U have 2 choices. .5 or 2 ohm. Unless u have a 2 channel amp that will do power at 1ohm. Instead of telling u what to do. It's more simple to look up on rockford fosgates woofer wiring wizard to show you how u should wire them.

Dont go .5 ohm or else you will fry your amp and im sure u dont want that.

Only thing really to say is get an amp that will push a decent amount out at 2 ohm. Or maybe find some subs?

What kinda amp u running?

What amplifier man? Just do with 2 or get another amp, but i would seriously get new subs or amp.. If you have 12" ones with an RMS of 750, i have an underrated 1k xtant amp that supposedly can do 1500 2 and 1 ohm.
