One of my friends has a mtx thunder 4022 2 channel 280x1at 40hms And he wanted to know if he could put a 12" DVC 350rms Bridged At 2ohms The amp Is 20hm stable if it has one sub on each channel at 20hms but it dosent say if it's 2ohms stable bridged. thanks for any help.

Unregistered guest cant give a bridged 2 channel amp
a 2 ohm load, unless its 2 ohm stable...
but I dont fully understand what youre saying.
Is the sub he has a dual 2 ohm or dual 4 ohm?
If its dual 2 ohm, you can wire the coils in
series for a 4 ohm load (most youre gonna get out
of that amp)
If its a dual 4 ohm sub...its not really gonna
work out too well with that amp.

Hey lil, I don't know which mtx model your friend has. If the amp is 2ohms stable on each channel, then yes, you can connect 2ohm subs on them. However, if the amp is not 2ohms stable bridged, then you won't be able to use it as 2ohms.
Some 2 channel amps do support 4ohms x 2 and 2ohms x 2, but 4ohms x1 (bridged).

Simple answer:
If the amp is 2 ohm stereo stable, it'll be 4 ohm stable when bridged.

when an amplifier is bridged internally, it will see half of the actual load, which is why amplifier ratings are always stable at twice the load bridged as compared to stereo.
