    I have a Adcom 555, 200wpc or 600 bridged. I'm going to use 2 8ohm subs. Should I just go w/ a 2ch. setup, or bridge the amp? Then the 2 8ohm subs wired in paralell would put a 4ohm load on the amp, series it would be 16ohm. Which way would you guys go?

    Meaux,

    It would be best to just go two-channel. The Adcom is not designed for 4-omh loads bridged, and 16 ohms would suck the power down to 300 watts, or 150 per speaker.

    Happy Holidays,
