Wiring Question

I have two 2ohm DVC subs. I want a two ohm load from my mono D class amp. How should this be wired? Also - My mono amp is 1600 watts. There are terminals for two subs just like a 2 channel amp. Is each terminal 1600 watts or do I need to bridge?

 
my amp is the xplod 1600 watt mono class D. rms at 2 ohms is 900 and rms at 4 ohms is 500. i have two 2 ohm DVC 1600 watt max 12" subs in a sealed box. the rms on the subs is 800 watts

 
ok i got that but there only seems to be one positive and one negative coming out of the amp and i have 2 terminals on my mono amp. should i connect it to one channel or set it up like i was bridging it?

 
It depends on the specs of your amp. Most amps cannot support a 2-ohm load in bridged mode. Post a link to the specs of your amp. or post the model # so I can take a look at the specs for myself. You say that there are 2 terminals; If there are 2 terminals, then it is not a mono amp. But I can't make a judgement when I do not know which amp you have. Also, post the model # or the subs you will be running.

This is how you should wire your system. This is called series wiring. The Subwoofers technically are resistors in a series circuit. This is how you will wire 2 2-ohm Duel Voice Coil subs in a 2-ohm load setup. The positive and negative wire going to the amplifier should be bridged over the two channels.

Watch the video pop put up. Those don't put up anywhere near what they claim. Hence why spokey said run it at 1 ohm.

Or a 25 and a 30, 25s are just harder to find in stores. I may be able to get one from my local audio installer. I already have to talk to them to...
