    Anyone ever hook up 2 sub plate amps to a dvc subwoofer with success? Thinking about condensing 2 sub enclosures and getting a dvc sub. The amps are Bash 300s.....

    More info please...
    Why would BASH amp be any different than how this would be done otherwise? The only thing that "might" pose a problem is if two amps cause too much heat inside the box...

    No prob at all. Just wondering if anyone's done it, and if they have what woofer brand did they use?, and how were the enclosures built to house the 2 plate amps in/on the enclosure.

    What driver? Since the BASH amps create their rated power into 4 ohms, then you will need to find a dual 4 ohm driver that can handle 600w or a dual 8 ohm driver that can handle about 400w.
    You need to also make sure the gain of both amps are set identical. How would you do that? Digital multi-meter and test tones.
    You will need to set the phase of both to 0 and hope the controls are calibrated the same.
