    1.34ohms would probably be your best bet

    wire them into pairs @ 4 ohms, then those three pairs can be put in series together to make 1.3 ohms

    Re: wiring options that were not answered in stiky

    so with all 6 dual 4 wired how would I achieve the 1.34 ohms? would I wire each sub to 2 ohms then wire all three together to what ohm load then do the same to the other 3 then wire the 2 sets of three to one load?

    a pair of dual 4 ohm subs wire into a 1 or 4 ohm load, wire them to a 4 ohm load, so then you have three 4 ohm loads. Those three loads will wire series into 1.3 ohms

    diagram? lol sry I think I get what your saying. wire each sub to 2 ohms put two subs together for a 4 ohm load. then wire the three sets of subs together down to 1.34 ohms.

    FYI, series adds the values of resistance. Parallel is the term you meant to use.
