It's my belief that the bret is trying to get more juice into subs or something by daisy chaining amps together. It's also my opinion that when he says panzi, he really means pansie . [img]graemlins/freak.gif[/img]

Yes you can bridge amps in series, if you have:

1. mono block amps
2. a bridging modual

ok thx Haunz & Fabe, I was just wondering if I could plug my two amps in series (2X1200) to install more subs on the same circuit. Does it lower impedance limits and/or does a setup like this increase power? Where can I find a bridging module?

Thx a lot Ettore, I am sorry I wasn't more precise about the question but I am a bit embarrassed, I actually got 4 MTX 9500 series which I will never get rid of, but with the money left I could only afford 2 used Pheonix Gold QX 180.2. They are 2 channels 180rms x1 @ 4ohm. This money is actually my student loan so if someone could help me out so I can have some musik going...

Dude, those subs require ~4Kw of power, so if you use those amps it's like trying to bake a turkey in a toaster-->something will blow up! [img]graemlins/freak.gif[/img]

Now, if you don't have cash, you should trade some subs for an amp or two; but I suggest that perhaps you return them and get your money back so that you can continue to go to school.

Next time think about your budget after your schooling. [img]graemlins/jack.gif[/img]

Alternatively, you could give me the subs (all 4) and I'll buy you a McDonald's happy meal. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
