Can I use a Dayton HPSA-1000 subwoofer amp with my SpeakerCraft BassX-2 in-ceiling subwoofer? Here's my situation. I was able to purchase a brand new SpeakerCraft BassX-2 in-ceiling subwoofer (without the BB2502 amp) CHEAP ($99.). So I needed a subwoofer amp to push it. I just purchased the Dayton HPSA 1000-R subwoofer amplifier online and it arrived today (also pretty cheap - $275.). I made a mistake and didn't realize the Dayton was a mono amp. The SpeakerCraft BassX-2 is a dual driver (opposed in the enclosure) that is spec'ed for the SpeakerCraft BB2502 amplifier (also a 1000 watt sub amp, but I cannot find any other specs for that amp or subwoofer and my requests to SpeakerCraft via email have fallen on deaf ears).
The Dayton HPSA 1000-R pushes 512 watts into 8 ohms and 1000 watts into 4 ohms.
The SpeakerCraft BassX-2 subwoofer (in the box, unconnected) is reading 2.7 ohms at the terminal for each of the drivers. When I connect the drivers together to one speaker cable, they still read 2.7 ohms.
Can I connect the leads from the two SpeakerCraft subwoofer drivers together and run them to the single mono output on the Dayton amp or will they detonate/damage each other?
Please help! This was the last piece to the home theater and I am ready to install.
