i can make this relatively simple.
2 stages:
Stage (1) wiring the Sub inside the box;
Unscrew the SUB from the Box, (& undo the wires)
Connect both +Positive terminals on the SUB to the +Positive terminal on the inside of your BOX.
Connect both -Negative terminals on the SUB to the -Negative terminal on the inside of your Box,
Then screw the SUB back into the Box.
u Have just wired yr sub in parallel. any Amplifier will see it as 1woofer with 1OHMs resistance.

Stage (2) bridging your amp
(please check Amplifier instructions on which terminals to use)
generally you use "LEFT -Negative" and
"Right +Positive"
and connect to the corresponding terminals on the Sub Box.
Hope that helps someone.

Depending on the type of amp, yes. not all amps are created equal, just because it says 800 watts doesnt make it so. but a true 800 would be plenty.

the constant power should be run to the battery. The "turn-on power" should be run to your radio which only comes on by the ignition. If it still comes on then your radio is wired to come on without key. Then you have to check the constant and turn-on wires for it.

No. These subs are rated at 1500 RMS each. So you need an amp that will produce at least 3000 watts RMS at 2 ohm load or if you wire each sub to a separate amp down to 1 ohm...then you will need an amp that will produce at least 1500 RMS. Those subs can handle more than they are rated though.

Hello. Quick answer...bad sub and amp combo due to fact that your sub needs a lot more power than this amp can produce (I'll explain later). But here is how you can do it: You can wire this dual 4 ohm sub in parallel or series. Parallel wiring would be to wire two the positive terminals on the sub to each other and wire two the negative terminals on the sub to each other. Thus wiring down the sub to 2 ohm. This what the amp would see. Series wiring would be to wire the positive and negative terminals on the same side of the sub to each other. Then wire the positive and negative terminals on the other side to the amp. Thus wiring the sub to 8 ohm. This what the amp would see. Illustrations can be found here: http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp?Q=1&I=42#resultsYour sub specs are 1500 watts rms (how many watts your sub needs to operate efficiently or its minimum requirement. It has the a peak wattage at 3000 watts that it can accept in short duration. Your amp can only produce 300 to 600 watts at 2 or 4 ohm respectively. So you would be greatly under powering the sub which would produce a weak unfulfilled sound. You need an amp that produces a true 1200 to 1800 watts rms. There is a great selection out there.

U HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH YOUR AMP AND YOUR SPELLING

Orion 2500D Car... • Answered on Sep 01, 2012


The 2500D has 2 "+" and 2 "-" power connections to help split the current between two smaller wires vs. one giant, hard to route wire. According the manual, for optimal performance, both "+" and "-" power connections should be utilized. They also recommend using 4AWG wire for these connections.

The 2 "+" and "-" speakers connections are only there to simplify the wiring of multiple speakers into the amp. Both "+" get tied together inside the amp, as do both "-" connections. In this case, with the dual 2 ohm voice coils on your 12" sub, you would wire one voice coil to one +/- set on the amp and the other voice coil to the other +/- set.
