    1 channel amp and 2 speakers

    I just have a little question. I was wondering if you can hook up 2 speakers to a one 1-channel amp. I was thinking about buying the JBL BP1200.1 amp. If you can, how do you wireit up?

    In assuming that the subs are svc 4 ohm, run them in parallel. This can be accomplished by running the positive of the amp to the positive of speaker #1 and then from there to the positive of speaker #2. Same with the negative.

    Do it!

    wire the DVC 2 ohms in series to get a 4 ohm from each sub, then wire the subs in parallel to get a final 2 ohm load, resulting in huge bass!
