Question about bridging 2 amps
I have 2 12" infinity reference subwoofers rated at about 300W rms in a sealed box. I also have a 4250MTX class D amplifier. It is all hooked up and has been for a few months. well my friend has the same amp as I do and wants to get another amp. He is offering me the amp for $125. I have an extended warrenty on my amp so since they are the same it could apply to both amps. I was wondering if it a good idea to bridge the 2 amps together and connect them to the woofers if it is possible. The amp is rated at 300W rms at 2ohms, so i figured if I bridge them together i would 600W (300W a piece). I know I would need 4 guage wires from the battery and a distributor block to split them to 8 gauge if I want to wire them both up.
The second idea would be to run each subwoofer to each amp and see how that works. However, that is only 4 ohm so I wouldn't be getting to much extra power and wouldn't be worth the money to replace the cables.
I been cruising the forums for a while now and I decided to register finally so this is my first post. You guys seem pretty knowledgable about this stuff so I would really like your opinions.
