)(they only have one set of terminals wire as follows from the amp

    was up goddy....
    Yes, they are svc.
    I dont have them wired up like that though, but i think its still the same.
    I have 4 diff. wires going to the amp bridged. Not one speaker hooked to the other and that one to the amp.
    Do you think the 600watts is enough to give the full power....and what about the invert?

    inverting them is ok......doesnt really matter either way......will sound the same.....and like i said...that amp probably doesnt put out anywhere near 600w.....but it sounds like its wired correctly.....
