    Well, my Tempest is coming today and I was wondering...
    How should I wire the Tempest? I can either do it STEREO or MONO. Is there an advantage to doing it one way? My amp provides 250 Watts/channel to an 8ohm load. Or.. I can wire it for mono and get 750Watts to a 4ohm load.
    Also, when I lay the batting material, should I line the top and top endcaps? or just the sides? What about the port, should that have any batting material around it?
    Thanx
    Mike

    I'm not a true techy, but if your using one sub, most likely on the LFE channel of your receiver, why wouldn't you go mono and bridge. I've always been under the assumption, the more power the better. I'm sure someone else here will give you the technically correct answer, and the technical reason.
