    I was wondering if the plate amp at Parts express would run 2 sono subs"12"drivers"? 250watt #300-794 .Or is only meant for one sub.

    I will only be using it for low volume HT.Thanks

    It's rated to 4 ohms, not a specific number of drivers. What drivers are you referring to?

    Well, you could certainly do it. You'd have to wire each Shiva's voice coils in series for a 16-ohm load, then parallel the drivers to get back down to 8 ohms. I think that amp delivers 180 watts @ 8 ohms, so you'd get 90 per driver.
