I want to wire two rockford T1D415’s to a rockford 2500bdcp
my question is can i connect the speakers separately as it has two sets of speaker terminals?
and will the amp be running them at one ohm internally?

How to wire it to 1 ohm. Should be a section in the owners manual telling you how to connect them as well on that amplifier. A lot of mono block amplifiers have to sets of terminals on them yet you can connect just one set to them still getting 1 ohm load on the amplifier and wattage to the speakers.
yes but im going to be running 8g wire and i carnt get two of them into one terminal

Why run 8 gauge speaker wire? That is massive overkill on a 2.5K amplifier. 12 gauge as he said is perfectly fine for that wattage. Use the 12 gauge and it will work just fine as the site says. Also it should have come with instructions on how to do all that. 8 gauge speaker wire is just a waste of money and wire on a amp that low in wattage.

I'm running 8 gauge power wire as speaker wire on 1750 watts
The DD's have 8 gauge coming off them already so I figured that's what it called for
Truth be told its serious overkill but I just wanted all the wire to be red and black
It looks so purdy that way

Yes you can use both sets of connectors. The amplifier is mono, it has two sets of connections just to make it easier to wire.

You don't need two of them into the amplifier to get a 1 ohm load at the amplifier if you wire right. Also yes Dragon is right on doing it that way as well. Two ways you can wire it for a 1 ohm load. Doing the way you want or the easier way with wiring it the way 12 volt shows it.

With a set of dual 4 ohm subwoofers you wire it as the 12 volt says. When you use dual voice coil subwoofers you only need one set of terminals on the box then one speaker wire going to the amplifier. Not hard to figure out and the 12 volt page shows that.

The T1’s only have one set of terminals on them and use that swift technology
so i want to run a posative and negative from each speaker to the amp and use both the terminals on yhe amp

Swift Technology is just a switch nothing more it changes it from 2 ohm to 8 ohm. Put it on 2 ohm run one wire to the box terminal on the 2nd subwoofer do the same thing run it from the subwoofer to the box terminal inside the box itself so you have both wires inside vs using two box terminals on the box and two wires going to the amplifier. By doing it with one box terminal and the two wires from the subwoofer going to said one terminal you then only have to run ONE Speaker wire from the outside of the box terminal to the amplifier giving you a 1 ohm load as well. THAT is what I am trying to get through to you. Yes you can use both terminals on the amplifier but you can ALSO set it up to use JUST ONE! Yes you can do it the other way as well. It WORKS the same either way. Why waste the extra wire if you don't need to just adds to the cost overall and the amount of wire running. But if that is how you want to do it then w/e as Dragon said it will work.

That means less cutting into the box and less cost for another box terminal and wiring. Was trying to save you some money since either way works but one is less expensive and less wiring inside your trunk showing. It isn't rocket science,lol.

edit: btw my intent wasn't to come off as rude so if I did my apologies. Recovering from another surgery that has been painful so between that and the meds been a little short with people the past few days.
