If you run two 4 ohm devices in parallel, they will look like a 2 ohm load to the amp. If you run them in series, they will look like an 8 ohm load. An amp designed to drive a 4 ohm load may try to deliver too much power into a 2 ohm load, and it may meltdown.

I think you should consult an audio specialist before you hook everything up, just to be sure you don't ruin anything.

this is how i wired my subs. for connecting it to the amp, i was thinking of just splincing and connecting the wiring for both + from the subs together, and both -, and bridgeing those 2 lines, exactly how it is shown in the pic.

the amp is 2 channel, 2 ohm unbridged, 4 ohm bridged

wire each coil to parallel and then combine the sub in series


or


wire each coil in series and then combine the sub in parallel.


should get the same impedence. follow with what seems easier to you.
