Can you power 2 subs with a mono amp?

A mono block amplifier has only 1 channel and cannot be bridged. The 2 outputs of a mono block amplifier are there to easily connect multiple subwoofers.

Should Subs be in mono?

As a general rule of thumb, it’s considered common practice to sum anything below 200hz to mono. This means your bass, sub-bass, and kick drum will almost always be summed to mono. In this is the case, you only need to be placing the lower frequencies into mono, and not the entire instrument or sound.

Is a monoblock amp good for subs?

A monoblock amp meets the specific requirements of a subwoofer without compromise. The circuitry of a mono amp creates power for low frequencies. A good mono amplifier can handle all the power without overheating.

Does a 2 channel amp need 2 subs?

Most 2 channels amps are bridgeable at 2 ohms. If your subs are 4 ohms each, you can wire them in parallel to make a 2 ohm effective load and get the most wattage out of you amp. If you wire each channel separately at 4 ohms, your amp might not even put out the wattage to max out the subwoofers.

Why should Bass be mono?

Bass frequencies have a lot of energy (they move lots of air) and will take up more space in a mix than mid or high frequencies. Most subwoofers are mono anyway so you’ll have more control over the sound being played back on different systems if you keep the bass in mono.

What are monoblock amps used for?

Typically, a mono amp is used to power a subwoofer. A channel refers to the frequencies of sounds that will be sent to that speaker. For example, if you have a good subwoofer amp (CLAS D Monoblock 1-ohm stable amp) then its only going to output a low frequency (bass) sound.
