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.

Do you have tight bass or loud bass? I have a small sealed box so Im not hoping for to much but thats why I got two instead of one

Well, now I have two sealed boxes with 12s in them in my truck now. Before, I was into competition, so I had a bandpass box for two tens. I cut out 12 inch holes in the top of it and removed the inner boards that mounted the ten inch subs. I turned the 12s up side down and had them firing into the box and then the ports on the box made the bass explode. It was a third order bandpass box, with the trunk used as part of the box.
