    Wiring two 4ohm subs into 2 channel amp missing channel

    I'm in the process of hooking up my two Sony Xplod 10" 4ohm 1200 watt subs into my old school Pioneer 760 watt 2 channel amp. The problem is that two of the screws are missing out of the amp. Is it ok if I hook it up like this (below)? I'm not sure if this two channel amp will support the 2 ohm mono operation since the two 4 ohm subs wired in parallel will present a 2 ohm mono load to the amp. Thanks for any help.

    Is the worse case scenario that it will go into protect mode? Or will I be fine?

    Re: Wiring two 4ohm subs into 2 channel amp missing channel

    that amp will almost immediately shut down @ 2 ohms
    i use two of those in my 95 Grand am to run the 6x9's in the rear deck, one for each channel
    The rms power on those is only 380x1 @ 4 ohms

    Re: Wiring two 4ohm subs into 2 channel amp missing channel

    your amp is probably hot as hell and slowly killing itself. bridging a 2-ohm load on a 2 channel [STRIKE]sony[/STRIKE] pioneer amplifier is not a good idea. If it was me I would wire the subs in series and bridge the 8-ohm load, not as much power but at least its safe.
