    Bridging a four channel amp to two DVC 4ohm subs??

    I am a little confused how I should hook up my speakers/amp. Itll be a four channel punch with my 2 DVC 4ohm JL W3 12"s. They both RMS 250 and the amp says itll push 250x2 RMS. Would I just treat it like I was bridging two seperate amps, each to its own sub????

    the least a 4 channel amp can bridge to is 2 channels. Most likely 2 channels @ 4ohms. with only 2 4ohm subs you could ONLY use 1 channel of the 2 channel set up. This isn't a good idea. You either need 2 more 4ohm DVC subs, a 2 channel AMP or wire in 2ohms and use the amp UNBRIDGED and use 2 channels. It's up to you you could use 1 bridged channel but I don't think it's a good idea. What does anyone else think?

    First question Is the amp 2ohm stable bridged to two channels ? Most are only stable at 4ohm when bridged to two channels

    it would be 4ohm or else the the AMP would have been a 1ohm stable stereo type which is expensive an he would have stated that.

    We were posting at the same time. I just wanted my fellow enthusiast to be aware of his situation.

    you can use your AMP. Just one bridged channel @ 4ohms. Which I don't advise you do. Yea either 2 more subs, 2 channel amp or use the other channels for highs
