    I searched, but came up empty. Just looking for a quick answer.

    I have a 175w x 2 amp that is not bridgeable, I am looking to power a tempest with it temporarily. Can I run one channel to each voice coil? Or do I need to use one channel and wire the vc's in parallel or series?

    Help!

    Yes, that's what I'm doing with an old Pro-Logic receiver that's 100Wx2. Works just fine on my Tempest for normal listening volumes.

    I had the same question when I was building my Tempest sonosub and the "experts" here agreed that I could do this. I'll try to find a link and post it here later.

    Here it is. Scroll down to the reply by Dan Wiggins of Adire Audio. Straight from the horse's mouth!
