2 ohms per channel: 1250W

8 ohms: 1750W
4 ohms: 2400W

2 ohms per channel: 1000W
Peak Power, bridged mode
8 ohms: 2800W
4 ohms: 4000W
Can I bridge 2 speakers together by putting 2 wires in each positive and negative terminal?
Finding woofers under 8 ohms is a real pain the the butt but would be great
The boxes are both 2 cu ft (I know it's small)
The ports are 2 and a half inches across circles
I'm not looking for super low bass because it's hard to amplify that in large venue applications.
If you are asking whether you can run 2 amp channels to both drivers in parallel (1st amp channel to both speakers, and the 2nd amp channel to both speakers too). NO, you can't run 2 amp channels to 2 speakers like that. You can run 1 pair of wires from each channel to each sub. Or wire the subs in series and run 1 bridged amp to them.
LOL, I know the amp specs. I have 3 of them in my living room. They are tapping the clip lights right now playing some Megadeath countdown. BTW those #'s are too high.
Here is a better set of #'s
It's an EP2500 with a ep4000 nameplate on it. If you open it up the transformers are still labeled ep2500.
Don't get me wrong, I think it is almost universally a bad idea to use a pair of 12's for subwoofers for pro audio in big spaces. I'd start with a pair of Othorns and then build 2 more. But I'm glad to help or point you in the right direction if you answer my questions:
What are you trying to do?
What frequencies are you wanting this to play? 30hz+, 300hz+, 3000hz+?
How loud do you need them to be?
Do you have outboard dsp for these amp channels?
Break out the tape measure and be EXACT. ...to the 16th
How big exactly are the interior measurements of the box? Exterior dimensions with the wall thickness would work too. Is the interior port diameter measurement 2.5" diameter, or is it 2.375"? How long is the port?
