Is it possible/safe/feasable to run two ep4000s to one power hungry driver?(LMS ultra 5400). If so how?

LMS Ultra Power handling: 2,000 watts RMS
EP4000: 2400Watts bridged into 4Ohms according to manual.

Do you really need more power?

From info I have gathered on forums, the LMS is very power hungry and many supply them with 4-5kw. Even just so I know, is it possible? I dont have the funds to do it yet even if it could be done. Thanks.

Nice thought, but you could not bridge the Ep then, because each coil is 2ohm and the amp will not run in 2ohm bridged without damage. I could have swore that I read a thread somewhere, someplace where a guy had used two EP4000's on one LMS5400. I may be wrong though. Sure would be easier to buy another amp than try to sell my existing one and buy a giant one.

Bridging an EP4000 into two ohms will kill the amp in very quick times. Just buy a Marathon MA-5050 amp and run it in bridged 4ohms 5000 watts. That will be more than enough power.

i don't see a reason to do this, the volume difference will be litterally 3dbs... buy a second sub. its the same gain, on the same amount of power.
and will halve your excursions.
