I'm about to purchase another one of these amps for a bill and I was wondering how to hook them together. I assume all I need to do is hook it the same way I did the other except connect them via RCA input/outputs?????? Then have one amp per one 12" sub? I have two 12's, if you need the specs on them they're down below.

Thanks chris,

Ok MTX answered my questions.

If anyone else does a search later on this topic here's what MTX said.

Scott Johnson MTX: the 282 can be connected from the output of one to the input of another

Scott Johnson MTX: that Thunder 282 can be bridged

catch: ok so I can bridge each amp to one 12" . You dont need two subs to bridge?

Scott Johnson MTX: as long as you only have a single 4 ohm load
