    I am selling a Power Amp (specs below)... The guy that is interested in the Amp has asked me...

    "Can this amp drive two subwoofers????

    I want to have crossfiring subs.

    I have the matching KR-X1000 receiver."

    I'm assuming that he would take the "pre out" for the sub from receiver... and then he would plug it into the "mono/left" channel... and then hook up his sub's on the right and left speaker connectors...

    I've never used these power amps that I am selling so I was hopping you guys might be able to help me anwer this...

    Thanks!!!

    Are the subs powered ? The hookup options are different for powered vs passive subs.

    If it's a regular stereo amp, I'm thinking that he'll need to have a Y-connection at the inputs so that the L & R see the same signal. Then, hook up two subs as you describe.
