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.
Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

to run this at 1 ohm, connect one terminal to your amplifier and then run a line from that terminal to the other terminal, in parralel, which means positive to positive and negative to negative in all cases. a wire starts at one terminal, goes into the next terminal and continues to the amp.
To run at 2 ohm just connect one terminal to the amp, no need to make a connection between the two terminals, just choose one!
to run at 4 ohms, u have to wire the sub in series, which means you connect the negative of the amp to the negative of one terminal, and the positive of the amp to the positive of the OTHER terminal, and a wire should connect the negative and positive from each terminal.
This is assuming that your subwoofer has two 2ohm terminals.
be careful what you amplifier is stable at. running 1 ohm on a 4 or 2 ohm stable amp can and eventually will over heat and destroy it.

To wire the L72's at 1ohm, simply connect both +'s and -"s on each sub together. Then connect to your amp terminals.
With 2ohm DVC's, you can have either a 1ohm load or a 4ohm load. The diagrams are here (I know it's the website of a Kicker competitor, but their "wiring wizard" is simply the best).
Hope this helps.

A 4 ohm DVC sub can be wired in series like you described for an 8 ohm load or the voice coils can be wired in parallel for a 2 ohm load.
If your 2-channel amp isn't stable down to 2 ohms when the channels are bridged (most 2-channel amps are only stable to 4 ohms when bridged), you do not want the voice coils paralleled. The amp will overheat, go into protection mode, and eventually fail completely. A sub with 2 ohm voice coils would be a better fit. That way, you could series the coils for a 4 ohm load and the amp would operate OK with the channels bridged into that load.
But anyway, for the best power from THAT amp to THAT sub, your best wiring solution would be to wire each voice coil to a separate channel. The problem with that is that the signal to each coil needs to be EXACTLY the same or you will have one coil trying to move the cone out while the other one tries to move it in. You can closely approximate identical signals on the output side by using the same input to both channels. Do this by using only one RCA connection (either right or left channel) from your head unit and split it with a "Y" cable.
Hope this helps.
