Need a bit more info. What kind of subs, SPL or SQ, how much space you willing to lose, and what kind of music you listen too? Spare tire wll would likely need to be built up a bit to give some extra space for 4 10's? IIRC you barely get 2 cubes out of it when the baffle sits flush.

ok i got myself a box layout. now i just need to know how to wire all these suckers up to one amp its a MTX audio thunder1004. the amp does 90w rms/ch x 4 into 4ohms, 180w rms/ch x 4 into 20 ohms, 360w rms/ch x 2 bridged into 40 ohms and 500w dynamic power x 2 bridged into 4 ohms. and now my 4 speakers are the same they are pioneers Ts-w255dvc they are dual 4ohm voice coils double bobine moble 4 ohm they are 700w max 350w nom and 2/8 ohm impendance and extreme- grave 25cm pour caisson. all that was on the back of the sub. they are all 10's. im a put each one in a 1.0cf box and hopefully get them all in the trunk area lol. let me know on the wireing plz there not highend speakers just want to wire them all so they all work the same and have some boom.

Run your amp in 4 channel mode and wire the subs to 2 ohms each. Your gonna have to split your sub input into four though to get all the channels a signal so you may have to bring your gain up a bit more to compensate for any losses. You'll use the same amoutn of powere wether your in 2 channel or 4. Set the amp up with the LP filter on and then you'll have to adjust it up or down (should be a pot with a frequency range on it to adjust) to suit your liking.

If your talking about the subs then you will want to connect pos to pos and neg to neg and then to the amp. If your saying that your amp only has a place for 4 wires then it sounds like a 2 channle amp to me.

You can't run that amp at 2 ohms to two channels. You must run it in 4 channel mode at 2 ohms or two channel at 4 ohms. Front and rear don't matter unless your running front and rear speakers. For all intensive purposes you have 4 channels to work with. Since yours are all going to the same spot it doesn't matter. The amp (or subs) won't know the difference....they only care about getting the signal. Split your Sub out to 4 and run them to the inputs on the amp. If you have two remote inputs then you will need to split your remote wire to two as well.
