    Which one of these ways to wire is correct? Or are they both okay?

    Check out the pic and let me know if I can use either setup. I was planning on doing the first option, but would save a bunch of wire if I can do the second

    Either will result in a one ohm load.

    I use the top wiring, only because i like using distro-blocks on the inside of the enclosure. Most subs now a days come with 10ga direct leads, so I just run quad 10ga to single 8ga distro.

    Either way would be fine.

    I know the load I will get. I guess I am just wondering if daisy chaining from speaker to speaker will be okay

    It's not going to matter much as long as you feed the posts I installed with a nice 8ga from the amp....those runs in the enclosure are going to be pretty short..

    I was going to run dual 10 gauge from the amp and utilize the two + and - outputs front the amp

    i did tl testing on using 8 gauge ofc, compared to using 14 gauge ofc speaker wire from menards, and gained absolutely nothing on the TL. it was only 3k power but I expected something. I dont see the need unless you are running like a 10k system.
