 Wiring Alpine Type R's...

 I'd think after all these years of messing with 'sounds' that I'd have known the proper way to wired my newly acquired Type R 1242D's.

 I've never seen 4 wire terminals on the back of a sub before, so I'm not sure the BEST way to wire these up. They're the 12" subwoofer (4Ω + 4Ω)

 I have also acquire an Alpine MRP 1000 watt 'mono' channel amp.

What's the best way to wire these up? I have them hooked up already, and if there's a better way to wire these, I know that one of you guys would know. 

 I'd appreciate the feedback.

if you want a lower impedance and more power, wire the subs as parallel wiring. Positive to positive, negative to negative. This puts the load to 1 ohm.

as series wiring, it'll raise the impedance but create less of a strain on your amp

Rockford Fosgate has a nice Woofer Wiring Wizard...easier to configure than Crutchfield's site
