    wire each sub in series , which will give a final load of 4 ohms per sub , then wire the 2 subs to the amp , that will make a final load of 2 ohms to the amp

    on each sub, wire the voice coils as such, wire positive of one coil to negative of other coil( called series), do the same to other sub.

    now you should have a positive and a negative left over on each sub, connect these wires to their corresponding spots on your terminal cups, if your just using a box with a hole in the back with wires coming out then skip this step.

    now were wiring the subs parallel. So connect both positives together, and both negatives together and connect wires to amp, now you have a 2 ohm load.


    next time you need help with sub woofer wiring issues and impedance, use this calculator, it pretty straight forward, and show you decent diagrams with all options for final impedance.

    thanks so what you both have told me is eventually the same? also the wires that connect to the amp do they go to each sub or to only one sub?
