Do you have to wire both voice coils?
Your installer will need to wire both voice coils to your amplifier to ensure that the subwoofer maintains its power rating and functions the way the manufacturer designed it.
Is it better to wire speakers in series or parallel?
What about power? As a general rule, parallel speakers are louder than series speakers. That’s because: Wiring speakers in series increases the total speaker impedance (Ohms) load, decreasing how much electrical current (amps) can flow.
Should I wire speakers in series or parallel?
If both speakers are 8 ohms or more, then the speakers can normally be wired in parallel. If the speakers are less than 8 ohms, then to be safe, you should wire them in series.
