Well how do you have the amp setup. I normally bridge the amp and run the subs in parallel.

First thing is to make sure you have the pics on the web ( i.e. a server, or cardomain )

right click on the pics then.. go to properties.. highlight alll the url addy.. right click again to copy or ctrl c.. then to post it ..

[img] the url that you copied goes here ( ctrl v ) [/img] just make sure there'* no spaces.. I just did it that way to make it easier to see.

Parallel.. is 2 wires runin to each sub one for (+) and (-) from the amp.. so 4 wires all together

Series is 2 wires coming out of the sub..(+) going to one speaker and a jumper wire from that speaker'* (-) to the (+) of the other speaker.. then a wire from the amps (-) to the ground on the second speaker
