    Bridged means its combing channels. How many watts is the sub rated for continuously?

    May I ask what amp it is.Except for maybe some car amplifiers it is very unusual for an amplifier to have the capability to drive a 2 ohm load in bridged mode.

    1st. you can't bridge a mono amp. There are some you can strap together(ie. using 2 amps on one speaker for more power).

    2nd. Boss only makes the best fire starters in the world, and they label them as amps, stay away.

    It probably is, but I've seen to many boss amps either smoke, or cause a fire. They are mass produced low quality amps.
