Default Sub Wiring Help

I have a dual 2 ohm 15" Fi Q and would like a diagram or a video on how to wire it down to 1 ohm. My amp is the Hifonics 1608d so its 1 ohm stable. Someone help me. I am kinda new to the whole subwoofer wiring thing. I have only wired 1 system ever and it was 2 4 ohm SVC subs.

I was wondering on my amp there is 2 (+) and 2 (-) for the speaker wire to go into. When I wire the sub do I put the positive speaker wire in 1 of the (+) and then in the (-) right next to the positive.

Or you could connect one positive to each positive on teh amp and same with the negative, the amp is a mono so there's really just one channel, but it's setup that way to make it easier to wire up.

if it was anyone besides nizzy i would agree. but he gave you the benefit of the doubt and only gave you a 5 pter when it should be considered a perma ban. nizzy isnt a nazi mod, hes one of the laid back ones. although i do not support all of the staffs decisions this is one staff that i do support 100%. just let it go and move on. it will expire
