    hello OT,

    i will be running 1 pioneer 12" sub which is rated at 160Ws

    i was wondering if bridging an US Acoustics USX-2050 amp which is rated at 160x1 would be ok?

    thanks

    If you are going to run that amp in bridged mode, your sub would need to be at 4 ohm impedance.

    yea my sub is 4 ohm... sorry about that.

    do you think bridging it would be a good idea?

    lots of people bridge their amps to power subwoofers (like getting a 4 channel amp, using two for components and bridging the other two for woofer)

    Nothing wrong with it assuming the amp is capable of 160W bridged and stable at 4 ohms, which you say it is. It's very common.
