you wire up it into 1ohm.

pos/neg on one side of each sub....the connect all the pos together from the other sides, and run one pos wire into the amp terminal. do the same for the neg.

Someone check my math because I got 1,200w X 2 channels @ 1 Ohm... So, each sub will have 1,200w and your amp is rated for that kind of load... :cool:

Naughty T, I dont think your Diagram is correct.. But i could be wrong.. Here's what i dont think is right..

You shouldnt have a wire running from the Pos to the Neg of the same speaker..

But again, ill admit, i Am wrong sometime's.. But i seriously dont think it's right..
I've done that setup lots of times and it works like a charm... All you're doing is making the two subs act like one big ass sub... when you wire it like that, you are puting 2 subs in 1 curuit and running a Mono Bridge Load which, from what I have been told, is the most effective way to drop the ohm load... I'd like for the pros to correct me if I am wrong... :)

My Speakers are 15in Kicker SoloBaric L7s
and my Amp is a AutoTek MX-5000 (2400watts)

ok here are my Amp Specs
500w x 2 @ 4 Ohms
750w x 2 @ 2 Ohms
1200w x 2 @ 1 Ohm
2400w x 1 @ 2 Ohms Mono

now explain Naughty T
If you run all four subs on 2 channels this is where you'll be at... Because they are 2 Ohm subs... Now if you just ran 1 of your subs and bridged your amp to one channel mono, you would be slingin' the full 2,400 watts to it... The only way you could get all 2,400 watts to all 4 of your subs on 1 channel is if your subs were 8 Ohm subs, which they are not... You are limited by the fact that your subs are 2 Ohm subs... It's an issue of burning up your amp or not...

your right naughty cept his subs are DUAL 2ohm so his options are 1ohm per sub or 4ohms per sub . and .5,8,2 ohm per pair of subs/channel.
