Your amp will likely be more efficient with higher ohms, but wont make as much power as lower ohm load

You've been asking the same question in 3 different post. Check out: http://www.the12volt.com or rockford fosgate woofer wiring wizard, they will show you how to wire the subs to whatever load you're trying to achieve.

Parallel speaker wiring combines all speakers (+) positive speaker leads together, and all (-) negative speaker leads together.
The diagram of this would look like a ladder. . Parallel circuits are the simplest of electrical circuits to wire because adding a
speaker is as easy as connecting the new speakers (+) positive lead to the positive speaker wires of the other speakers and
the (-) negative lead to the negative of the other speakers in a system.

Pros and Cons of Parallel wiring:
Parallel circuits are the simplest electrical circuit to wire. As can be seen in the diagrams below, adding additional speakers is
as easy as connecting all the speakers (+) positive leads to the (+) positive speaker output from the amp, and the (-) negative
leads the (-) negative speaker output from the amp.

Series speaker wiring links all speakers together in a chain. The amplifier will send an audio signal out through the (+) speaker
output into the first speaker; but for the audio signal to return to the amp to complete the electrical circuit, the audio signal
must travel down the chain, through each speaker, and out the last speaker to the (-) negative speaker output on the amp.

Pros and Cons of Series wiring:
Because the resistances of the speakers are added together, the
“pro” to series wiring is that you can connect more speakers
to an amplifier safely. For advanced installs with multiple speakers, series speaker wiring can be used to increase the
resistance of the “equivalent” or “overall” resistance that the amplifier sees. This allows the amplifier to run cooler and more

efficiently. This becomes a critical issue when trying to “bridge” an amplifier to get the amplifiers highest power output

To answer your question... no. It doesn't make a lick of difference. 1k to a sub in series is exactly the same as 1k to a sub in paralell. Or any other power for that matter. And at any ohm load.

ive had a dual 4ohm and a dual 1 ohm both wired to 2ohm and then that bridged my amp down to 1ohm and the dual 4ohm sub that was wired in series i believe moved about 1/2inch more that i could tell to the eye...so i think there is a difference in wiring...
