Ok i just received my 2 10's they are pioneer champion series 1000w they are heavy as fuck which is a good indication, right? Thy are DVC though and i dunno how to hook 2 of them up to 1 amp if the amp only has 4 spaces for 2 outputs. Specs on the subs: Pioneer TS-W257D4 10" Champion Series Subwoofer with 1000 Watts Max.Power IMPP with Aramid Fiber Cone Integrated Single-Sided Silver Compression Terminals Recommended Enclosure Use: 0.65 ~ 1.25 Cubic Feet Dual 4 Ohm Voice Coil The amp i have at the moment is rather shitty and i think its staying like that for a few months. The specs are: Product Features 320W peak output @ 1% THD, bridged 310W peak x 2 @ 2 ohms; 220W peak x 2 @ 4 ohms 155W RMS (continuous) x 2 @ 2 ohms; 110W RMS (continuous) x 2 @ 4 ohms Adjustable 40-250Hz low-pass crossover Platinum-plated RCA connection Line-out System distress indicator Warranty Terms - Parts - 90 days Warranty Terms - Labor -90 days Product Height -2-3/4" Product Width -15" Product Weight -8.8 lbs. Product Depth -3-1/4" Continuous Watts per Channel (4 Ohms) -110 x 2 Continuous Watts per Channel (2 Ohms) -155 x 2 Continuous Watts Bridged -320 Max Power Watts per Channel (4 Ohms) -220 x 2 Max Power Watts per Channel (2 Ohms) -310 x 2 Number of Channels -2 High-Pass Filter -Yes Low-Pass Filter -Yes I have about 20 feet of power wire(8ga), 4 feet of ground wire, an inline fuse and the rca cables to go from the amp to the head unit (pioneer p5000ub), that part i can figure out but any idea how to hook up the dvc subs? EDIT: would this diagram work? http://img8.imageshack.us/my.php?image=2dvcseriesvcparallelsubs0gh.jpg

you would wire them in series. run one speaker wire (single) to a + on one coil, and - on the other coil, (do this for both drivers). Now you have a + and - open on each woofer, wire the +'s together and to the amp, and the -'s together, and to the amp. this will give you 4 ohm mono. if you want 1ohm, wire all the +'s together, and all the -'s together.

does it matter if i split the 2 wires down the middle and run that from + to -? im assuming theyre the same inside. Thanks for the quick reply.

mecanically they're the same. The jackets are just marked in a way to distinguish them from each other. you can split them.

thank you i figures so, cant wait to get these in. Now if i connect positive of the sub to positive of the amp that will make the load 4 ohm correct?

I would not do it the way that has been stated. You have a two channel amp, that does not list specs for bridging. Wire each sub's coils in parallel. That is Connect both "+" and both "-" to eachother. Then run a wire from the "+" on the amp to one of the "+" on the sub, and the same for the negative. Do this for each sub. That will give you a 2 ohm load for each driver. The specs for your amp list this at 155W RMS x2 Borrowed from JL tutorial: How to wire subs into parallel. You will do this twice and run each sub to one channel of the amp. http://mobile.jlaudio.com/graphics/Support/Tutorials/wiring_images/DVC_Parallel_1.gif

For what I posted; you said you had 4 spaces for two outputs. From each sub you would go to two of the 4 spaces.
