Need PBR300x2 wiring advice

OK, Im no audio guru so I thought I would ask this question here. I have a 2012 RG and Im going to install a PBR300x2 to one set of Hertz HCX165
6 1/2's and was reading about hooking up Parralell or in Series, and I have no clue. Can someone tell me the best way to hook up the HCX165's to a RF PBR300x2 ?Do I just run one speaker off each channel, or put the +'s together and the
-'s together or what ?
Thanks
Mark

Just upgrading the stock speakers, not adding a set so two HCX165 will be going in the fairing.
Thanks

need to know the ohm rating for speakers and the amp.

Someone shared this link with me.

scroll all the way to the bottom and just plug in the numbers and it will show you the best way.

I think that amp is 2ohm capable, but you need to check..

if I remember correctly that amp is not 2 ohm stable so assuming the speakers you have are 4 ohm just run them stereo. Since it sounds like you are only running one pair of speakers there is no need to any fancy wiring anyway. I have the four channel version of that amp and I love it!

Speakers and amp

The Amp is stable to 2ohms, and be run at 2ohms or 4ohms. The Hertz speakers I have are 4Ohms. So do I rin one speaker on one channel and one on the other or is there a better way to do it ?

H-Donut - I am the one that originally posted chart to another post on this forum..I found it searching other sites when you were helping me with my audio decisions. So in a way, you proxied that chart. Glad it could be of use. Started ordering my wish list for a Feb build..

I'll try and save it off to my hard drive, those charts are harder than they look to make, someone did a real nice job.

I can't tell you how many times I've tried to do one just to get frustrated and
scrap the idea. I refuse to put decent software on my pc, too much for windows to handle.
