need to wire my two aw1208t 3000watt audiobahn subs with my planet audio vx-2200d amp. The amp is Max Power (1 Ohms) : 2250W X 1
Max Power (2 Ohms) : 1750W X 1
RMS Power (2 Ohms) : 1200W X 1
RMS Power (4 Ohms) : 800W X 1

The subs are 1500 Watts RMS / 3000 Watts MAX Each!
.: Huge 280 oz Double Stacked Strontium Magnets!
.: Precision Heavy Duty Cast Flame Basket
.: Aluminum Cone
.: Dual 3" ASV 4 Layer 2 Ohm Voice Coils
.: For 1 or 4 Ohm Operation

What is the best way? I was told to wire it wire in series-parallel connection to get a 2ohm load. If this is right how do you do it with the mono amp? both subs have dual voice coil.

wire the VC's in seires for 4 ohms for each sub, then the subs in parallel to drop it down to 2 ohms.

Would it be better if I did parallel to parallel because it says dual 4 ohm subs to 1 ohm and the amp is 1 ohm? I might not be reading this right. On that website DVC drivers with Voice Coils in Parallel / Parallel
Dual-6 Ohm Subwoofers: 1.5 Ohms
Dual-4 Ohm Subwoofers: 1 Ohm
Dual-2 Ohm Subwoofers: 0.5 Ohm
Dual-1.5 Ohm Subwoofer: 0.38 Ohms

brad only way you can connect two of those subs to that amp is in a series-parallel. 1200wrms for two of those subs will be way underpowering it. it will not sound good at all. trust me.

only going to get .5 or 2ohm loads. those are dual 2 according to your specs, buy another amp and run one to each@1ohm

Okay! The subs are 1 and 4 ohm. According to that chart, if you wire two subs at dual 4 ohm you can bring them down to a 1 ohm I think. Then the amp can handle a 1 ohm. I really do not understand all of this, but am I right?

you have dual 2 ohms subs you cant wire them for a one ohm load unless you wire only one to the amp but is your amp stable at 1 ohm is then the question .. that is saying that you can wire two dual 4 ohms subs together an get a 1 ohm load but urs are dual 2 ohms so there is not a way to wire both together to get a 1 ohm load
