ohms and rms power specs are gonna be needed and I assume those subs are SVC, I can't remember off hand.

you should be able to find on the box or maybe the sub if they are SVC 2ohm, 4ohm whatever or DVC 2 ohm, 4ohms whatever... and rms is how much continuous power the subs need (for the sub) and how much contiunuous power the amp pushes (for the amp)

the amount of power changes depending on the impedence (ohms) example: if the amp pushes 1000 watts rms at 2 ohm its probably going to push 500 w rms at 4 ohm or 2000 watts rms at 1 ohm.

i dont know exactly how to wire them but,,, i do nkow that say you have SVC subs that are 2 ohm... if you want to wire them to 1 ohm you wire them in parallel and if you want a 4 ohm load then you wire them in series.

when you find out if your subs are SVC or DVC (single voice coil or dual voice coil) and what the impedence is per Voice coil then post that along with the full specifications of the amp and im sure some1 can help you out.... sorry i couldnt be too much of a help
