    2 ohm and 4 ohm wiring?? noob help!!

    so im bout to buy to sundown sa 10's from a friend. he bought them brand new. they r barely even broke in yet. only reason he is gettin rid of them is cuz they dont fit behind the backseat of his truck. the deal is just too good to pass up. $150 for both subs wen they r bout $200 each new. only problem is one is a dual 4 ohm an the other is a dual 2 ohm. wat r some of my wiring options?? im plannin on gettin the hifonics gladiator series 1400w amp from sonic with 0 awg power an ground wire. any opinions options feedback is greatly appreciated. this will be my first system so im gettin excited. thanks in advance

    Dual 4 ohm speaker
    Parallel; 2 Ohm
    Seires : 8 Ohm

    Dual 2 Ohm Speaker
    Parallel; 1 Ohm
    Seiries; 4 Ohm

    Parallel both speakers together DVC 4 @2 + DVC2 @1 = 0.5 Ohm Make sure your amp can handle this.

    Etheir way

    electrically it can work, but power will not be evenly distributed to the subs. if one sub gets more power than the other, the result will not be worth the effort. you certainly wouldn't want them in the same box. just run one sub. if you want to run two, sell one and buy a matching pair. your friend is right to get something that matches.

    one well done sub is plenty if you like music.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.
