Default Sub wiring

Okay so I’m getting two subs. They can either be 0.7 DVC or 1.4 DVC. I’m looking for a final load of 0.7. Can someone explain how I can get this final load?

Two subs, Dual VC, final load of 0.7. Buy the 0.7 DVC. Wire the coils in series. So +1 out to amp -1 connects to +2 and -2 out to amp. That gives you 1.4 ohms for each of the two speakers. Then wire the two speakers in parallel, so both + and both - connected to mono sub output.

IF you are looking for each woofer to be its own separate 0.7 final load, then buy the 1.4 DVC and wire the two + and the two - together and have each woofer being 0.7. Pretty sure what you are asking is the first one though.

Just want to validate that you have an amp that is .5-ohm capable, which is uncommon. 1-ohm capable isn’t as common as 2-ohm, which is pretty common. If you put on a lower impedance load than your amp is capable, it might burn up spectacularly. Just validating to make sure you don’t hurt any equipment.
