Whenever i wire 2 4 ohm svc subs the system just starts to pound real hard and its not like bass moving to music but just bass just moving up and down
Ok so i bought a profile california 600msx mono amp when i hook up my subs to it, it just starts to make them pound up and down and thats it. no bass type deal to the music its like boom,boom,boom,boom, no like boom,boom,boomboomboom,boomboom but just straight boom.

I am assuming these are subs, you didnt say, but that is my guess. do you want bass, or do you want to take it easy on your amp? do you have a terminal cup on your sub box, or just wires going into the box to the speakers? take it easy route: wire positive from amp to positive of one speaker, negative of amp to negative of the other speaker, with a jumper wire connecting the negative of the first speaker, to the positive of the second. more bass route: run seperate positive and negative wires to each speaker, making sure to maintain proper polarity.
Is this sub an svc or a dvc? From what I looked up they are svc, so each sub's voicecoil is 3 OHMS, connecting them in parallel would lower them to 1.5, and your amp is capable of going down to 1.5 ohms. So I would suggest running them in parallel.
Speakers wired in parallel Recommended Amplifier: Stable at 2 or 1 ohm mono
(Although from the information I gathered these subs have 3 OHM voicecoils, so in the diagram where is says 4 OHM it should say 3 OHM, and the 2 OHM should say 1.5 OHMS.
Bridge it. Should be marked on amp. According to specs should get u the power u need. Amp max 1500 watts. at 2 ohms. Speaker max is 2200 watts at 4 ohms. Turn amp down and adjust to your own taste. trust your ear man.
are you factoring the ohm rating from running them parallel?
2 x 2o subs parallel = 0.5 ohm (lowers ohm's)
2x 2oh subs series = 4 ohm
IT is posable that you are calculating the ohm rating fine, BUT some SUBS can reach lower ohm rating while hitting bass- i didnt know this till i had a rather insane sub that would dip to 1ohm while hitting hard bass causing my amp to go into protect mode.
there could b allot of factors involving this problem first could and most important is to make sure theres no loose connections in your wiring and find out how ur subs are wired in. are they SVC or DVC (single and duel voice coils) also what are theyre impedences if SVC could be 2, 4, or 8 also the same as DVC but jus 2 sets of terminals. find out first then the reason i ask is cause allot of half way manufactures are installing a device u could say that will cause amps to automatically cut off when the load on the amp reaches its lowest impedence load so when ur subs are moving in and out that load varies with how far the sub is extending out jus cause a sub say its a 4 ohm SVC doesnt mean that when its pounding away the load may actually be 3 ohm when fully extended. find out these variables first and then reply and ill let u know what to do properly.
I Had the Same Problem I just unplugged my amplifier changed the fuse, also i had a fuse in the battery cable and changed that, unconnected the RCA wires and plugged them back in and then put new fuses in and plugged everything back into the amplifier and it worked again. If that doesnt work get back to me i will try to help you.
Again as I have stated in my other answer to you. You can not wire two SVC 2 ohm subs to acheive a 2 ohm load. more than likely you are running your amp at 1 ohm mono and this is why it is clipping and shutting off.
