If you want a 2 ohm total load..wire it from the amp positive(red) to the first coil positive(red) and then to second positive(red). Amp negative(black) to first coil negative(black) and then to second negative(black). This will give you a 2 ohm total load on the amp.

    Are your subwoofers wired in series or parallel? Check your connections, if everything is ok, the problem is with your amplifier. It might have a blown capacitor inside or its not really a 1ohm stable amplifier. Have it repaired if thats the case.

    Performance Teknique ICBM-774

    It is almost obvious to me that the New Box is Unvented. If you went from Vented to non-Vented. there you go. The Amps and Subs should be doing the same thing. If your Sony 10's are designed for Vented they will not thump right in a NON-vented box.
