To run at 2 ohms for single sub connected to a single amp

Just wire it in parrallel....so positive from amp channel to first positive on the woofer then run a second cable from the 1st coils positive to the 2nd positve coil....

For the negatives do the same...amp to first neg coil....the from first neg coil to the 2nd :P and there ya have it...see if i can get a pic..
