    wiring sub to 1 ohm

    im wiring my 2 Ohm L7 to 1 ohm and i saw that thing on the RF site about how to wire it but that not what i need to know how to do i need to know how to run the wire like itr says on the RF website in the pic, it has a wire running from the positive on the amp to both of the positives on the sub and i need to know how to use that same wire to go to both positives on the sub?

    The easiest way is to use two wires. If you really want to use only one wire, you will need to strip a section in the middle of the wire and fold the wire over on itself where you have stripped the insulation off and insert that into the first terminal and then continue on to the next terminal.

    well i was thinkin about just running the through one of the positives and pull it through untill i can reach the other positive and just cut the wire where it would be on the terminal

    That will work too, but you will only want to strip the wire where it will pass through the terminal.

    Re: wiring sub to 1 ohm

    take the main + wire from the amp and strip the end that would go into the sub terminal. take a short piece of speaker wire enough to reach the second + termineal bare both ends wrap the stripped end of the wire coming from the + on amp with one of the stripped ends on the small wire put them in one + terminal on the sub and take the other end of the small wire and plug it into the other + terminal on the sub. do the same with negative.
