    Boston gt 42 1 ohm stable?

    I want to run 2 channels on my gt42 to highs and was wondering if I could bridge the other 2 channels down to a1 ohm load without hurting it

    If not that's ok, just wondering if I could get a hair more power to the sub

    Thanks!

    I'd like to know this too. Theres a GT 22 local for a decent price. Ive read somewhere where somebody ran theirs @ 1 daily and it held up fine. But it would be nice to get confirmation from someone who actually knows the amps.

    They are 1 ohm stable, but not when bridged. Can do 2 bridged though.
