    Ok so I have 2 8" 's hooked up to there own channel each. Now I only have one Sub channel, Could I hook the negative from sub1 to the positive of sub2 then the postive from sub 1 and the negitave from sub2 into the "sub" channel?

    No. That will double the resistance on the one channel, and the amp could burn out from the extra demand for amperage on that channel.

    yes, that is called wiring in "series" and will double the impediance... So two 4ohm subs would show an 8ohm load to the amp. This is safe.

    I think a ban is in order. That is a bold-faced lie.
