Question about DB Drive Car Audio & Video
Parallel is all positives (Red+) to all + and then keep all the negative's (Black -) together hooking them to the amp. if you dont have the big 3 upgrade (extra battery thick wire 0-4 AWG wire and an extra battery) keep it to 2 or 4 ohms and google impedance calculator and go from there. also just because your amp is 1 ohm stable doesn't mean it won't break it at 1 ohm and cranked up all the way

If you have a DVC 4ohm speaker, and you are using both voice coils, the amp is seeing a 2ohm load.
If you bridge the amp, you CAN run both subs as long as the amp is Two Ohms Stable.
Wire each subs voice coils in parallel.(Positive to positve, neg to neg.) (2ohms) each.
Then wire the two subs in series.(Neg from amp to neg of sub one, pos of sub one to neg of sub two. then pos of sub two to pos of amp.
If it sounds too hard, leave it as you are already running the amp at two ohms.

Halving the impedance will draw twice the current. You could technically get a 3 Db more power since the peak voltage will remain the same. BUT if the magnet structure is not intended to use that cone design, the magnet difference MAY not give you 2 ohms.
In fact, if the designed magnetic flux were smaller, you could wind up with a 1 ohm speaker.
trying to get that much power is really kind of silly as even 50 watts with efficient speakers will exceed safe levels of sound that will not cause damage to your ears.
As you push an amp up in power, usually distortion will increase as well.

You should never connect a load of an impedance less than the min the amp is able to drive. This can have disastrous consequences that may easily result in failure of the amps output stages. You need to use a different configuration that does not overload the amp in this manner for safe operation.
