First you'll need to buy a good quality amp wiring kit. For the torture your battery receives, get a power cap. The higher the farad the better off. And as for sound quality use really good RCA's and speaker wire. Try to keep the amp as close to subs as possible, and speaker wire a the necessary length. Not to long. Be sure to have a good ground.

if your subs are dvc 1000w max and 500rms wiring up to a 1 ohm load you would need a 1000w max 1 ohm stable amp. to put this in a pickup truck, i would not put them in a box, i would get 2 12inch tubes to put them in. cause a wedge truck box would make your system sound like garbage and will be distorted, your sql will be poor, basically you would need the right amount of air space for the subs.
Sealed box- 2 ft cubed with a shared chamber would be fine. Can go smaller is you need the extra space. THe minimum requirment is .7 per sub.
Ported box- 3 ft cubed, with the port tuned to about 45 hz will work.. 45 hz isn't very low bass, but is at the very bottomn end of the frequency response for this driver.Also, if you are gonna run a ported enclosure, be ware of power handeling issus, and be careful not to over drive the woofer..800 watts rms for the pair on the high side.
google "subwoofer wiring diagram" that will help you out,....you put in how many subs, DVC, SVC, and the ohms of the subs.....good stuff to know b4 hooking up a system....hopefully you didnt fry your subs or amp.....let me kno.....
My guess is that one of your subs has a damaged voice coil, which acts like a short circuit to the speaker outputs. If you put an ohmmeter on the speaker terminals you should measure a resistance of not much less than 2 ohms (assuming you've wired the VC's in parallel). If you measure a significantly lower resistance then you have a damaged subwoofer.
Voice coil has been blown open. Most likely alot of times what I do to test a speaker is connect it to a 9 volt battery. on and off and the speaker should bounce. If not speaker is blown. Plus this way you could save yourself lots of problems. If the speaker was shorted and not blown open. You would now possible have a blown amp and home stereo.
