Hello. Quick answer...bad sub and amp combo due to fact that your sub needs a lot more power than this amp can produce (I'll explain later). But here is how you can do it: You can wire this dual 4 ohm sub in parallel or series. Parallel wiring would be to wire two the positive terminals on the sub to each other and wire two the negative terminals on the sub to each other. Thus wiring down the sub to 2 ohm. This what the amp would see. Series wiring would be to wire the positive and negative terminals on the same side of the sub to each other. Then wire the positive and negative terminals on the other side to the amp. Thus wiring the sub to 8 ohm. This what the amp would see. Illustrations can be found here: http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp?Q=1&I=42#results
Your sub specs are 1500 watts rms (how many watts your sub needs to operate efficiently or its minimum requirement. It has the a peak wattage at 3000 watts that it can accept in short duration. Your amp can only produce 300 to 600 watts at 2 or 4 ohm respectively. So you would be greatly under powering the sub which would produce a weak unfulfilled sound. You need an amp that produces a true 1200 to 1800 watts rms. There is a great selection out there.
Should have a diagram on the bottom of amp or where you hook up the speakers to amp......Its usually the two outside speaker connections.....just be sure to hookup negative to negative and positive to positive.let me know if this helps.........
i can make this relatively simple. 2 stages: Stage (1) wiring the Sub inside the box; Unscrew the SUB from the Box, (& undo the wires) Connect both +Positive terminals on the SUB to the +Positive terminal on the inside of your BOX. Connect both -Negative terminals on the SUB to the -Negative terminal on the inside of your Box, Then screw the SUB back into the Box. u Have just wired yr sub in parallel. any Amplifier will see it as 1woofer with 1OHMs resistance.
Stage (2) bridging your amp (please check Amplifier instructions on which terminals to use) generally you use "LEFT -Negative" and "Right +Positive" and connect to the corresponding terminals on the Sub Box. Hope that helps someone.
what impedence are the voicecoils?
Dual 4 - Dual 2 - Dual 1 ??
Orion SX / GS / HCCA amp Wiring guide:
Orange = Right Positive Black/ Orange = Right Negative Yellow = Left Positive Black/ Yellow = Left Negative Blue = 1+1
Bridging of SX or HCCA Amps: 1. Use the Orange wire for Positive. 2 Use the Black/ Yellow wire for Negative 3. Push "in" the Mono Button
That amplifier is only 4ohm mono stable - so assuming the subs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils...
First wire both in Parallel Independently So each subwoofer is now a 2 ohm load. (combine + and + - and- on both subwoofers)
Now Take a positive on one voicecoil of sub #1 and attach to amplifier+(orange)
Take a - on that same subwoofer and attach it to a + on the OTHER subwoofer.
Finally, take a - from the second woofer to the amplifier -(black/yellow)
Now you have a 4 ohm load on your bridged channels.

Wiring Codes for SX and HCCA Orange = Right Positive Black/Orange = Right Negative Yellow = Left Positive Black/Yellow = Left Negative Blue = Remote Turn On
You can remove the bottom of the amp and the colors can be deciphered as to which goes to which pin in the plug. Go to this link on AmpGuts for a reference. http://www.ampguts.realmofexcursion.com/Orion_HCCA250/
And here is a link where you can buy a new plug on ebay for $25. http://cgi.ebay.com.my/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110093583828&indexURL=
I had two of those they are awsome subs! anyway your best to connect them in parallel that is both positive wires connected together and both negative wires connected together then connect pos and neg to amp in a bridged configuration if its a 4 channel amp - this will put your subs under a 2ohm load and make sure you turn down gain and set your filter to low pass (very important!) turn up gain in increments till your happy :) rock on!
Generally to bridge an amplifier you need to insert the positive wire from the sub to the positive wire on the first channel. And then insert the negative wire from the sub to the second channels's negative terminal.
this actually could be your amp...try turning the gain down slowly and you will hear the bumping either stop or become morelike music background thanmusic foregroud. i had this problem with an older amplifier and i fixed it by getting a larder power/ground wire size and decreasing the gain a little.
