How is the best way to wire these subs to the sub output of the amp?

Equipment I have:
* Two - CDT HD 800 CF 8" subs
* ARC Audio - XDi 805 amp
* One sub box with separate sealed enclosures for each sub (voloume of EACH box .46 Cubic feet.

I am a good carpenter but a novice at wiring so if I could get some detailed instructions it would be awesome.

Thanks

did you down load and read the spec sheets and or manuals for these products? what do they say? what impedance are the subs? single or double voice coil? what is the power rating of your amp? can it handle 1 or 2 ohms? Do some homework first please.

Thanks guys!!!!

I have vast cabinet and construction experience but this is the first sub cabinet I have built by spending many hours on this sight reading all the GREAT info.

Ya'LL have taught me a great deal!! I built this cabinet using 3/4" MDF, wood screws, Tite II glue and clamps.

This is a combination storage bins and sub boxes with amp rack, all that is left to do is upholster it.
