Default wiring juggernaut 15 with jl500/1 question

My juggernaut 15 is dual voice coil. And the jl 500/1 amp is 1.5 oh stable. How should I wire it for most bass?
One coil pos to other coil neg. Then other pos to pos on amp same for other neg?

The MMats Juggernaut 15 has dual voice coil, Re=1.4 Ohms each. With a 1.5 Ohm stable amp you could drive a single coil for most output. Depending on the box you're gonna use you could even risk wiring them in parallel, but you can only do that if you use just the frequency range around the peak in the impedance curve... I don't think you're really experienced, so don't do that!

I just read in the manual (http://mobile.jlaudio.com/pdfs/Slash_amps/500_1_MAN.pdf) that the amp is capable of producing 500W RMS from 1.5 to 4 ohms. So, wire them in series!! BUT: Read page 14 carefully to get the most out of your amp <--

Connect the + of coil 1 to the - of coil 2. Then connect the - of coil 1 to the - of your amp and the + of coil 2 to the + of your amp.

Page 14 when you look at the page numbers on the pages. It's the left side of page 8 of the PDF.
