Default GC able to power a Sub?

Is a GC amp able to power a sub?

What kind of power can be expected from one of these?

Ive never tried building one before but I really wnat to have a go.

Are the able to drive a 4ohm load?

Or are they more for really sensitive easy to move speakers?

Depends on what type of sub?

The 3886 chips will drive 4 ohms and you can use more than one amp to increase the power output.

If you have never built a GC before, build a basic one and try it with your main speakers. That should give you the experience and knowledge to build something to drive that sub.
The truth need not be veiled, for it veils itself from the eyes of the ignorant.
