sub wiring help

Ok audio pros need help tuning my sound system. It is what it is and I cant buy new stuff so Im going to work with what I got.

So what I got is a power akoustic BAMF 2600/2 amp for 2 shallow mount Audiobahn AMW120H (12" 4ohm dvc) I basically need to know the best way to wire these. right now the box is a Ford F-250/ F-350 Supercrew Cab 99-07 Dual BTS Subwoofer Box with dual wiring ports/split box.

so whats the best way to wire this setup? single voice channel, parallel 2 ohm load , drill a hole and connect the speakers and bridge the amp?

To many choices need guidance.
thanks

I'd run them both individually to the amp, then bridge the amp and make it a 1 ohm stable load....I had two jbl gt 12s wired in 1 ohm stable on a 1000 watt amo in my Nissan altima and they hit HARD

Mine were DVC SUBS also...but that shouldn't make that big of a difference.

I was looking at different options like that but I dont think that will safely work with my setup. the amp is only 2 ohm stable. Ive been reading that if you only use one voice coil you loose much of the subs capablity.

Going by the specs you posted, wiring your setup like that will get the most power from your amp
