    Peak Power Handling: 1,500 watt
    RMS Power Handling: 750 watts

    kole audio qx2-980
    18 dB bass boost;Freq resp: 10 Hz–30 KHz;S/N ratio: 98 dB;THD: 0.02%;Full MOSFET power supply;PWM circuitry;Full selectable crossover: Hi/Full/Low;3-way protection circuit;2? stable stereo;Tri-mode capable;Platinum-plated RCA connectors;Chrome end caps
    2-channel
    4? RMS: 220W x 2

    A few questions..
    Should I bridge my amp?

    Will parallel,series, or bridging harm my sub or amp?
    Thanks

    Not really a good match. Most you'll send your sub is 280wrms @ 2 ohms on one channel.

    you can't bridge the amp with that sub because the lowest impedance bridged is 4 ohms, and you can only wire that sub to 2 or 8 ohms.
