    Can I run this amp at 2 ohm mono?

    I have run my two 12" SVC Boston subs on an orion 275SX amp bridged 2ohm mono for ten years without a problem. I know these amps are severly underated and can handle that. I have since sold that amp and currently have an Orion 900.2. It's rated at 225x2 @4ohms and 900x1 @4ohms bridged. I would like to run those subs on this amp. 225W per sub is not enough. The only other option is for me to bridge the amp and run the speakers in parallel. I guess that will give each sub about 900W and run my amp at 2ohms. Now for all you stereo gurus, do you think I can run this amp bridged to my two subs if I keep the gain way down. I really don't need them to get 900 watts each but I don't see any other configuration for this amp. So what do you all think. An educated guess would be best. Thanks yall.

    all u can do is try and see how it works at 2ohms,see if it clips cuts off,overheats.if not then just play it modertly for a short while.and ur subs will not be seeing 900 watts a piece,maybe 550 a piece.
