    OK. I have a brand new MTX Thunder942 amplifier.

    The manual states this information:

    RMS Power measured at 12.5 Volts DC
    175W x 2 into a 4 ohm load
    350W x 2 into a 2 ohm load
    700W bridged into a 4 ohm load

    I also have an Audiobahn bandpass enclosure. My Audiobahn bandpass box has (2) 10" subs (4 ohm impedance of each sub) The bandpass enclosure is exactly the same as this link:

    The bandpass enclosure has two speaker terminals on either side of the enclosure. So basically, each sub is wired accordingly. I don't know the technical term of this kinda wiring... but I am wondering if this new amplifier I have will work at all? Am I only going to be seeing the 175W x 2 (per the amp manual) into this enclosure because of the way it is wired?? Others have said 'yes...', while others at other forums have said I will see more power than that. Can I get this thing down into a 2 ohm load (so I have more power going to each sub??) or is that just not possible??

    Hopefully, someone can chime in and lend some info...

    Thanks in advance... I can try and answer any other questions, if need be.

    the best you can do with your amp is get 175W to each sub. Wiring them in parallel to create a 2 ohm load and running it off 1 amp channel will still only give you 175W to each sub. You won't need more then that with a bandpass enclosure anyway.
