    Choosing an Amp

    Any help would be appreciated. I currently have 3 alpine 10's running off of one merlon amp. i know the amp is more than likely crap, but i got it cheap. anyway i have the three speakers bridged into each other but only one actually has a decent output. do i need a three channel amp or what do i have to do to have the three subs put out the same sound? any help would be appreciated

    Re: Choosing an Amp

    im not sure honestly. is the merlin amp a monoblock or a mutli channel? also check the connections on the "sub jumps/bridges"..

    that could be it.... again also check the connections.

    all the subs are in the same box right? and the same series of subs?
