Class D mono block

I've been doing a lot of research and I'm still kind of lost about my wiring. I recently purchased a hifonics 1000 Watt Class-D Monoblock Amplifier, and I hooked up my 2 svc kicker comp 10's to it. What would be the correct wiring for this set up? I believe I have them in parallel right now, +and- from one sub to the amp +and- from another sub to the amp. So a total of 4 wires. Is this correct?

Sooo I would connect both the positives, run them to one of the positive outputs on the amp and connect both the negatives and run them to the negative out put on the amp which would leave me with only a positive and a negative wire connected to the amp!

exactly! This way you have only 2 wires from the box to the amp.

Also, dont be confused if the amp has two paris of +ve and -ve, just connect to one pair, those are all ready connected in parallel internally.

So what is the way I have them now? And that would wire them at a 2oh
Load correct? What difference would it make? And the settings of the lpf, hpf, gain, subsonic and bass booster, what would be a general setting? Or is it more of the ear adjustment?

You also have them in parallel at a 2 ohm load.

lpf on amp generally set to 80 - 50 depending upon your system as a whole.
gain- there are a few ways to set the gain you should read up on it, its important.
subsonic - set to a few Hz below tuning freq of enclosure if box is a ported design, if it's sealed then turn it off.
bass booster - turn off or down.

So would I want to re-wire them Or would it be the same? And do I only want set the settings on amp or on the deck? Or a combination of both?

It's up to you if you want to re-wire it, less wire looks cleaner (IMO), if the deck has a lpf for the sub woofer then set it to off and use the amp lpf, if the lpf on the deck cannot be set to off then use the deck filter, dont use them both unless you cant.

subsonic, gain and bass boost needs to be set in either case.

Yeah the way I have the wires running now I completely gutted the cab and ran it under my carpet haha it wouldn't be that big of a deal to redo it and I read somewhere else online that the subsonic filter should be turned down or even off in a sealed box?
