    assuming that you mean each speaker has 2 1 ohm coils...(kinda odd), its not possible

    Re: Wiring a 1 ohm dual voice coil sub. Need help.

    See the problem is weird, my friends dad had wired the subs in some odd way, but it was 2 in the one box connected so that it was only the negative and positive coming out. We pulled them out to carpet the box, but when doing that my friend didn't look at how they were wired. So they re wired them a different way, only when they were wired like that they mad clipping sounds. I'm pretty sure they are eu-700's Elemental Designs, my friend thought they were one ohm each, but sites are saying they run at 4 ohms each. What would be the best way to re wire them? So they sound the best they can obviously :P

    Alright bud, if your amp is 1 ohm stable you wanna parallel the coils on each sub and then parallel the subs to get 1 ohm, if not your gonna have to parallel coils on each sub then series the subs together to get 4 ohms, 4 ohms has less distortion but alot less powerful
