    You need to have dual 4 ohm or single 2 ohm subs to wire into a 2 ohm load.

    If they are single 4 ohm you are not going to be able to wire to 2 ohm.

    That is 1 ohm.


    If your meter is showing you 2 ohm then try this.

    Leave it on the correct setting to test the ohm. Then touch the leads together and see what the internal resistance of the meter and leads is. Then subtract that from the number it displays when you check your wiring.
