What amplifier are you powering them with?

Are they dual 4ohm?

i will be powering them with a AQ1200D

and i think all SDC 12's are 4ohm

It has a set of white and red wire on each side of the sub.


just looked at site says D4 im assuming that mean 4 ohm

the AQ1200d is 1 ohm stable (1ohm 1200 watts),

the subs are :

1200 peak music
600 continous power


so you will be just at the limit of the subs (IMO) at 1ohm.


you can do em at 4 ohm.

wait the 1200d amp will power these correct? There site says this will power a pair of sdc 12's good.

Also, what happens when my box only has 2 plug things on each side?

yes your amp will power them. take the two positive{red} leads of each speaker and connect it to the positive {red} terminal of your terminal cup. Do the same with the negative {white} leads. then use 12gauge or thicker wire from the terminal cup to the amplifier.

Thanks, so a good way is to twist both red wires together? and both white?
