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.

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.

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!
