Hi. I just got two Infinity Reference 1232W dual 4-ohm subwoofers, and I was planning on bridging my PPI A300 (the white Art Series) to run 300x1 into them. I wired both voice coils up in parallel to make a 4 ohm load. When I did this and powered it up the impedence light came on immediately and it sounded like crap and then I shut it off before I blew anything up. I was told this amp could run 300W rms bridged mono. Anyone have any suggestions?

How exactly did you wire them?

In order to get a 4 ohm load with two DVC 4 ohms subs, you need to parallel the VCs on each sub, then series the two subs together.

Are you sure you didn't just parallel all 4 voice coils? That would be a 1 ohm load, which that amp probably cannot handle after being bridged.

I wired it up according to diagram number two on this webpage.

the A300 is stable to 4 ohms when bridged.
you have two 4 ohm DVC subs, right?
wire the coils of each sub in series, then wire both subs to the amp in parallel and you should have your 4 ohm load.
