    That amp is only stable at 2ohms,if you run it at 1ohm it will fry the amp.

    These are the wiring options for your subs.

    Now you might could buy another amp just like the one you have and then wire one sub to each amp at a 2ohm load.

    You will then need to wire each sub in parallel for a 2ohm load.

    Use option 1.

    Technically it isn't suppose to be 1 ohm stable but forget what everyone else is telling it is totally fine I'm running 4 kicker comp car 12s strapped at 1 ohm on the older version 300 zx and it is slamming harder then my shitty boss 1600 this amp is a lot stronger then people give it credit for
