The SA1000 does not have 2 sets ouf outputs it simply has a pair of binding posts for the same single output. I know this amp very well as its what I start out with for the Turbo upgrade for the MFW-15 and a few others, soon to have something for the Empire.

Measure the resistance of the 2 drivers the way they are connected, I am guessing its 4ohm, if it is your fine, just run one pair of wires to the amp.

Thanks!

Kevin,
Great insight. Just what I was looking for.

Would anyone like to comment on how much power I really need?
The original spec from a Epik was "300w RMS with 750w RMS short term" for what it's worth. I rarely push them hard, but do enjoy showing guests how good 5.1 can sound when you care about how a system sounds. As much as I love the dual drivers and look of the Legend, if I could buy an even better sub for the price of the amp I will need to bring the Legend back to life, it's probably not worth it.
Thanks,
Kawg

I can't remember anyone posting about trying to push a lot more power into one, but easy enough to get a reasonably priced amp (like an iNuke 1000dsp for $200) that can provide sufficient power, cheaper than building your own box and buying drivers...unless you have better already of course.
