It depends on setup, if you have a 4 ohm load the clone in bridged mode will blow up the driver. Matching impedance and power is key for proper setup. Some say the new sanways are 2 ohm stable but we need some testing for sure before we go nuts. I am running 8 SI 18's off of one channel in 2 ohm load and the other 4 off the other channel with a 4 ohm load. The key is design and how many real watts at what load is actually needed.

AVR-Yamaha A830
amps-5 Adcom 555 in 850 watt monoblock mode
sub amp-Sanway FP14K
LCR-Dual stacked BFM DR-250's
Surrounds- Dual stacked BFM W10's
subs-12 SI 18's ported 6hz.

Of course.

When I had the clone amps about 3 years ago, Sanway was clear that the clones were not 2ohm stable, so attempting it didn't make much sense.

The clone in a 4ohm bridge is to much power long term, but i guarantee i could still clip it at 50hz and up on drum kicks without hurting that B&C driver.

And I forgot to mentioned back then that I'm on a second level suspended floor. I don't know if that makes any difference. Anyway FWIW this is my last EQed REW run with the 3 215's running full range and the 4 S2's. More subs will added to the mix soon. Mainly horn subs..
