    Need help wiring. How to??

    I'm a real newbie to car audio. I have 2 DB Audio 12s that are 700w 4-ohm DVC and 2 hifonics 300w 4ohm DVC. I am putting them on a Hifonics Gladiator 1400.1 . I need to know how to wire the subs. Series or parallel ? What ohm load should they have after wiring. I want them to have a lot of bass but I also want them to last. What's the best way??

    Wire them all to 8 ohm and then wire them all in parallel for a 2 ohm load. Best option would be to use the 2 db 12's at 1 ohm

    just do the pair of db's. If you wire all of them to the amp you might actually be hurting more than helping. One set of subs will max out while the other will want more. So I would suggest just the one pair.

    Parallel/parallel for a 1 ohm load. Or do them series/parallel for a 4 ohm load.
