Re: i have 4 12
Hi,a stepwise solution will provide a better guide compared to a wiring diagram to help you with the installation of your device;
,the part of the solution explains how you would connect 2 speakers to the same channel of an amplifier,while the 2 part explains how you would connect the speakers to the monoblock amplifier;
Run speaker wire from the positive output of the amplifier channel to the positive terminal of one of the speakers. Solder the wire in place if necessary.STEP 2Connect a piece of speaker wire between the negative terminal of the first speaker to the positive terminal of the second speaker. Again solder the wire in place if necessary.STEP 3Connect the negative terminal of the second speaker to the negative output terminal of the amplifier channel with speaker wire. The speakers are now wired as an 8-ohm pair of speakers. PART 2STEP 1
Cut a length of speaker wire that's long enough to reach from the amp's mounting location to the subwoofer.
Separate the two leads of the speaker wire for 2 inches and remove 1/2 inch of insulation from each lead with your wire strippers on both ends of the wire.
Loosen the speaker output terminals of the amplifier by turning the set screws of the terminals to the left with a phillips screwdriver or hex wrench. Which tool you use depends upon the brand and type of amplifier you have.
Slide the bare ends of one end of the speaker wire into the speaker terminals of the amplifier. Slide the wire marked positive (+) into the positive terminal and the negative lead into the negative terminal. Tighten the set screws to hold the wires in place.
Loosen the subwoofer's input terminals by twisting them to the left until a hold appears in the terminal posts. Slide the bare end of the positive lead into the positive terminal and the negative lead into the negative terminal. Twist the terminals to hold the wires in place.
If you have a cause to use the wiring diagram,you can get it at the link below;
Thanks and take care

Hey well your gonna need to give more info. is the sub dual 2ohm dual 4ohm. if you have a dual 2 ohm you wire one + to one- (like a jumper wire)and then your other +.- go to your amp as 4ohms, if you have a dual 4ohm model and your amp can handel 2ohm stereo then wire your +to+ to +on the amp and the same for your -. it will bring a 4ohms to 2 ohms by connecting pos. to pos. and neg.to neg. then to your amp.
The wiring configuration depends on what final impedance you want the amp to see. If the subs are 4ohm DVC's, you can wire them to present a 2ohm impedance or an 8ohm impedance. The diagrams are here. If your subs are 2ohm DVC's, the wiring is the same. The impedances will be 1ohm and 4ohms.
With a single 4ohm DVC sub there are only two possible wiring solutions, parallel the voice coils for a final 2ohm load or series the voice coils for an 8ohm load. In your case, you want to wire them in parallel, both positives and both negatives connected to the amp terminals.
Here are the diagrams: (-) to (-) and then to the amp - (+) to (+) and then to the amp. Impedance = 2ohms.
Your Directed D2400 amp is CEA2006 Compliant. It is stable at 1ohm and will produce 1,200 watts into that load. So you want your subs wired as close to 1 ohm as possible.
The only 3500 watt Pioneer Premier series subs I could find were the models number TS-W3002D2 and TS-W3002D4 with dual 2ohm and dual 4ohm voice coils respectively. The wiring options for the D2's result in 0.5ohm (too low), 2 ohms, and 8ohms. Your best option would be the 2ohm configuration which would be voice coils in series and subs in parallel. Options for the D4's result in a 1ohm load and a 4ohm load. Your best option would be the 1ohm configuration which would be voice coils and subs parallel.
To see the wiring options, try Rockford-Fosgate's "wiring wizard".
Select 2 woofers and the appropriate voice coil impedance and quantity and click "search". It'll bring up all of the possible wiring configurations along with the final impedance load.
If you have the Kicker model number 06CVX122, with dual 2ohm voice coils, they can be connected to a mono amp at 2ohms. First jumper the voice coils in series, the dotted positive (+) to the undotted negative (-) (or vice versa). Each sub is now 4ohms. Then wire both of the remaining positives and negatives together on the amp terminals (in parallel). The amp sees a 2ohm load. Here's the diagram:
If you have the Kicker model number 06CVX124 with dual 4ohm voice coils, they cannot be wired to present a 2ohm load. They can only be wired as a 1ohm load (too low for the amp) or as a 4ohm load (at reduced power). Here is the diagram of the 4ohm wiring:
