Question about Rockford Fosgate RFP 2418 Car Subwoofer
Hooking a 2x 12 inch sub to a 1000watt mono amp
Posted on Apr 24, 2008
You may be surprised to learn that even though there is a negative and positive on the sub it usually dont matter all that much because that amp allows you to switch the polarity of its outputs to allow your mids to sound better... anyways on to your question To wire a sub it depends on how many you have, if they are dual or single voice coils, what impediance your amp is stable at. Tell me what type of amp you are hooking this subwoofer up to and how many are being connected. And ill try and give you the best way to connect the sub(s) to your amp.

That would be wiring it in a series. It would double your resistance (ohms) and lower the power (wattage) thats going to your sub. If your amps rms rating is the same as the subs rms rating then I would suggest that since it will protect your sub from blowing more than running a single wire through both positives and another one through both negatives. If your amps rms rating is less then I would suggest the other way. It will lower the resistance which will allow more power. All depends on the amp. hope this helps
