You can put in acoustic matting material which will help it, or you can even put in strips of Dynamat which is the same sort of thing but more expensive, either way will help it

How are you going to run them, in parallel or series?

Depending on your power output from the amp, you can make it more power efficient towards your subs.

Are you planning to run both of your subs from this amp and other Speakers or just the subs only?

What amp are you using anyway?

A 4channel amp for just 2subs, bit of a waste i have to say, if that's all your powering from it.

You should of picked a 2channel amp, maybe even a 1channel amp, both of these are designed to power subs like you got.

You should wire it in parallel then, will make it sound a whole lot louder, just make sure you check the spec of your amp so it can handle this, not all amps can do this.

Wiring in parallel means, your wiring the all terminals in a link

Example:

AMP SUB (1) SUB (2)

(+)------(+)------(+)

(-)------(-)-------(-)

Keep the questions coming....

From looking at the spec of that amp, even at 2channels its only giving out 2x250w @ 4ohms

What subs are you using for this anyway?

Well just fit both subs in, and wire it up for 2channel output.

If you decide to change to a 2 or 1 channel amp later, then you can then wire it up parallel, and hopefully it will be alot louder
