Wiring lvl 3 DC 15's

Recommended Posts

I'm going to start off by saying this is my first audio build and have a question on wiring the 2 subs.  I know how to wire them to be at 1 ohm but what's the best way to wire them?  The reason I ask is I'm not seeing how two wires are going to fit into the connector on the sub.  I originally bought 8 gauge wire based on what a friend told me to get but it looks like it's barely going to fit in the connector, let alone two pieces of it.  Should I go with smaller wire or what do you guys suggest?  I'm not new to wiring and automotive work, just new to audio.

It's always difficult to fit two wires into those terminals.  You'd probably be okay with short runs of 12 gauge OFC wire in the terminals, and then connect them to your 8 gauge with a large wire nut.  At least that's what I've done before without any problems.
