when testing ohm polarity does not matter but i always test them properly red to positive black to neg.
as for wiring you need to know what ohm sub you have so you can wire it properly according to the amp you are going to use.
for example, if its a dual 2 ohm you can wire to get 2 or 4 ohm load dipending on what amp you have most amps these days are 1 ohm stable some are only 2 ohm stable .
also are you using 1 amp for each sub or 1 amp per sub?
when you are building a system alot of info is needed the better you prepare for the install the smoother and more reliable it will be .
for example what kind of power on single or dual amps? alt, wires, power/ground, any extra batt?
not trying to confuse you but i see people trying to run a 3k amp on stock electrical on 4 guage wire.
also level 4 subs is not an entry level so keep in mind each sub takes 1000 watts rms and thats propably the least amount of power to get some kind of decent sound out of them each .
