To answer your question DJ I am using the Infinity 1262w's which are dual 4ohm voice coil.
As it turns out I had them wired wrong, well half wrong. I had each sub correctly wired to 2ohm's, but then wired them in parallel to 1ohm. After I cut the grass I grabbed the ole multi meter and gave them a measure and that was how I figured it out. I figured it was easier to wire each driver to 8ohm, and then parallel a pair to 4ohm. Some quick rewiring and I was back in business!
While I am posting some pics, I will just throw them all up real fast. First off, all of the subs are still dirty and need to be wiped down. I also did not download any pics off of my camera yet, so all you get is cellphone shots.
Just one of the wires for a front sub. I am going to change out the banana plugs, and also put some tech flex over the cable later.
Three of the 4 drivers wired up (incorrectly). This is when each was wired as a 2ohm load.

Gotta have some racing on while I work! This is the NMCA/NMRA Superbowl in Joliet IL. I would suggest checking it out tomorrow on BangShift.com Great racing!
Close up shot of the speakon terminal on a box. I countersunk them all which turned out awesome IMO!
Front subs, that was the credits for John Wick. More on that in a minute.
Couple shots of the rear subs. These have 90 degree speakon's so I could get them closer to the wall.
Now on to the wordy part of this post
I have to start out by saying I am shocked that everything survived being turned all the way up at 1ohm! Yes, I had the inuke cranked, the receiver was +5 on the sub channel, and the volume was at 0 with the EOT clip, and it all survived. Sure the amp was going into protection, but it pounded the hell out of those subs for a few seconds first and was coming back on and off for a bit as the clip went on. Impressive to say the least, but I am happy I didn't damage anything, and wouldn't recommend trying that.
After I got that all sorted out and got all 4 hooked up and wired right it was time to try that again. The wife was down in the basement, and I decided maybe I should take it a bit easier this time. Subs were both set to 0, and I ran the receiver at -5. The inuke was set to my normal volume setting for the front, and I just did the same for the rear which I know is technically a bit low at the MLP. Cue the EOT clip and it was so violent that **** started falling out of my lights and my wife freaked out!! The dog was scared outta his mind (laying in his bed shaking) and I had the biggest smile on my face imaginable
I do feel bad about scaring my dog though. I have no idea how loud it was, but it was pretty damn impressive for a ~$600 set up.
I am going to TRY and run REW tomorrow, but we do have some stuff going on. Since it was kind of late, and the wife was already hanging out in the basement with me (all day) I decided to watch a movie rather than start running any set up. So I dialed the subs back some more and put on John Wick since the wife had never seen it. We both really enjoyed it, and I was really happy with the tactile feed back I was getting on some of the larger hits. Overall it seemed really smooth and even, but the mic will tell for sure tomorrow. I know I have each sub located in its best possible configuration and location based on running only one, so hopefully I am pretty close already.
I don't think I will have any problem getting a nice flat curve with these and some EQ (minimal probably). I am hoping I can get them pretty flat from around 10htz to maybe 100htz, and I would like to see 120db when I crank em up. Like I said though we will have to see what the mic says rather than bench racing
More to come!
