not too bad at all for that price. is it fine to run both subs off the one? all you do is piggy back them off the same terminal dont you?


Yeah mate. Parallel wiring.

ahh thanks guys. but when you run both subs off a single channel, say a 400wrms at 4ohms, do u effectively only get about 200wrms going to each as the power is split?

Nope, you are halving the impedance. So you end up with a 2 ohm circuit and 700wrms into the 2 subs. So 350wrms per sub.

That's for 2 single voice coil 4ohm subs.

The MonoBlock comes with two speaker terminals which are internally wired in parallel.
