    Noob with questions about amp settings, and wiring subs?

    I was one of those punk kids growing up, that had 2 15" Kickers, in a big *** ported box, with a big amp, that played them as loud as they could go. Ive since grown up, and matured a lot to realize how dumb I probably looked, lol and am now looking to actually tune and get the best sounding bass.

    I recently sold those subs, since I bought my 2013 Charger, they wouldn't fit in the trunk. Im getting a pair of MTX TS55 12's, in a nice ported box, and would like todo everything the right way.

    I don't know the model number of my amp off the top of my head, but its a Hifonics Brutus, one of the bigger models. It has all kinds of adjustments- Level, Bass Boost, Phase, HPF, LPF, and some more that I cant think of off the top of my head.

    Whats the correct/best way to wire these subs to get the most bass. Im not looking to be heard miles away, these subs are pretty much being given to me, so I cant pass them up. (For now at least).

    Its a stock 2013 Charger RT with the uConnect Alpine system. I have an MTX Re-Q hooked up to get signal to the amp. The RE-Q also has a few adjustments.

    Any help is greatly appreciated! Heading out right now to pick them up.

    There are a lot of guys willing to help here, but you have asked some really wide open questions. I would have to write a short book to give you all the info you are asking about and even then I'm not sure it would help.

    Take a deep breath, grab a mug of your favorite beverage and read all the users manuals for your equipment (all are available as PDFs online). Then plan out your install. As you do this and you have *specific* questions, ask them here and we can help.
