Don't get into bridging amplifiers. It isn't something you want to do in home audio. If you want to use passive subwoofers, then a stereo amp will handle the two subwoofers. You can use an RCA splitter cable to get the subwoofer content to them from the preamp output.

I don't see a problem with bridging an amp. So if you already have that amp I would use it. Provided it IS bridgable and the subwoofers are at a stable impedance for the amp. For instance, most amps are not stable if bridged with a 4ohm load and very very few are stable at 2ohms bridged. So make sure it's capable.


You haven't chosen your subwoofer yet? Most subs come with an amplifier built in. If you're going to buy a passive subwoofer then you'll need your amp. But that seems unlikely.


Hooking it up is easy. Just use an RCA splitter.

There are many amp options. Depends on your budget of course. But a lot of people use Behringer products for an affordable option. Crown XLS amps. The Dayton SA1000. Etc.


What is your budget ? For subs and amp. You'll probably need a minimum of $500 to make something happen. That's even if you were to go with an assemble yourself kit or something.

thank you very much for your help...and the budget is perfect....now active subwoofers is costing almost $500 Each....so now am thinking for an option which is

Sony Xplod -SW1 In-car Amplifier 140 W RMS Car Subwoofer Amplifier X 2 nos @ 120$

Sony Xplod - XS-GTX121LT Loaded Enclosure Series Subwoofer with box 12 Inch (Tube) @200$


those items are easily available..now am thinking about the power supply...i have seen few youtube clippings guyz running the amp with computer power supply..and Pyramid ac to dc convertor which is bit expensive...so any advices on operating those in a Computer power supply which will be much cheaper...and as you said overall expenditure will be $500 it seems...
