Technically you dont bridge subs, you bridge an amp. Anyway, to hook up the subs so that they show 2ohms,you should run them parallel...in other wordshave a wire from the + on the amp to the + of each sub, and a wire from the - of the amp to the - of each sub. in other words, you will have 2 wires coming out of the + side if the amp, and 2 wires coming out of the - side of the amp. connect one positive wire to each sub, and one negative wire to each sub. this will pull out 300watts, however, since you are using 2 subs, each sub will only see 150 watts each, What you really need is a n amp that will give you 800watts rms at 2ohms so that when you split it, you will be giving each sub 400 watts. Only 150 watts each is underpowering them, and may cause clipping. Hope that straightens things up for you. I am not the best guy on here to ask this, so you may want to wait and see if others agree with me.

chers man that did explain alot...it was ok when i had just my tsw306 dvc poineer sub with this amp..just that i was given 2 12" premier poineer subs for free and wanted to see if i could hook them up the same...using the same wiring as the dual voice coil on the two seperate single voice coil subs...and i just read that the p3001 amp puts out 2 channels at 150wrms at 4ohms...i was just trying to keep the 300w thing going..what would sound better the 2 premiers or the single w306dvc?

which premier model??


the TS306DVC pound, the premier ones are better built. The 126DVC model. They're very similar but i'd prefer two subs instead of 1
