alotta 4 channel amps also require 2 sets of rca audio cables. so make sure your deck has 2 sets of outs....

2 channel amps tend to have more rms power than 4 channel ones as well. also, alot of 4 channel amps have built in crossovers so you can adjust sensitivity ranges and connect 2 speakers and 2 subs to the same amp and still get those highs and lows. is it recommended? probably not, but if you looking for just some sound and bass, not a problem....

I've been gone for too long..

Let's just answer his question, 2 channel amps have 2 channels, 4 channel amps have 4 channels.. a channel means one pair of pos. neg.

and your wrong about not a good idea about using a 4-channel... You can wire channel 1 and 2 to components in the front and rear fill in the back, and have channels 3 and 4 running 1, 2, etc subwoofers... some people swear by their 4-channel systems and wouldnt change it for a 2-channel to run this, and a mono-block to run that...


also, I stomped the yard in my single cab with an autotek900.4, cdt eurofit 6.5" comps on a satnet 480 crossover, and two RE RE12's vented in 3 cubes @ 32 hz..
