    Alright, I am trying add a little more bass to my theater room. I am adding my second subwoofer to my home theater, but I'm trying to save some money. I have a subwoofer that I paid about $600 for about 8 years ago. It is not powered and it can handle up to about 1500 watts. I have a home amplifier that has 3 channels. Each channel has an output of 200 watts. Is it possible to hook up more than one channel to this speaker. I did notice that there are 4 speaker terminal hookups? 2 negatives and 2 positives. The negatives and positive posts are hooked together with a brass plate. I don't think this parasound amp is a bridgeable amp. Atleast is doesn't say it is in the manual. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    It sounds like you have a dual voice coiils subwoofer. If so, you should be able to hook up two channels to each set of inputs but you MUST remove the jumpers that join them. If not, poof!
