Hey guys, I'm running a pair of Zed Audio "The Deuce" amps in my setup. One is for my front stage and one is bridged mono to a pair of subwoofers (dual 4 ohm voice coils on each sub wired in series and then the two subs in parallel to make a 4 ohm load to the amp). I am questioning whether running the amp mono or stereo is better for the amp. As I understand it, and this is probably a vast oversimplification, when the amp is bridged mono, this essentially uses one channel for + and one channel for -, correct?
The amp does support 2 ohm loads in stereo mode (not mono). It also is rated to take a higher fuse rating when it is being run in 2 ohm stereo (80 amps) vs. 4 ohm mono (60 amps). With that in mind, which mode do you think will give me higher SPL output from my subs and be easier on the amp?
Let me know what you think. Looking forward to hearing from the peanut gallery on this one!
