Question about MTX Car Audio & Video
SOURCE: need proper wiring details.
This is a dual 4 ohm sub. By wiring the terminals in series (one set of + to - from one side to the other) you will have an 8 ohm sub (most folks probably don't want this). By wiring in parallel (+ to + and - to - and connect the - wire to the - terminal on your amp and the + wire to the + terminal on your amp you'll have a 2 ohm sub.

I would recommend a brand named class D amplifier.
Connect both woofers in parallel (Positive to positive, and negetive to negetive) in a sealed enclosure. Make sure you have no air leaks. By connecting them in parallel the combined impedance will be two ohms. Make sure that the amplifier you choose can handle a load with that low of a resistance. Any high end amp should do this. Buy as much power as you can, but I would say a minimum of 1000W RMS. Beware of cheaper amps advertising "peak power". This can be considered half of what the RMS power would be (1200W peak = 600W RMS approximately).
Next, Run very heavy gauge (zero guage if you can) power line directly from the battery. Protect the wire where it passes through the body with a rubber grommet or otherwise something to keep the metal from cutting into it, and PUT A FUSE IN. I cant stress that enough. Put an 80 amp fuse in line incase you have an accident. Otherwise your car could very well burn!
Want even more punch?
Back at the amp, install the largest stiffener capacitor you can afford 1 Farad or bigger. Install this in a space where it would be protected in the event of an accident (on the inside of the strut tower or somewhere above the axle). There is a whole lot of energy stored in there that you don't want unleashed on you!
If you have any other questions please ask away!

either ur ohm load is way off ur pos n neg might be touchin or more than likely u blew u sub is it scratchy when u push in the middle of the cone ? does it push in at all?

It should tell you on the back of the sub ,The continus watts it will handle, If not phone the place you got it from, Or some place that sells them,
