Audio experts know tricks to making subs beat harder. If I have 2 Audiobahn AW1251T subs which are 4 ohm dual voice coil... then how would I wire them to get the loudest bass out of them. I've seen ppl take the same set of speakers and hook them up one way and they beat and then hook them up totally different and they beat way harder. How would I achieve this with my subs    let's just say I have a Pioneer 760 2 channel amp.   Can any1 help???

You're talkinga about Series vs. Parallel wiring. Wring a dual 4 ohm speaker down to 2 ohms will lower the resistance, but keep in mind that as you lower resistance, the amount of current that you amp will need is going to increase as well. You need to be sure that you've got the appropriate guage power and ground wires, Be sure that the amplfier that you're using is going to be able to handle a low resistance load like that.

Yeah   I figured that and it SAYS it will handle a 2 ohm load so I guess I will see. The Wires r no problem... I got a 2 guage kicker wiring kit. So which is the hardest beat and how do I  get it?

that amp is only 2ohm stereo stable. so u can wire down to 2ohm per sub u just have to wire them 1 per channel. the only way i've kept from blowing those boxes apart is by reinforcing them with fiberglass. also the box fitting the cars has NOTHING to do with the box matching the woofers. check the specs. camaros always pound. and u might want to wire the woofers to 8ohms each and just bridge the amp. make sure you upgrade the factory ground wire at the battery and use a bolt, remove the paint from where you ground  your wires. the kicker amp kit should have came with a distribution block if not you might want to pick one up, i mean you only need 60 or 80 amps of current which a 8ga or 4ga wire would be fine

Ok i got u. But trust when I say that there is no way this box is coming apart off of 2 audiobahn 12's. Especially with only a 760 watt pioneer. But thanks for the info   I also believe that the 8 ohm wiring is going to give up the beating i'm trying to put on these 2 subs. Also the box has 4x4 round port in it so I think the box will be fine   I just need to know which setup is going to pound the hardest. And from what every1 is telling me   the 2ohm setup is the way 2 go.

2ohm ohm stereo vs a 4 ohm bridge is going to give you the same power either way.

I'm not askin that. I know for a fact... and my amp even says it that a 2 ohm load will get more power from it than a 4ohm load will. But I need 2 know how 2 do it right.

2 ohm stereo and 4 ohm bridge will give you the same power, therefore giving you an equivalent amount of power.. either way! That is the best you will get out of this amp, point blank pretty much. The only reason I would say use a series / parallel configuration is because the four ohm load will be higher (while still having the same output as a two ohm, single channel load) BUT it will be 'easier' on your amp.

Just my two cents.
