Such thing as splitting a monophonic amp to 2 channels???
I have a question about a nice amp I found (Vincent SP 991 Class A) that is a monophonic amplifier with 300 W RMS at 8 ohms or at Class A power it is 1x100 W RMS at 8 ohms. This amp provides 1x XLR input + 1x Cinch selectable input... having a toroidal 1.500 W transformer, a total capacitance of 120.000 mF for energy storage and 24 power transistors from Toshiba... whatever that means.
I need a power amp to feed 2 front speakers... so here is the QUESTION: can I >>>SPLIT<<< a mono amp to power both my front left & right speakers? Though this is a nice amp, my main objective is powering 2 current-hungry dynaudio towers with a sensitivity of 86 dB and an average impedance of 5.3 ohms. Will I be able to play them in stereo or pro logic II sound if I use a reciever with pre-outs and this mono amp? And is it worth the hastle of trying to get this amp to feed 2 speakers (if it's even possible) or find another amp... a stereo amp?
Sven,although the information on the 991 indicates that it has two sets of terminals to drive two speakers, this means that they would be monaural,since a mono amp can only amplify one channel, regardless of how many speakers are connected. If you already have the 991, you'd need a second mono amp; if you don't have it yet, you should get a stereo amp.
