is there any advantage for getting a mono amp to power a sub over bridging a 2 channel amp?

mono amps seem to be a bit pricier and produce less power. any explainations?

one channel can power up to two subs. With a two channel amp your wasting a whole channel.

If you only have one speaker why would you want a 2 channel amp. mono block amps where made for subs. How many ohms does the speaker run?

fosgate punch 200 monoblock? it would touch that sub..it'll push it pretty good too...either or would be fine...but the monoblocks made to take a beating...if its a dual 2...then just parallel it and bridge mono on a 2 ch amp...it should run fine...

I like the idea of bridging an 2 channel amp. If you get a quality high output amp and bridge it you'll have plenty of watts pushing you sub. Then if you decide to get something different you still have a 2 channel amp that you will be able to use. I think they are more versitle.
