Yes run your subwoofers parallel. Hook two sets of wires together at the terminal in your box. If you have no box terminal, you hook the amplifier up directly to one set of voice coils with both sets connected.

The subwoofers will be fine, almost all 2 ohm amplifiers will handle a 4 ohm load just fine. I did a quick search online for your amplifier and couldn’t find the specs, reply if you have manufacture link. You can never go wrong with an amplifier from Kicker! It will also match very nicely with your ...

It could be hard wired but you would need a spare aftermarket connector. Or do some disassembling / solder job on your deck which you probably don’t want to do.

Sorry, you can’t hook them both up at a 2 ohm load. Each subwoofer can run at 2 or 8 ohms. You could run two subwoofers at 4 ohm.

Sounds like you may have your RCA wires plugged into the front output on your deck. They should be plugged into the rear output. Both front and rear outputs are located in the back of the deck.

Does the amplifier power on? Can you turn the volume back up from zero with the remote wire plugged in?

If your amplifier doesn’t have more then one set of RCA hook-ups, then is doesn’t have RCA outputs. You can use a splitter which will decrease the power. You could also use speaker outputs from your deck instead of RCA input, or you could use a crossover to get more RCA outputs.

Sounds like you may be trying to draw too low of an ohm load from your amplifier. Check the Parallel / Series Diagrams to the left for more information on ohm loads. How many ohms is your subwoofer’s voice coil(s) and how many does it have? How many ohms can your amplifier handle, are you running it...

The illuminate wire isn’t for the main light functioning. Try and hook the black wire from the deck directly to the metal of your car. Also check the fuse inside your CD deck.
