Will it hurt the amp to run two tens?

    A bit more info on what subs you plan on running and as mentioned how you plan on wiring them (parallel, series) would help us help you :smile:

    For starters they are older JL subs. As money grows I would move to db's or mm (more amps). How would I wire them?

    Yes, it would run 2 db1040. You would probably run them in paralell which would give the subs 300 watts COMBINED (so 150 each). IMHO thats a bit low

    Thanks, my other option is to go for broke and get the pa1100.5 for all speakers but it to would be low paralleling the sub channel.
