    you need to tell us what kind of amp, how are you wiring it, what head unit, how is it wired to the speakers. Gotta have specifics if you want any help, not that i'll give you any

    1 amp to each sub? If so, switch the neg and pos speaker wires on one of amp and you should be good... pretty sure its a Phase issue . When you hook the second sub up its moving the opposite of the other and there canceling each other out...... this is if your saying you have 2 subs and an amp to each one.... let me know



    Head unit- cz702
    Speakers- 4 crescendo pwx. Aq tweeters
    Mids/highs amp- ppi a600.2 and ppi a200.2
    Sub- 2 12" zcons
    enclosure- in the works
    Sub amp- aq3500
    Alt- 220 amp
    Batts- 5 c&d 75ah and 1 bt-80
    Wiring- 4 runs of 0 awg and big 3

    What do you mean?. Don't think you did what I was sayin



    If there is a sub to each amp then hook one up like you said where is sounds the best. ( one sub to one amp) ...Then when your going to hook the wires from the other sub to the other amp, hook the wire you were going to put into the neg of the amp into the pos of the amp and pos into the neg. Know what I'm saying?



    Head unit- cz702
    Speakers- 4 crescendo pwx. Aq tweeters
    Mids/highs amp- ppi a600.2 and ppi a200.2
    Sub- 2 12" zcons
