Ok, so I picked up a Soundstream RA-100 MKII at work (there's a MKIII on ebay, I can't post the link yet). They were using them in a distributed audio system and had them laying around. I'd like to build a sub, this thing was $5, I figued why not. I can't find any info on this thing though. I've read that it's a 75W/4Ohm or 50W/8Ohm amp. First, I'm guessing the switch on it that says mono/stereo is for bridging? Also, how do you know if it wants 4ohms or 8? Does it not care? Can I bridge this thing and build a cheap sub? And by cheap, I mean like $30-$40 for a driver cheap. I'm just looking to get my hands dirty in speaker building. When I get more money, I'll go for something better, right now I'd like something to add to my surround system for movies that'll have more bottom end. Would a 10" be better with this amp than a 12"? Can I build it so that I can add a 12" sub to the system later and not make it sound bad? Will the Jets ever win another superbowl?
