Default Proper way to hook Two D4 Subs to Saz-1500d

Hey just got my Sundown SAZ-1500d back from repair and I snuck out during work to go put it in and I got everything hooked up but since I was realll short on time and since there was 2 speaker inputs I was confused on whether each speaker hooks up in its own spot or if it needs to be bridges. I didnt know which wiring configuration would have gotten the impedence to 1 ohm.

-There are 2 subs wired to 2ohm each
-Each sub is a Dual 4 ohm wired in parallel down to 2 ohms
-Need to know which way to hook up/configure the wires for the amp to be running at 1ohm so I can get the most power
-Does 1 speaker have it's Pos/Neg wire plug into one side (right 2 terminals) and the other speaker plug into the other side(left 2 terminals)
-Or does each positive and each negative need to be twisted together and plug positive into left channel positive and negative into right channel negative?

I'm taking my lunch break soon and would love if someone could just tell me this real quick so I can get it bumping. I heard it bump a little but when my PR1.1000 memphis amp sounded like it bumps harder and it appears the gain is turned all the way up on my SAZ-1500d..Something doesn't seem right

Speaker 1 + to amp's first +, same speakers - to amp's first -, do the same for the other sub on the other 2 +- terminals, its a mono amp, it's bridged internally

im not far away from you. Id like to hear this soon if you dont mind.

By the way, just hook them both up normally. Positive to positive, negative to negative on the amp. If there were to only be one set of terminals you would just stick both positives together and negatives together. As the above poster said, they are paralleled internally so you can use both sets of terminals for ease of wiring.

im in MD too man.lol. south calvert county though. and you can also just wire your two 2 ohm subs down to 1 ohm and just have one wire going into the amp if you'd like. in this case you can use eitther positive or negative unless otherwise specified

Yup guys I wired it up and god damn this shit is loud lol..This saz-1500d put my old Memphis PR1.1000 to shame. No disrespect to Memphis because I still think they are an awesome car audio manufacturer and I use CM cast Mojo subs lol. Also a 1000 watt amp is no comparison to any 1500 watt amp but Sundown is now my new amp Im gonna be running with. It had 4 30 amp fuses and at a stop light with a heavy bass song it would sometimes drop to 11.4 volts so I put my volt booster back in, replaced the 30 amp fuses with 4x 25 amp fuses so it was only drawing 100 amps and it still hits ,for all I know, just as much as when it was pulling 120 amps. Once I get my new battery Im gonna put 4 40 amp fuses back in.

I know the amperage that the Sundown pulls depends on how ever big of fuses I put in. Is there a significant difference in the amount of watts put out by the amp from the amp having 100,120 or 160 amperage draw? Or does having different size fuses just pull more amps from my alternator and not really output more watts to the subs

But yea Id def be down with you checking them out..With my wife always making plans for me and not letting me do me since she feels that because she took of me during chemo that I should abide by her rules, Youd have to come down to either Rockville (355 from white flint to the courthouses) or anywhere on 28 from in the courthouses all the way to Quince Orchard like around the High School,Mcdonalds etc..Pretty much I work near white flint mall and I live off 28 right after Muddy Branch Rd and before Main Street/QO High School...We could meet up anytime between 5:30pm when I get off work to 7:00pm when I gotta be home to keep my girl satisfied lol
