Is putting two amplifiers in parallel a common practice when more power is needed? I mean, of course you could just buy a more powerful amplifier to satisfy power needs; but I'm just wondering if it's possible to take two 100W amplifiers and hook the speaker to the outputs of both in order to acheive 200W. This has probably been covered a few times but the search wasn't helping. Thanks.

This is not common.


It can be done with identical amp channels and you need to level match the signals.


It's just easier and safer to upgrade to a more powerful amp.

Sure, Wiley E. Coyote does this king of thing all the time, and we all know how well his schemes work out!

You can not do that all you will do is damage the amps and throw your money away
