i take it one sub is a 15" and the other is a 12". you should get two subs the same size and brand first. if you use two different sup types it will sound like crap and if you use two different sub sizes they will each hit different bass freq's and you will lose one zone of freq. but if you insist on keeping them you can wire the voice coils in series and the subs in parallel or vise versa to produce a 4ohm load (considering they are 4ohm voice coils) hope i was of some help. if you do want new subs i have two 15's for sale for 250 with a box.

Haha...two subs...no. You have a 15 you want to run off a V12 amp...correct. Depending on the impedence of each voice coil of the sub, you can wire it several different ways. If the sub has dual 4 ohm voice coils, you can either have a 2 ohm or 8 ohm total impedence (parallel or series the voice coils). You may not want to run the 1002 at 2 ohms...and 8 ohms is too high of an impedence. If they are dual 2 or 8 ohm voice coils then...u can figure it out...let me know if you still need help. If they are 4 ohm coils...you might want to get another sub that way u can wire the two together to get a total 4 ohm impedence which is optimal for your amp.
