    Colin,

    So what are you hoping to do? Run the front speakers in stereo, and then run a "bridged" channel to drive the subs?

    It looks like the amp is capable of running in 3-channel mode (stereo front pair, plus subs)....I'm NOT sure if the built in crossover will work right setup that way or not.

    In any case, to wire the subs safely, you are going to need to get more details on what specific model they are. JL Audio has a number of single voice coil and dual voice coil models and within those categories, they have different ohm ratings......what you DON'T want to do is wire them to the amp in parallel (dropping the ohm load) until you understand what that load will acutally BE. If you end up below 2 ohms, the amp will either go into "protection mode" or simply burn up.....

    Where is the documentation from the amp, and the speakers??? You might be able to get copies from the manufacturer's websites once you have accurate model #'s.....
