    I plan to run 2 4ohm subs (yes they are car ones) through the 2nd speaker outputs on my NAD C370 amp, what is the best way to connect these as I do not want to drive the amp too hard, or potentially damage it.

    is it better to set the speakers up for 8 ohms or bridge the speaker outputs to drive them, of course I only think I know how to bridge/set them up as 8 ohm so if you could give an idoits guide of how to go about this.

    tia peeps
    :thumbsup:

    So you are running 2 standard speakers and want to run 2 subs on top of that? If thats the case it really wouldnt be a good idea as you are going to put pretty big demands on your amp.

    yes, that was the plan, tbh I set up one sub and it sounds crap, only slightly better bass than my home speakers, so I dont think I will bother any more and get saving for a proper home cinema sub :smashin:

    that because theres no crossover i assume, the subs were fed a full range signal, which would make them sound muddy and horrible. you could always build your own with the two drivers :devil:
