assuming you have a 2-channel amp that is bridgeable; you take the postive running from each subs and connect it to the +bridge terminal on your amp. Negative from both subs to -bridge terminal.

you could run two sets of wires from the amp (one set to each sub), Or you could run 1 set and hook it up to the first sub and then hook the other sub to that sub.

And Never use Wire nuts in a car audio application, they are meant for a non moving environment and they will fall off, Use some sort of Crimp cap or Butt Connector to make all of your connections (unless you solder your wires)

Follow Drums directions. But you don't need a crimp cap or butt connector. ALL you need is some old fashioned electrical tape that is what i use. Just Kiddin, if you use that you don't deserve to own a car audio system. I would run two sets of wires from the amp. 1 Set to each speaker. Most of the time the terminals on an amp are big enough that you can fit two wires in them as long as you are not using something as rediculous as 8 ga. or something.
