My bro just got his other sub in...

So they are Dual 4ohm 10" subs running off of a JBL 600.1 How do I need to wire them? Thanks

run two sets of wires, one to each respective side. Use only one set of voice coils. Send each set off both subs to the amp. It'll be parallel at 2 ohms.

Why only use one voice coil?? you say the subs are dual 4ohm meaning each coil is 4 ohms (as opposed to being two two ohm coils) so just run a wire from one pos to the other coils neg then from the remaining pos and neg together then into the amp creating a 2ohm load.

err, i might be wrong with that, but if u run them in series parallel, u'll end up with a 4 ohm load. Or in series series circuit u'd end up with a 16 ohm load, and that wouldn't work very well...

hes got 2 subs...

yea series and series you would end up @ 16...damn...i was thinking 2 ohm VC even tho i clearly said 4 ohm! i run dual two ohms and have them set up to run at 2 ohms for now...if he has dual 4 ohm coils he would have to use one coil unless that amp is stable to one ohm. sorry my brain is fried trying to lay out my new system perfectly.

That is the thing, its not stable at 1ohm even though people have ran this amp at one ohm I dont want to try it.. So its setup for the 4ohm...
