    simple box wiring question

    Alright, now that i have finally figured out how to wire my subs in parallel (you could say i am a little slow), i have another question. With paralle, one sub is hooked to the amp and then the second sub is hooked up to that sub. But, with the box i am getting, the 2 sub compartments are divided (It is an R/T box). So, there is no way to run wires from one sub to another. So, I think I have it figured out, but i want to verify things. It seems to make sense that i would just connect the 2 terminals on the box to the subs by just matching up the postives and negatvies. Then, i would just do all the same stuff i would if the 2 subs werent divided on the outside of the box and just pretend that the terminals on the outside of the box are the + and - of the sub. I made a quick diagram to show what I am talking about. The +s and the -s on the box just represent the 2 terminals. So, what i am showing is the amp hooked up to one terminal. And then stick a second wire into each part of the terminal and run that to the other terminal. Does all this look right. Correct me if i am wrong please.

    as long as your subs are wired to the terminals correctly you will be fine - you can think of the box terminals as an extension of the voice coils



    good luck and good listening!
