    I want to die peacefully in my sleep, just like my Grandpa. Not kicking and screaming like the other passengers in his car.

    if they are dual coil 1 ohm subs, wire them in series to raise the impedance and do the same to the other then take and wire them in parallel to bring it back down to a single 1 ohm load




    There's nothing like biting off more than you can chew, and then chewing anyways!

    It is the same principle as using the guide and using 2 dual 2 ohm subs....just different ohms.

    Exactly...if you have 2 dual 1 ohm subs and you want to wire to a 1 ohm load wire it like that.

    Fi doesn't make dual 4. he needs to wire the voice coils in series, then the two subs in parallel.

    What amp will you be using because if you are using? The class d amps range from 2 ohm to 1 ohm... The only amps that I can recall droping down less than one ohm are the high current orion reds hcca's (old school amps) and the old crossfire hc series amps. The HC amps are RARE!!! I drove those amps at 1/2 ohm and the orion red 1/4 ohm.
    Use the diagram as if it were a dual 1ohm sub....
