Thanks for the info, but now I'm *really* confused!



Do you mean a Phase Linear 300 Series Two, or a Sunfire 300x2 series II? Neither of those are series bridgeable without an adaptor/modification. There's a Carver PM-300, but that's not rated for a 4R load when series bridged, and even then I doubt you'd safely get more than 400W.

A pic would be invaluable here...

BTW the PL300-Two (a home amp) is rated to no more than -1dB at 11Hz, but has subsonic protection to shut down if you try to drive her at 10Hz or below. The PM-300 (a pro amp) has maybe -3dB to 4Hz, and is also protected below that. The Sunfire has separate "lab direct" inputs if you want DC coupling and are feeling brave...
I looked at the manual for it today and it is not bridgeable at 4 OHM. The carver amps are somewhat hard to determine the model. I think it is the Sunfire Series II 300-2 according to user manual i looked up on the sunfire site. Looks like it anyway.

Thanks, Ron!

The Sunfire 300x2 is a nice amp, pretty much the definition of "load invariant". I'm sure she'll do great at sub duty. Even though she's not set up for series bridging, you can "strap" the "current" outputs together for parallel bridging (procedure is in the owner's manual). That won't get you more power, but it'll make sure you don't "run out of steam". BTW, if she's a Series II, I believe she's actually 325x2(650x2 into 4R).

If you still have your heart set on a Crown, I'll trade you a new XTI2000 for your old Sunfire any day!
