    Wiring Subs to 1 ohm??

    I have 2 12" w7s. My Amp is 1 ohm stable but since w7's are single coiled is it possible? If not, is it possible to wire these 2 subs down to atleast 2 ohms?

    what are the impedances for each coil? if theyre single 4's they can only be wired down as far as 2 ohms.

    Wire your subs in parallel to get 1.5 ohms, which should still get plenty of power from your amp.

    How do I go about wiring them to 1.5? positive to positive , negative to negative then on wire to the amp?

    Yes.

    Positive to positive on the subs then to the positive on the amp

    Negative to negative on the subs then to the negative on the amp
