    difference between mono and 2 channel amps..?

    can someone explain to me what's the difference between a 1-Channel Mono amp and an amp with 2 channels or more?

    i have 2 15" kicker subs with a 1-channel hifonics amp
    so would i need a 2-channel amp?

    i'm retarded about this topic, please advice me, thanks in advance for your help.

    no, you should use a mono amp for subs. The human ear can't detect where the low frequencies are coming from. Use 2 channel amps for speakers (coaxial or components)

    you can bridge 2 channel amps to run mono. . .

    use what you want as long as it works

    thanks, but i wasn't sure if i would need a 2000w amp (http://www.millionbuy.com/hifbxi2008.html) since my subs are 2000watts? or do i just need an amp that hits the sub's 1000w rms like this rockford amp?

    (hifonics 2000w amp above is cheaper lol) just asking tho.. i'm still gona go with the rockford amp if aiming for the RMS power is better

    also, what about this amp for the RMS power of the sub..
    http://www.millionbuy.com/crup10001.html

    .. if that's a bad choice, can someone reccommend a 1000w amp that's a little cheaper than the rockford one above?
    thanks again dudes

    It's still a mono block amp, and only actually has 1 channel, they just put 2 sets of connection terminals on the amp to make wiring a pair of subs easier!
