    Default (2) MM2104 + PA1200.1 setup ?'s

    I have a pair of Momo MM2104 (10-inch, 600 watt, 4 ohm) speakers in a homemade, sealed & padded speaker box (1-cubic foot of airspace each minus the presence of the woofer itself but that's another story) in the back of my '80 Volvo 240 GL (hehe, the cops never suspect).

    Currently, I have a 18-year old (damn thing still works) 300-watt (rated 400-watt after a quick trip back to the plant) Rockford-Fosgate Punch 2-channel amp powering both of them in a stereo setup (yes, there is such a thing as stereo bass). I originally had a pair of comp Cerwin-Vega 10" paper (cone) and foam (rim) speakers but the corrosive force of time, heat, and usage rendered them dead. I've re-coned them before but my music tastes have changed and I need/want tighter hitting (poly) subs.

    I've noted of late that I'm max'ing out my head unit and starting to distort the audio because I don't feel that I'm getting enough bass out of the back of the car. I want to bring the amount of *THUMP* up ergo I'm going to get a bigger amp(s).

    It's been a long time since I first set up the box so I've forgotten a lot of the wiring/amp tweaks and tricks so I'm looking for 'reminders' and 'hints'.

    I did a bit of research and noted that a Polk PA1200.1 will output 400 watts to a 4 ohm load but if I drop the stereo-aspect of my setup and hook up both subs in parallel, I'd get a 2 ohm load and therefore will be able to get the max 600-watts to both of the woofers (although in mono).

    Is this the best way to set this up if I want to maximize wattage and increase *thump*? What are my odds of blowing the woofers in a parallel setup (if any since the MM2104 is rated at 600-watts max)? Any other advice?

    This will at least start me up for later when I get dual VC SR woofers later and wanna run 1 Ohm. :-)

    TIA

    My bad...just noticed that there is a *car* subwoofer catagory. I've reposted this message there (but feel free to chime in if you have advice).
