is that amp stable at 1ohm or 1.5ohm? if it is then wire them in Parallel / Parallel to 1.5ohm if not the only other way to wire them is in series/parellel at 6ohms! there ya go man hope it HELPS you out!

ok I just looked up the specs on that amp and all I can tell you is your not gonna be happy with it. Go out and get yourself a mono amp thats 600-1200 watts rms for those subs. You need a amp that is stable down to 1.5ohm and puts out good power. Try a jl 500/1 or a kicker 600.1 or jbl 600.1 or 1200.1. Sell that amp or use it for your mids and highs.

If that is the amp I think it is, it isn't a 1500 watt amp, and it isn't stable at 1 ohm. Can you post the specs on the amp? I have the rockford p8002 and it is rated 800 watt's rms times 1 at 4 ohms for example!

its a decent amp if you are gonna be running at 4ohms. why dont you go get another sub and you can run them all in series parellel at 4ohms with 500 watts. not enough power in my opinion but do what you can.
