to me it looks right!!! my Mecp book does not give a math equation for series/paralell wiring....

Yes thank you it looked right to me but i figured i should get some extra support here. i dont know if i will do the deal but maybe we will have to see. either i will get the alt or some 10"s!!!

Dude, what are you doing? Quit playing! What amp would you use to power 8 DVC's on 1 channel?

my atomic refurbed 1500.1 and i was toying with getting 8 of those x series 10" subs from fiaudio during their black friday sale which would have ran me like 500.00ish...... i dont know cause i still need an alternator and i am starting to think that i need an amp.....
