2 different amps, to 2 of the same subs?

I have 2 12" Treos in the same box. Each able to pump out 750RMS. I have an amp im currently not using that will push 560RMS, and the other amp if bridged will pump around 450-650RMS (Guess). Would i be able to hook each amp upto a single subwoofer? Its obviously possible but the only thing that concerns me is their in the same box. Seems like a possible problem so thought id ask.


Also does anyone no the peak power of the Treo SSI 12" subs? There website description only talks about rms. http://www.treoonline.com/ssi.html


thanks for any help/suggestions

Hook up each amp to a driver. There might be some relatively small cancellation issues but the performance will be better this way compared to if you just tried to run both subs off a single amp (depending of course on your coils and how suited they are to the amps you're using).

i've seen this done before by competitors when they had no choice ... you need to level match the gain of your amps!!
this way it should reduce your problems considerably seeing as both amps would be somewhat matched ...

It would help if they were....as long as the two subs are in phase, the difference in power levels can be figured out.
