I am going to buy two JL 10W3v3 (300W-500w)subs and a JL 500/1 amp. I thought i had this all figured out in my head but now im confused and i want to make sure that im doing this right. The subs come in either 2,4, or 8 ohms and im not sure which to buy or whether to go parralel or series on the connection. What do you guys recommend?
