I'm rebuilding my Punto for next year events. I bought it 5 years ago so let's start from there:
First system including Ultimate T2 12" subwoofer, Twister TW1000 "1000W" amplifier and Hertz low end 6,5" coaxials and JVC head unit.
Then there was Pioneer DEH-P5100UB head unit, better Hertz 6,5" coaxials with Focus Acoustics Formula FX-4150 amplifier, SPL Dynamics XTR-380D2S 15" subwoofer, Focus Acoustics Formula FX-1500D 1500W amplifier and Optima 55Ah battery.
In the next step I upgraded speakers to 6,5" Hertz Energy ESK163L.4 3-way component system, made bigger and better subwoofer box, added 20Ah BSB battery and some tuning parts.
Next I changed Kenwood KDC-BT92SD head unit, added another set of 6,5" Hertz Energy ESK163L.4 3-way component system speakers to rear, changed FX-4150 amplifier to SPL Dynamics ICE-150.4 and 15" XTR subwoofer to Focus Acoustics Black MK5 15D2 15".
Then I upgraded the whole system and started to work with the interior. New system:
Optima YELLOW TOP 55Ah and 38Ah batteries
Focus Acoustics FX-2500D 2500W amplifier
Focus Acoustics Black MK5 15D2 15" subwoofers x2
SPL Dynamics ICE-150.4 amplifiers x2
Hertz ESK163L.4 component speaker systems x2
SPL Dynamics SPL-HD25T Horn Loaded Compressor Tweeters x2
Match PP72W-D subwoofers as midbasses at front x4

Previously I had a RF Prime 750.1 going to two RF 12 4DVC on stock electrical and big three.

Time for me to join the party!
The Harmon Kardon factory system in my M3 just wasn't doin' it for me so I decided to rip err all out and do some WERK!
So here's what I started with:
I didn't like any of the factory components, so I'm building it head to toe, here's a list of the main components:
Mechman 320A (to replaced the factory 120A)
One run each (power/ground) of 0 gauge OFC, front to back (stock battery is in the trunk)
Two XS Power XP3000's (jumped in on the group buy recently)
Alpine INA-W900 (As you will see later, this was quite a battle to install)
Alpine Imprint H100
Alpine Sirius Tuner
Coax signal cables
12Ga Knu Kord speaker wire for Mids/Highs
8Ga Stinger OFC for subs/highs amp
Hertz HSK130 5 1/4" Components
Rockford Fosgate Punch200DSM for the highs (OLD SCHOOL from 1993!)
DC Audio 2.0K
DC Audio XL12m2
With my previous amp, R750-1D, the wiring was wired in parallel internally and had two sets of speaker outputs (+ and -). Currently I have two 4 ohm dual voice coil subs each wired down to 2 ohms, and put into each of the pairs.
Here is the wiring diagram for my current amplifier: Link for full PDF
My question is with the upgraded amplifier I will be using, a DC 2k, do I need to follow this same routine and wire two sets of 2 ohm and it is internally paralleled.
