Zach wrote to me earlier this week with this question:
“Hello I just got a pyle 1200w 2 channel amp and have a 1600w power cap and am buying dual voice coil 4ohm kicker s10L7 10″ square sub. 1st will all that work together good and 2nd should I do a dual parallel to the amp or the series wiring? I’m not sure and can a 2 channel amp run 1 ch for the sub and the 2nd for the other speakers I’m thinking not, but didn’t understand. I thank you for your time -Zach”
Aside from the answer I’ve given in the video, the reason you can’t use the 2 channel amp to power the sub and the speaker is this. 2 channel amps are only designed to either run two speakers, a left and a right OR you can bridge the two channels or mix stereo and run it as a mono to a sub (or subs) with a final impedance of 4 ohm. I hope that helps. To have your question answered, write to me at [email protected] with the title of your email “Question of the week”.
