    Mc, <br /> If the amp isn't stable @ 2ohms bridged you may be stuck with running it in stereo..If they were DVC then you would have something to work with. You best bet would probably be a small mono block probably 250 into 4ohms -500 into 2 ohms.(there are quite a few of these floating about). Just don't exceed 500 watts with 8 awg wire thats about the max for RMS current. Just a thought but a lot of Kenwood stuff as well as Sony, and Pioneer rate their stuff @ max input power on the box..So cut the power in half for a rough RMS power goal..If you do run them in stereo make sure you aren't going to clip the amp or you could cook the subs.

    Sorry,, My eyes must have been playing with me when replying to your post. I thought I saw 2x75 in there somewhere. Clipping is when you push your amp too hard and starts to distort the signal to your sub.<br /> IMO that amp is barely big enough to drive one of your subs if it were DVC.
