Hi there james. What you can do is connect the cables as normal. 2 to the left, 2 to the right. Then at the cable's end you need to mix the red left cable with the right red cable, and so on with the blacks. and its done. Now instead of 4 cables you have two. If you need further explanation please ask

Ok, without knowing if you have the 2 or 4 Ohm Dual Voice Coil (DVC) version of the subwoofer, I'm going to assume you have the dual 4 Ohm version. The reason why is because, assuming you have the Pioneer GM-5300T amp, that amp does not support an 8 Ohm load. If you wire it in parallel, that would give you a 2 Ohm load. Parallel will be solid red connected to red/white dot, then to amp +, and solid black to black/white dot to amp -. Without knowing more specifics on the amp, that should fix the problem. Let me know what you get.
You will need the amp wires. Red Positive to battery, Black negative from amp ground to unpainted car body surface, and the blue remote wire that goes from amp to remote wire on back of cd deck. Then you will need the rca cables from rear output of cd player to the amp. Then just the positive and negative wire from speaker to amp. Use Speaker Positive wire to Amp Right Channel Positive And speaker negative wire to amp Left Channel Legative wire. That is it.
if you buy the 4 ohm subs you can drop each of them to 2 ohm and then down to 1 ohm between the two of them. going with the 2 ohm no matter how you wire them you will either get 2 ohms 4 ohms or 8 ohms. hope this helps by the way the 4 ohm solobaric and the 2 ohm are both the same price.
Well first of all all solobarics are dual voice coil so you have 2 2ohm voice coils so if you wire them in parallel the sub will be pulling a 1ohm load wich would in time blow out your amp. So you want to wire both voice coils in series to produce a 4ohm load.
1st--on 1 sub put a wire connecting one red with white dot to the blk with white dot
2nd--do the same thing to the other sub !!do not wire a red/white to an all black
3rd--wire the full blk negetives to the amp, then same thing to the positive
