Okay, I have an Mtx Thunder 2300X And it says that it is rated at 150x2 @4(ohms) And 300x2 at 2(Ohms) Well, to lower the resistance in a setup you wire the speakers parallel...so it will look kinda like this:

But the JL Audio website says that this is 1.5(Ohms)...Is this an okay setup...or what is the right way to set it up without blowing the speakers? I thank you for your help.

Sorry, here is the image that I was trying to do up there.

Depends what ohm rating are the subs your using?

Your amp has to be capable of 1 ohm operation to run your subs at 1.5 ohms (As per the example). That setup shows two DVC 6 ohm subs. What impedance are your subs?

Btw, I noticed you wrote in your original:
"Is this an okay setup...or what is the right way to set it up without blowing the speakers"

If your impedance is too low, you're going to blow up your AMP, not your speakers. The less resistance you're running means more current, which in turn creates more heat. Your amp is rated as to how much power it can handle at a certain impedance.

I told you I was new :-)

The impedance for both subs is "Dual 6(Ohm)".--Quoted from their website.

So I guess my real question is, what is the best way to wire this to not blow my amp, or what is the best amp to get?
Once again thank you for all your help.

wire the two subs in parallel. that gives you 3 ohms per sub.

then plug one sub into one channel and the other sub into the other channel. that will give you this.

roughly 200 watts x2 @ 3 ohm.

if you are bridging your amp. then you will have to run it @ 4 ohm or higher. in that case i would do the same setup except run your speakers in series to the amps bridged channel, giving you 6 ohms but cutting your power by 25%.

option 1 would be your best bet
