What kind of subs and amp are you using? How many subs? Amp channels? RMS power ratings?

What amp do you have
if you wire parallel you will drop it from 4 to 2ohm, and if you have a 2 channel stereo amp, it might not be 2 ohm mono stable

if you wire the woofers in parallel, they will hit your ***** in parallel with mad dbz. Series will yield a sequential hit to one of the *****, but with 1/2 mad dbz.
