Heres another question from me for you experts. I wired my dvc sub parallel. It works but I have a question. To wire it parallel I basically took speaker wire and connected the negative terminals together on the speaker, and positive terminals together on the speaker. Then i took another wire and connected it to one set of the terminals and ran it to the amp. Is this wrong? Ive seen diagrams with running a set of wires from each voice coil terminal then joining them together to the wire going to the amp. So is one of these ways more efficient then the other. Or is it the same ish? I just wanna know before i go through the trouble of taking the sub out of my box and rewiring. Thanks for all the help so far!

same principle, it's just by using the jumpers like in the left you reduce the amount of wire you have to use. I used the method on the right.
