Little Sound System Help Please

I'm a bit new to the whole subwoofer thing and had a few questions. I came across a good deal on 2 alpine swr-1222d subs and I am a bit lost on how to wire them. I think I need a mono channel amp with about 1000 at 4 ohms but after that I a little lost on how to wire the amp to the subs so it works right. I understand the wires to the sub from the battery and the radio...thats simple but the rest is a little eh. So any help would be wonderful.

12volt.com has what you want

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

Wire your radio to your amp. This will be remote wire and plugs(similar to a/v cables just without video). Wire your speakers to the amp. Ground the amp and run a power wire to battery and please use a fuse about 6-8" off the battery terminal.

He was asking on the different ways to run the 2x sub wiring to manipulate the OHM load

Depending on what year they are will tell you their RMS wattage, that's what you match the amp to. So 1000 watt @2ohms and 750 @ 4ohms etc,etc. If they are the 13 and up they r 1000watt RMS, anything older is 600. So 1200 rms to 2000 rms go to hi you run a higher chance of toasting them!

Series parallel them on a mono amp so you will be at 2 ohms final load!
