Default noob with questions

Im new here. Read a cpl hundred post looking for this answer to no avail, so here goes. I have a 225 hcca with 2 12" orion subs. I know how to bridge with the orange and yellow/black wire. What i dont understand is how to get 2 ohms or 1 ohm or even .5 ohms. I know the amp is supposed to be .5 capable. Any help or explanation of this would be much appreciated.

Hi. Hooking up the speakers in parallel doubles the resistance. (So, two 4 ohm subs together gives you 2 ohms). Go to Lalena.com and read about resistors--that should help explain it.

Be sure you're following the amp manual as far as bridging connections go.

If you have a two channel amp and two subs, you can also just hook them up to each channel separately. I'm not a big sub guy, so I wouldn't know what would sound best in that department.

See if this page helps:

You'll need to know the impedance of each voice coil and the number of voice coils per speaker.
