    The brz fell off at 25 hz, i can play 23 hz with the apsm

    Would you recommend the Boston Acoustics over the AP and SSL?

    Correction: NM It's bridgeable.

    I'm assuming that's not really what I want.

    You bridge the amp to run it sorta like a mono. So, yea, that would work for you.

    Bridging the two channels basically makes it into a mono channel amp. It would be like 400 watts x 1 @ 4 ohms which is perfect for you.

    You connect the positive of your sub to one channel and the negative to the other.

    Re: I have the sub, need recommendation on amplifier!

    How exactly would I 'bridge' the amp? How is it wired differently?
